Rocky Road Cookie Recipe. These cookies are easy to make and so delicious, it’s hard to only to only eat one or two. They are a good lunchbox treat as well that you can make and freeze for when the kids go back to school.
My daughter makes these cookies for us and we all love them so. I LOVE ROCKY ROAD, and these have all those yummy flavours in a cookie! They are perfect treat in the afternoon when I sit down with a cuppa, I do love the crunch of the nuts and gooeyness of the marshmallow. The cookies freeze really well for eating later, but I must admit we tend to polish off the batch pretty quickly and they very rarely make it to the freezer in our home. I am planning on doing a big baking day soon to stock my freezer with snacks, these cookies would make a lovely once in a while, lunchbox treat if your child attends a school that allows nuts.
After you’ve made the cookie batter, a tablespoon of the mixture gives the perfect cookie size.
