Chocolate! A girl's best friend! I love it so I knew these cookies would be a hit even if I was the only one eating them. Sadly, I was not the only one eating them. Turns out boys like chocolate, too! Who knew?? Even without the Rolo candies in them, these cookies are a little bit of chocolate heaven! Try a different candy inside if you want...or just a bag of chocolate chips. Yummers!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
