No-Bake Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies

No-bake cookies are great when you need a last minute snack or have a craving and don't want to wait 30 minutes. I have made similar cookies in the past with cocoa powder, but I had some Nutella sitting in the pantry and decided to go with it. The Nutella/peanut butter combination is to die for.

I opted to use applesauce in this recipe in place of milk or oil, and it did a perfect job holding the cookies together. It also lightened up the cookies, which is always preferred. Just don't ask me how many I ate. You don't want to know. Enjoy!
