How to Make Nutella No Bake Cookies
Full directions are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post. This is a visual walk through on how to make these easy Nutella cookies.
Start by melting butter in pan with the sugar and cocoa powder with milk.
Once the butter is melted bring the mixture to a boil for one full minute to melt down the sugar crystal.
Now you will mix in the other ingredients and then scoop the cookie dough onto aluminum foil or parchment paper lined sheet or counter.
Storing Nutella Cookies
These oatmeal no bake cookies are stored at room temperature in an airtight container. These will store for 4-7 days. They will begin to dry out.
You can also freeze these hazelnut no bake cookies for 2-4 months. Just store in a freezer container or bag. Try to remove as much air as you can if in a freezer bag.
Does This Recipe Double Well
Go right ahead and double this cookie recipe if you would like. I have doubled the recipe in the past and had no issues. Just make sure to use a large enough pan so that it can hold it all once you add in the last of the ingredients to the batch of cookies.
Can I Use Rolled Oats Instead of Quick Oats
Quick oats adds a chewy texture to the no bake cookies. Now, the other thing about rolled oats is it will take more moisture and will leave your cookies drier than if you use quick oats.
You can swap but know the texture will alter a bit on the cookies.
Why Are My No Bake Cookies Dry
Dry no bake cookies is from not enough wet ingredients or too much oats mixed in the recipe. Make sure to measure properly or you will find your cookies will dry out once they begin to set up.
