This recipe was given to me by a friend...I think they are too strong w/the cocoa & semisweet chocolate, so I chose to use milk choc or peanut butter chips for a milder taste. The combination of pecans and milk chocolate chips are my favorite, but also like the hazelnuts...the macadamia nuts work well with either the milk chocolate or the peanut butter chips...
No matter how you combine the flavors, they are very tasty!
