Ooey Gooey Chocolate Cookies

     Hello!  The title of this post says it all - these are incredibly ooey gooey cookies!  The original recipe came from Lil' Luna's blog (here) via Pintrest (where else?).  While they do take a bit of time to assemble they are definitely worth it!  The cookie is soft with just a bit of tang from the cream cheese and the center is sooo gooey from the Rolo candy.  
Make sure Rolo is completely covered by dough
     To create the cookie balls and keep them uniform in size I used a Pampered Chef scoop (I love that thing!).  When inserting the Rolo into the dough I found that the dough was getting a bit sticky after several minutes and refrigerated the dough when it wasn't in use. 
     The original recipe says to bake cookies for 10-12 minutes but I found 12-14 minutes was a better fit for my oven.  And when cooling I made sure to have a piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil underneath the wire rack to catch any of the caramel drips (there were a few).
     While I'll eat cookies at any time, I recommend eating these the day of baking... I served them at a Stampin' Up! workshop the day after baking and found them to be a bit chewier than the previous day, but they were still delicious!
