I came up with these unbelievable meltaways purely by accident one day while trying to make cookies using the ingredients in my cupboard.  The result was fantastic!

Chocolate Macadamia Meltaways Recipe

Chocolate Macadamia Meltaways

½ cup butter, softened

¼ cup confectioners’ sugar

½ tsp. vanilla

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

1 jar (3 ½ oz.) macadamia nuts, finely chopped

Filling:   1 cup (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips

½ cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts

Additional confectioners’ sugar

In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar light and fluffy.  Beat in vanilla.  Gradually add flour and mix well.  Stir in nuts (dough will be stiff); set aside.

For filling, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth.  Stir in nuts; cool slightly.  Drop ½ teaspoonfuls onto a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Shape teaspoonfuls of dough around each piece of chocolate-nut mixture so it is completely covered.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake at 375 F. for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned.  Roll warm cookies in confectioners’ sugar; cool on wire racks.
