Little Miss H has been obsessed with mini-marshmallows ever since she had her first hot chocolate before Christmas. And I am obsessed with rocky roads. So a few months ago, I decided to try to make some rocky road cookies.

It took a few attempts. But I think I managed to perfect the recipe this weekend and I wanted to share it with you.

If you are looking to make a cookie with a difference, to make a cookie that screams “eat me” or to make a cookie that is fantabulously delicious, then these are the cookies for you.

Rocky road cookies

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 10 to 15 minutes

Makes: 30 cookies (I know that is a lot. But they do keep well in an air tight container or you could always halve the quantities in the recipe).

Ingredients

200g of butter

200g of soft brown sugar

100g of golden caster sugar

1 large egg

275g of self-raising flour, sifted

75g of cocoa powder, sifted

100g of good quality chocolate, chopped

75g of glacé cherries, chopped

75g of walnuts, chopped

150ml of whole milk

Some mini-marshmallows (you will need four or five per cookie)

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/ 170°C for a fan oven or 375°F/gas mark 5.

2. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper.

3. Cream the butter, sugar and egg together in a bowl.

4. Work the flour and cocoa into the butter and sugar mixture.

5. Fold the chopped chocolate, walnuts and glacé cherries into the mixture. If it is a little dry then gradually add some milk (but no more than 150ml).

6. Using a spoon place a dollop of cookie dough onto the baking tray.

7. Firmly place four to five mini-marshmallows into the top of the dough for each cookie.

8. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies.The marshmallows will have melted slightly and look a little toasted.

9. Leave to firm for five minutes and then move to a wire rack to cool.

10. Eat whilst still warm and enjoy!
