White Chocolate Blond Brownies

White Chocolate Blond Brownies

I think after you try these blond brownies they’ll be your new favorite.  They’re ours, for sure.

I thought I had the perfect blond brownie with this recipe that I posted last year.  But then I tried this one!  I’ve made it twice in the past month and it doesn’t hang around for long.  Every time someone walks through the kitchen they just have to take another “small” bite until before we know it there isn’t another bite to take. It’s as easy to mix up as brownies and they bake up to a perfectly chewy, buttery, nutty, delicious dessert.

Eaten plain they’re beyond tasty, but topped with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sauce, and toasted coconut they’re delectable.

Try them and then let me know if you think they’re as delicious as we all do.

White Chocolate Blond Brownies

Yield: 9x13-inch pan of brownies

White Chocolate Blond Brownies

Ingredients

  • 9 ounces white chocolate chips, divided
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat the over to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.
  2. Place 6 ounces of the white chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave and melt the chips at 50% power, one minute at a time, stirring between each minute, until they are melted.
  3. Stir in the brown sugar and white sugar and mix well.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  6. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing just briefly.
  7. Add 1 cup of the chopped pecans and the remaining white chocolate chips and stir until the batter is combined.
  8. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared baking dish.
  9. Sprinkle the remaining pecans over the top.
  10. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the brownies are lightly golden brown and the sides are set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with just a few sticky crumbs.
  11. Let the bars cool completely in the dish.

Hearty Sausage and Egg Skillet Breakfast

A few weeks ago I was trying to come up with a hearty, tasty breakfast idea that would make a large amount and keep well in the refrigerator so we could just scoop out a bowlful and heat it up for a quick, nutritious, substantial meal to start our day.  I had made breakfast burritos […]

Slow Cooker Creamy Ranch Chicken

For some reason I haven’t fully embraced slow cooker cooking. I like the idea of putting the ingredients in the cooker early in the day, not needing to think about it again until the dinner hour is near, and smelling the good fragrances all afternoon. But I still prefer stove-top or oven cooking to the […]
