It’s no secret that the kitchen is my favorite room in my house…I’ve talked numerous times about how sad I was to leave behind the kitchen I designed in our old house in North Carolina when we recently moved to Washington, DC. Despite not having my dream kitchen in our rental right now, I still enjoy spending most of my time there-and engaging my boys to hopefully encourage them to love to cook as well.
I recently discovered the Food Network show The Kitchen with Katie Lee and it’s given me plenty of inspiration for recipes to try! And you’ll drool over the gorgeous the amazing LG Home Appliances it’s furnished with-hello dream kitchen!
I have to share with you a recent recipe I tried with my boys from the show-Cow Pile Cookies, yeah, they were a hit with the little guys! But first, I can’t go on without letting y’all know you can hop over to the LG Facebook page to enter their “Caption This” contest where you can submit your caption to LG commercials for a chance to win your own LG Door-in-Door Refrigerator, um yes please!! Have you seen this fridge? It has a super cool compartment in the door that you can open to grab something quickly, like milk or condiments, and you save energy by not opening up your entire fridge!
Okay, so I saw these Cow Pile cookies on The Kitchen and knew my boys would be on board with making these for sure-not only are they chocolatey delicious, but the name alone encourages hours of laughter and giggles. I adapted the recipe a bit by using Nutella instead of peanut butter and adding in some chocolate chips!
No Bake Cow Pile Cookies: Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Version
- 2 cups sugar
- 8 tbsp margarine
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 2 1/2-3 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
In a saucepan combine sugar, butter, milk and vanilla and heat over medium heat until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat. Stir in Nutella and 2 1/2 cups of rolled oats and mix until well blended, if mixture is too thin add additional 1/2 cup of oats. Stir in chocolate chips. Allow to cool/thicken for 10 minutes then scoop spoonfuls onto wax paper lined baking sheet. Allow to cool for one hour before serving.
I hope you love these no bake cookies as much as my boys did, and don’t forget to hop over to LG’s Facebook page Caption This contest and enter to win that gorgeous LG Door-in-Door Refrigerator!!
