Vegan Rocky Road Cookies

Vegan Rocky Road Cookies
February has come and gone and so has the Valentine's chocolate.
While February might be the month of love and chocolate. That applies to all months in my opinion. Anytime, all time, I want chocolate.
Love is important, too.
Vegan Rocky Road Cookies
These cookies are perfectly chocolate-y! They're also crispy, chewy, and basically the perfect cookie. This is kind of embarrassing to admit, but we've never really successfully baked a cookie that's crispy and chewy and spreads when baking. Usually our cookies just sit there on the baking sheet and don't do anything. How we plop the dough on the baking sheet is exactly how they come out. It's frustrating. It boggles the mind, haha. But, alas! We've finally done it!
Unfortunately, white chocolate chips are near impossible to find around town without paying through the teeth, so we added marshmallows instead and no complaints from me! These seem more rocky road-like with marshmallows to me.
