Nutella No Bake Cookies

When I first moved out on my own, I struggled with cooking.  I had two main things that I could make that didn’t involve a box of cereal or lunch meat. I’ve had my share of kitchen disasters and the one that stands out most was my first attempt at no bake cookies.

No Bake Nutella Cookies

My mom used to make no bake cookies all the time. I remember it being very simple, no flour, no eggs, just cooking some ingredients on the stove and stirring in a few cups of oatmeal. Well, in my haste to make some no bake cookies for my office, I failed to recognize one crucial element. Letting the sugar, butter, cocoa concoction boil for at least one minute.

Nutella cookies to go

While my “cookies” tasted good, they resembled chocolate soup with chunks. Not the most appetizing thing. My co-workers didn’t care, they all grabbed spoons and dug in.

Simple Nutella No Bake Cookies

Now I may sound a little cocky but I think I’m the expert at making no bake cookies and have started experimenting a little. I’ve tried adding marshmallows (yum), popcorn (trust me, this works) and now Nutella.  Nutella no bake cookies have become a huge hit in my family and now when I take them to the office, they get eaten without spoons.

    I am probably one of few who have never tried Nutella, but I may have to give it a try. These look yummy and I love no bake!

  • Danielle

    So… I may have just licked the screen! Is there another container full of these cookies being shipped off to me today? Yum!

  • Kate

    These look DELICIOUS! Do you have the nutrition content?

  • Michelle

    I love these no bake cookies, and they were very easy to make! I would lessen the amount of cocoa though. It over road the Nutella. Although I did half Nutella and half peanut butter. So that may be why. But they still taste delish’

    How do you mix the nutella and oatmeal together?

    • Samantha (author)

      It’s not the easiest thing and it doesn’t have to be perfectly mixed together. I tend to take the backside of the spoon and smash it together. Hope that helps!

  • Christine

    This may be a dumb question but do you stir while boiling?

    • Samantha (author)

      Yes, I do to keep it evenly mixed.
