My dad’s birthday was yesterday and he wanted me to make him something that wasn’t a cake. I said, “Well what do you want me to make you?” He simply said, “Brownies.” I didn’t want to make him the normal chocolatey brownies with cocoa powder. So I did some research and came across these brownies! What made me really want to make these brownies was the fact that they had white chocolate in them, I mean who doesn’t like white chocolate? When I saw that the ingredients had white chocolate, I was shocked and decided I had to test these bad boys out! They are perfect for people with a big sweet tooth–they are super sweet, gooey, and chocolatey!
(adapted from King Arthur Flour – “Black and White Brownies”)
1 cup white chocolate chips (they melt easily)
¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter
¾ cups granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 ¼ cup flour
½ tsp baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F/176°C. Cover a 9-in square pan foil and lightly butter it. (I used a small cylindric pan.)
First, sift the baking powder, salt and flour together.
Next, melt the butter in a (heat proof) bowl over simmering water. Once the butter is melted take it off the simmering water and add in the white chocolate chips. Stir till the all the white chocolate is soft. Be careful not to overcook the white chocolate. Once the the chocolate is softened, add in granulated sugar. Let this mixture come to a lukewarm temperature.
Once, the mixture of butter, white chocolate, and sugar is lukewarm, beat/whisk in one egg at a time.
Here is what the batter looks like after both eggs are whisked in:
Next, stir/whisk the dry mixture (baking powder, salt and flour) into the egg mixture.
Now it’s time to fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips! 😀
Finally, place the batter into the foil covered pan and bake for about 25 minutes or until the top of the brownies are a light brown color.
25 minutes later….
Then, let the black and white brownies cool. Grab the foil to pull the brownies out. Cut and Serve.
My batch came out a little too gooey, but I like gooey. 🙂 I had a feeling they would be too gooey because I read a lot of reviews about them being too gooey and too chewy. If you don’t want them gooey, make sure you don’t melt the chocolate, keep it soft. Also, maybe bake them a little longer, just don’t burn them!
Anyways, they were very delicious!
