Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Macadamia Cookies
Rich, buttery chocolate cookies made with chocolate chips, macadamia nuts and coconut.
- 8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups unsalted roasted macadamia nuts
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup sweetened flaked dried coconut (4 oz.)
In a glass bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (bottom of bowl should not touch water), stir chopped chocolate and butter often until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and allow to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla on high until smooth. Add chocolate mixture and beat until well blended. Stir in flour and baking powder, then beat just until moistened. Stir in macadamia nuts, chocolate chips, and coconut.
Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions, about 2 inches apart, onto buttered or cooking parchment-lined cookie sheets.
Bake cookies in a 350° oven just until firm on the edges but still soft when pressed in the middle, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool.
