White Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Ganache

White chocolate brownies? I thought it sounded strange as brownies are supposed to be brown, aren't they?

I have an entire bag of white chocolate chips sitting around. In an attempt to use those up, I tried out this White Chocolate Brownie recipe.


It wasn't the fudgy type of brownie but this cake-like brownie was very delicious and moist. The additional white chocolate chips added a crunch to the brownie. 


I topped it with a chocolate ganache sauce which added some colour to an otherwise plain looking bake and made it even more delicious!


White Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Ganache (24 servings)
Recipe from here

Ingredients for Brownie
  • 225 g butter
  • 84 g white chocolate, chopped
  •  4 eggs
  • 400 g white sugar (reduced to 300 g)
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 250 g all-purpose flour
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  •  180 g cup white chocolate chips (reduced to 150 g)
Ingredients for Chocolate Ganache
  • 100 g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 100 ml of whipping cream
 Method
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  • Melt the butter and white chocolate together over low heat in a saucepan. Remove from heat, and let cool slightly. Meanwhile beat eggs with sugar and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl; mix in the butter mixture, and stir in the flour and salt until thoroughly combined. Scoop the batter into the prepared baking pan; sprinkle with white chocolate chips.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow to cool in pan for about 10 minutes before cutting into bars.
  • Heat the chopped dark chocolate and whipping cream over a low heat and stir till melted and smooth. Let it cool for about 15 minutes. Place inside piping bag and pipe over the white brownies.

  2. Me too, brownie to me is brown and I never thought we could used white chocolate to make it. I think I will like this white brownie alot because I like cakey texture instead of fudgy. Love how you pipe out the ganache on top making it beautiful and presentable.

  6. I just happen to have some white chiocolate chips "hanging" around too, Mich. What a great way to use them. I wonder if these would be considered "blondies" since they are not brown:) What ever they are, they sure look yummy. The Chocolate Ganache is certainly the icing on the cake! Thanks for sharing, Mich...
