Today I am taking part in a SWEET blog with some of my fellow Calgary Bloggers. In fact, it is even called The Sweet Holiday Blog Hop. This week I have been baking up a storm but, honestly, I don’t always have time to bake. I love quick and delicious cookies that I can whip up from ingredients in the pantry without having to bake for hours. No-bake cookies are PERFECT when you are in a hurry.
Today I decided to make Nutella, Pretzel and Cranberry No-Bake Cookies. I am not one of those people who will try to convince you that Nutella is a healthy food. However, I AM one of those people that will try to convince you that it is delicious. The sweet of the Nutella mixes with the salty crunch of the pretzels and the tang of dried cranberries. They come together to make a wonderful, delicious cookie that you can have ready to serve in 10 minutes.
