I was one poor college student.
I even bounced a check for an 89 cent bagel. Pathetic, I know. My family still loves to tease me about the most expensive bagel in the world. I would go to the bookstore where they sold the best homemade chocolate fudge. I would save up my pennies in order to buy a small piece of rocky road fudge and would savor every single bite! To this day when I visit my college town, I always order the fudge.
So let’s combine two of the best desserts — cookies and fudge into one.
These Rocky Road Fudge Cookies are made with a rich chocolate cookie dough studded with semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted marshmallow, and walnuts. These heavenly cookies literally melt in your mouth!
The key is to wrap the double chocolate cookie dough around a large marshmallow, completely covering it. When baked, the marshmallow gets soft and melty in the middle. The walnuts provide a perfect balance to compliment the sweetness of the rocky road fudge cookie. If you aren’t a nut lover, leave them out. You will be left with a ooey, gooey chocolate marshmallow cookie that will rock your world.
