White chocolate macadamia nuts, what do you think? Have you ever tried macadamia nuts bathed in beautiful chocolate?
Well, let me share this information with you. Because this is AMAZING!
So, I am trying to distract myself waiting for Peanut’s liver enzymes results. I had a call from the vet, and they went up. Mommy and daddy fret every three months waiting for the results.
Now as I am worrying, I remember we have a bag of macadamia nuts in the freezer. Let’s roll these in some delicious chocolate I decide.
But the vet said he’s not concerned with the elevation; however, he wants to put her on a new supplement.
Okay, try and stay calm and keep this in perspective, right? Well, I am a fretter, and I am not one who stays calm especially when it calms to my babies. That’s John’s job, he is the calm one in this relationship. Thank goodness for the fact he is calm. He says he’ll worry when they say worry.
Oh, how I love this man so much!
Now back to the white chocolate covered macadamia nuts. This is so simple and let me tell you worth every second of waiting for the chocolate to melt.
Mauna Loa are the best macadamia nuts; however, I can’t seem to find these in NJ anymore.
This will be added to my list of items I always buy at Walmart!
Melting the Chocolate to Cover the Nuts
First, when melting white chocolate, it can be a bit fussier then melting regular chocolate.
Why? Because white chocolate has a lower melting point. This means white chocolate melts faster than milk or dark chocolate. You must keep an eye on it to prevent scorching if using a double boiler.
When melting chocolate, I immediately, reach for my Wilton Chocolate Melter for this chocolate covered macadamia treat.
By the way, when I began baking and melting chocolate, I did learn a trick from Debbie Fields. Yes Debbie Fields. Come on you didn’t know we are great friends?
Of course not, but it sounded good. She always advises if you didn’t have melting chocolate wafers to add a bit of ready, vegetable oil to chocolate chips.
This tip has worked like a charm for years. Also, it helps because I don’t temper my chocolate. So, the vegetable oil adds a sheen to the chocolate too. Also, because I don’t temper the chocolate it prevents it from melting too quickly once it’s set and ready to enjoy.

Adding the Ingredients to the Chocolate
As a result of trial and error I add the coated goodies to nonstick foil on a plate or cutting board to setup. Again, works like a charm every time.
Here, add the macadamia nuts to the white chocolate and coat well.
Now pour them on the sheet of nonstick foil and smooth. Next, to add a quick and pretty touch I add some sprinkles. Let them set up.
Now when I broke this apart this is almost the consistency of a chocolate macadamia candy bar!
Break apart into clusters and enjoy.
Incidentally, this is so quick it is perfect as a last-minute Valentines treat.
These look pretty on teacup saucers and make the covered nuts extra special.
I am thinking I may make these for everyone to take home with them for Easter.
Plus get creative, use a combination of nuts. How about walnuts and pecans. Add raw almonds to the chocolate. When you think about it almonds are good for you so there’s less guilt factor.
I bet chopping pretzels into small pieces and adding them in with the nuts would be delicious. In fact, that’s what I may create for Easter. You’ll have to stay tuned to your inbox, so you don’t miss this treat!
I hope you enjoyed this quick post on white chocolate covered macadamia nuts! Let me know if you think you will give this super-fast idea a try. I love to know.
