    Chewy Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I know y’all love thick and chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies! What makes them even better are Macadamia Nuts that have been hand carried all the way back from Hawaii! Well, maybe not hand carried directly… more like lugged around in a suitcase… but I think you get my drift.

    Coconut adds that little something.

    You can also replace the macadamia nuts with other types of nuts, such as hazelnuts, walnuts or aromatic pecans. Chop them freshly for best results.

    A special christmassy flavor is added when you add dry roasted almonds. The fine marzipan flavor gives the cookies a special twist. For some extra chewiness add some mini marshmellows.


    Store your cookies the right way

    Your delicious Macadamia Chocolate Chip Cookies should be stored in an airtight container. Cookie containers or metal tins are best. These keep them dark at the same time.

    Anything with nuts should get as little light as possible. But probably these little treats don’t survive that long anyway.

    Also try Macadamia Nut Shortbread Cookies, Chocolate Hazelnut Spread or one of the other amazing christmas cookies.
