My White Chocolate Maple Blondies Recipe Are The Perfect Applebees Dupe!

These blondies look fairly unassuming. Probably similar to a million other things I’ve made…

But y’all guys. They are fall on the ground, hum when you chew, name your first born after me good. Like really. So please, I insist that you give these a try.

Yes they are sweet. Yes they have 3 sticks of butter. Yes, they have white chocolate. Yes, there is a splash of maple in them…and yes, they are topped with the most insane maple butter sauce that will will easily decide to pour on everything that you eat forevermore.

How to Make White Chocolate Maple Blondies

The very easy blondie recipe comes together with simple ingredients:

  • Butter. I used salted butter, but you can use either salted or unsalted.
  • Light Brown Sugar. The brown sugar adds a little more depth of flavor than granulated sugar in this recipe.
  • Vanilla Extract. For a little more flavor.
  • Salt/Baking Powder.
  • All Purpose Flour.
  • Eggs.
  • Maple Syrup. I always use pure maple syrup, but certainly you can use pancake syrup if that’s all you have, although it doesn’t pack as much flavor. OR you can use 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of maple extract if you have that on-hand as well.

How To Know When Blondies Are Done Baking

The trick I use for blondies as well as brownies is that you insert a tooth pick a few inches away from the edge (NOT the center), and if it comes out clean they’re done! The reason I do this is because if you wait until the center comes out clean you will have an overdone brownie/blondie. This trick will leave your blondies soft!

Is the Maple Butter Sauce Optional?

Sure, but no. Ha! The maple butter sauce is out of control delicious, so I highly recommend you make it, especially if you plan on eating these warm with ice cream.

If you are bringing these to an event and aren’t planning to serve with the ice cream you can skip it because it could get messy if you don’t have a fork or spoon. But make sure to try the sauce at some point! It’s life changing good!

  1. I made these lovelies for a family function a little while ago. They were so good they were fighting over the last piece,even trying to bribe. It was so funny! That’s saying a lot because our family has lots of great bakers. Great job and thanks for sharing!

  2. I haven’t made the blondies yet, but have made the sauce several times. It is so delicious!! I used it on waffles, pancakes, ice cream & other blondies. It is so yummy I could drink it out of the jar! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. my friend and I are eating the batter as I type ! So tasty , large possibility the batter will be eaten unbaked.

  4. I used the 3/4 cup update. Mine are cooked on top but not inside. Up to 50 mins so far and still not cooked all the way through.

    1. That would work, but I’d only add 1/2 tsp to start and then more if needed, as 1 Tbsp of the extract would be too much! Let me know how they come out!!

  5. So…do you mean 1 1/2 STICKS of butter instead of 1 1/2 CUPS? I made these as written and they were really, really runny and inedible. It just seemed like way too much butter…

    1. Oh my yes. I just re-read the recipe and I did, indeed mean 3/4 CUP..1 1/2 sticks. Such a simple typo could lead to horrible results! I completely apologize! I can’t believe I didn’t catch this sooner!!!

  6. I WANT to fist face those who make snarky comments to me because I can’t eat dark chocolate! Here’s a KISS face for the white chocolate and maple in these beauties!! These look just like Applebee’s Restaurants Blondies. I halved again the amounts, to make a 9×13 pan. Bring on the French Vanilla Ice Cream and Maple Butter Sauce, I will be going into a sugar coma!! 🙂

  7. Hmm, can i skip the ice cream and just drizzle the sauce over the brownies or do you think that would just be sweetness overkill without the ice cream to cut it?
