Rocky Road Cookies and Cream Bites Recipe

Rich chocolate chunks, melted marshmallows, oreo cookie chunks wrapped in a buttery flavored chocolate cookie.

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped oreo cookies
1/2 cup milk chocolate chunks
1 cup mini marshmallows
optional 1/2 cup chopped peanuts, walnuts or pecans

Microwave semisweet chocolate morsels in a small microwave-safe glass bowl at HIGH for 1 minute, stirring every 30 seconds. Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; add eggs, 1 at a time, and beat well. Finally blend in the vanilla and melted chocolate.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add this slowly to chocolate mixture, continuously stirring until well blended. Stir in the chopped oreo's and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chunks.

Now take a baking sheet lined with butter paper. Spoon two tbsp of the dough onto the paper sheets. Press 3 marshmallows into the center of each cookie dough.Preheat oven to 350° and bake for  8 to10  minutes or until set. Remove and allow to cool on the wire rack.

Store in an air-tight container between pieces of wax paper. These cookies do not last long and will eaten quickly! These cookies can't be frozen, the marshmallows will get sticky. By the way, these taste good without anything in them also, the basic dough is delicious!
