Here are some common questions for the Nutella recipe for no bake cookies.
So I tend to use quick oats when I make no bakes. But, rolled oats can be used. You will get a chewier texture, and if you are not careful measuring the cookies can become drier in texture.
A rolling boil is when you allow your mixture to come to a full boil. That even when you stir the mixture, you will have constant bubbles popping up in the mixture.
Adding too much oats to the cookie mixture can make your cookies hard and crumbly in texture. It is important to measure properly.
