    I'd have to say that these are some of the best cookies I've ever had.

    Rocky Road happens to be my favorite kind of ice cream…and I have no doubt it'd make for a fantastic cookie!

    Love Rocky Road, nuts, mallows and all…There are times when you cannot have the ice cream version due to certain reasons. You cannot just have a tub in your handbag, right? I bet these cookies solved the dilemma. You'll have your Roacky Road flavor, anytime, anywhere. I kinda' like that! Thanks for sharing! Must try!

    Love rocky road…i think these might be a good addition to the christmas cookie plate. Question: Did you find that the pecan/walnut mix was tastier then a pure walnut addition?

      I liked the combination of the two! You could use whatever you prefer (almonds would also be nice).

    I've never tried Rocky Road anything but this looks so fudgy rich chocolaty and tasty that I REALLLLY wanna make these! Marshamllows and chocolate and nuts? I'm sure that's a great combination! Got any left? If so, can you mail me some? πŸ˜‰

    Hi Tessa! I made these last week. They were supposed to go to work with my boyfriend but they were so good we ate all of them, so I had to make another batch. They are so decadent! A real treat for any chocolate lover.

    I don't know if you found this to be the case, but the marshmallows in mine oozed out the sides a little but and created a cooked sugary crust around the edges of some of them. Didn't hurt the taste at all, but made them a little sticky to handle.

    I'll be posting about them this week and I'll make sure to link back to you. Thanks for sharing!

      Mine did that, too. On the first dozen, I used the measuring cup with Pam to flatten them out a little and they oozed out, too. But, the rest of the time, I just used my fingers and tried flattening them out. It worked much better! They held their shape well and didn't ooze too bad.

      I converted mine to Gluten Free (my brother and I both have Celiac Disease) and just used the Better Batter Gluten Free flour and they turned out wonderful!! I'm going to try to freeze mine until we go on vacation, so that's my next concern. πŸ™‚ Otherwise, these are AWESOME!!!

      Thanks for this awesome recipe!
