 Chunky Blond Brownies
Every bite of these chewy brownies is packed with chunks of white and semisweet chocolate and macadamia nuts. We have lots of excellent cooks in this rural community, so it's a challenge coming up with a potluck offering that stands out. These usually do - and they're snapped up fast. -Rosemary Dreiske, Lemmon, South Dakota
