To create these delectable cookies, you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup butter (120 grams)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (60 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons roasted and ground peanuts
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (220 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 5.6 ounces white chocolate (160 grams)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped roasted peanuts

Step-by-Step Procedure

Preparing the Dough

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Before diving into the baking process, it’s crucial to preheat your oven to ensure that your cookies bake evenly.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients. In a bowl, combine the flour, powdered sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Add the roasted and ground peanuts to the mixture, stirring until well incorporated. Let the mixture rest while you prepare the wet ingredients.
  3. Prepare the wet mixture. In another bowl, beat the softened butter with the vanilla extract until creamy. Add the yogurt and continue mixing until smooth.
  4. Combine the mixtures. Gradually incorporate the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until a homogeneous dough forms.

Baking the Cookies

  1. Shape the dough. Form the dough into small balls and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Gently flatten each ball with the back of a spoon to create uniform cookies.
  2. Bake to perfection. Pop the tray into the preheated oven and bake the cookies for 8-9 minutes or until they turn lightly golden. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking.

Decorating with Chocolate

  1. Melt the white chocolate. While the cookies cool, melt the white chocolate using a bain-marie or a microwave, stirring until smooth and creamy.
  2. Dip and sprinkle. Dip half of each cooled cookie into the melted chocolate, then sprinkle the chocolate-coated portion with chopped roasted peanuts for added crunch and flavor.

Cooling and Serving

  1. Let them cool. Allow the chocolate-covered cookies to cool completely, allowing the chocolate to set and harden.
  2. Serve and enjoy! Once the chocolate has hardened, these delectable cookies are ready to be devoured. Serve them alongside a glass of cold milk for the ultimate indulgence!


In just five minutes, you’ve unlocked the secret to baking cookies that are not only delicious but also incredibly easy to make. From mixing the dough to decorating with chocolate, every step of this recipe is designed to deliver perfection. So, the next time you’re in need of a sweet treat, remember this recipe and delight your taste buds with cookies that truly melt in your mouth.


1. Can I use peanut butter instead of roasted peanuts?

Absolutely! Feel free to substitute peanut butter for roasted peanuts for a smoother texture and richer flavor.

2. Can I freeze the cookie dough for later use?

Yes, you can! Simply shape the dough into balls, place them on a baking sheet, and freeze until solid. Once frozen, transfer the dough balls to a freezer bag and store them for up to three months. When ready to bake, simply thaw the dough balls in the refrigerator overnight and bake as directed.

3. Can I use dark or milk chocolate instead of white chocolate?

Of course! Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate to suit your taste preferences. Dark chocolate will provide a richer flavor, while milk chocolate will add a creamier sweetness to the cookies.

4. How long do these cookies stay fresh?

When stored in an airtight container at room temperature, these cookies will stay fresh for up to five days. For longer storage, you can freeze the cookies for up to three months.

5. Can I add other mix-ins to the dough, such as chocolate chips or dried fruit?
