Mmmmm the more cookie mix-ins the better! These cookies are chocolaty  crunchy, chewy and delicious! The classic flavor of rocky road ice cream in every bite! A decadent mix of chocolate, marshmallows and crunchy nuts.

Yield: 4 3/4 dozen cookies     Prep Time: 15 minutes    Cook Time: 10-13 minutes

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cocoa
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup nuts, I used a mix of walnuts and pecans
1 cup Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits

Tools:

1 large bowl
1 medium bowl
whisk or sifter
measuring cups and spoons
baking sheet
parchment paper or silicone baking mat
mixer or wooden spoon
mini ice cream scoop


I used a stand mixer for this recipe, but you can mix it up with a hand mixer or a wooden spoon as well. For the best results use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. You don't need to replace the parchment paper for each batch, just continue to use parchment until all the dough has been baked.  I also use a mini ice cream scooper to make perfectly portioned cookies.
 
I made these this a.m. They were crunchier than I predicted, but good. Very, very, very chocolatey. These are without a doubt milk cookies. I got
over 6 dozen. The down side is the dough it super thick, my hand mixer really had a hard time with it. Overall, I'd give them 4 out of 5.
