White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Muffins

If you love white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, you are going to LOVE these muffins!

1 3/4 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup vanilla chips
3/4 cup macadamia nuts

1/2 cup vanilla chips
2 T heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg, milk and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the chips and nuts. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. For glaze, in a small microwave-safe bowl, melt chips with cream; stir until smooth. Drizzle over warm muffins.
