Gooey rocky road cookies with all the fixins
Crispy edges, melty chocolate and gooey marshmallows centers;
What more do you need out of a cookie?
I have had severe baking fever the past couple weeks. What I have lacked in creativity, savory-wise, I have definitely made up for it dessert-wise. Like these gooey rocky road cookies
Stress always makes me want to bake because it gets me out of my head. So when I had all of these new deadlines coming out, I just procrasti'bake' instead. I know some of you can relate!
However, I am not complaining. This stress induced baking has created these magical cookies, now on a weekly rotation in my house. Other than our favorite classic chocolate chip cookies, which happen to be gluten free and vegan, these gooey rocky road cookies have quickly become a house favorite!
Crisp edges and gooey centers with pockets of marshmallows and dark melted chocolate throughout every bite. The reason I like to use chopped chocolate is because the sizes vary and they melt and spread through all the layers of the cookies.
If you can get your hands on some salted almond butter, you won't regret it. The salt absolutely enhances the sweetness you get from the maple syrup, marshmallows and chocolate. Salty-sweet is what I live for in desserts--you just need that balance!
These rocky road cookies are completely free of gluten, dairy and grains, well suited for everyones needs! If you want to get technical, the marshmallows aren't totally Paleo, but shortcuts people, shortcuts!
One bowl, soul satisfyingly decadent cookies that you won't be able to stop eating!
