I can’t believe I am doing this…but here I am with a post with photos from my iPhone. My camera is packed away somewhere and all I can find is the battery and my lenses. I opened 3 different boxes looking for the camera body, but so far all I have found is shoes and a box full of chocolate and wine.

The movers are showing up at my front door at 8am tomorrow, which means I am desperately trying to get every last thing I own into a box. I have managed to tape a cat in a box full of towels (it was an accident -I swear!), break 2 prop plates, and drink a whole bottle of wine in the span of 2 hours.

So with my stress level at an all time high, I decided there was only one thing to do. Throw some random ingredients in a pot, heat it up, and drop it onto wax paper and see what happens. I needed chocolate, all my cookie sheets and muffin pans were already packed up, and all I had was a sauce pan…thus the Nutella No-Bake Fudge Cookies were born.

p.s. isn’t thus a stupid word? it even sounds weird when you say it out loud. or maybe I think that because of the bottle of wine I drank. either way, I just said thus.

These cookies are full of chocolate, tasty, slightly strange and fudge-y. They will get you through a chocolate withdrawal pinch and take all of 10 minutes to make. Oh and they make an excellent excuse to avoid packing.
