    Oh, oh, so very good! Found these on the Ghirardelli chocolate site. Once the dough is made, it must be refrigerated 1 hour.

      I have to laugh because, of all the recipes we have here, a LOT of the chocolate and nut recipes haven't been tried at all. I would think they would be one of the most popular choices when making cookies, desserts etc. Oh well, anyway, these cookies are unbelievably good!!! They will be on my cookie trays this year. I made the macadamias this time but will use other nuts in the future too, as I think cashews, pistachios and walnuts would be great choices also!
