Sea Salt Chocolate Rolo Cookies

About a month ago, my coworker offered me a rolo. I declined the offer telling her, "I've never had one but I really don't like caramel because it's hard to chew." She then insisted that I try it because, "the caramel and chocolate melt together like butter." I un-wrapped the little pot of gold and boy was she right. The two ingredients just melted together like magic and now, I'm hooked. Rolo everything. Here's one of those, "you can't just eat one" cookie recipes….but then again, aren't they all!?
