White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Bread


Who doesn’t love White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies?  You know those cookies that are so delicious that when a plate of freshly baked cookies are sitting in front of you, you can’t help to grab more than one (even if you try to resist).  I love White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies but I don’t bake them often so when I was day dreaming about these chewy and delicious cookies one day I thought to myself why not try doing it a little different and baking it as a bread (since we know I have had my share of bread recipes lately).  

This is a simple and delicious bread and the white chocolate drizzled on top, oh my!  

If you are fan of White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies,  you need to try this!

Enjoy!
