Nutella Surprise

Hey guys,

We're into the second week in December which really means this is the last week that anyone will actually be doing work at work. It's crazy I know but this year has really managed to evade me in many ways. A lot of stuff has been going on and I've been saying and I'll say it again I will share the information with you guys when I'm ready.. I promise it will be this year though ;)

Today I wanted to share a variation on a recipe which I've seen floating around the magic Nutella Cookie that doesn't need the oven.

Here's what you'll need:

2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp vanilla essence
pinch of salt
1/8 cup peanut butter (if you use crunchy peanut butter there's an extra texture which is delicious)
1/2 cup Nutella (or more if you're passionate about it)
3 cup Rice Crispies (depending on how much crunch you want)

So here's what you do:

1. In a pot, bring to a boil the milk, sugar, cocoa and butter. After a minute or two remove from heat.

2. Add in remaining ingredients and stir! Try not to over stir it because the rice crispies will get soppy which isn't much fun.

3. Use a large tablespoon and lay them onto a baking sheet. Then pop them into the fridge. They won't get super hard so you may need to leave them in the fridge until you want to eat them

We had cookies for a good week and a half which was our go to snack. they aren't as sweet as you would think they would be which is good because it satisfies the sweet craving without turning you into a complete diabetic. Fun, right?

Anyway, what's your go to cookie recipe?

nutella - although i haven't had it in years - still wins all the things. just because i don't eat it (wah!) doesn't mean i don't yearn for it!

I love nutella. I often eat it with vanilla ice cream ;-) This recipe would be great to make in the holidays.
