Flourless rocky road cookies with chocolate chips, marshmallows, and walnuts are a guilty pleasure you’ll love to indulge in more than you ever should.



  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened light cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 extra large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Add the egg whites and vanilla and stir until a loose batter forms. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  3. Use a portioning scoop or two spoons to scoop out small mounds and place them on the parchment paper, with about 2 inches in between each cookie. Top each with 5-6 marshmallows, gently pressing them down.
  4. Place in the freezer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  5. Bake for 12-13 minutes, until the cookies have spread slightly and the marshmallows are golden brown. Let the cookies cool completely on the sheet pan before removing and serving.
