am looking at a recipe for Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies. Can I chop the bar and use it in the cookies instead of choc. chips or is that not a good idea? If it would work, do you have any tips for chopping the bar? Are chips compltely different from the bar? Any recipes that might work better? Thanks for any help. Here's the recipe, if it matters.

Chocolate Chip-Macadamia Nut Cookies

Categories : Dessert Nuts

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/4 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt (1/2 tsp if using unsalted nuts)
1 cup (2 sticks)unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup (firmly packed)dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts

1. Preheat oven to 300F.

2. Lightly grease large baking sheets.

3. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; in another bowl, mix
butter and sugars. With mixer at high speed, beat butter mixture until
blended and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each
addition. Beat in vanilla. Gradually stir in flour mixture. Stir in
chocolate and nuts.

4. Roll 2 tablespoons dough into ball; place on baking sheet; repeat with
remaining dough, spacing balls 2 inches apart. Flatten balls slightly; bake
20 to 25 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.

5. Cool cookies on baking sheets on racks 5 minutes; with spatula, remove
cookies to racks. Cool completely.

Comments: My mom and I are total chocolate freaks, and we're really fussy
about the kind we eat. These cookies are our all-time favorites. My brother
makes fun of us for being so picky. He just doesn't understand really,
really loving chocolate.
