I know that we made something similar before, back when Maisie and I made Math Book No Bake Cookies but when Aimee over on Sugary Sweets posted her recipe for Nutella No Bake Cookies, well we just had to make them. Nutella is just the bomb and it made what were already delicious sweet little treats just that much better.

Maisie loves scooping out the cookies.
She’s also a good taste tester, even before her work is completed.
I did change Aimee’s recipe a bit in that I used Old Fashioned oats instead of quick oats, because that’s what I had in the house. The difference in using Old Fashioned or rolled oats in place of quick oats is that the cookies are a bit chewier, which we all enjoyed. I also made the cookies in the microwave instead of on the stove top because it works easier for Maisie.
Nutella No Bake Cookies (adapted from here)
2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk (I used skim)
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup Nutella
3 cup Old Fashioned oats
In a microwave safe bowl combine the sugar, cocoa, milk and butter. Heat in one minute intervals stirring after each minute until the butter and is melted and all the ingredients are combined. Once the ingredients are all melted and combined, microwave on high for two minutes. Remove from the microwave and add the vanilla, salt, peanut butter & Nutella. Stir to combine until smooth. Stir in the oats until combined. Drop by teaspoon or cookie scoop onto a Silpat or wax paper. Refrigerate until they are set.
I will have to try this recipe with Nutella. You know, I don't think I've ever bought a jar of that stuff.ReplyDelete

Ohhh great looking cookies! Being Italian, I have grown up eating Nutella and I LOVE it. I have bookmarked this... I am sure my girls (and I) will enjoy these cookies!ReplyDelete
You have definitely made an already fantastic cookie into something extraordinary by adding the Nutella. I can tell by Maisie's photos that she agrees. You know, I had never had Nutella until this year and probably should have kept it that way. Ohmygoodness! I have a slight addiction now. Thanks for sharing your recipe!ReplyDelete
