These Hot Chocolate No Bake Cookies turn the classic no bake up a notch. They taste just like hot chocolate!
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.
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.
