Are they blondies or just white chocolate brownies? But a blondie is supposed to be the opposite of a brownie, so are these “proper” blondies as they contain white chocolate and all the other blondies I’ve been making aren’t actually blondies? Gah, I don’t know!
Anyway, hello folks…
The above questions are the ones I’ve been asking myself since I made these. Which proved to be a problem when naming this post. Do I call them White Chocolate Brownies? Do I call them “Official Blondies”? See, there I go again! Okay, I’ll stop. I finally decided to call them White Chocolate Blondies to avoid any confusion for you and me.
These bars are a soft, slightly chewy, vanilla blondie with a subtle – but not too subtle – white chocolate flavour. Just what the opposite of a brownie should be!
The method is very similar to that of some brownies. You melt the chocolate and butter together and while that’s melting, you beat the egg, sugar and vanilla together until the mixture is fluffy. This gives the blondies a lovely light and airy texture. You then mix in the chocolate mixture and the flour and that’s it! They turn out soft, light and slightly dense which is exactly how a blondie should be.
This is such a simple recipe, but perfect if you love white chocolate and want
