Making this simple candy is as easy a melting a bag of white chocolate chips in the microwave and stirring in macadamia nuts, coconut, and rice cereal (I use Rice Krispies),

For extra flavor toast the macadamia nuts and the shredded coconut. This will really bring out their flavors.

You can easily toast them in a nonstick pan set over medium-low heat. Stir them frequently until fragrant and starting to turn golden.
