National Rocky Road Day

We are halfway there to beginning the 25 Days of Christmas Cookies which is where this whole blog started! In honor of this glorious day and the fact that today is National Rocky Road Day, indulge yourself with these yummy cookies!

Rocky Road Cookies

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup chopped nuts
About 48 miniature marshmallows

Melt 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and the butter in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth; remove from heat. Cool slightly.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix melted chocolate mixture, flour, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, salt and eggs in large bowl with spoon. Stir in nuts and remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Press 1 marshmallow into center of each cookie. Bake 8 to 12 minutes Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Yield: About 4 dozen cookies (or 2 dozen if you make them big enough to eat in more than 1 bite)

*Try using colored or the fun seasonal-shaped miniature marshmallows in place of the little white ones.

NOTE: I did not use nuts in my batch this time so I guess they are technically S'more Cookies.
