Family Recipe Friday - Rolo Cookies

This is not an old recipe but one that is requested often and I thought it would make a great addition to a family cook book.  I am trying to collect recipes for my girls, I know one day they will marry,  so that they always have a little family in the form of recipes with them.

Rolo Cookies
2-1/4 cups flour 
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1 cup sugar 
1 cup brown sugar 
1 cup butter, softened 
2 teaspoons vanilla 
2 eggs 
9 oz. package of Rolo candy 

Preheat oven to 350F. Beat sugars and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Add flour, cocoa powder  and baking soda, blend well, chill dough in refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Roll 1 tablespoon of dough in palm of hand to form a ball. Press Rolo into ball, covering it completely. Flatten bottom of cookie into palm of hand. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes.
