Yield: 4 dozen cookies
Beat butter or margarine until creamy. Gradually add 1 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat well. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cocoa. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in 1/2 cup nuts (optional).
Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Combine remaining 1/2 cup nuts with the 1 tablespoon sugar (if using nuts). Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Work with one part at a time, leaving the rest in the refrigerator. Divide each part into 12 pieces. Quickly press each piece of dough around a chocolate-covered caramel (Rolo). Roll into ball. Dip one side into sugar. (Additional sugar may be needed for dipping if nuts are omitted.)
Place sugar side up 2- inches apart on baking sheets. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool 1 minute. Remove to wire rack and cool completely.
