As temperatures continue to climb, I find myself dreading my oven more and more. I know that as we move into summer I'll find every excuse I can to abandon it all together. Of course, that doesn't mean I still don't need my cookies, and that's where the no-bake version comes in so handy.
I've made plenty of batches of no-bake cookies over the years, but this recipe from Shugary Sweets that incorporates Nutella are my favorite by far. The creamy hazelnut spread just gives them a little something extra that makes them so good you'll need to make extra.
