rocky road cookies.

the last one.
a sad day.

rocky road cookies.
adapted from maida heatter's Cookies

2 oz unsweetened chocolate
6 oz semisweet chocolate
3 oz unsalted butter
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
2 tsp powdered espresso
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup mini marshmallows

Melt chocolate and butter in a sauce pan. Cool slightly.
In a mixer, whip eggs, sugar, coffee powder, and vanilla at high speed for a two minutes.
Beat in melted chocolate/butter into above mixture.
Add dry ingredients until just incorporated.
Mix in remaining chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut and marshmallows.

Bake on parchment or Silpat at 350 for 12-15 minutes or so. The surface of the cookies will be dry but the insides will be soft. There is no way to test the doneness. Let cookies cool on sheet before removing to a rack to cool completely. Then try one :)
