What is it about classic no-bake cookies that make us all 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, don't they?  Which certainly makes their appearance something we can forgive.

 And can I just say? ... When you add Nutella ...

... an already-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.  Because 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.  {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 they'd ever had.  Score!

And I dare say, they are pretty darn tootin' good.  {I did have to do a quality control check after all, you know.}  I love how with the addition of Nutella, you get a little touch of hazelnut flavor in with the chocolate.  It's a total 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 treat in no time flat!  Just be sure to focus on their great taste ... and not their appearance.

  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.
