I had these chocolatey rocky road cookies years ago at a friends house. My favorite part is biting into the chew marshmallows. Although, the creamy chips and chocolatey flavor you cannot beat either. I love these are easy and quick to make. I also love how these rocky road cookies are totally unique than all other cookies out there.
How To Make Rocky Road Cookies
They’re really very simple to make, but there are a few tips and tricks so that they bake just perfect.
Start out by adding your sugar butter together. Cream together. I love using Bob’s Red Mills products. You can find the at pretty much every store. They are such quality ingredients- and with whom I spoke with they’ve been the best people.
Add in your pudding, flour and other ingredients. Mix until smooth.
Next add in your marshmallows and chips. You can choose to use peanut butter chips or butterscotch! Can also add in some chopped peanuts (especially if you went with the butterscotch chips).
TIP: Don’t mix the marshmallows too much. Just lightly incorporate the chips and marshmallows.
When baking these cookies they do best to keep in a ball. Don’t flatten them out. You want the dough condensed so as it does naturally flatten out in the oven it will not be too thin. The marshmallows need the surrounding dough for support and to keep them from overcooking. You’ll probably have a few casualties with the marshmallows on the outside, but thats totally ok!
Bake and let cool!! Be careful not to let these babies overcook :)
