Nutella has become one of my most favorite treats, especially to bake with! As I recently was making several no bake cookies, I decided to add a little Nutella too it. I was expecting lots of chocolate and that’s exactly what I got. I did find that with the Nutella, I had to add an extra cup of oats to this recipe. (Update Note: I had originally made this recipe with 4 cups of oats; however after making again, I think 3 cups is perfect! I noticed that the first time I made it with an off brand of oats and they were significantly smaller than the brand names which played into the difference.)
These were chewy and delicious! One of the struggles I have with no bake cookies is getting them to set correctly. The main source of getting the perfect no bake cookie is boiling it properly, you do not want to under boil or over boil. Then, comes the question of how long do you boil? I’ve had some people say 1 minute and some say 2 1/2 minutes! My husband likes them gooey and so I typically just eye it and try to stay in the middle of 1 to 2 1/2 minutes!
I adapted this recipe from All Recipes; however, it’s a basic no bake cookie recipe.
Nutella No Bake Cookies
- 1 3/4 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 1/2 Cup Butter
- 4 Tbsp Cocoa
- 1/2 Cup Nutella
- 3 Cups Oats or Gluten Free Certified Oats
- 1 Tsp Vanilla
- Begin by combining the sugar, milk, butter, and cocoa in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Again let this boil at least 1-2 1/2 minutes, I typically go with 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Drop the cookies in tablespoon fulls on wax or parchment paper then let them cool until hardened. At this point, I almost always put mine in the fridge to harden.
- These made 2 dozen for me.
