READY IN: 35mins


  • Base
  • 4
    ounces macadamia nuts (115g)
  • 10
    ounces flour (280g)
  • 6
    ounces brown sugar (175g)
  • 4
    ounces butter (115g)
  • Topping
  • 4
    ounces butter (115g)
  • 3 12
    ounces brown sugar (100g)
  • 7
    ounces milk chocolate chips (200g)


  • Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  • Coarsely chop the macadamia nuts. To make the base, beat together the flour, sugar, and butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 30x20 cm/12x8" rectangular baking tin. Sprinkle the macadamia nuts over top.
  • To make the topping, put the butter and sugar in a saucepan, and stirring constantly, slowly bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly, then carefully pour the mixture over the macadamia nuts.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, until the caramel topping is bubbling. Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top. Leave for 2-3 minutes, until the chocolate begins to melt, then using a fork or knife, swirl the chocolate over the top. Leave to cool in the tin, then cut into squares.
