Macadamia Nut Brownies

I find it almost impossible to believe that Christmas will be here in less than a week.  At least we finally got our tree last night. You know  you’re late to the decorating party when all of the wreaths are gone, like in not a single one to be found, anywhere. On the plus side, the star I found was 70% off.

Anyway, I’m also a bit behind in my baking, so this week I’m playing catch up. I need all of my cookie, brownie, and bar baking to be finished this week, so that next week I can concentrate on candy making with  the kiddos.

Hawaiian Host Aloha Nut Brownies

I already knocked out a couple dozen  cookies today, and the easiest brownies ever.

One bowl

which is convenient considering the lovely ladies from the Pillsbury test kitchen did not come home with me

One spoon

15 minutes to get together, and 30 minutes in the oven.

I LOVE a recipe like that

Aloha Nut Brownies

Hawaiian Host Aloha Macs made one serious brownie too,

and while my kids are not fans of nuts in brownies, macadamia nuts are a different story altogether.

If you are not familiar with Hawaiian Host they are chocolate covered macadamia nuts – milk, dark, and even caramel. GREAT on their  own, but also delicious to bake with.
