Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Measure 200g butter and set aside at room temperature to soften. Weigh 30g cocoa powder. Weigh 300g basic sponge mix. Roughly chop the macadamia nuts.

TIP: Weigh out your ingredients before you start as we've sent a bit extra cocoa powder and basic sponge mix!


In a large bowl, beat the softened butter, brown sugar and vanilla-flavoured syrup with electric beaters until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until well combined, 1 minute.


To the bowl, add the measured sponge mix and cocoa powder. On low speed, beat until the dough comes together, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the macadamias until just combined.

TIP: Just beat until the dough comes together, overbeating can cause the cookies to become tough.


Roll heaped tablespoonfuls of the dough into balls. You should get 14-18 cookies. Place the balls on two lined oven trays, allowing room for spreading. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until just firm to touch. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


While the cookies are cooling, heat a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Toast the shredded coconut, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Place the white chocolate chips and vegetable oil in a separate medium heatproof bowl. Microwave in 20 second bursts, stirring each time, until smooth and melted.


Transfer the cookies to a serving plate or board. Drizzle over the white chocolate. Sprinkle with the toasted coconut to serve.
