White Chocolate Brownies

With A Blast: White Chocolate Brownies    #brownies

White Chocolate Brownies ... what is it really, a brownie or a blondie?  I don't know brownies that well, or blondies for that matter.

I found this recipe on the Nestle site and being a lover of white chocolate I had to make it ASAP. But, as they say, "curiosity killed the cat" , I googled white chocolate brownies and did not really get a straight answer.

Apparently, it can be a brownie or a blondie - no matter the color of the actual chocolate or the bars in general.  Something I did pick up on, was that brownies must be chocolatey, but blondies not.

Therefore, I'll leave it up to you to call it whatever you believe it should be.


{16 - 20 bars}

Adapted by me from the recipe on Nestle's site.

1 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 t Baking Powder
Pinch Salt
3/4 cup Caster Sugar
2 Extra-Large Eggs
2 TB Water
2 drops Almond Essence
200g White Chocolate, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/3 cup Butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup Almonds, raw, sliced
3 TB Dark Chocolate, to decorate

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 20cm oven dish with cooking spray.
2.) Combine the Flour, Baking Powder and Salt in a small bowl.
3.) Beat together the Caster Sugar, Eggs, Water and Almond Essence - add the White Chocolate and Butter - stir to combine - gradually add the Flour mixture.
4.) Pour into the prepared oven dish and bake 25 - 30 minutes.
5.) Meanwhile toast the Almond slices in a dry pan over medium heat - it burns suddenly, so keep an eye out {I actually love burnt nuts, but most people don't!}.
6.) Remove the baked brownies from the oven - cool completely.

Decorate with the Almond slices and drizzle the Dark Chocolate over. Slice into bars and serve!

Hope you enjoy,
