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
  • 1½ cups white chocolate chips, divided
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Spray a 9x9 pan with baking spray
  3. In a medium saucepan combine butter and ¾ 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 ¾ 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.

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!

Rachel Cooks

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!

Colleen @ What

Heavenly. Simply heavenly. I’ll have to make these for my sister – she’s the biggest fan of white chocolate I know!!

Brian @ A Thought For Food

Wow… these look darn good. And I’m not even normally a white chocolate fan. I think that these would probably change that.


Brownies fix everything! Almost everything, that is.

Sue @ Cakeballs, cookies and more

LOL some days everyone annoys me, but treats make it better.

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 !

bridget {bake at 350}

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!

Averie @ Averie Cooks

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!

Cookbook Queen

I have got to try these!! I love white chocolate and these look like one of the best things ever 🙂


did you you vanilla bean paste or scrape a vanilla bean into your batter? Looks like little specks of deliciousness…

The Brunette Baker

Haha….LOVED your post! LOL’ed through the whole thing. The brownies look AMAZING! XO

Rachel @ Baked by Rachel

I’m cracking up because you know everyone feels exactly like you do about those specific three people lol.

Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray

Your jerky mood is everything I want to say to dumb people in the universe on a daily basis. So, uhhh, thank you? 😉


Tienen una pinta riquisima.
Un beso.


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!

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!


These look like the perfect sweets to take your mind off stressful things in life, like annoying people. There’s a lot of those kinds of people these days, huh?
Anways…love this post. Love your rant. Love this recipe!


Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel

Where have these been all my life?! Definitely the best albino brownies I’ve ever seen 🙂 Also, annoying people–ugh. They need their own continent where they can all bug one another and say ridiculously stupid things to each other.

Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies

Ha! I’m a little bit of an emotional eater too. I eat when I’m happy, I eat when I’m sad, I eat when I’m angry. Um, yeah. But anyway, these look perfect for the kind of day you were having. Or any day. Yum!

Rachel @ My Naturally Frugal Family

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! 🙂


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…..


“ohmahgawd they are not brown you can’t call them brownies.” tell those people to shove it. you obviously make the rules around here.

Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes

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!

Amber | Bluebonnets & Brownies

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? 😉

Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

White chocolate brownies have been in my brain for awhile now! I wasn’t sure it would work like a regular brownie recipe though. Glad I have your recipe to use!

Jane K

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!

Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts

Hate days like that, hope your day gets better!
These brownies are amazing though – love the extra white chocolate drizzle!


I love that white chocolate drizzled over the top!

Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings

People are getting on my nerves today too…we just need another white chocolate brownie 🙂

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… Read more »

oooooo i made a white chocolate coconut brownie on my blog a couple of months ago and absolutely agree! AMAZING!!! and annoying people suck 🙂


you’re too funny, love the sarcastic rant.
You’re so right…. 🙂

Cookie Sleuth

Eating a few of these would make everything seem less annoying! 🙂


Working in customer service makes me have days like this quite often. I feel you. These look delish and I hope you feel better. When I was mad at everyone the other day my friend sent me a link to the Real Actors Read Yelp Reviews videos on YouTube and it made me laugh. Give it a try!


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.

Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

Mmm so scrumptious!

Lisa {Sweet 2 Eat Baking}

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.


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!

Julie @ Table for Two

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 🙂

luv what you do

Ohh…those look really good! I love the spin on the classic brownie. Very creative!

Robyn Stone | Add a Pinch

Totally know how you feel about those three situations up there. Totally. But these brownies? Oh yes! Those need to be in my life really, really soon!


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!!!

Juliana Walters

You’re pretty funny! I hate to admit it but, most of the time I just look at your amazing photos and recipes. But every once in a while I read your posts, and every time I do ,I laugh!

Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

Love that you took the typical chocolate brownie and made it BETTER! I could so see myself dunking these babies in a tall glass of milk. Delish!

Lisa | With Style and Grace

I would love a whole pan of these right now!!


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.

sally @ sallys baking addiction

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?????


That was my day today. I hid in my room and avoided everyone
