Why this is the Best White Chocolate Blondie Recipe
I’ve tested this recipe so many times I’ve lost count. I’ve been making blondies for years and have tweaked and adjusted the recipe many times until I landed on this one. I haven’t looked back since.
The key in achieving the perfect texture is the ratio of ingredients. Blondies are made with lots of brown sugar – it’s what gives them their soft and chewy texture. You also need some flour in there for structure, but if you get the ratio wrong you can end up with cakey blondies or ones that are too gooey.
Obviously, there are other ingredients, too, but the flour to sugar ratio is the key. It’s the same with brownies (blondies chocolate cousin) and I’ve got it all figured out for you!
Tips for Baking Blondies
I think one of the biggest challenges when you make blondies for the first time is the baking time. You want to bake them long enough so they are cooked through (no raw centers!) but not too long otherwise they will overbake and will be hard instead of soft and chewy.
I always include recommended baking times, but what’s more important are visual cues when you’re baking. For blondies, you want to take them out of the oven once they look set (not jiggly in the center) and have started to turn lightly golden on top.
In fact, I recommend that you err on the side of under baked with this recipe. They will continue to bake in the pan even after you take them from the oven. They might not look done when you pull them out, but I can promise they’ll be perfect after they’ve cooled.
How to Switch Up this Recipe
Brown butter white chocolate brownies are amazing and a great way to put a twist on this recipe. If you’ve never browned butter you can learn more about it here, but basically, it’s an easy way to add a nutty, caramel flavor to your brownies.
I love the simple combination of the white chocolate with the brown sugar blondie, but feel free to mix up the add-ins. It’s an easy way to put a spin on the recipe every time you make it.
For this recipe you can add 2 cups of mix-ins. I usually add a cup and a half to the batter and then sprinkle the rest over the top before I bake the bars. Here are some other ideas you might want to try!
- Chocolate chips
- Toffee bits
- Chopped candy bars like Snickers, peanut butter cups, Skor bars or other candy bar you like
- M&M candies or Reese’s pieces
- Chopped nuts like walnuts, almonds, pecans or peanuts
You can also do a combination of mix-ins. Just be sure to keep the amount to two cups total.
How to Store Homemade Blondies
Air is the enemy, friends! So, always store your cooled blondies in an airtight container. This will keep them from drying out and hardening.
They will keep for three to four days at room temperature or up to a week in the refrigerator.
You can also freeze them for later. Tightly wrap them and keep them in a freezer bag or other container.
Are you ready to make the best white chocolate blondies?! I know you are going to love this recipe – there is nothing better than fresh-baked batch of soft and chewy blondie bars.

White Chocolate Blondies Recipe
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 cups brown sugar packed
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×13” pan with foil and spray well with cooking spray.
- Mix butter and brown sugar with a stand or a hand mixer until crumbly. Mix in eggs and vanilla until smooth. Mix in salt, baking powder, then flour. Stir in 1 ½ cups of the mix-ins.
- Spread in prepared pan. The mixture is wet so it’s best to spray your hands with cooking spray and then smooth the dough with your hands to get an even layer. Top with remaining mix-ins
- Bake for about 22-25 minutes until they start to turn golden. Err on the side of under baked with these – they’ll finish baking as the cool and you don’t want them over baked.
