Even though he's not a chocolate fan, my husband likes these brownies. I fix them for family, company and potlucks. Loaded with macadamia nuts, these chunky, bite-size treats never fail to catch attention on a buffet table. If you prefer, replace the macadamia nuts with pecans. —Bernice Muilenburg, Molalla, Oregon


  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 4-2/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 4 large eggs
  • 5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped macadamia nuts or pecans, divided


  1. In a large saucepan, melt butter with sugar over medium heat. Remove from the heat; stir in 2 cups chocolate chips until melted.
  2. Pour into a large bowl; beat in water. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; beat into the chocolate mixture until blended. Stir in 2 cups chocolate chips and 1 cup nuts.
  3. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining chips and nuts. Bake at 325° for 55 minutes or until the center is set (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack.
