White Chocolate and Macadamia nut Brownies

I don’t make brownies very often, and when I do, I wonder why don’t I???? If you are in the need for a chocolate fix, (which I regularly am) then I find a chocolate brownie hits the spot and relieves that chocolate itch!!!!.

I particularly like these brownies with the addition of the macadamia nuts ( but really you could use any nuts you like), I like the crunch it adds to the soft texture of the brownie, and well as for the white chocolate, the more chocolate the better I think 🙂 plus white chocolate and macadamia nuts are a perfect match.
