How to Make

  • Prep: Start the recipe by raising the oven heat to 350 degrees. Spray an 8×10 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Batter: Add the softened unsalted butter and brown sugar to a bowl or stand mixer. Cream butter at medium speed until the ingredients are fluffy. It should only take about 1 minute. Next, add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix until creamy. Sift the flour mixture into the dough.
  • Combine: Mix again until the dry ingredients are just combined with the wet ingredients. Finish by adding the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts into dough. Be careful not to overmix the batter.
  • Baking time: Pour into the prepared baking dish, and use an offset spatula to spread it out evenly. Pop the blondies in the preheated oven to bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Let them cool completely before slicing and serving.

  • Salted caramel: For salted caramel flavor in these blondies, you can add caramel and coarse salt. After taking the batch from the oven, simply drizzle with some Caramel Sauce, and sprinkle on a little bit of coarse sea salt to finish.
  • Nuts: You can try any other kind of nut besides macadamia that you like. Almonds, cashews, pecans, or walnuts would all make great additions to the White Chocolate Blondies.
  • Chocolate: To experiment with the chocolate flavor, swap the white chips for dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or semi-sweet chocolate chips. Use the chocolate to replace the white chocolate completely or combine white chocolate with a new kind for a lovely chocolate mixture in the recipe.
