The very BEST White Chocolate Brownies! Rich, chewy, crinkle-top brownies made with sweet white chocolate. With only a few pantry staples, no specialty equipment, and less than an hour of your time, you can have these fudgy and moist brownies for the whole family to enjoy. Truly the perfect treat for white chocolate lovers!
It’s no secret that my mom and I love baking brownies. Actually, we love anything to do with brownies, whether it’s fudgy cookies or the largest skillet brownie you’ve ever seen! Brownies have always been a bake we could bond over. From the very first brownie we baked together 20+ years ago (we still use that same recipe!) to our most recent seasonal treat, peppermint bark brownies, my mom and I are always looking for a fun and delicious way to revamp the classic treat.
That’s what leads us to today’s recipe: white chocolate brownies! No, not blondies. Literal white. chocolate. brownies. It’s everything you love about brownies, but made into an extra sweet and rich white chocolate treat.
Aren’t White Chocolate Brownies Just Blondies?
White chocolate brownies might resemble blondies at first glance, but they’re actually quite different! Both are moist and decadent, but blondies lean towards a buttery, brown sugar flavor and they have a higher flour content so they are more like bar cookies. White chocolate brownies, on the other hand, swap brown sugar for white and embrace the smooth, milky notes of white chocolate for a unique twist on the classic brownie experience.

- Unlike any brownie you’ve ever had. The use of white chocolate creates a luxurious and indulgent flavor, with hints of sweet vanilla and creaminess, making these brownies a treat you don’t wanna miss!
- An extra chewy texture. This recipe results in an extra chewy texture, thanks to the addition of melted butter and sugar, complementing the richness of the white chocolate and giving them the classic “brownie” feel.
- Minimal Prep. With minimal ingredients and no specialty equipment required, this recipe is accessible and straightforward, making it perfect for both novice and experienced bakers!
- Quick to make. The recipe’s simplicity and short prep time make it convenient for whipping up a crowd-pleasing dessert in a short amount of time.
Let’s Talk Ingredients
- White Chocolate – Cocoa butter makes this vanilla flavored white chocolate ideal for making these brownies.
- Unsalted Butter – With a bright, fresh flavor that adds richness, unsalted butter also adds moisture and flavor and allows us to control the level of salt.
- Eggs – The binder that holds all the ingredients together and gives these blondies their rise, eggs also contribute structure, stability, moisture, and richness.
- Granulated Sugar – While adding the perfect amount of sweetness, it also helps with the texture and structure.
- Salt – Just a bit of salt enhance the flavor and tones down some of the sweetness.
- Vanilla Extract – It enhances the vanilla flavor in the white chocolate.
- All Purpose Flour – The protein content in all purpose flour creates the ideal structure for these brownies.
How To Make These White Chocolate Brownies (With Step-by-Step Pictures!)
Step 1: Prepare batter
Combine chocolate and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring after each, until melted and smooth. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla together.
Whisk in chocolate mixture.
Fold in flour.
Step 2: Bake
Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until desired degree of doneness.
The Significance of Chocolate Quality (Yes, It Really DOES Matter!)
Let’s talk chocolate.
Believe it or not, most of the white chocolate sold at supermarkets or online actually isn’t white chocolate. If you check ingredient lists, you’ll find that a very crucial ingredient is missing…cocoa butter! Cocoa butter is essential for chocolate, as that’s what makes chocolate – well, chocolate. While they’re advertised as white chocolate, they simply aren’t. A chocolate that doesn’t contain cocoa butter will never bake, melt, or taste like the real thing.
We recommend baking with a high quality chocolate bar rather than chocolate chips, as chips often do not contain cocoa butter.
How To Tell When Brownies Are Perfectly Baked
We found that using a cake tester or toothpick is the best way to tell when the brownie is perfectly baked. After inserting the cake tester, it should still be a little damp with maybe one or two crumbs on it.
This means that the brownie is still fudgy and moist, while being just barely baked!
