Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup salted macadamia nuts
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups heavy cream
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast nuts on a baking sheet until pale golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

  2. Step 2

    Pulse the nuts and chocolate in a food processor until coarsely ground. Add 1/3 cup sugar; pulse until combined, about 7 times (do not overprocess; mixture should not form a paste). Set aside.

  3. Step 3

    Beat cream in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a large bowl; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Meanwhile, beat egg whites in the clean bowl of electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until soft peaks form. Add vanilla and remaining 1/3 cup sugar; beat until stiff peaks form.

  4. Step 4

    Fold egg whites into whipped cream; gently fold in nut mixture. Spoon into a glass baking dish; smooth with a rubber spatula. Press plastic wrap on surface; freeze at least 4 hours.

    I had this recipe in the "Recipes to Try" section of my recipe box for five years. I finally made it. And I've been missing out! It's so good and so easy to make. I'll be using it inside profiteroles very soon.
