A chocolaty cake-like cookie with all the goodness of “rocky road”: marshmallows, chocolate chips, and pecans!
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.
This time of year, we are all looking for that perfect cookie recipe that will get Santa to leave a gift for even the naughtiest of people. These cookies might just be them. The simple, no fail base can be customized to whatever candies or chip combination you desire. I have made these for years and have never been disappointed.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
