About These White Chocolate Brownies
These white chocolate brownies are a fun twist on classic chocolate fudge brownies! Similar to the traditional version, they are tender-yet-chewy, with a sugar top that crinkles and flakes when sliced. These brownies have the sweet taste of white chocolate, which you can easily temper with tart mix-ins like dried cranberries and freeze-dried strawberries and/or raspberries, along with more umami flavors like matcha tea powder, pink peppercorn, and macadamia nuts. Access the recipe by supporting Hummingbird High on Patreon—learn more below!
Wait, are white chocolate brownies different from blondies?
Yes! Blondie bars are typically made with chocolate chip cookie dough. Instead of baking the dough as individual cookies, recipes instruct you to spread or press the dough into a baking pan to make a slab that you slice into bars. Often times, no white chocolate is used to make the dough. If white chocolate is used, it is typically used as a mix-in.
White chocolate brownies, on the other hand, are made with brownie batter. Brownie batter is typically made with a combination of melted butter, dark chocolate, and/or cocoa powder. In this white chocolate brownie recipe, I instruct you to melt butter and white chocolate together to make the brownie batter.
What does this mean in terms of flavor? A blondie will taste like a chocolate chip cookie, just in a bar format. A white chocolate brownie will taste more like white chocolate. It will have a tender-and-slightly-chewy texture similar to typical dark chocolate fudge brownies.
Why You Should Make The Recipe
Here are all the reasons to make these white chocolate brownies:
These white chocolate brownies have the texture and appearance of your favorite fudge brownie recipe, but with the rich, decadent flavor of white chocolate.
Similar to traditional chocolate brownies, these white chocolate brownies are tender, fudgy, and incredibly moist. They also have the appearance of traditional brownies, with a shiny sugar top that crinkles and flakes when sliced. The only difference? We’ve replaced the deep flavors of dark chocolate with the sweet, milky ones of white chocolate. Yum!
These white chocolate brownies come together quickly.
The white chocolate brownie batter comes together in just 15 minutes! The trickiest part about this recipe is melting the white chocolate (it tends to scorch if melted too quickly) and whipping the eggs and sugar for the batter (this is the secret to the shiny, flaky top of the brownies). But don’t worry! I’ve included plenty of tips in the recipe to help you troubleshoot any potential issues.
These white chocolate brownies can be customized easily.
When I surveyed my Patreon supporters for creative brownie recipe ideas, many of them loved the idea of white chocolate brownies. Why? White chocolate pairs with a lot of different ingredients and flavors. I’ve included lots of variations in the recipe (like white chocolate matcha brownies! white chocolate raspberry brownies! white chocolate macadamia brownies!), but you can easily add your own customizations to truly make the recipe your own.
These white chocolate brownies store well.
Because these white brownies are so fudgy and rich, they store well. I found that they were still fresh, moist, and flavorful even 3 days after making. In fact, I liked them best the day after they were baked. I found that the brownies developed in flavor overnight. The white chocolate became less sweet and intense, and took on butterscotch and malted milk flavors. Pretty cool!

NO TIME TO BAKE?!
Over the past several years of running Hummingbird High, I kept a crucial aspect of my life hidden from my readers: I had a full-time, extremely demanding job in the tech world. In my debut cookbook, Weeknight Baking, I finally reveal the secrets to baking delicious desserts on a tight schedule.
