Nutella No-Bake Cookies

Print Friendly

 
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. :)
I have recently discovered the deliciousness of Nutella . . . and I am totally hooked! When I saw this recipe for Nutella No-Bake cookies over at Baking with Basil, I had to put them to the test to see if I loved them as much as my mom's no-bake cookies. I am totally a peanut butter and chocolate junkie, but these cookies are a close second!

Nutella No-Bake Cookies
Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 3/4 cup granulated sugar
4 Tablespoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup Nutella
3 cups quick cooking oats

Directions:
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.

    This looks so good! Peanut butter ones are also heavenly :) Do you think i could sub in mashed bananas for butter and agave for the sugar and then increase the amount of oats? Thanks!

  2. I tried this over the weekend, it’s really yummy, it’s more like a truffle than a cookie :) it’s too sweet for my taste though, even after using just 1 1/2c of sugar. I’ll lessen it next time. Do you think it will be as delicious and gooey if there is no nutella?

    thanks!

    Made these for the first time the other night and they were a HUGE hit with colleagues at work (as well as with hubby’s colleagues). My 4 year-old and 16 month-old really liked them too. So easy!

    Thank you! We love Gorilla poops (I have never heard that name, but I love it!) but now that we have a peanut allergy we don’t make them anymore. This will be a wonderful replacement.
