Procedure

Step 1 (Chocolate cookies): In your mixing bowl, add your flour, icing sugar, salt and cocoa powder and mix well together. Once uniformly mixed, add butter.

Step 2: Once the butter is fully combined, add chocolate chips, vanilla and milk then knead well until you obtain a non sticky and firm dough. Wrap the latter in cling film and allow to chill for 20-30 minutes.

Step 3 (Peanuts cookies): In your mixing bowl, add your flour, icing sugar and salt and mix well together. Once uniformly mixed, add butter.

Step 4: Once the butter is fully combined, add crushed peanuts, almond or peanut essence, food coloring and milk then knead well until you obtain a non sticky and firm dough. Wrap the latter in cling film and allow to chill for 20-30 minutes.

Step 5: Using a rolling pin, flatten your cookie dough (thickness ~5mm) and cut out shapes using your favorite cookie cutter/s

Step 6: Keep a portion of your cookie dough from each flavor (chocolate/peanuts) and using a smaller cookie cutter or plunger, cut out shapes. Stick (using a small amount of water) shapes made with peanut cookie dough on the chocolate cookies and shapes made with the chocolate cookie dough on the peanut cookies !

Step 7: Your duo cookies are ready for baking into preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes

Step 8: Out of oven ! Allow your cookies to cool on a wire rack

Step 9: Time for packaging! Get out your favorite tissue/crepe paper, cellophane paper, sticky tape and ribbons.

Step 10: Cut out long rectangular shapes from your paper using different colors. Preferentially ones of similar colors with your cookies .

Step 11: Roll the papers and cut the top as in the picture below. Eventually wrap 6 cookies in cellophane paper while leaving the top part open.

Step 12: Place your paper on top of your cookies in the cellophane bag and tie the cellophane/color paper together.

Step 13: Voila !
