No Bake Nutella Cookies




With all of the high temps and humidity we have been having, I found the perfect No Bake Cookie to make for a light dessert. You read that right, no bake means no oven, and it has Nutella, cocoa, oatmeal. and coconut.  What could be better?  Oatmeal means that they are healthy, right/?   I am going to serve these over the weekend with Drunken Fruit Salad (to be posted soon.)  


I saw this recipe here, on foodie crush.com.  These beauties are so easy to make. I didn't have any hazelnuts and I used almond milk.  The butter, milk cocoa, sugar, and vanilla are cooked on the stove, and then mixed into the coconut oatmeal mixture. You then form 1 1/2" balls, and refrigerate. I flattened the little balls.  I couldn't stop eating these little cookies, so good,  chewy and chocolaty with coconut. My husband was stealing them off of the cookie sheet, too. This recipe will not disappoint.  Enjoy these cookies, and keep your kitchen cool.
