  1. This recipe is now on a growing list of must make some day.

  2. 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?

  3. OH I bet these are awesome! I can’t wait to try them!

  4. 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! πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

  5. This is a great recipe. I’m going to let my girls make these today!

  6. What a perfect way to use Nutella. Yummy. Come visit us. We have a terrific tomato pie recipe this week.

  7. Once I’ m no longer stuck on my back due to stupid piriformis syndrome, I will be making this!!

  8. No Bake cookies are on of my most favorite! I Love that you added Nutella!

  9. I have all of these ingredients and will be making them this week! My favorite lately is a peanut butter and nutella sandwich. YUM! Thanks for posting!

  10. Amazing!! Love no-bakes and love Nutella…this recipe has my name written all over it! πŸ™‚

  11. 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!)

  12. 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!


  13. LOVE NUTELLA! Going to kitchen now to make these.
    We would love for you to share this at our link party, Crafty Lassie Tuesday. It ends tonight at 5pm.
    We are having a giveaway! Hope to see you there πŸ™‚

  14. Oh goodness…those sound SCRUMPTIOUS!!! Gonna have to bookmark that recipe!!

  15. 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!

  16. 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! πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  17. This is great, I will definitely be trying this soon! Now gfc following, please pop by, Karima πŸ™‚

  18. I just posted yesterday about the ‘classic’ chocolate & peanut butter no bake cookies. Now I’ve got to make them again with Nutella! Fantastic idea. ‘Pinned’ it so I’d remember. πŸ™‚

  19. Yum! no-bakes and Nutella are two of my favorite things. Can’t wait to try your recipe πŸ™‚

  20. Amy can I just say youre the best?! You are always so good to link up! Thank you for always “having my back” girl! πŸ™‚

  26. 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!

  27. 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.

  28. I love this recipe. Aside from being “No Bake” it is very easy to follow. Cant get enough of it and will try other combinations. Thanks a lot.

  29. Why to omit the Nutella? They’re great and not so difficult to make! Thank you for sharing the recipe with us!

  30. What a creative addition to such a simple cookie!

  31. Anonymous

    How do you think this would taste with Biscoff spread instead of Nutella?

  32. @ anonymous- are you a mind reader? I’ve been meaning to try that myself! I bet it would be great.

  33. Anonymous

    Let me know how they turn out!

  34. Nutella and no bake? This is too good to be true!

  35. Anonymous

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

  36. Hi, this recipe sounds delicious, but I was wondering if you can substitute butter or anything else really for the margarine?

  37. Just made these and they were sooo yummy! I left out the peanut butter though and added a 1/4 cup butterscotch chips. Love the addition of the nutella!

    Been making these for years but was delighted with your addition of Nutella. My honey loves hazelnut flavor! These r great for children to make or to give away also! Thanks for sharing!

  40. Laura

    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?

  41. Really easy!! So yummy! Just finished making them minuts ago and have already tasted them!! Two thumbs up! I love your recipes and your ideas! Where do you come up with your ideas ? Keep the recipes comming I love trying new recipes!!

  42. KVM

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

  43. Donna

    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!

  44. Jennifer

    Can I use reg butter instead of margarine?

  45. Amanda

    These were so easy to make. I have never had success with making no bake cookies before and these were a success. So thrilled and my kids even did extra chores for an extra.

    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???

  47. Nancy

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

  48. Baker :)

    Amazing recipe!
    Turns out so delicious!
    Tip: put the mix into cupcake liners for a great shape
    otherwise, quick, easy, and yummy cookies.

  49. Shab

    By cocoa, do you mean cocoa powder?

  50. Mike

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

  51. Mike

    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?

  52. Cathy

    Just wanted to let you know I am sharing your wonderful recipe tomorrow in my Gluten-Free Recipe RoundUp with a link back to your original post!
    Have a terrific weekend!

  59. Anonymous

    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.

    Can you omit the peanut butter and double the Nutella?

  61. Lucille

    I made these today and loved them.

    I made these a few weeks ago for some friends and I, and though they were REALLY sweet, they were a big hit! I only had chunky, natural peanut putter on hand so that’s what I used.

    I am making them again for friends tonight, and this time, I’m cutting the sugar in half and using a bit more crunchy peanut butter and Nutella. They’re setting in the freezer right now and they look exactly like the first batch I made, so I think they will turn out great!

    I posted above a few times about making these cookies.

    The first time, I made the recipe as-is. Good potential, but wayyyyy too sweet, and with an unhealthy amount of sugar.

    The second time, I made them with half the sugar and they were much better, but still too sweet. Tonight, my boyfriend made the recipe with only a quarter cup of sugar, and I’m convinced that we’ll be able to make them with no sugar at all next time, and they’ll be even yummier for it. We love the cookies with less sugar, more peanut butter (Adam’s natural PB) and Nutella.

    Would you consider trying your recipe with little to no sugar and revising it? I’m sure most of your readers would appreciate it.

    how do we store them ? will they melt if i store in a glass jar ? my daughter wants to make some for her school fair , will they last in the heat ?

  81. Reina

    Could I substitute unsweetened coconut milk instead of regular milk?Β 

  82. Ashley

    I made these today exactly as written. Super yummy but I didn’t taste much Nutella. Still as far as no bake cookies go, they are one of the best! I can’t wait till my mom gets home to try them. They are her treat for her first day at her new job! Β Thanks for the recipe!
