These rocky road cookies are deliciously decadent.
Possibly my favorite cookie ever.
I know you’re probably thinking what is so decadent about rocky road?
Well, let’s start with chocolate, and add almonds, and then mallow bits.
But it’s not just chocolate. It’s cocoa and chocolate chips – decadent when paired together.
Do you see that little chocolate chip, almond sliver, mallow bit sandwich?
Everything mini – just what I love.
