We all know and love No Bake Cookies. They couldn’t be easier to make, taste great, and give you a pretty serious sugar rush.

Over the weekend, I got it into my head that I just had to make some. Instead of going with the classic recipe, I turned to Foodgawker to see if anyone out there had switched things up a little bit.Hot Chocolate No Bake Cookies | A Nerd Cooks

The lovely duo over at Oh, Sweet Basil tweaked the classic recipe to make it taste like a mug of hot chocolate by adding some hot chocolate mix, Nutella, and miniature marshmallows. This I could definitely get on board with.

This recipe comes from Oh, Sweet Basil.

You’ll need (makes ~36 cookies):

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 2 tbs hot chocolate mix
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 cups marshmallow bits (mini marshmallows will work, too)

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set these aside.

In a large saucepan, add the butter, sugar, salt, hot chocolate mix, cocoa powder, and milk. Heat over medium heat, whisking occasionally until everything comes to a rapid boil. Allow it to cook for about a minute, stirring continuously.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the Nutella and vanilla extract until smooth.

Add the oats and marshmallows, stirring until everything is well combined.

Using a cookie scoop (or heaping tablespoon), scoop the cookies out onto the prepared baking sheets.

Allow them to cool for at least a half an hour, or until the cookies set up.
