winter ginger: white chocolate gingerbread blondies

white chocolate gingerbread blondies | everybody likes sandwiches

Every Halloween, we invite friends over to carve pumpkins and watch scary movies. There’s always plenty of treats on hand and I usually try to make something special like salted honey caramel apples or a batch of candied pretzel nutty popcorn. This time a Martha Stewart recipe caught my eye and the blondies were even better than I hoped they would be. The thing is, because of the molasses, they look a lot like chocolate brownies. One of my friends thought it was a rum flavoured brownie! Nope, that would be the strong flavour of molasses in the batter. Anyway, it was a perfect treat to grab as a distraction to the movie we were watching, the diabolically fun You’re Next. No, I wasn’t covering my eyeballs from the blood and gore, I was just grabbing another blondie, thank you very much.

Trust me, you don’t need to eat these as a distraction. You don’t need any excuse at all. Bake up a batch now and you won’t regret it. But if you need a little push, these are chewy and the edges are crispy and the white chocolate might seem like too much, but it’s not. White chocolate is the right thing here. I added walnuts for crunch because I love adding nuts to baked goods and they added a wonderful texture here. They make a lovely accompaniment to a cup of tea and I can speak from personal experience that they are delicious with a coffee at breakfast.

I think it’s time to whip up another batch!

    I’m certain this has been asked and answered but…where did your baking dish come from? I WANTS!

    I have made 3 UBCs in the past two weeks, 2 work, 1 family and all were a hit. I should send you royalties for that recipe 😉

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I made these last night, and they were delicious! I rarely find a recipe that I want to make a second time, but this is one of those rare finds. I’ll make these over and over again. Thanks!

    Darien, it’s a jadeite baking dish. Mine is a re-issue from several years ago but the vintage ones are certainly collectors pieces. Made by anchor-hocking I’m pretty sure.

    Kelley, I’m so glad you enjoyed these. I’ve already baked these several times over and they are a definite favourite 🙂

    I love anything gingerbread and these look amazing! I think I’d make these with dark chocolate chips since that’s more my jam.
