Niky @ The House on Silverado
These thick, chewy bars are the perfect combo of sweet & salty, because of the mixture of dried apricots, white chocolate, and macadamia nuts.

  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts chopped
  • ½ cup dried apricots chopped
  • cup white chocolate chips
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • tsp baking powder
  • 3 TBSP whole milk


  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Add the sugar and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the egg, beating well.
  • Add the chopped nuts, apricot pieces, and white chocolate chips, mixing until incorporated.
  • Sift in the flour and baking powder. Add the salt and mix until stiff and well-combined. If the mixture seems too dry, add the milk, one tablespoon at a time, until a thick batter is achieved.
  • Transfer the mixture to a square baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray and lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until lighten golden brown in color and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few moist crumbs. The center should still be soft.
  • Cool in pan for a few minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Cut into 9 large bars or 18 smaller.
  • Store for several days in an airtight container.
