Hi Everyone!

I have another cookie recipe for you today! One thing I love about this time of year is cookies! I could eat and eat and eat cookies until the cows come home. Lucky for me, it’s the time of year that big sweaters and cozy clothes are in style. I need something to cover my cookie stomach that I get every year in December. Today’s cookies are a good one! Take a look!
Hawaiian Host Milk Chocolate AlohaMac Butter Cookies
These are Hawaiian Host Milk Chocolate AlohaMac Butter Cookies. They are sweet, chewy, chocolaty and simply a perfect little cookie. I baked these first thing on Sunday morning and the smell of cookies baking in the kitchen had my Husband running to the kitchen. I don’t blame him, nothing like a hot cookie fresh from the oven!  You know what I’m talking about?  That hot, gooey center with chocolate melting all over.  Oh baby, I love that about freshly baked cookies!!

I made these cookies using Hawaiian Host Milk Premium Milk Chocolate covered Macadamia Nuts. Nothing like a little tropical flair for a cold wintry day! My Husband is a fan of Hawaiian Hosts chocolates and he was just tickled pink when he saw them in the cookie batter!!!  I’m just glad I had some candies left.  Treats like this don’t last very long in our house!

I was pretty impressed with the cookies! I also like that I got over 50 cookies from the batch and they only come in at 49 calories a cookie. The recipe came from Hawaiian Host and they said to make the cookies small, so I did.  I made them about a heaping teaspoon size.  I didn’t feel so bad eating a few. Not the most nutritious breakfast, but it was so good with my coffee!
