Recipe: Bite-Sized White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cups

I know I was supposed to stay away from baking anything chocolate but mummy has been missing this since the first time I made it for her last year and she requested for it so I cant possibly say no to mummy right? And this ‘cake-cup’ is everything mummy likes- white chocolate and macadamia nuts. We have such similar tastes in our choices of indulgent foods, it’s actually scary. Exactly as the saying goes- like mother like daughter!

I tried a new recipe this time because I didnt want it to be as sweet as it was when I first made the original White Chocolate Macadamia Blondies which were a little too decadent and heavy. So I mixed things up a little and used less flour and less sugar this time.

Melting white chocolate is a little different from melting regular dark chocolate so do watch your flame carefully, keep stirring constantly and make sure it is on low heat at all times! Also important to let the chocolate cool for about 5min before mixing in the sugar and the eggs but not too long or the chocolate will start to harden up and it will be difficult to work with.
