White Chocolate Brownies With Frosting Recipe

These decadent white chocolate brownies are rich, chewy, and bursting with white chocolate flavor. Topped with a silky smooth frosting, they are the perfect sweet treat.

Ingredients:

Brownies:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 6 oz white chocolate, chopped
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup (optional) white chocolate chips

Frosting:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 oz white chocolate, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a 9×13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.

Make the brownies:

  • In a saucepan or using a double boiler, melt butter and white chocolate over low heat. Be careful not to overheat or burn the chocolate. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined. Whisk in the cooled chocolate mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix.
  • Fold in white chocolate chips, if using.
  • Pour batter into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs. Don’t overbake, as the brownies will continue to set as they cool.
  • Let brownies cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before frosting.

Make the frosting:

  • In a mixing bowl, cream together softened cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the melted white chocolate, then gradually add the powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Stir in vanilla extract.
  • Spread the frosting over the cooled brownies. You can frost the brownies as thick or thin as you like.
  • Refrigerate brownies for at least 30 minutes before cutting and serving. The cold temperatures will help the frosting set.

Tips:

  • For a richer brownie flavor, use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar.
  • You can substitute chopped nuts or dried fruit for the white chocolate chips.
  • If you don’t have a double boiler, you can melt the butter and chocolate together in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted and smooth.
  • To make the brownies extra decadent, drizzle melted white chocolate over the top of the frosted brownies before refrigerating.

Enjoy these delicious white chocolate brownies!
