Rolos Cookies

Devils Food Cake Mix (Duncan Hines is the best!)
1/2 C. Butter flavored Crisco
2 Eggs
Handful of Powdered Sugar
1 Bag of Rolo Candies

Unwrap rolo candies and place into bowl. Set aside for later.
Cut shortening into cake mix and add in eggs. This will create a THICK dough almost the consistency of bread. Knead with hands for easiest mixing.

Roll spoonfuls of dough into balls. Squish 1 rolo candy into EACH dough ball and cover all sides of the rolo candy completely with dough so that you create a little rolo pocket.

Place 12 per cookie sheet and bake at 350º for 9 minutes.

Remove from cookie sheet and dust with powdered sugar for garnish.
