White Chocolate and Macadamia Slice
I very rarely plan what I am going to bake too far in advance. Generally I flick through some recipe's, or knowing what I have in the pantry I brainstorm about what I can create and then hunt around to see if I have a recipe using those exact random ingredients.
The other day was one of those days - flick, flick flicking through a few recipe books. Will i make ricotta and lime syryp cake - nope, no ricotta. Will I make almond carrot cake - nope needed 5 eggs and i didn't have 5 eggs. Then I found this one, do I have enough white chocolate, yes, and macadamia's - two packets in fact!....bingo!
White Chocolate and Macadamia Slice - Perfect!
125grams butter, chopped coarsely
180grams white eating chocolate, chopped coarsely
1/2 cup caster sugar

It was so yummy and irrestible that I quickly dropped some in a friends letterbox and some to a friend who has just recently had a baby so I didn't eat it all!
