Chocolate Cover Macadamia Nuts

This is a great recipe that I found out there on the recipe blogs (I can't remember which one though! I feel bad.) It is the mix of chocolates that makes these chocolate covered nuts so good. Other nuts like peanuts and almonds would also be great. I used Ghiradeli chocolate chips because good quality chocolate really makes a difference when chocolate plays such a major role.

Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts

1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
3 cups macadamia nuts or other nuts

Combine all chips in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on 60% power for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for another minute on 60% power. Stir gently until chocolate chips mix completely and are melted. You may need to put the chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds - 1 minute on 60% power.

Mix in nuts and stir to coat well. With a spoon drop small clusters onto wax paper and allow to cool completely. Store airtight.

Jenni, thesse looks awesome! I love Macadamian nuts. Have you ever had a Madamia Bear Claw at Rocky Mt. Chocolate Factory? These look pretty similar. I'll have to give them a try!
