World Nutella Day: Nutella No Bake Cookies

Guys…I was >thisclose< to missing World Nutella Day!

It’s been a super busy week, and I didn’t realize what day it was until I picked my husband up from the train after work and was on my way home to heat up some leftovers for dinner.

I didn’t have time to stop at the store or find a recipe ahead of time, so I just trusted that I’d be able to put something together with ingredients that I had on hand at home.

Let me tell you…these cookies are DANGEROUS. Oh man…they were SO good. Super easy to put together, and I normally have all of the ingredients at home.

The addition of peanut butter makes them extra rich and delicious. I had just enough Nutella at home to make these, so now I have to go buy another vat!

I will definitely be making these beauties again. YUM!
