Nutella No Bake Cookies

I have a confession.. last week, when I was sick, I made cookies! Lol, I know, why can’t I just lay down and rest like everyone else? It was Thursday, the first night of VBS and I was all alone and finally starting to feel a little better. I even felt like eating solid food instead of soup..  as long as it was chocolate. Plus these are the easiest cookies in the world! I was only up for 5 minutes and then I was enjoying them!

Of course the original recipe calls for Peanut Butter and I didn’t have Peanut Butter.. so I decided to change them to Nutella No-Bake Cookies. I made some adjustments to the original recipe to compensate for the differences in Peanut Butter vs  Nutella and I think they turned out perfectly! I even made them again last night so that I could take pictures to share this delicious recipe with you. I felt it was my responsibility 🙂 Plus, I ate the last one yesterday (Further proof of how sick I have been- how did a batch of cookies make it a week in this house!?) I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!

Nutella No-Bake Cookies

Ingredients

1 stick unsalted butter
1 ½ cups sugar
1 ½ tablespoons cocoa powder
½ cup milk
3 cups Quick Cook Oats
½ cup Nutella
¼ cups chopped peanuts (optional)

Directions

1. Melt 1 stick of butter on medium heat.

2. Add sugar, milk, and cocoa powder to melted butter and turn to high.

3. Bring to a roiling boil. Cook for 3 minutes* while stirring at a rolling boil.

4. Remove from heat and quickly stir in nutella, oats and peanuts (optional).

5. Scoop out onto wax paper and let sit. Cookies should harden in less than 5 minutes.

Recipe makes approximately 32 cookies.

See, quick and easy! You’ll be enjoying these little gems in no time!  🙂

*Years ago when I made the original recipe I always over or undercooked them. The secret is in how long they boil – my mom tells me that 3 minutes is perfect timing and after multiple, successful batches since then, I would agree.  If you bring to a boil for too long they will be dry and crumbly, if they don’t boil enough they will not harden well. Either way I can assure you they will still taste fantastic and you’ll know to watch them more closely the next time.

  • I haven’t jumped on the nutella band wagon because I’m not sure I care that much about it but now you’ve got my mind working! I’m thinking cookie butter (like biscoff spread) from trader joes would make a wonderful variation. Or Biscoff spread no bake cookies… these are things I can get behind. Thanks for the ideas!
