Jealousy in a Cookie

Rocky Road ice cream hands down is one of my favorites.
Rocky road cookies, now those make ice cream jealous.
The only way to make them friends again would be to add a little ice cream INSIDE the cookies and make an ice cream sammie.
I left them enemies.

When I needed a chocolate fix yesterday I picked myself up, walked into the kitchen, opened my cupboards and started pulling out random ingredients.
Oh, a little baggie of chippies (stuff a handful in my mouth), ohhhh lookie here, a few hazelnuts kickin around.  OH chocolate marshmallows, ok, Ive got it.
Hence the cookie.

I have an old recipe I like to use but I doctored it, added a few things to it and behold.....

Oh ya, chocolate craving fulfilled!

Add in the nuts/chocolate/marshmallows and again, fold in.

Bake about 12-14 want them to be soft to touch, almost as if they werent quite done.
