Merenda Chocolate Cookies


Like most kids, my girls both have a sweet tooth, but I try not to pump them full of sugar if I can help it. However, when the younger one asked me to make chocolate cookies – she’s two years old and pronounces it “toc-o-late too-tees” – how could I say no?

I decided to try a recipe with chocolate spread (Merenda in Greece where I live, but Nutella in the UK and USA, I believe). I used one from Sally’s Baking Addiction which has the chocolate spread swirled through the cookie dough and it was delicious! The only thing I changed was the chocolate chips. Whenever I make chocolate cookies, I never use ready-made chocolate chips. I prefer to chop up a bar of chocolate – it’s a bit more work, but worth it for chunkier chunks of chocolate!


I didn’t decorate the tops with chocolate chips and salt as the original recipe suggests either – but nobody seemed to mind!


Cookies and milk, anyone?
