  • 1 ¼ cups Shredded sweetened coconut, divided
  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • ½ tsp. Table salt
  • 1 ½ Sticks unsalted butter, softened (12 Tbsp.)
  • 1 ½ cups Packed brown sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1 Jar dry-roasted macadamia nuts, chopped (3 oz.), divided
  • 1 cup Chopped white bar chocolate, divided


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over sides of pan in both directions to make “handles.” Coat foil with butter and flour.
  • Spread ½ cup coconut on a baking sheet and bake until golden, stirring occasionally, 8–12 minutes.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cream butter and brown sugar in a separate bowl with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; blend until light in color, 1–2 minutes.
  • Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and blend just until combined.
  • Stir in ¼ cup macadamia nuts, ½ cup white chocolate, and toasted coconut; spread into prepared pan. Top batter with remaining ¾ cup coconut and remaining nuts. Bake blondies until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Let blondies cool completely in pan.
  • Melt remaining ½ cup white chocolate in the microwave in a resealable plastic bag, about 1 minute. Cut tip off one corner of bag; drizzle white chocolate over bars. Once chocolate has set, remove blondies from pan, discard foil, and cut into 24 bars.
