Macadamia Nut Brownies: when it comes to baking, chocolate has a BFF in macadamia nuts. They taste great together. 

So is it any wonder that this exotic nut from the South Pacific makes awesome brownies?

As with any easy brownie recipe, you can always skip a step or two and use a brownie mix instead of making it from scratch. But this recipe calls for just 8 ingredients. It’s well worth the extra minute or two needed to measure and mix this version from scratch.

Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Bake time: 25-29 minutes
Chill time: 1 hour
Makes 16 brownies, 2 inches square
