Brownies just happen to be my husband’s favorite dessert of all time – all brownies, any brownies, and especially my Macadamia Nut Brownies.
These rich chocolate brownies aren’t too sweet so the powdered sugar frosting adds just the right amount of sweetness.
My husband likes to add a big scoop (or 2) of vanilla ice cream to his warm brownies. When he’s around the brownies never have time to cool completely.
The ice cream begins to melt as soon as it hits that hot brownie and creates an explosion of flavor when you bite into it. It’s hard to say no to a second helping!
I’m crazy about the macadamia nuts, especially in brownies. I’m nuts for nuts – all nuts and Macadamia nuts are a huge favorite. And I don’t think a brownie should ever be left naked.
The creamy white frosting is the crowning jewel on these babies and adds a beautiful contrast to the dark chocolate.

Helpful Hint: When you’re ready to cut the brownies, use the ends of the foil to lift them out of the pan, remove foil, and place them on a pretty tray. Cutting the brownies is much easier this way (this coming from a person that can not cut a straight line at all).
When I’m don’t have macadamia nuts, I make these brownies with chopped pecans.
