Description

A chocolaty cake-like cookie with all the goodness of “rocky road”: marshmallows, chocolate chips, and pecans!

Ingredients

  • 3-½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 6 Tablespoons Cocoa
  • 1 cup Butter, Softened
  • ½ cups Shortening (I Used Butter-flavored)
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Miniature Marshmallows
  • 1 cup Chopped Pecans, Or Other Chopped Nut Of Preference

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt, soda, and cocoa powder. Set aside.

In another large bowl, beat together the butter, shortening, and brown sugar until creamy.

Add the eggs and mix well, then mix in the milk and vanilla.

Add the dry ingredients and stir together with a large mixing spoon, just until combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips, marshmallows, and nuts.

On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, place cookie dough by rounded tablespoonsful, 12 cookies per baking pan evenly spaced. If desired, the cookie dough may be topped with additional chopped nuts and chocolate chips. (Do it! It makes a great looking cookie.)

Bake for 11-13 minutes. (My cookies were ready in 12 minutes.) Remove from oven and allow to cool on pan for 1 minute. Remove cookies from pan and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.

Store covered in an airtight container.

Note: I used a standard cookie scoop and heaped the dough rather than smooth it level with the scoop.
