A little bit of Heaven

OH. MY. GOODNESS.  Seriously, these are amazing.  I was able to try this recipe this weekend for a grownup version of no-bake chocolate cookies.  They are very high on my list of "must make again soon" type of cookies.  As a matter of fact, the girls were fighting over the last cookie this morning.  Really, I made a double batch and they did not even make it through two days with a house full of girls and hormones.  Oh well, maybe next time I will hide them in my bedroom!!

Here is the recipe for Nutella No-bake Cookies

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 and 3/4 cup sugar 
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 3 cups rolled oats 

  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa.
    Bring to a boil stirring constantly.  Reduce heat and continue to boil for 3 minutes, still stirring.
  2. Remove from heat and add Vanilla
  3. Add Nutella
  4. Add oats and mix well.
  5. Drop quickly onto waxed paper and allow cookies to cool and set.
Word of warning, Beware of Fingers!!  They are everywhere!

Have you ever wondered how we are so much like a batch of cookies.  Heavenly Father can take us, in all our raw materials, with all our imperfections, and mix us with others so that, together we balance and complement the others.  I am thinking of my family right now.  With all of the fighting, laughter, hormones, hiccups, sorrows, trials, and love; somehow we blend together into something that is so much more than we could ever be as individuals.  My children and my husband remind me frequently of who I am and exactly who I want to be like.  They are my encouragement, my support, my enthusiasm, and my determination.  When things go right (or wrong) they are right there beside me to help me on my course.  So today, eat a cookie (or two) and spend a few moments being thankful for the blessings that bind us together.
