Bake these for someone special. Macadamia nuts give them a sensational crunch.


Makes about 4 dozen cookies


2 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (6 ounces) white chocolate chips
3/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. Melt unsweetened chocolate in top of double boiler over hot, not boiling, water. Remove from heat; cool. Cream butter, melted chocolate and sugar in large bowl until blended. Add egg and vanilla; beat until light. Blend in flour, baking soda, chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until firm. Do not overbake. Remove to wire racks to cool.
