Family Favorites

My family isn't crazy about the white chocolate chips used in most macadamia nut cookies, but these are incredible!

Feel free to use the chips (...or chunks!) of your choice. Make a lot... they'll go quickly! :) For my husband and I, I use this recipe. When the kids are home, I double it.
