I love being a vegan. But there are a few little things I miss, one of which being marshmallows.
I've tried a few vegan marshmallows from the UK and I wasn't very impressed, but people have been raving about Dandies, so I ordered some from my favorite small vegan business Sarah's Place and they arrived this morning. They were a little sticky from all the travelling, but boy are they delicious! They toast so well too! I've got lots of ideas of recipes using these little nuggets of wonder, but these Rocky Road Cookies are just pure indulgence.
A dark chocolatey cookie packed full of dark chocolate chips, roasted and salted peanuts and of course, my new friends, Dandies Marshmallows! Treat yourself!
Makes 20 Cookies
Recipe Adapted from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar
1/2C almond milk
2Tbsp ground flax
1 1/4C sugar
1 1/2C + 2Tbsp flour
1/2C cocoa powder
1/2tsp baking soda
1/2C dark chocolate chips
1/2C roasted salted peanuts
1/2C chopped Dandies Marshmallows (or use mini ones)
Preheat oven to 175/350.
In a mixing bowl combine the milk, flax, oil and sugar. Mix until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and mix until everything is well incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips, nuts and marshmallow chunks.
Using an ice cream scoop, drop mounds of the dough onto lined baking sheets, leaving around 2 inches between cookies as they do spread. Bake for 10mins. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking tray for a further 5mins and then transfer onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
