White Chocolate and Whopper Blondies

Mmmm.... my sweet tooth kicked in this afternoon and since I had some white chocolate and some Robin's Egg candies from Easter I decided to use them up to make a tasty blondie treat. I'm sure you could use macadamia nuts too and make a yummy white-chocolate + macadamia nut bar, but since my sis is allergic to tree nuts I opted against it. The blondies were really good; not too sweet and not too cakey. Although I would probably have baked them a little less, so they'd be a bit more moist... but I had gotten distracted from my baking because my sister's needed to be picked up from school. Oh well, I'll probably whip these up again soon.

White Chocolate Whopper Blondies

- 1 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 bar of your favorite white chocolate, coarsely chopped
- 1/2 cup Whopper candies (I used Robin's Egg Whoppers), crushed

1. Cream together the butter and brown sugar
2. Add eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture and continue mixing.
3. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a separate bowl.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix until just combined.
5. Fold in the chopped chocolate and the Whopper candies.
6. Pour mixture into a 9x9 baking pan and bake at 350degrees for 30-35minutes, until just set and still moist.
7. Slice and serve!
