  1. 1 box (15 ounces) chocolate cookie mix
  2. ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  3. 2 tablespoons rum
  4. 1 tablespoon water
  5. 1 large egg, beaten
Rocky Road Layer
  1. 1 package cream cheese, softened
  2. ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  3. ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  4. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  5. 1 tablespoon rum
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  7. 1 large egg
  8. 1-½ cups walnuts, toasted and chopped (divided)
  9. 6 ounces milk chocolate chips
  10. 1-½ cups white mini marshmallows
Chocolate Topping
  1. 2/3cup all-purpose cream
  2. 1/3 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into pieces
  3. 12 ounces dark baking chocolate, chopped
  4. 1 teaspoon rum extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 13x9x2-inch rectangular pan and line with baking paper. Set aside.
  1. Combine together chocolate cookie mix, melted butter, rum, water and beaten egg. Press onto the bottom of prepared pan. Set aside.
Rocky Road Layer
  1. Beat cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Beat in sugar, butter, flour, rum, vanilla and egg. Stir in 2/3 of the walnuts, reserve the rest for topping.
  2. Pour over cookie base and spread evenly. Sprinkle chocolate chips over cream cheese layer. Bake for 28 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle top with marshmallows.
  3. Reduce heat to 325°F and continue baking for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set on a wire rack.
Chocolate Topping
  1. Pour cream in a saucepan and set over medium heat. When cream reaches boiling point, add butter pieces and allow to melt without stirring. Remove from heat and pour over chopped chocolates. Set aside for 5 minutes until melted. Stir in rum extract. Allow topping to cool for 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Pour over rocky road cake and sprinkle with reserved walnuts. Chill cookie cake for 4 to 8 hours, or until firm. Cut into bars or squares before serving.
  1. To turn recipe into a super kid-friendly version, replace rum and rum extract with orange or lemon juice.
  2. Espresso or tea powder can also be added to the rocky road layer ingredients to create variety. Nuts can be omitted and replaced with dried or candied fruit, if desired.
