When I stuffed Rolos inside of peanut butter cookies it was such a huge hit that I knew I had to do it again. Again, stuffing Rolos inside of cookies isn’t new. I’m not the first to do it and I won’t be the last. But today I’m sharing with you new-to-me Rolos stuffed inside of oatmeal cookies.

I love oatmeal cookies almost more than any other kind. They’re soft and chewy because of the oats and brown sugar and I love the flavor of cinnamon. With the added chocolate inside they’re SO good!

What makes the best oatmeal cookies?

For me, making oatmeal cookies with brown sugar make them just the best! The flavor of the brown sugar along with the cinnamon is fantastic and I love how brown sugar keeps these soft for days.

If you want an easy cookie recipe anyone can make, be sure to try this one. These are great plain or with chocolate chips, but I love stuffing candy inside.

If you don’t want to use Rolos you can stuff them with anything you love, like:

  • Mini Snickers
  • Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Or any other candy!

How do you make stuffed oatmeal cookies?

It’s so simple to make this easy cookie recipe.

cookie dough with oats

Simply mix the dough with a mixer. The dough gets stiff so it might be hard to stir by hand.

Do you use quick oats or old fashioned oats in cookies?

I use quick oats in these cookies. I like the texture of quick oats better than old-fashioned.

Did you know that quick oats are simply old-fashioned oats that are pulverized in a food process or blender? You can make your own!

These were a huge hit with our family. They’re the kind of cookie that you can’t stop eating and just keep going back for more.

How do you store oatmeal cookies?

You can store these on the counter in an airtight container. I also freeze them! Simply store in an airtight container or bag in the freezer for up to a month. They’re just as good defrosted and it means you can have cookies all the time!

  1. so i am attempting to make the cookies now, and the batter is super gooey and sticking all over my hands and not rolling like batter should. it feels like there is not enough flour, but i know that if i add anymore its all i will be able to taste. what should i do?

    1. I’m sorry! I just saw this comment, was off the grid yesterday. Try chilling the dough before rolling. Sometimes the butter just needs to firm up before it’ll roll pretty!

  2. I love any thing that is stuffed with rolos. Cookies never last long enough to be frozen in my house. Too many cookie monsters lurking about.
