Chocolaty White Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

             So clearly this week has been quite hectic as I’m writing this post the day I am planning on publishing it! I don’t know about other bloggers but to me this is cutting it a tad close! And to be honest, I had no idea what I was going to bring you faithful followers two days ago! Luckily, I had two things I wanted to accomplish this week that would help me get some blog-inspiration: One of my besties got engaged and I wanted to try a new product….

                1- Kristen, one of my BFFs, got engaged this past weekend and I couldn’t be happier for her and John. So what do people like me do for celebrations?? Bake, of course! 2-I recently spotted a new item in the baking aisle that I wanted to give a whirl. I love to bake things from scratch and all but sometimes time is just not working on my side! Enter, cookie mixes and random candies left in the fridge to use up!

                So I combined those two happenings and wound up with some dynamite cookies! Buttery, chocolaty and a bit crunchy is how I would describe them but really all you need to know is that they are delicious, quick, and pretty inexpensive. J Needless to say, the ready-to-wed couple happily received them and one more positive: I even was able to save a few for me and Hubby to snack on! Rock on! (No pun intended, hehe)
