Rocky Road Cookies

I was bored the other day, so I started going through my pantry and pulled out what I had: mixed nuts, mini marshmallows, white chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips. I knew that I had to make some rocky road cookies! I love marshmallows in anything, especially cookies. These cookies were exactly what I had in mind, although I may try them again with a chocolate cookie. I sent the majority of these with my brother and his friends when they went to Disneyland for the weekend. I hope that they liked them! Anyway, the recipe can be found after the jump, as always.

Rocky Road Cookies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 15-20 cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped nuts
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  2. Beat together the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the egg, then beat in the egg yolk. Beat in the vanilla.
  3. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture until just moistened. Mix in the nuts, chips, and marshmallows by hand.
  4. Roll into balls or drop by spoonfuls onto a greased and/or lined baking sheet, and press down on the cookies with your palm a bit to flatten (not too much!).
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges look golden brown. Remember that they need to cool on the baking sheet, so even if they don’t look quite set, it’s okay because they continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow to finish cooling on a rack or on a different surface. Makes about 15-20 cookies.

    Saw this recipe tonight and decided to make them since the pictures looked so delicious! As I started making them, the mix looked (and tasted) scrumptious. I followed all the directions as stated, and mixed the marshmallows in by hand. However, when I took the cookies out, the were completely flat and there are holes where the marshmallows had melted. It is are super hard to scrape the flattened cookie mass of the pans. What I can taste of them is very good! And they are rather chewy (which I like) . But, I don’t think I will be making them again. The mess just isn’s worth it. Maybe if I add the marshmallows at a later time. Any suggestions are welcome!

    • Sydney says:

      Emma: A few things may have happened. For example, you may have not beat the sugars and butter together for long enough (it should be at least 3 minutes, no less), and your baking soda may have been expired (it really only lasts for about 6 months in the cupboard). I’m sorry that they didn’t turn out well! Sometimes that happens – I know it does for me! I hope that you try again – maybe without the marshmallows, just to see how the cookies are?

    Gia: I used mixed nuts. There were peanuts, walnuts, pecans, and cashews, I think. Whatever is convenient works!
