White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Bars

Cranberries. White Chocolate. Macadamia nuts. Three things I love in one delicious bar cookie, and let me tell you,  it’s a heavenly combination. These festive bars have melted white chocolate mixed right into the batter! And cranberries and macadamia nuts were meant to be together. Even better, these bars are so easy to make, and that’s important at a time of the year when things can get kind of hectic. These are one of those treats I had to hide from myself, because I just couldn’t stop eating them! And I may have had them for breakfast once or twice. If you love easy and delicious, you’re going to want to make these White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Bars as soon as possible!

Comments

  1. Mine didn’t come even close to this. Mine look like cookie bars not nice and white and thick like these. Followed the recipe exactly. I even went back to the original on Better home and Gardens site. no picture.
