It's useless to resist - Double Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ...

... "It's useless to resist." ...

... "I am your father!" ...

... "No, no, that's not true. That's impossible!"


Let's start over: A few weeks ago in a small, normal kitchen ... It's useless to resist. No, not the dark side. No, rather the dark chocolate of those Double Chocolate Macadamia Cookies. I'm your cookie. Yes, it is true, it is possible. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

Just have a look at the list of ingredients first and you will see ...

Ingredients (get them and join):
200 g icing sugar
200 g butter
25 g cocoa powder
60 g macadamia nuts, chopped up
300 g flour
100 g dark chocolate, broken or cut into chunks

Method (no tricks, no nonsense):
Carefully melt the butter in a large saucepan. Then take it from the heat and stir in the sugar and the cocoa powder.
Add the macadamia nuts and incorporate them as well.
It's time for the flour then. Sift it in if you like or ... just go for it.
Finally give in to your feelings and use the chocolate chunk to make the cookie dough complete.
Did I say finally? Well, must have been for the cookie dough. 
Almost there! 
We only need to put small pieces of the dough on baking trays that have baking parchment on them and then put the whole lots of them into the oven for 15 minutes at 180 °C.
After a bit of cooling down ... for the cookies ... but if preparing them was too much hard work for you, you might cool down as well.
Said and done! Now it's useless to resist those lovely Double Chocolate Macadamia Cookies.

On the other hand you might reconsider your strategy. While Wookies might pull out the arms of innocent droids when they loose, you might let the cookies win anyway, but they might change something in connection with your body, if you eat them all at once on your own ... Don't ask!

Well, as far as I can see it, it's May the 4th. Does this have anything to do with Star Wars? Or with cookies? 

Don't have a bad feeling about this. Remember, if you go and make those cookies now, the 4th will be with you ... always!

Alternatively, you can put the cookies into your cookie jar and eat responsible. Well, this month's Tea Time Treats from Lavender and Lovage and What Kate Baked is about that Eh, not necessarily about eating responsibly - we are doing that anyway ... most of the time - but the theme is rather: The Biscuit Tin and Cookie Jar! Biscuits and Cookies. So for sure you find also some alternatives as to cookies at Lavender and Lovage, who is hosting Tea Time Treats this very month.

So ... have a look around and join forces for that ...


  1. I'm all for the dark side if it means Chocolate Chris. I have to imagine how good these are though, because your picture isn't showing.

    1. So far I haven't come up with an idea to photograph cookies in a nice way.

  2. I can see it ok? Look very tempting to me - just not that healthy....

  3. A FABULOUS and FUNNY post as always Chris - I DO love your writing and this recipe is also GORGEOUS too! Thanks for entering into Tea Time Treats - Karen
