Thursday Treats: Boiled Chocolate Cookies {Company's Coming} + No-Bake [Nutella] Cookies {Me}


For some reason, I had my heart set on making No-Bakes this week. The first time I had made them was for college lunch and I remember having tray full stacked on the racks. Making treats was one of my favourite things to do in the kitchen.


I searched in at least 10 of my cookbooks for this classic treat, when finally I came across this one in one of my Company's Coming books. I'll admit, I was ready to just use a recipe online! The only thing is, my memory is either getting really bad, or the recipe at college is one-of-a-kind; the recipe doesn't jive with what's in my head :P

I definitely remember putting PB in the mixture though, so I put some Nutella in mine--I'm out of PB.

The cookies are very moist with a hint of Nutella. I love the flavour of the oats, and since I didn't put very much sugar, these cookies have a dark chocolate taste to them.

Excellent for Valentine's Day...you can indulge without getting sick of chocolate {although, I don't who would! :P}
