Rocky road chocolate cookies

    28 min

    A soft chocolate cookie that is reminiscent of rocky road thanks to mini marshmallows dotted on the top of each cookie. Very easy to make and fun to get the kids involved. Take care not to over-bake.

    Fabulous! Quick to make, and they look and taste great!  -  19 Jan 2013


    These cookies taste great and are very easy to throw together. The only down side is that the marshmellows melt away in the oven. Try placing the marshmellows on top immediately after the cookies come out of the oven. Enjoy!  -  13 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delecatably orgasmic! This was an amazing recipe base. Made a few changes: Melted 1c. Double choc chips W/butter Used Almonds instead, Used 1/2c. Brown Sugar + 1/2c white. Rolled 2 mini mellows inside, making a ball. Then topped it with one. These cookies came out awesome!They are like Rocky Road truffles when made this way.
