Reese's Pieces Nutella No Bake Cookies

I cannot resist a good No Bake Cookie.  They are one of my favorite cookies and have been since I was a little kid.  I always have the ingredients on hand, which can be a good thing and a bad thing.  So, Friday night at midnight when all I want is a few spoonfuls of warm No Bake Cookies, right out of the pan,  I have no excuse to not make them, right?   
The flavor is awesome, but the texture is my favorite.  Chewy from the oats, creamy from the peanut butter and Nutella with a slight crunch from the candy coating of the Reese's Pieces.  

You get Reese's Pieces on the bottom and the top of these irresistible treats.  Store them in an air-tight container and they stay fresh for several days.

From: Jenn@eatcakefordinner
1/2 c. unsalted butter
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
pinch of salt
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. Nutella
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. quick-cooking oats
1 c. mini Reese's Pieces, more or less

Place 30 small piles of Reese's Pieces onto parchment paper, with at least three inches between.  In a medium saucepan, melt the butter; stir in the cocoa, sugar, milk and salt.  Cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter, Nutella and vanilla.  Last, stir in the oats.  Quickly drop by spoonfuls over Reese's Pieces piles.  Immediately press additional Reese's Pieces onto top of cookies.  Work quickly because the cookies set up fast and the candy won't stick once that happens.  Store in an air-tight container.  Makes around 30 cookies

  1. These cookies sound amazing (and look soooooooo inviting!) yummy!

  2. I too love no bake cookies, something about the texture of the oatmeal. I especially love them out of the freezer. I will have to try these soon. Love that you put reese's pieces on the bottom too. Very clever.
