Cookie Spotlight: White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Cheesecake Bars

Tired of offering regular cheesecake treats? Why not transform your extra white choc cookies into bite-sized cheesy bars? 

To make this dessert, start by mashing your cookies until crumbly, and spread them evenly onto the bottom of your pan. 

Mix your cheesecake filling ingredients, such as cream cheese, sugar, eggs, lemon juice or vanilla extract, and spread evenly over the cookie layer. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. 

After baking, allow the cake to cool before cutting it into individual bars and drizzling it with melted white chocolate and chopped nuts. Don’t be afraid to get creative with this recipe. Have fun experimenting with different ingredients until you find your perfect dessert.

Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you’re looking for a cold and refreshing dessert to include in your summer menu, these cookie ice cream sandwiches are perfect for you. These sweet treats are delicious and easy to make. You only need a packet of white chocolate macadamia cookies and a bucket of ice cream of whatever flavour you think your customers will love. 

Soften your ice cream and use a spatula to spread a thick layer between two cookies. Place them into the refrigerator for about an hour to retain the shape of the sandwich. 

Once frozen, you can start decorating. Roll the edges in sprinkles or dust with some ground cookie bits. Make sure to return your sandwich to the freezer to fully set before you serve them to your customers. This should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

White Choc Brownies

Making brownies with freshly baked white chocolate macadamia cookies is an easy way to add a nutty flavour to your treats. 

Begin by preheating your oven and crumbling the cookies in a bowl. Then, mix them into the standard brownie mix ingredients such as flour, baking powder, butter, cocoa powder, and eggs. 

Once combined, pour the mixture into a greased baking pan of your desired size. Add toppings like mini marshmallows, shredded coconut or cream cheese frosting. With the sweet mix of white chocolate macadamia flavour combined into classic brownies, your customers will be surprised when they have their first bite.

White Chocolate and Macadamia Blondies

If you have extra white chocolate macadamia cookies, you can repurpose them into a decadent dessert by making delicious blondies.

To get started, preheat your oven to 350°F and line your baking dish with parchment paper. Crumble your white chocolate macadamia cookies and add them to the dry ingredients, such as brown sugar, flour, and baking powder. Afterwards, add melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract, and stir until the ingredients are mixed well. Pour this mixture into a greased pan before sprinkling extra macadamia nuts over the top.

These fudgy treats are best paired with almost all beverages on your menu, including tea, coffee and milkshakes.

Chocolatey Cookie Pudding

Want to put a twist on your traditional pudding? Try using white chocolate macadamia cookies as the base of your dessert. 

The cookies are packed with flavour and delicious ingredients, making them the perfect foundation for a rich and indulgent pudding. Unlike traditional white bread or sponge cake, they also add a fun textural contrast to the classic dessert.

Crumble the cookies into small pieces. Once done, pour sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg over the cookies. Combine the eggs and cream in a separate bowl, then fold the cookie pieces until everything is combined evenly. 

Before adding the pudding mixture, don’t forget to grease your baking dish with butter or margarine. When done and cooled, you can serve slices to your customers with extra cream or vanilla sauce on top.
