Rocky Road Cookies

ok, so this is just me messing around with some chocolate cookies by adding marshmallows, almonds, chocolate chips and coffee into the recipe. it's super delicious and chewy =) just the way i like my cookies =)

The recipe is really simple and requires simple ingredients =) I call it...

chocolate coffee meets rocky road cookies

3/4 cup softened unsalted butter
2 tbsp instant coffee granules
2 cups + 2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup regular sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
chocolate chips, chopped almonds, and marshmallows

Heat butter and coffee granules in a small saucepan until the coffee dissolves in the melted butter. Set aside to cool. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Mix butter mixture, sugars, and eggs in a large bowl.
Add dry ingredients, and mix just until blended using an electric mixer. Then add in the chocolate chips, marshmallows, and almonds using a rubber spatula or spoon. You should get something that looks like this...

This is normally the time you can scoop spoons of cookie batter on cookie sheets, lined with wax or parchment paper, but I opt to use a muffin pan to get same-sized cookies. 

Using a cupcake/muffin pan, coated with cooking spay, I scooped a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough into the muffin pans using a small cookie scooper. =) =)

Bake in the oven at 325 degrees F for about 12-14 minutes. =) And they should look something like this =) Yumm!!!!
