Nutella No-Bake Cookies




What is it about classic no-bake cookies that make me love them so much?  They certainly don't look good ... I mean, they're like little chocolate plops {okay ~ maybe we shouldn't go there}.  But boy, they sure do taste good.  And can I just say? ... When you add Nutella ...

... a good thing gets even better!

I made this batch of Nutella No-Bake Cookies for a friend of mine for her birthday.  She loooooooves no-bake cookies.  She also, until these cookies, had never had Nutella.  What??  When she told me she'd never tried Nutella I just couldn't believe it.  'Cause truly, Nutella is something that's straight up her alley.  She'd actually never even heard of the stuff.


So I seized the opportunity to make a Nutella introduction for her with her birthday cookies.  I'm sweet like that.  {Let me just go on the record that it had absolutely nothing to do with my wanting to try Nutella No-Bake Cookies myself.  Nope.  Absolutely nothing.}

Oh, how my friend loved these!  When she shared them with her family, her family said they were the best no-bake cookies ever.  Score!

And I dare say, they are pretty darn tootin' good.  {I did have to do a quality control check, ya know.}  I love how you get the touch of hazelnut flavor in with the chocolate.  Yum.

So if you love Nutella, I highly recommend whipping up a batch of these easy no-bake cookies.  If you can boil water, you can whip up this tasty Nutella treat in no time flat!

  12. Now these are some no bake cookies I think I could get behind! My husband and son love them the regular no bakes, but I rarely make the because I am not a huge fan.

    Thanks so much for linking up at Marvelous Mondays this week! :)

  15. Do not try to double the recipe. Either it doesn't work out or I did something horribly wrong. They taste great, just feel kinda slimy.
