This copycat homemade Rolos recipe is so incredibly easy to make. I love chocolate and I love caramel.
Rolos have long since been one of my favorite candies to eat. Especially the tasty chocolate on the outside and the smooth delicious caramel on the inside. It is hard for me to think of a better combination of flavors.
If you are a chocolate and caramel lover like me you have got to make these homemade Rolos. You will not be disappointed. If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get started!
Begin by melting the chocolate either in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave or use the double boiler method on the stovetop. If using the microwave, use bursts of 25 seconds and then stir the chocolate, then 25 seconds, then stir. Until fully melted.
Spoon the chocolate into the silicone candy mold until it is about 1/3 full. Use a small clean paintbrush or a straw and paint chocolate up around the sides of each cavity of the mold. This will make sure the caramel is completely covered by chocolate.
Place the silicone mold in the fridge so the chocolate can set. This will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
In a microwave-safe bowl add the caramels and cream. Melt them in the microwave, like the chocolate, using bursts of 25 seconds and stirring, etc. You may also melt them in a small pot on the stovetop with medium-low heat.
Remove the mold of chocolate and spoon in caramel into the cavities until almost full. Then come back and spoon on more chocolate covering the caramel completely. If needed you can reheat the chocolate in the bowl until it is fully melted again. Place the mold back in the fridge and let the homemade Rolos set for 30 minutes.
Remove the Rolos from the fridge and the molds. If you are having a little trouble getting them out, just tug gently on the sides of the silicone mold which will loosen them up. Now enjoy!
