Emily’s blog friend almostgotit has been saying for months that we needed a Rocky Road recipe. Here’s hers. It’s technically fudge, not a cookie. But it’s a great way to launch Cookie Week on the ROL! SAM

1 (12-ounce) bag chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened, condensed milk
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups salted, dry-roasted peanuts
1 (10.5-ounce) bag mini marshmallows

Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with tinfoil, letting ends extend 2 inches above the ends of pan. In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter, stirring to blend. Add the peanuts and marshmallows. Spread in the pan and refrigerate until firm. Lift the foil by the ends onto a cutting board and cut the fudge into 1-inch squares. Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container.
Makes about 9 dozen squares.
