Nutella No Bake Cookies

Today I made a quick & easy cookie with one of my favorite ingredients - 
Nutella! Looooove Nutella!!
Since Spring seems to have arrived in Savannah early this year, I had 
my pick of blooms for decorating my plate! 
Love the pretty pink Azaleas and Camelias!
No bake cookies are baked in many kitchens at Christmas. 
What makes this recipe different is that it includes Nutella instead of 
melted chocolate chips! You throw all your ingredients together, then use 
your cookie scoop to measure them out.
The recipe included an optional ingredient of hazelnut liqueur 
such as Frangelico. I didn't have that, but I imagine 
it would give them a gourmet flavor!
You do have to watch out because these yummies do disappear fast!!

No-Bake Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies
The Kitchn

3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup peanut or hazelnut butter
3/4 cup Nutella hazelnut spread
2 tablespoons hazelnut liqueur, like Frangelico (optional)
2 cups rolled oats

In a medium to large saucepan, melt the butter over medium to medium-low heat. Add the sugar, milk, and cocoa powder and mix until combined. Stir in the peanut butter, Nutella, and Frangelico until melted, followed by the oats. Continue mixing until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Reduce heat to lowest setting.
Working quickly, use a spring-form ice cream scoop to shape balls of dough and place them on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Refrigerate for thirty minutes until firm. Store in an airtight container. Makes approximately 2 dozen.

Thanks for visiting!!


  1. I must live under a rock, because I hadn't tried nutella until about a month ago. It became crystal clear to me that I cannot keep that amazingness in my house without gorging on it by the spoonful. I can only imagine how incredibly good these are. And aren't you the lucky one with flowers blooming!

  2. Oh my goodness I am now starving...these look amazing! Thank you for the tutorial!
