One of my favorite recipes of all time are my mom’s Gorilla Poops (a.k.a. No-Bake cookies). Even though the name sounds disgusting, they are absolutely divine. I know that everyone has their favorite recipe for them, but I really think that hers are the best.
In a saucepan, combine butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa powder and heat over medium heat. Bring to a rolling boil and let boil for one minute. Remove your saucepan from the heat.
Add Nutella and vanilla to hot mixture and stir until combined. Add oats and stir until completely incorporated.
Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheets lined with wax paper. Let cool (or you can eat them all warm and gooey- that’s yummy too!).
*Sometimes, this recipe turns out more runny or more dry . . . I really think that it depends on weather, altitude, and how long it boils. I would start out by adding only 2 cups of oats and if it’s runny, add a little more oats. I vary from 2 1/2 cups to 3 1/2 cups of oats each time I make these.
