White Chocolate Blondies

What is the opposite of a brownie? A Blondie! These brownies are made with white chocolate so it stays true to the chocolate love affair I have with brownies.

I have seen and made Blondie recipes that don’t even call for any form of chocolate. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of making them and was terribly disappointed.

I feel extra bad about that recipe as it was on my chocolate calender last year. The part I feel bad about is that many more people probably made it too 😦

It’s the reason why I wanted to search for a perfect blondie. If you are a white chocolate lover, this recipe is for you.

Make sure to use a good quality white chocolate as the lesser quality will not incorporate with the butter properly and may be a little gritty. However, if you find that it still separates, don’t throw it out, continue to use it as it does melt down eventually.

The original recipe called for macadamia nuts, but if you are a reader of this site, you’ll know I’m not a huge fan of nuts in my baked goods, but will always let you know when the option is there 🙂

White Chocolate Blondies

Prep time: 5 minutes     Cook time: 35 minutes     Cool time: 5 minutes

Ingredients: (This recipe is by weight)

125g unsalted butter

250g white chocolate chips or chunks chopped up

4 large eggs

1 tsp salt

250g sugar

2 tsp vanilla

300g flour

250g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped (optional)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter an 8×8-inch square baking pan and cover with a strip of parchment, extending it up two sides to help lift brownies once baked. Butter the parchment.

Melt the butter and chocolate over a double boiler. While they are melting, in a large bowl, beat together the eggs and salt until light in colour and start to gain volume.

Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until thick and creamy.  Once creamy, add the cooled chocolate mixture. When it has incorporated, add the flour and nuts (optional), folding in gently.

Pour batter into pan and bake for 35 minutes of until it’s set on top and gooey in the middle.

Leave for a few minutes to cool before cutting into squares.
