Nutella Cookies

Growing up my Dad always made similar no bake cookies using peanut butter. Over the years it became his signature dessert, so when I came across this version of his recipe it made me think of him. He is also a big Nutella fan so making these for him for Father’s Day this year was a no brainer!

Ingredients:

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup cocoa

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup Nutella

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups quick rolled oats

Instructions:

In medium saucepan, combine sugar, butter, cocoa and milk. Cook over medium heat to a boil and boil for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 Nutella and vanilla.  Stir until Nutella is melted.  Stir in the oats and quickly drop by heaping spoonfuls on the wax paper, then allow to harden.

 ** I spread an extra 1/4 cup of Nutella on top of the cookies to kick the flavor up a notch and then I sprinkled them with chopped walnuts. **
