Incredible White Chocolate Brownies Recipe | #SundaySupper


white chocolate brownies

Yes. They really are incredible!

When I first started thinking about white chocolate brownies, I was hesitant because I’m not the world’s biggest white chocolate fan.  In fact, I even tried to weasel out of it by making regular chocolate brownies with white chocolate chunks thrown in instead.  However, I was told by several folks, including Chef Demetra Overton, blogger of Sweet Savant, that white chocolate brownies really do have to be made entirely with white chocolate.

So I bit the bullet and began researching recipes, because I really wanted to make white chocolate brownies for my very first #SundaySupper!  For the #SundaySupper event, bloggers from around the web create dishes that fit the theme for the week.  For this week, the theme is food on a budget. 

These white chocolate brownies are great on a budget, because you probably already have almost all the ingredients in your pantry or fridge.  All you need to add to your grocery list is a couple of bars of white chocolate.  Make sure you get the real thing, which is made with cocoa butter, not the imitation, which is made with vegetable oil.

Please be sure to check out the links to all the other #SundaySupper budget-themed recipes at the end of the recipe!

But How Do They Taste?

You’ll be amazed at both the texture and the flavor of these white chocolate brownies.  They are supremely chewy around the edges, yet perfectly fudgy and moist on the inside.  The flavor is extraordinary, like the best pound cake you’ve ever had, if it were somehow magically transformed into a brownie.

Before I made these, I didn’t really care for white chocolate.  Now, I have seen the light.  These white chocolate brownies may just convert you, too!  This is one of my favorite recipes I’ve created so far.  Enjoy!

Save Recipe


  • 8 oz white chocolate (made with cocoa butter, not vegetable oils)
  • 6 TB unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp Grand Marnier
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all purpose flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and prepare an 8 inch square pan by lining it with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and cut up the butter. Place both in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave at 50% power for one minute, or until the butter has melted. Once the butter has melted, remove the bowl from the microwave and stir gently until the white chocolate has melted completely and the mixture is smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, stir the butter and chocolate mixture into the sugar until combined. Add salt and Grand Marnier. Stir. Add the eggs and stir until combined; batter will look slightly curdled.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the batter and stir together until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out the top.
  5. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs but no wet batter on it.

How I Create New Recipes

To create a new recipe, I start by looking at photos of similar recipes.  I can usually determine the texture of a brownie by looking at the photo, and the flavor by looking at the recipe itself.  Once I have about six to eight recipes, I make an ingredient chart listing the amounts of butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs, and chocolate in each recipe, with a note on the texture as well.  Using those parameters as a guideline, I begin determining the amounts of individual ingredients for my own recipe.

For example, the amount of sugar in recipes for white chocolate brownies ranges anywhere from 1/4 cup of sugar to 1 cup of sugar in a 8- or 9-inch square pan recipe.  The maximum amount is 4 times the minimum amount.  That’s a pretty wide range!  

On the other hand, there seemed to be a consensus on salt.  Every recipe I looked at had just 1/4 tsp of salt.

Therefore, it was easy to go with 1/4 tsp of salt (which is a pretty standard amount for brownies in general), but harder to decide on the amount of sugar.  From looking at the photos, it seemed that reducing the sugar too much produced a cakelike brownie.  However, I really didn’t want them to come out too sweet, so I was wary of putting a full cup of sugar into the white chocolate brownies, because white chocolate already contains a great deal of sugar.  I made my best guess and went with half a cup of sugar. 

Luckily, it worked out perfectly.  Sometimes I have to go through several attempts at recipe creation before I find what works, but eventually I’ll get it right if I keep trying.  That’s part of the fun!
