I've made these every year for the past 5 years and they've been a hit every year! My changes are that I use roasted, slivered almonds instead of macadamia nuts, omitted the peel, and used white chocolate chips instead of chopping up baking chocolate.

This is a fairly easy recipe to make, and they are delicious! I substituted slivered almonds for the macadamia nuts.
