Ooey Gooey Rocky Road Cookies

Ever since the idea of rocky road cookies popped into my head a month ago, I have been tweaking recipe after recipe so I could come up with a cookie extraordinary enough to be posted on my website (because let me tell you, I don’t post ANYTHING on here that I don’t think is COMPLETELY scrapeworthy and delicious).  These are INCREDIBLE.  These cookies are complete ooey gooey chocolate goodness (I mean, flourless chocolate goods usually are), and the marshmallows on top are all crispy and golden brown on the edges and gooey in the middle.  Just like if you roasted them on a fire!  You might be wondering why we don’t just mix the marshmallows into the batter, and the reason is they sort of melt and disappear that way.  The golden brown crispy shelled marshmallows on top make this cookie truly incredible and rocky road-esque.  These cookies are insanely easy to make and are hands down the best cookie I have ever had.  Please for your own enjoyment print this recipe and MAKE these COOKIES!  Here’s the recipe:

3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 extra large egg whites
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2.5 oz almonds, toasted (important!)
1 cup mini marshmallows

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line two sheet pans with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, sift together the powdered sugar and cocoa powder.  Whisk in the salt.  Add the egg whites and vanilla and whisk until combined.  Stir in the chocolate chips and almonds.
Use a disher to portion out small mounds on to the parchment paper, then top each cookie with 4-5 marshmallows.  Pop into the freezer for 5 minutes to chill slightly (this prevents them from spreading too much in the oven).
Bake for 12-13 minutes until the marshmallows are golden brown.  Let the cookies sit on the paper for a few minutes to set, before moving them to a wire rack to cool.  Are these ooey gooey or what?  Enjoy!!!

Makes 24 4-inch cookies.

  1. Omg omg these look so insanely good! I love rocky road, or anything chocolate. I need to make these asap!

  2. These look INCREDIBLE… just like you said. I made rocky road a while ago, and it was probably the most delicious thing I’ve ever made – it is so incredibly simple. This is such a great idea. Yum.

    Be still my hungry heart! These look incredible and definitely scrapeworthy. It’s been way too long since I sunk my teeth into an ooey, gooey, richly chocolately cookie. Might be a good hurricane recipe to try out . . . as long as I don’t lose power!

  4. Love all the lumps of goodies in these cookies! Rocky road is such a classic flavor and these cookies look amazing-thanks for sharing.

    Will definitely be making these!!! Question- did you buy the almonds toasted already or did you do that yourself?
    Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      Sometimes the almonds are already roasted, but often times they are not. Either roast them in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until they are golden brown (shake the pan every 5 minutes or so) or you can toast them in a dry skillet over medium heat until golden brown. I recommend the oven method over the pan method though! Enjoy the cookies!
