I am such a sucker for white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, for reasons totally unbeknownst to me. I’m a total chocolate fan, but for some reason those chocolate-less cookies reel me in every time I get a chance to snag one!

So I thought I’d take a shot at making chocolate white chocolate macadamia nut cookies and see if they were any good– which they are, of course! The chocolate adds a little extra decadence to an already delicious cookie, and I highly recommend these!

Chocolate White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Yield: approximately 4 dozen


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp hot water
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3.75 oz chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (or chunks)
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nut cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Using a stand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time and mixing in between additions.
  4. Dissolve the baking soda in the tablespoon of water. Add both the baking soda and the vanilla to the mixer and mix well. Mix in the salt.
  5. Add the flour, cocoa powder, and pudding mix, and mix until dough forms.
  6. Mix in the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts using a wooden spoon or spatula.
  7. Chill for 30 minutes.*
  8. Scoop dough by heaping tablespoons onto a parchment lined or silicon lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are set. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.


*I usually skip out on chill time by opting to use cold butter instead of softened butter.

Don’t miss a bite!
