No-bake drop cookies made with oatmeal, cocoa, and Nutella®. The most important step is keeping the rolling boil for at least one full minute.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (such as Nutella®)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine sugar, butter, milk, and cocoa in a saucepan over medium heat until they are a smooth liquid. Bring to a rolling boil; continue to boil for at least 1 minute.
  2. 2 Remove from heat and stir in chocolate-hazelnut spread and vanilla extract until dissolved. Return the pot to the still-warm burner, or the lowest setting on gas stove, and add oats. Mix well.
  3. 3 Leave the pot on the warm burner while you drop cookies by heaping spoonfuls onto wax paper. Let set and serve.

Chef's Notes

Do not substitute margarine for butter; You can substitute smooth peanut butter for Nutella(R); They will cool very fast which is why, in order to scoop easily, they need to be kept on the warm burner, otherwise the last of the "dough" will be hardened before you can scoop them. No need to refrigerate, if you do they lose that no-bake "shine."


  1. Used hazelnut flavouring instead of vanilla to boost the nut flavour. Also used more oats to cut down on the sweetness. Have made these several times. So easy and good.
  2. Delicious. Quick & Easy.
