  • 1 3/4 cup vanilla wafer crumbs
  • 1 1/2 cups macadamia nuts, roasted, salted, finely chopped, and divided
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels


Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line a 13 by 9-inch baking pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil, letting the edges of the foil extend over the sides of the pan.


For the crust: In a small bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, 3/4 cup nuts, brown sugar, and butter. Press evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.


For the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar at medium speed with a mixer until creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the sour cream. Pour over the crust. Sprinkle with chocolate morsels. Bake until set, 40 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 cup nuts. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars to serve. Store in the refrigerator.
