While stalking friends on Facebook, I came across this beautiful recipe for a dessert including Nutella from a fellow food blogger. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE Nutella. And so do my roommates.
I thought I would give it a shot.
Start out with a sauce pan and melt 1/2 cup of butter aka 1 stick
Once melted add 1 & 3/4 cups of white sugar
Next you wanna measure out 1/2 cup of milk. I used 2% milk cause I gotta watch my figure!
Last but not least, add 1/2 cup of cocoa!
MIX MIX MIX
Turn the stove off and add 1 teaspoon Vanilla. I was amazed, when I added the Vanilla the mixture started boiling at the site of entry.
Here’s the good part, add your Nutella. 1/2 cup (or more)
For a bit of nutrition, add 3 cups of uncooked oatmeal
Again, MIX MIX MIX
Then prepare your bake ware. I couldn’t find my cookie sheets so I used this grate that I found in my oven. So resourceful, I know. I covered it with wax paper for a no stick, easy clean up.
According to the original recipe it says to “drop quickly” onto the waxed paper however when I did that, the balls spread across the paper and kind of flattened out into cookies because the mixture was still so warm. I would suggest waiting a few minutes for the mixture to harden a bit so when you drop in onto the paper they hold their shape a little more. Evidence below.
Never judging a book by its cover, or a dessert by its shape I ate them regardless. WOW, melt in your mouth and perfect with a glass of milk.
