Round chocolate covered caramels make these cookies chewy and rich!
Heat oven to 375°F.
Combine 1 tablespoon milk and 1 1/2 teaspoons espresso powder in small bowl; set aside.
Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add dissolved espresso powder mixture and eggs; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, cocoa and baking soda. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in chopped pecans, if desired.
With lightly floured hands, shape dough into 48 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place balls into lightly greased mini muffin pan cups. Bake 6-8 minutes or until puffed and set. (Do not overbake.) Immediately press 1 candy, top-side down, into each cookie. Cool 10 minutes in pan; run small sharp knife around inside edge of cups to remove cookies. Place onto cooling rack. Cool completely.
Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder into 1 tablespoon water in small bowl. Stir in powdered sugar and additional water, if necessary, for desired glazing consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies.
Store cookies in container with tight-fitting lid.

Is Rolo the candy of choice here, or are there others that work better?
To make them on a cookie sheet, I made the 1 1/4" balls like it said but then I pushed a rolo into it and and reformed the ball around the rolo. I baked them for 8-9 minutes.
These cookies were very good. Moist and had a wonderful flavor. I would definitely make them again. My only hint is use the small mini cupcake papers, there is no problem removing from tray and the cookies look so festive
These were a HIT with my husband and four teenage sons! A pretty simple recipe to make. They are rich and dense like a brownie. I am going to try flavored coffee or possibly flavored creamer for the glaze next time I make them.

Spring is finally in the air! The days are getting longer, my commute is getting shorter (thanks to less ice and snow), and we just bought a pair of pint-sized, yellow rubber boots for our toddler to go puddle-stomping. After a very long, very cold winter, I feel like a mama bear coming out of hibernation. Thank goodness for sunshine!
