Fudgy White Chocolate Brownies

White Chocolate Brownies are like a regular brownie recipe except they’re made with white chocolate instead of unsweetened or semi-sweet chocolate. With a few tweaks to my favorite brownie recipe I was able to turn them into something new – and they’re just as fudgy and sweet as the original recipe.

Why you’ll love this recipe

  • If you’re a white chocolate lover this is for you!
  • Full of white chocolate chips too.
  • Easy to make – one bowl!

Ingredients Needed

  • White chocolate: Use premium white chocolate – a baking bar, not chips or melts.
  • Butter: unsalted butter to melt the white chocolate pieces
  • Sugar: granulated sugar to keep these nice and blonde
  • Additional chocolate: add white chocolate chips or pieces for drizzle

Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!

How to make white chocolate brownies

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9×9-inch pan with parchment paper.
  • Place white chocolate pieces and butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. You can also melt them together on the stovetop using a small saucepan over low heat.
  • Stir the sugar into the melted butter and chocolate mixture. Stir in eggs and vanilla, then slowly stir in flour. Stir in chocolate chips and spread in the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is lightly golden and puffed. Cool completely before removing from the pan and decorating.
  • To decorate the tops, melt 2 ounces premium baking chocolate (or 1/4 cup white
  • chocolate chips with 1 teaspoon vegetable oil) in a small microwave safe bowl and heat on 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Place melted white chocolate in a sandwich bag and cut off a tiny edge of the tip and drizzle over cooled bars. Let set then slice.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.

Expert Tips 

  • Do not use foil; the brownies will get too brown around the edges. Instead, use parchment paper. 
  • You can omit the extra white chocolate chips, or swap nuts instead, or even oreos to make White Chocolate Oreo brownies!
  • You know your brownies are done when they’re a light golden on top and are not wet-looking.
