Natalie Scott's of RULES FOR RIDERS Favorite Holiday Dessert #Recipe & #Giveaway!

I have a confession to make, I turn into a big cookie monster during the holidays! A friend of mine made me these Nutella cookies that were to die for! They were so good that we were sitting at the Italian restaurant, Pomo, when a woman came up and practically accosted us for the recipe! She asked my friend for her secret recipe, and did she tell her? Hell no! She told the woman to Google it. I know it’s not very Christmas-y. But anyway, I finally convinced her to divulge her secret recipe, here it is! I dare you to eat only one!

Nutella No-Bake Cookies:
½ cup butter
½ cup milk
2 cups sugar
4 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup Nutella
3 cups quick cooking oats (oatmeal)

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. Take the pan off of the heat and add Nutella and vanilla to the hot mixture. Stir until combined. Add oats and stir until completely incorporated. Put dollops onto a baking sheet with wax paper on the bottom. Let cool in fridge until solid and voila! The most awesome cookies you’ve ever tasted!
