Rocky Road Cookies

See I promised non-paleo recipes - these are about as far from paleo as you can get!

The original recipe called these Hot Cocoa Cookies but they are so rich and gooey they reminded me more of rocky road fudge.

Adapted from Pip & Ebby, makes two dozen cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened
12 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, cut into 24 pieces
12 marshmallows, halved
Preheat the oven to 325 F.


Melt 12 ounces of chocolate and the butter in a sauce pan over low heat, stirring frequently. Allow to cool slightly.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the eggs, brown sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Add in the cooled chocolate mixture and blend to combine. Add in the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until combined. Add the walnuts and stir to combine.

Taking approximately 1 tablespoon of dough, roll the dough into 1 inch balls. Arrange on a Silpat lined baking sheet and flatten slightly.

Bake for 12 minutes or until the tops start to crack.

Remove from the oven and top each cookie first with a square of chocolate and then a marshmallow halve. Return to the oven until the marshmallows start to brown, about 5 minutes.
