Milk Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Brownies

It’s funny how 2 people, who have been together for 10 years, can have two very different opinions on brownies! I love gooey chocolate brownies of all varieties, and my fiance hates them (don’t worry, I don’t understand it either). He loves chocolate and he likes chocolate cake and chocolate ice cream, but he seriously dislikes brownies. With this in mind, and seeing as our anniversary weekend is coming up, I decided to make 2 desserts, the first being these gloriously cakey milk chocolate & macadamia nut brownies (the brownies are for me and the 2nd dessert will be for my fiance)!

If you love a good cake-like brownie and you love milk chocolate, then this is the recipe for you. They’re not too sweet and are studded with pops of salty macadamia nuts (you can use whatever nuts you like). They’re also so quick and easy to make. Bonus!
