When it comes to sweet treats, I’m a huge fan of nuts covered in chocolate. Add salted caramel to the mix and it’s a sure bet I’ll be smitten. So, when I was invited to Aubrey of Real Housemoms virtual birthday party, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

If you haven’t met Aubrey, she’s a talented, fun-loving gal. And she’s a totally awesome mom! She’s a smart businesswoman who goes after what she wants, but, more importantly, she’s an incredibly sweet and encouraging friend who always has an uplifting word to share!

Several of her blog contributors have gotten together to celebrate the awesomeness that is Aubrey by having a surprise party for her. Please be sure to check out all the other amazing recipes!

Now, I’ve had my share of baking fails, so I wanted to insure these macadamia bites would come out right the first time. With just a couple of store-bought items and a few simple steps, you will have the best tasting little desserts on your hands. But not for long, because they will be devoured in no time.

Starting with puff pastry, I unrolled each sheet on a lightly floured surface. I cut the sheet into three pieces, using the folds as a guide. Then I cut the sheet into three more sections, the opposite direction, to make 9 squares total.

I purchased some macadamia nuts covered in chocolate and caramel and a local store, and set one upside down in the middle of each square of puff pastry. To make the pocket, I brought up two opposite ends and joined them together. Then I did the same with the other ends.

Pinching the corners together to make sure the chocolate wouldn’t oose out, I turned the right side up on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. All they needed was about 15 minutes to bake and they were ready for a sprinkling of sparkling decorative sugar.
