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.




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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

    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 !

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

      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.

  6. 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!

  7. Evie McGrew

    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!

  8. 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! 🙂

  9. 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…..

  10. 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!

  11. 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? 😉

    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!

    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?

  14. 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.

  15. Ohmigosh, it drives me insane when people get all nasty with the cashier when their cards decline. Umm, hello! Your card is declining because you have insufficient funds. There’s been a few times my card declined and I just wanted the ground to open up and swallow me. Embarassing mucho?

    But at the end of the day, you’re better off standing proud to not reacting. Or, making these brownies and sitting there in the corner scoffing them while cursing under you breath. All that melted while chocolate has me drooling.

  16. Hmm maybe this explains why I tend to feel compelled to eat tons and tons of chocolate after I go grocery shopping…it’s because of all the people there who have irritated me to the point of no return! I feel so much better about that now. White chocolate is totally chocolate by the way. In my world at least!

  17. i would’ve turned right around to that lady and threw a pack of gum at her and been like SHUT UP. god, i hate people like that. they’re just life/mood ruiners. whatever. at least you got to eat these amazing looking brownies. they definitely should make your day better!! sounds so good 🙂

  18. I think we all have these terrible no good days…but brownies (yes, they ARE brownies in my mind) this good are sure to help you ignore the crazy people we come across! And more white chocolate drizzled on top…yes please!!!

    Yesterday at Staples some obnoxious teenager was yelling to her friends about how she needed a BINDER. She was walking WITH her friends and bumped my little girl out of the way. Seriously?
    I looked at my 12 year old son and said, “You bring home a girl like that….and I will HATE HER!”

    Telling him that brought a smile to my face…
    and so do these brownies.

  20. These even look better than regular chocolate brownies. Now that is saying something!

    I recently found a picture of me when I was 15 years old and I was wearing a sequence tube top. HOW was I allowed out of the house with this? WHY was that “top” even ever bought?????

  21. wanda

    I love this recipe!!! I made this for my kids the other day and their reaction was priceless. This reminded me of something called a Brigadeiro. TIt drew back memories!!! Check their website out and give it a try. http://www.brigadeiropalace.com. If anyone here has tried it share the experience!!

  22. To say that these things were orgasmic does not do them justice! I had originally planned on making them for my daughter’s Fall Festival, but after I sampled them (for quality control purposes), I wound up keeping the brownies and making a batch of M&M chocolate cookies for the kids. *bad mommy*

    The only thing I will suggest is that you DO NOT use a silicone pan. The crispy top broke into all kind of pieces when I was trying to get them out of the oven. Maybe if I would have set it on a cookie sheet they would have survived, but we all know that we can’t send ugly, cracked brownies to school. Looks like I have to eat them all myself.

    Thanks so much for posting! They are freaking great.

    I made these for Thanksgiving and THEY ARE THE DEFINITION OF DECADENCE. If you are a white chocolate addict like myself, you will ADORE these. So, so rich and fabulous. I substituted Merckens white chocolate coating for the melty part and used regular white chocolate chips for the ones you just stir in. I also doubled the recipe and put it in a 9×13 pan and it took forever to bake and I wasn’t sure they were done, but after they cooled I stuck them in the fridge overnight and the center that had looked a little iffy was total gooey deliciousness. Try these. They are amazeballs.

  24. Sophia

    That looks amazing and i really want to bake these but did you use vanilla powder or vanilla extract? please let me know! thank you for the amazing recipe. 🙂

  25. Rieneke

    Just made these and guess what… I got impatient and tried to get the brownie out of the pan before it was completely cooled …and don’t ask me how I did it, but it fell out onto the floor 🙁
    Guess I needed a lesson in patience as I will now have to start all over again, but this time I will wait until they are completely cooled off !

  26. Taylor

    Ok, yeah, those days drive me INSANE. That snotty kid at the doctor is an exact replica of why children should stay away from others when they’re SICK. Shouldn’t it strike them that if their suffering from this disease they should consider not making others sick? So yeah…back to those delicious brownies. The scrumptious white chocolate made EVERYTHING better. The second I read this, I grabbed my mixer, put on my apron and set the oven to 350?. So I owe you my thanks!!

  27. Prerna Gupta

    These brownies look fantastic… and I really want to bake them but i am not a pro at baking…. so this might come as a very stupid question but can you please tell me what kind of vanilla do i use?? As in vanilla essence or vanilla extract or something else all together…

    Please reply soon…

  28. Tamara

    This recipe looked awesome so I had to try it for making rainbow white chocolate brownies! With no brown sugar the batter is nice and white colored! Perfect for making rainbows! Can’t wait for them to be done baking!!! Thanks so much!

  29. RR

    Not a fan of white chocolate, but had some that I wanted to use up. Made these and although sweet, pretty delicious. A “keep on file” recipe for sure!

  30. Julie Schultz

    I have a child allergic to chocolate so I’ll be making these for him. He was frustrated that he couldn’t have the reese’s peanut butter brownies so I have to make him a white chocolate treat. If these work out, I can still make them with white chocolate reeses instead of using white choc. chips.

  31. Jane Higgins

    These look amazing, cant wait to make them! Just wondering, would milk choc chunks work instead of putting more whole white choc into the batter? 🙂

  32. Grace

    Hey! I wanted to make this for my theatre troupe tomorrow because they sound heavenly! But i dont have baking powder 🙁 is it extremely necessary?

  33. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your site.
    It looks like some of the text within your content are running off the screen.
    Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?

    This might be a problem with my web browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

    So mine came out more like a cake. Maybe to small of a pan? Just took it out of the oven. Not to sure if it’s a fail on my part. Ice it and call it a cake? Any suggestions? The outer layer feels cake like but just and inch out the entire middle has that nice brownie like topping. (Obviously a beginner baker)
