Rocky Road Cookies

One goal of mine this year is to add original dessert recipes to my site. I developed  a great Plum Cake last summer and failed to post about it and now it just doesn’t make sense to post it until you all can get plums in season. I did however buy a jarred ingredient today that I’ll have plenty of leftovers and thought of using them in place of the plums. So perhaps I can post it soon! A few weeks ago I bought some Dandies Marshmallows in the hopes of creating a Rocky Road Cookie and/or a Rocky Road Muffin. So far I’ve come up with only the cookie recipe but it needs some help. They came out really good but I didn’t want to eat all of them which to me means that the recipe needs some tweaking.  They were like a cross between a cookie and a brownie, which isn’t a bad thing, but not what I was going for. Another problem is that Dandies are pretty big marshmallows! I had to cut each one in 1/2 and use my biggest ice cream scoop to scoop the cookies onto the baking sheet and still 1 or 2 cookies didn’t get a single marshmallow in them! So that needs to change also mainly because cutting marshmallows is really annoying.

I love creating baked goods/desserts. I just hate fine tuning the recipes but I’m trying.  :)
