“Chocolate covered macadamia nuts are a favorite treat in Polynesian Islands, and a popular souvenir for tourists. The only problem for me, however, is that I'll open a box and eat the whole thing in an hour! When I bring these back from Hawaii, they don't last long. Here's a great way to keep them around any time! They are super easy to make-- in all of my years of working with chocolate, I find that the microwave is actually the best way to melt chocolate at home (no tempering machines here!). I am using dark, milk and white chocolates to add a little twist to an island favorite! Aloha!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup good-quality dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup good quality milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup good quality white chocolate chips
  • 3 cups roasted salted macadamia nuts


  1. Place the first cup of chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat the chocolate in 15 second increments, stirring well between each time in the microwave. When the chocolate is almost completely melted, stir in 1 cup of the macadamia nuts.
  2. Use a tablespoon to scoop up spoonfuls of the nut and chocolate mixture and place on a nonstick silicone baking mat. Repeat with the other two types of chocolate. Allow to cool and harden completely before removing them from the mat to serve.
