White Chocolate Brownies


I've wanted to make white chocolate brownies forever and I remembered seeing them on Tartelette's blog so I went to find the recipe. Mine don't look as gorgeous as hers - and actually hers look more fudgey rather than cakey. I halved the recipe and it was perfect plus it came together really quickly.

People actually couldn't tell that this was a white chocolate brownie. Next time I'll go for a full out white chocolate brownie with white chocolate in the batter and for the chunks. Maybe earl grey white chocolate brownies?? Mmm. I just realized I posted this and forgot to mention whether I liked them! Yes of course I did. Delicious.

White Chocolate Brownies
Adapted from Tartelette

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 ounces white chocolate
2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

Prepare an 8x8 inch square pan, by lining it with parchment or buttering it.

Melt butter and 4 oz of white chocolate in top of double boiler over simmering water. When melted remove from heat and add the remaining white chocolate. Stir to blend well. Set aside. In an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar until pale and thick. Add white chocolate and butter mixture, vanilla and flour. Beat just until smooth. Add chocolate chunks and mix in by hand, being careful not to overmix.

Pour into prepared pan and bake 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Cut into squares or bars.

They sound phenomenal! I can see where they might be more cakey than fudgy, but with white chocolate, it's all good :) (and I love the earl grey idea!).

I'm not much for white chocolate, but I have to say the idea of a white chocolate brownie (when one can find good vegan white chocolate) is intriguing. Your's look nummy.

Another dessert I'll have to try. I love white chocolate.

Grace said...

of course you liked them--i never doubted it for a second. a person would have to screw up pretty badly to mess up white chocolate anything. :)

I love white chocolate and I love the idea of it in a brownie instead of a regular chocolate or blondie recipe!
