I made these for the superbowl party. They are great!! Not too sweet. I used instant coffee ( I don't know what espresso powder is). I made them small and got 60 cookies. The bigger ones got real flat, i liked the smaller fatter ones. The last part of the batch I added dried canberries. Very good. I think next time I make them I will try hazelnuts. Oh and did I mention that I do not bake. I usually use cake/cookie mixes. These were very good and very easy. Read More

These cookies are ok. It's hard to really taste the chocolate and I even added some chocolate chips. I also added a little extra flour to prevent really flat cookies. I was surprised to find a cookie recipe like this with wheat flour. Maybe they would be better with walnuts or almonds and maybe some butterscotch chips. I think that macadamias taste a bit like crayons. Read More

Great cakey chewey texture. The macadamia nuts lend a good salty crunch. I used a bit more espresso powder (1.5 Tablespoons) but that's because I really like the taste of espresso. I cooked them only about 10 minutes which was perfect. I will make these again. Read More

These were good maybe not 'super'... they reminded me of the brownies that I make and the brownies are easier (not that these were difficult!). The first batch I baked for 12 minutes and they were okay second batch I did 10 minutes and they were much better! Also I used hazelnuts instead of macadamia. The flavour really goes well with the instant coffee. I got 26 good sized cookies. Next time I will chill the dough for a bit before making the cookies. Read More

Made these today but I used chopped pecans. I couldn't find any macadamia nuts in any of our stores here. I forgot to melt the chocolate so I added 1 cup of choc chips and tbsp of cocoa. I also increased the sugar to 1 cup brown and 1/2 cup white. First batch needed 11 minutes to bake ( I think I made them too big.) I just had one and all I say is...OMG. Hubby just asked for another!

These cookies are very good! I didn’t have any baking chocolate squares so I substituted a half cup of baking chocolate powder and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. I added it into my melted butter. I also added peanut butter chips because my family members are all fans of peanut butter and chocolate together. I didn’t have an espresso powder, but I image that would be good, also. Read More
