Hazelnut Crunch Cookies

Hazelnut Crunch Cookies

In my quest to keep checking things off my holiday to-do list I watched Love Actually this afternoon.

It is still tied with Christmas Vacation for the #1 most awesome Christmas movie. Because while I super love Buddy the Elf, you really can’t beat this proposal, or this freak out.

And so, in the spirit of awesome chick flick Christmas movies, I cried at appropriate intervals through the whole entire thing. Chad strategically avoided the room I was in.

But… the joke is on Chad because I have cookies.

Rice Krispies Cookies with Nutella

Which I will be using to bribe him into the freezing cold damp weather this evening to finish wrapping the trees in the front yard with lights.

These are totally bribe-worthy cookies.

Nutella. Rice Krispies. M & M’s baking bits. And they are mixed up and baked in less than 20 minutes. These cookies are super perfect for last minute get-togethers or fun neighbor gifts. Oh also! Word on the street is that some people don’t really dig Nutella. I can’t say I understand, but I CAN say that peanut butter is also delicious. Or cookie butter. WHAT?! I know. Delicious. Way better than 4 calling birds on this 4th Day of Christmas Cookies.

Lovely! And if you use almond flour instead of all purpose they are gluten free!

Oh, might have to check that label on the M & Ms and sub dark chocolate chips...I think they might have wheat in them.
