If you like Rocky Road Ice Cream, then you are going to love this Rocky Road Cookie recipe!
Who can say no to soft and chewy brownie like chocolate cookies that are loaded with white chocolate chips, peanuts, caramel, and marshmallows? I know I can’t. As far as cookies go, this recipe is fairly simple and fast. It is a great recipe to use to teach kids how make cookies. The kids can definitely help with measuring the ingredients, mixing the cookie dough, and rolling the balls of cookie dough.
My two youngest boys love to help me make cookies. They beam from ear to ear when they get to tell the rest of the family that they helped make the cookies. And of course when my kids are happy,5 I am definitely happy!
