  • 1 Box (15.25 oz) Chocolate cake mix I use Devil's food cake
  • 1/4 Cup Vegetable oil
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 18 Rolos
  • 9 Large Marshmallows cut in half


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 Degrees F
  • In a medium bowl, mix the cake mix, vegetable oil and eggs until well mixed. Let rest 10-15 minutes.
  • Once the dough has rested, form into balls about 1.5 inches and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat, leaving about 2 inches of room between the cookies.
  • Press one Rolo into the center of each cookie.
  • Bake for 8 mintues, then remove the cookies from the oven and gently press half a marshmallow onto each cookie, cut side down. Return to the oven and bake for 4 minutes or until marshmallow is slightly melted and edges of cookies feel set.
  • Remove from the oven, let cook 2-3 minutes then move to a cooling rack.


If you can't find Rolos you can use baking caramels or any other chocolate covered caramel.
If you don't have large marshmallows you can simply use a few mini marshmallows on each cookie.
