Nutella No-Bake Cookies

nutella no bake cookies

When I was a kid, I used to love when my mom would make no-bake cookies.  She rarely ever made them, so they were an awesome treat when she did.  Since she rarely made them, I thought they were some magical treat that was really hard to make.

I didn’t realize how easy they were to make until the first time I made them on my own.  Even though they still tasted great, it kind of ruined the “magical, really hard to make” feeling I had for them as a kid.

Which is why I had to switch them up to make them taste better.  Adding Nutella shouldn’t make that big of a difference, but it really did.  When you add Nutella, they kind of taste like fudge.  Fudgy oatmeal cookies that take 10 minutes to make… what gets better than that?  The magic was back for me after I made these!

I also made some delicious cookies that I’m excited to share with you guys!  These cookies can be best described as “Oreo cookies that have the texture of a chocolate chip cookies.” So basically better Oreo’s.  I used my standard chocolate chip cookie recipe and decreased the amount of flour by a little bit and it made the most amazing cookies.  They’re pretty chewy on the inside and the outsides are semi-crunchy.  The best 
part is the bites with the Cookies and Cream Hershey’s Chocolate in them.  These are so good! 




Oreo Pudding Cookies with Cookies and Cream Hershey’s 
Chocolate

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, very soft
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 packet (4.2 oz) Oreo Cookies ‘n’ Cream Pudding
1 bar Cookies ‘n’ Cream Hershey’s Chocolate, crushed
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Place the very soft butter in a medium-large mixing bowl. Add the sugars, salt, vanilla, and stir well. Add the egg and stir until well blended. Add the baking soda, flour, and Oreo pudding, mixing until blended. Stir in the chips and crushed Hershey’s bar.
  3. Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough onto light-colored baking sheets. Flatten into disks, using gentle pressure from your fingers.
  4. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned; the tops shouldn’t brown, they should still be slightly gooey. Remove the cookies from the oven, let them rest on the pan for 5 minutes, then slide them onto a rack to cool completely. 

One Bowl Cranberry-White Chocolate Orange Cookies

I got a precious new kitten; his name is Francis.

It broke my heart taking him away from his family, so I knew I had to make him feel extra special when he came home with me…

…which is why I made him a house!!

To find instructions on how to make the house, click here.

I also made him some milk and cookies… but he only liked the milk. 😉
These cookies are amazing though!! Seriously good.  Maybe even my new favorite… the different flavors all go together so well.  I was looking for a “one bowl” recipe and these are what I found.  So they’re obviously easy, since they’re one bowl, but the taste is out of this world!!

One Bowl Cranberry-White Chocolate Orange Cookies
King Arthur Flour
Yield: about 4 1/2 dozen cookies.

1 cup (2 sticks, 8 ounces) unsalted butter, very soft
1 cup (7 1/2 ounces) packed brown sugar
3/4 cup (5 1/4 ounces) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/8 teaspoon orange oil (4 to 5 drops) (can substitute with almond!)
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 3/4 cups (11 5/8 ounces) All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups (9 ounces) white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups (5 1/4 ounces) dried cranberries
1 cup (3 3/4 ounces) chopped pecans or walnuts
Place the very soft butter in a medium-large mixing bowl. Add the sugars, salt, vanilla, and orange oil, and stir well. Add the egg and stir until well blended. Add the baking soda and flour, mixing until blended. Stir in the chips, cranberries, and nuts.

Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough onto light-colored baking sheets. Flatten into disks, using gentle pressure from your fingers.

Bake the cookies in a preheated 375°F oven for 10-12 minutes, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned; the tops shouldn’t brown, they should still be slightly gooey. Remove the cookies from the oven, let them rest on the pan for 5 minutes, then slide them onto a rack to cool completely.
