Back with another Crumbl copycat recipe today! This time we are tackling the delicious Crumbl Rocky Road Cookies that are bursting with marshmallow and covered in chocolate and almonds. No, they aren’t one of the flavors this week but I’m sure they will be back soon and some of us cannot wait. We’d just rather make our own delicious version at home.

MINI OR GIANT CRUMBL COOKIES?

Yes, Crumbl is known for their GIANT cookies. They are so big, in fact, they list them as 3.5-6.5 servings in their stores. What kind of monster eats 1/6 of a cookie?? I like my own perfectly round, un-touched cookie so mini cookies are right up my alley.

That being said, we are making this Rocky Road Cookies BIG. Yes, we normally make all our DIY Crumbl recipes mini but these just work better as big cookies. You can make them mini, but just be warned that the marshmallow will get lost because it’s very hard to get a good marshmallow to cookie ratio with mini cookies.

Trust us with this one, make them big. Share them if you must or just indulge and eat the entire cookie. You do you.

TO CHILL OR NOT TO CHILL?

That is the question! I’m not talking about the cookie dough because no chilling is necessary for the dough but how do you serve them? Chilled or warm?

While these are AMAZING warm right out of the oven, I suggest storing them in the fridge once they cool. I have also found that all the Crumbl recipes stay fresh longer if you keep them in the refrigerator. No matter what air-tight container you keep the cookies in, they don’t stay fresh as long out on the counter as they do if you put them in the fridge.

So, the moral of the story is STORE THESE COOKIES IN THE FRIDGE. Sure, you can eat them cold or pop one in the microwave for 15 seconds when you are ready for a warm cookie but you’ll thank me when you still have fresh cookies 3-4 days later.

ROCKY ROAD COOKIE INGREDIENTS

6. Scoop out 20 equal cookie dough balls (they should be 1/4 cup of dough). Flatten each dough ball and place a marshmallow half in the center of the dough. Carefully, wrap the cookie dough around the marshmallow and roll it in your hands to seal it.

7. Press chocolate chips and chopped almonds all over the top of the cookie dough ball. You want to basically cover the top and sides with as many chocolate chips and almond pieces as you can.
