White Chocolate Brownies

This White Chocolate Brownie Recipe is one of my favorites. It’s perfectly chewy and soft with an amazing buttery, white chocolate flavor!

Sometimes you have one of those days where people are super annoying.

Not anyone specific.  Just humans in general.

Like, hey lady at the supermarket…it’s not my FAULT that the credit card scanner thing broke on my turn.  IT’S NOT MY CARD!  I mean, I pretty much try to pay all my bills on time.  Geez.  And you know those people who’s card actually gets declined?  And how they blame the card scanner when it doesn’t go through and get all annoyed at the cashier and excusey and mumbly about magnetic strips and wrong pin numbers?  Yeah, not me.  Not today.

So back off a little, lady, and stop being all judgy while you annoyingly shift your weight from your right foot to your left back to your right, and loudly sigh and talk to your kid about “the person in front of you who’s CARD ISN’T WORKING”, because you’re kind of dumb.


Or, hey kid at the doctor’s office who’s obviously sick… I only assume you’re sick because of the generous amounts of snot coming out of your nose and all the coughing, and the fact that you’re at a doctor’s office…maybe stay away from me?   I mean, kids are cool and all, but snotty kids who don’t share a last name with me are kinda not my thing.


And hey teenager…I know you think you’re pretty awesome right now with your atteetuuuuude and your texting all the time, but you will look back at pictures of yourself in 10 years and be like, ohmahgah I can’t believe I actually dressed and acted like that.  Trust me, I know.  I was you when I was 16.


Ok, those were all very specific.  Sorry about that.

But yeah, the human race and I aren’t besties today.  Maybe tomorrow.  Only if everyone stops being annoying.

I mean, not YOU, of course…I’m talking about everyone else.


So when people are super annoying I like to emotionally eat.  It makes me feel better for 3 seconds and then I go back to hating people.

But those 3 seconds are grand.  Especially if they involve these brownies.

Because these brownies are freaking amazing.  And please, don’t be all “annoying-person” and tell me that they’re not actually brownies because there’s no chocolate.  Yeah, no duh.

These have white chocolate and they’re brownies.

Because they’re White Chocolate Brownies.

I’m sorry.


So anyway, make these.

Really.  Go make them.  You will forgive me for being in such a jerky mood.


Melt some butter and white chocolate together…


Try to stir it up as best you can…they don’t combine completely, but give it your best shot…


Then mix up the rest of the ingredients…sugar, eggs, vanilla…and then add in your melty white chocolate…finally finish up with some flour and baking powder and salt…

Then you should add more white chips…really.

PhotobucketStir it up and spread your batter into a 9×9.


When they’re baked up they will look like this…

I mean…

PhotobucketAnd if you’re feeling like a nice guy you could even drizzle some more white chocolate over top.

I did.



White Chocolate Brownies


makes 20 brownies


  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips, divided
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Spray a 9×9 pan with baking spray
  3. In a medium saucepan combine butter and 3/4 cup white chocolate chips. Melt then together over low heat, stirring frequently to prevent from burning. When white chocolate is just melted, remove from heat and stir together with a fork or whisk, getting them incorporated as much as possible. The butter will separate from the white chocolate, so just do your best.
  4. In a mixing bowl combine sugar, eggs and vanilla, beating until smooth. Pour in the white chocolate mixture and continue beating until smooth and combined.
  5. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and stir until just incorporated.
  6. Finally add in the remaining 3/4 cup white chocolate chips.
  7. Spread in prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until set.
  8. Remove and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. Oh, there are many days where I don’t like the human race very much. Including my own kids! If I could eat these lovely treats, I might be able to let it go a little more easily.

    Where was this recipe like an hour ago? I am currently “sheltering in place” for Hurricane Issac and I can not believe I did not buy enough sweets to get me through this. Not to mention the annoying people I live with who can not leave this house for the next two days, but that’s another story. So I wanted to bake something before we lose power and I only had one cup of sugar in this house! I could have made these they look so good and my husband and son don’t like white chocolate *bonus*. So I made a half batch of brownies instead, which will not last long…and did I mention I used my last cup of sugar to make them?

    My best friend and I have “We hate everybody” days for sure!! We usually end up drinking too much wine to make up for it – – maybe we should stick to these brownies instead!! Look amazing!

  4. Oh do I feel you right now. James and I have a saying.. “This place would great, if it weren’t for all the PEOPLE.” Typically the place we’re referring to is, oh, I don’t know.. *EARTH*.

    White chocolate is one of my favorite things on said earth. Really. And now I’m thinking about how Christmassy these would be with a little peppermint extract thrown in. Too soon? 😉

  5. I hear ya…all the annoying people seem to come at me in the same day…and it’s always when I’m not in the mood to deal with it. Or maybe because of my mood, just everyone seems annoying. No clue! 🙂

    Oh, amazing brownies by the way!

  6. I was waiting for the Cheesecake Factory leftovers, the double chocolate fudge cake and the homemade salted oat chocolate chip cookies to be eaten from my kitchen before resuming my diet. Now I’ll have to add a pan of these to the mix…..

  7. Some people have no consideration. I was completely irritated for you reading about the lady at the grocery store. It would have been hard for me not to say something to her and help her realize that her negative attitude wasn’t helping anyone.

    On a positive note these brownise look absolutely fabulous and completely excuses you for being in a jerky mood!

    Hope you have a happier Tuesday! 🙂

    You had me at…melt some butter with white chocolate chips! I know, what’s up with all the grumps lately? I was just thinking the same. Even mixing these will be therapy for the soulet alone eating them!

  9. Haha – I have days like that quite often. I guess it’s why I try not to ever leave the house!!

    I’ve been totally into white chocolate lately. I was gifted some amazing white chocolate, and it brought back the love all over again. Love these!

    1. shelly

      I used vanilla bean paste instead of extract, either one will be great! I put regular vanilla in the recipe, as most people have that on-hand.

  10. I love white choc – and I have never made white choc brownies per se. I call them blondies when there’s no cocoa powder involved and have made way too many white choc blondies than I’d like to admit to but yours just look so good that I need to make them, asap!

    And credit cards that don’t work and scanner machines and people’s rush to judgment – oh I’ve been there!

  11. My kiddos LOVES white chocolate….I’m going to have to make these for him!

    I saw this print that I loved years ago. It said, “I love humanity, but hate the public.” I was working retail at the the time, so I really LOVED it!

    Can I get an AMEN sista !
    I realllllly needed these yesterday BUT today will do just fine .
    They look amazing and I am going to the store as soon as I get my butt moving.
    Makes yesterdays drama and stress sooooo worth it 🙂

    If I have to put up with humans daily, then soft & sqishsy treats are a must !

  13. These look perfect. I mean, seriously perfect. Perfectly moist, perfectly flaky on top. Perfect.

    And days where everyone annoys you? Pretty much sums up EVERY DAY of this pregnancy. Lord help my husband–and especially my mother-in-law! lol!

  14. This looks amazing…I want like 6 of these for breakfast right now!! My mom loves white chocolate and so do I!! I might make these for her the next time she comes over!
