2.5 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar (or Splenda)
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups coconut m&ms – (3 1.5 oz. packages)
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips (about 8 1/2 ounces)
1 cup coarsely chopped roasted salted macadamia nuts (about 4 1/2 ounces)


Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix first 3 ingredients into medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat butter in large bowl until fluffy. Add both sugars and beat until blended. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then vanilla extract. Add flour mixture and beat just until blended. Using spatula, stir in m&ms, white chocolate chips, and nuts. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Bake cookies until just golden, about 18 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.

Huge plug here for Coconut M&Ms – they are difficult to find so buy plenty when you see them. Check out the website at M&Ms – yu can even find them on eBay!
