TARDIS: No-Bake Nutella Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
I invented these because I wanted to create cookies that had Nutella in them and I wanted a no-bake cookie for the summer. No one wants to have a 350〫F heat source in the house in the summer.
For some reason, I always want to watch Dr. Who after I make these cookies. Because of this, I've named these cookies TARDIS, after the Doctor's time-traveling police box. TARDIS, of course, is an acronym for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space.
So, here they are: TARDIS.
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup Nutella (I usually eyeball this because it's so sticky)
pinch of salt (~1/8 tsp)
1/2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp milk
3 cups Rice Krispies
Beat together butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add vanilla and Nutella. Beat together until well blended.
Add milk, salt, and flour. Stir until blended.
Add Rice Krispies. Stir until all of the cereal is coated with the Nutella mixture. At this point, the mixture will be sticky and hard to form into cookies.
Put bowl of dough in the freezer for about an hour. The dough should now stick to itself and hold together.
Using hands, form dough into balls (about the size of meatballs) and place on a plate. Put plate of cookies back in the freezer to harden for two hours.
Once the cookies are fully hardened, they can be taken off the plate and stored in a Ziploc bag.
They will keep in the freezer for over a month, but good luck keeping them that long.
