Rocky Road Cookies

As we inch closer to Christmas time the number of people looking for a unique cookie to include with their dessert trays and platters — these little chunks of gooey, chocolatey goodness are a super cute addition. They are definitely rich, and the chocolatey goodness mixed perfectly with a little bit of almond and some marshmallow bits… And you can bet nobody will bring the same treat to your holiday celebration 🙂

You will need:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup Mallow Bits*
1 cup chopped or sliced almonds

*many grocery stores sell mallow bits like this, but if you’re having trouble finding them, remember you can always take the mallow packets from hot cocoa 🙂

Preheat your oven to 350. Start off by creaming your butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs in one at a time and combine completely. Mix in vanilla. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt, and mix until just combined. Fold in your almonds, chocolate chips, and mallow bits, carefully so you don’t crush the mallow bits too much!

Scoop rounded tablespoons onto a prepared cookie sheet, and stick a few mallow bits on top of each cookie for a prettier finished product. Bake for about 8 minutes, until cookies are set on the edges but still soft in the middle — don’t overbake, you want these babies to be gooey when you bite in! Allow to cool for a few minutes then move to a wire rack to cool completely 🙂
