No-Bake Nutella Cookies Recipe

These Nutella cookies were absolutely delicious!  They are really more of a candy ball though....a delicious chocolate candy ball!!!  So easy and perfect for summer.  No bake is the way to go when it's so hot out there.  These keep well in the fridge in tupperware.  I made them several days ago and just take out one or two at a time and let them get room temperature before I scarf them down!  You can find the recipe here or just scroll down below.....and enjoy!!!!  My recipe is a bit different from the original so mine is posted below with the changes.....

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cocoa
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup Nutella
 3 cups quick cooking oats (original recipe calls for rolled oats), if using coconut you may want to use less of the oats
1/2 cup to 1 cup sweetened coconut (my addition)

In a sauce pan over medium high heat, combine butter, milk, sugar and cocoa.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat and continue to boil for 3 minutes, still stirring.

Remove from heat and add vanilla.

Add Nutella.

Add quick oats and coconut.

Drop quickly on to waxed paper and allow cookies to cool and set.  (I refrigerated them in a tupperware container after they cooled and set).
