Chocolate Macadamia Peanut Butter Chip
Recipe By : Godiva
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter -- (2 sticks) slightly softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs -- at room temperature
4 bars Godiva Dark Chocolate -- (1.5 ounces each) cut into chunks
1 cup peanut butter chips -- (6 ounces)
3/4 cup salted or unsalted macadamia nuts -- coarsely chopped*
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix together flour and baking soda. Set aside.
Beat butter in mixing bowl at medium high speed until creamy, about 1
minute, using electric mixer. Gradually add granulated and brown sugar and
beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and
eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. At low speed, add dry
ingredients in three additions, mixing just until blended. Add chocolate,
peanut butter chips and macadamia nuts and stir just until blended.
Drop dough by scant 1/4 cupfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, about 3 inches
apart. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until light brown on the edges. Transfer
to wire racks and cool completely.
*If using unsalted macadamia nuts, add 1 teaspoon salt with dry ingredients.
