As most of you already know, I absolutely adore no-bake cookies, especially when eating straight out of the pot with a giant spoon.
Is that still considered a cookie?…..Or would that be more like no-bake fudge cookie soup? Okay, that doesn’t sound right or normal, so let’s just go with it’s still a cookie.
My Husband is a huge fan of Nutella…and by huge fan, i’m talkin’ we go through multiple large tubs each year. I probably shouldn’t admit that, but anyone can agree it really is undeniably delicious.
When I started thinking about Nutella, and it’s creamy consistency that’s so similar to peanut butter, it dawned on me to try making no-bakes with Nutella in place of the penaut butter. So, I decided to give it a whirl, and holy moly were they a hit.
Don’t fret if you don’t make no-bake cookies on the regular, or if you absolutely hate baking in general, I promise you these are quick and easy.
I tend to make no-bakes when i’m in a hurry to get somewhere with a sweet treat in hand, or if I simply don’t want to wait for something to bake in the oven. Only 8-10 minutes and they will be ready to be devoured. Now, go ahead–grab a spoon and dig in.
