CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE CHIP MACADAMIA NUT COOKIES: National Macadamia Nut Day

Today is National Macadamia Nut Day, and what could be more perfect that Chocolate Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies. These cookies are chewy, and since the nuts are slightly salted, you'll really taste the chocolate! I use two kinds of chocolate chips, but you also use white chocolate chips. Macadamia Nuts remind me of Hawaii, so if you want to make these cookies more 'Hawaiian", add some dried coconut to the batter, too. Yum!

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
