Nutella No Bake Cookies

by aimee @ shugarysweets on August 23, 2011

Nutella No Bake Cookies with peanut butter and Nutella. YUM.
Yes, everyone loves a good fudge no bake cookie. I happen to like Nutella mixed in with the peanut butter. I mean, where can you go wrong?
 
Oh, and eat these cold. They are way so much better that way. 
Nutella No Bake Cookies with peanut butter and Nutella. YUM.

I was just thinking this morning…”I wonder if there is such a thing as a healthy cookie”…now I am wondering if I can use s sugar substitute to make this wonderfully delcious looking cookie. Any thoughts?

Don’t know any reason why you couldn’t use Splenda or Stevia.

If it turns out, let us know!

Chemically, it might not work as the sugar/milk/cocoa/fat mixture coupled with the boiling time creates a fudge that sets up when it cools. I’m not sure what happens when you sub out the sugar for a low-volume sweetening substitute.

Coconut sugar is much healthier (full of minerals) and it does not convert to carbohydrates in the digestion process like white sugar does. It tastes just like white sugar.

I used half sugar and half splenda. A little soft but very yummy !!

Yes I make mine using 1/2 regular sugar and 1/2 Splenda

These look fantastic!! I love no-bake cookies…my college roommates and I used to make a variety of these with rice krispies and chocolate. And you’re SO right–eating them cold is the absolute best! :) Thanks for sharing.

These are my ultimate PMS food. I usually use cocoa powder, but nutella might be just what the doctor ordered. I’ll try this next time I need a fix…(I also usually eat them straight out of the pan. They rarely make it to the fridge!)

I’ve been trying to find a good recipe to use Nutella. Now if I can make this before my kids eat all the Nutella straight from the jar that would be great!

Don’t just eat cold. Eat them frozen! I make so many of these and then freeze them thinking that they’ll keep for awhile. Unfortunately, when they’re all chewy and frozen that’s when they taste the best, so that’s when I eat them all!

I printed this out for the recipe book when I received it yesterday. As it turned out, the I was going to a friend’s for dinner, and she asked me to bring something chocolatey. I only had 45 minutes, and all the ingredients, so I thought I’d give these a bash.

They turned out just great! I did half the batch as per your recipe, and then the other half I added a cup of cashews too – a delicious addition! Next time, I think I might add coconut too! :)

Thanks for the awesome recipe!

My grandmother used to make these with just cocoa and call them “Little Blops.” I grew up eating them because my mom never cooked and she could make these! I LOVE the nutella addition and will DEFINITELY be adding them to my cookbook!

My daughter and I made these this past week and the addition of Nutella is brilliant. I posted the recipe and linked back to your blog and this post.

About how many cookies do you get from this specific amount of ingredients?

It really depends on how big you make them. But I usually get about 5-6 dozen.

I haven’t made no bakes in years because my 5 year old hates peanut butter and can taste it in things where I had no idea it was even there. LOL! Anyone know if you can use Biscoff or almond butter in place of the PB and make it work?

Hi Laura, you can definitely use biscoff in it’s place! here is a link to my recipe using biscoff: http://www.shugarysweets.com/2011/11/biscoff-no-bake-cookies

Hi, are these supposed to come crunchy or chewy? I left them in the fridge overnight but did not become hard.

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets September 1, 2013 at 7:04 am

They are a soft cookie, but firm enough to pick up and handle. I would double check your measurements if they never hardened enough.

Reply

CRB February 1, 2014 at 6:04 am

I had the same problem. Did some research and found that if the cookies stay sticky and do not set, you need to boil the mixture for about 3 mins, not just 1. Retried, and they were perfect!

Donna October 27, 2013 at 11:56 am

These look ….the BOMB….Question could I “oomph” the hazelnut/filbert factor by subbing in hazelnut butter for the peanut butter??…Kind of a Ferrero Rocher thing goin’ on?!….The Biscoff idea sounds stellar as well…You are a Master Baker by the way…I visit often and am ALWAYS impressed…Bravo!

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets November 20, 2013 at 8:32 pm

Nope. When I first wrote this recipe, I used margarine. Now I tend to use unsalted butter for everything :)

Hi Aimee,
I made these last week…soooo yummy! My question is yours are so shiny and pretty mine tasted great but had a dull finish…any ideas why this is happening? I’m wondering if I am cooking them too long or not long enough???
Thanks,
Karen

Reply

aimee @ shugarysweets December 15, 2013 at 9:35 pm

I’m not sure, I have had mine turn out dull, and I’ve had it shiny. The only thing I can think of is possibly it’s the brand of cocoa (I know I use different brands at different times)!

Reply

Nancy January 4, 2014 at 1:58 pm

Does it matter if you use natural peanut butter or do you have to use one with hydrogenated oil (the more solid pb)? thanks

I want to make half of this recipe. Should the boiling only be one minute to compensate?

Reply

Mike January 29, 2014 at 4:43 am

I meant I want to make half of this recipe. Should the boiling time only be 30 seconds, so the cookies won’t be too hard and crumbly?

Anonymous June 16, 2014 at 10:21 pm

I was excited about the prospect of “no-bake” but the amount of sugar these call for, in addition to other sweet ingredients, was disastrous. Couldn’t eat them, way too sweet. I’m sorry I wasted three cups of oats on this.
