The original recipe had a footnote stating that cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, or almonds could be used in place of the macadamia nuts; or that the nuts could be omitted and semisweet, milk, or white chocolate chips, or peanut butter, or butterscotch chips could be added. SIGH...what a delicious mouthful!
