White Chocolate Lemon Blondies

These White Chocolate Lemon Blondies are ridiculously amazing! So easy and delicious! My new favorite!

I am going to tell you that these bars are ridiculous.

Honestly one of my new favorites…which is annoying because I feel like I have been saying that a lot lately…



Like if everything is a favorite then nothing’s a favorite, I mean right?

You can’t favorite EVERYTHING!


So sorry about this.

They are.

A new favorite.


Maybe my most favorite…I mean for today.

The unfortunate thing about these bars, though, is that no one else who resides in my home likes lemon baked stuff.

But they DO, however like lemonade.  And lemon candy.  And, oh yeah, raw lemons.

Which basically makes no sense.



Except here’s the even MORE annoying thing.

I don’t like lemonade.  Or lemon candy.  Or even lemons, really.

But baked goods with lemon?  BRANG IT!


So basically my family and I are all backwards lemon weirdos.


Anyway.  These bars rocked my Sunday afternoon.


White Chocolate Lemon Blondies.

Love a completely non-complicated dessert!


Just make your batter and add in some white chocolate…

But why oh why do they call it curd.  It’s annoying and gross sounding.


But it’s delicious.

The whole jar, guys.

Let it cool completely before cutting into squares…or even removing it from the pan.

All that curd in there makes it loosey-goosey.  So be patient.

Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

White chocolate and lemon are fabulous together! Loving this recipe!

jenny Flake

Oh girl these are so gorgeous!! Drooling over here 🙂

Averie @ Averie Cooks

I love white choc chip blondies! I make them usually with coconut. I would LOVE the addition of lemon. I love those big hunks of curd before you swirled them. MMMmmmm! 🙂

Lindsey @ American Heritage Cooking

Oh wow these look amazing! I hate when my taste in desserts don’t align with my fiance’s, but then I remember…More for me! You must have the patience of a saint because there is no way I would have been able to let those cool all the way before cutting a slice!


What I don’t get is how you get 25 bars out of a 9×9 pan! They must be teeny tiny…or is that the point?

Sarah | The Sugar Hit

I LOVE some lemon up in my baked goods. These look awesome!


I know what you mean, I have a new favorite everyday. Cooking/baking everyday requires A LOT of favorites!

These bars are insane! I love the white chocolate and the lemon together. That sounds like a dreamy combo!


I’m fairly certain the.boy shares your kid’s taste buds…because he feels similarly about lemon desserts even though I’m passionate about them! But…who says I’d share these with him anyway. Yum. Happening.

Kristin @ Bake Something

Oh wow these look amazing! I love lemon cake so I bet these rock. Gonna have to try these!


Seriously? My two favorite flavors, lemon & white chocolate, together in a rich blondie? YOU are my favorite 🙂

Jamie @lifelovelemons

Never would have thought to try this flavor combination, but it sounds fabulous!! Definitely adding it to my to-try list!


This looks great, 1.2 cup granulated sugar? Is it 1 1/2 cups?

Laura @ Lauras Baking Talent

How much granulated sugar?

Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes

Love the simple ingredients. I need these in my life!! 🙂

Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts

I am blondie obsessed, and these are amazing! Never would have thought of the lemon twist!

Rosie Slate

Sorry to sound so blonde but did you mean to say 1/2 C. sugar? I WASN’T SURE WHAT 1.2 SUGAR meant. Can’t wait to make them. I just wanted to verify how much sugar.

Laura Dembowski

Oh man, I’d like the whole pan, please! Adding lemon curd is a brilliant idea!

Melissa @ Treats With a Twist

Ohmagahhhhh I love lemon bars and lemon baked goods…just serve these up and I’m done! I want these! And I could eat lemon curd with a spoon. So good.


I was @ a Brit goods shoppe Saturday and almost pick up a jar of Robinson’s curd.
Now I have to go back. 😉

Liz @ Tip Top Shape

This is so unique! I’d never think to pair lemon and white chocolate. Definitely making this soon 🙂


You had me at lemon curd! Can’t wait to try these soon!

Melanie @ Just Some Salt and Pepper

These sound so good! Lucky for me, everyone in my family likes lemony baked goods.

Renee @ Awesome on $20

I was all, “ooh, these sound really good,” and then I saw you put in a whole jar of lemon curd, and I died. I cannot wait to try these. They look amazing.

Betsy @JavaCupcake

White chocolate & lemon is one of my favorite combinations! And these…. with all that lemon curd. HOLY COW!!! YUM!


I cannot wait to make these!! One of my favorite food combo’s is lemon and white chocolate together! These could easily be a favorite of mine too!

Annie @ Annie

Loving these!! I adore lemon curd and can’t even begin to imagine how good it must be in these blondies!

Side note – I made your Nutella butter bars last week, but with Biscoff – they were AMAZING!! Everyone loved them 🙂

Devour Catering

wow, they look delicious


White choco blondies are definitely the best–looks like you’ve still got some summer zest in you, which I love (autumn = too soon! Or I’m in denial). Thank you for sharing this–totally going into my to-do folder!


I just made these bars but substituted lemon pie filling for lemon curd because I couldn’t find any lemon curd at the local store. They were good, but I’m sure they would have been better with the curd. :/


I never had lemon curd but I’ve stocked up now as I think these are going to be my favorite bars as soon as I make them once!

Tracy | Peanutbutter and onion

You have me at lemon!


Seriously delicious! They look so moist and almost fudge-like. I bet they’d be good with lime curd, too!


Hi. I just want to ask, is there a substitute for lemon curd? Since its kinda hard to find that all the way here in PI.

Thanks 😀


Hi – I made these last night and they turned out just like your picture, and taste delicious! The curd is still fairly gooey, though – is that how they’re supposed to be? Yum yum!


I made some raspberry curd and used it in the recipe. I am here to tell you that if the result were a person, I would have cheated on my husband with it. SO EFFIN GOOD.
