Post #100: White Choco Brownies


Yay!!! I've reached a milestone in this little bloggy of mine since starting it back in March. I've reached 100 posts. Woohoo... I'm actually surprised by the recipes I've posted thus far. And so many, too. Some of you readers may know of my love for chocolate when I've commented on some of your blogs. But I have yet make a chocolate concoction on this site. Never fear! I've finally made a chocolate dessert/snack recipe. What better way to start then with the classic brownie. A white chocolate brownie with peanut butter chips and pecans to be exact. Have I got your attention now?

Btw...I had my first taste of bacon chocolate a couple days ago. Holy cow was it good!!! A wonderful blend of salty and sweet. I must get me more!

Anyway...we're all used to seeing the cocoa version of the brownie. Not too often does white chocolate play a role. We got to give it some star appearances once in a while. I mean it is good stuff.

Don't mind my hack job of a square cut on those brownies seen in the pictures. I could never wait for them to fully cool down. To eager? Yes, but they were begging to be sliced. Really, they were. They were moist and chewy with the slight flaky top crust. Goes perfect with a tall cold glass of moo juice. Better yet, how about a couple mini scoops of oreo sundae ice cream from Baskin and Robbins? When I say mini, I mean mini. Golf ball sized scoops. That's why you see three on the dish slightly melting next to the warm brownie. When that happens, you're in for a fun and delicious time.



White Chocolate Brownies with Peanut Butter chips and Pecans

1 c white chocolate chips (plus extra)
1 c granulated sugar
1/2 c unsalted butter or margarine (softened)
2 eggs
1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 c cake flour or all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 c peanut butter chips
1 c pecan pieces (plus extra)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c water

Preheat oven to 350˚F

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt. Set aside.

Melt the white chocolate white chocolate chips in a bowl with the water. Heat in the mircowave for 1 1/2 - 2 min or until melted. Stir the mixture after the first minute to combine. Or use the double boiler method. Bring some water to a boil in a small pot. Once the water is boiling bring it down to a simmer. Place the chocolate and water in a metal bowl and place on top of the pot. Stir chocolate ocassionally to combine until melted.

In another bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Then add in the eggs, mixing after each one. Add in vanilla, then the melted white chocolate. Combine well then slowly add the flour mixture. Mix well until there are no lumps.

Add in the peanuts butter chips and pecan pieces.

Lightly grease prefered baking pan and pour in the batter. Sprinkle a little more white chocolate chips and pecan pieces on top.

Baked for 25 min. Let it cool for at least 5-10min then cut into squares.

Enjoy with a cold glass of moo juice or ice cream.
