Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 6 oz high quality white chocolate bars, like Ghirardelli or Lindt + more for garnish
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine the butter and white chocolate in a medium size bowl.
  2. Place over a pot of simmering water, stirring continuously until melted. If the butter and chocolate separate, continue stirring vigorously until cohesive.
  3. In a separate bowl, whip the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy (3 minutes).
  4. Pour the chocolate/butter into the egg mixture, mixing on low until just combined.
  5. Fold in the flour, salt and vanilla extract.
  6. Pour into a parchment paper lined 8"x8" square pan and garnish with coarsely chopped pieces of white chocolate if desired.
  7. Bake at 325F for30-35 minutes. The brownies should be set in the middle and just starting to brown ever so slightly.
  8. Allow the brownies to cool completely in the pan before removing them.
  9. Drizzle with melted white chocolate if desired.


  • Bringing cold eggs to room temperature quickly: If you need to bring your eggs to room temperature quickly for this recipe, fill a bowl with hot water from your tap and place the eggs in it for about 5 minutes.
  • Not sure if your brownies are done? With white chocolate brownies, it's important to not let them get more than just lightly browned. When a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with gummy bits of crumbs but no raw batter, they're done. If in doubt, it’s better to under bake brownies than over bake them.
  • Easy slicing: Brownies are easiest to slice when they've been refrigerated for at least a few hours and up to overnight.
  • Storage: These brownies are best when eaten within 3-4 days and can be stored at room temperature in an air tight container. They can also be wrapped and frozen for up to 3 months.
