White Chocolate Brownies

First of all, I can't believe that I haven't posted about these brownies in the over two years that I've been blogging. They're very good and quite different as far as a brownie goes. I developed them several years ago after being asked to make a trifle for a holiday gathering. I wanted to do something a little different, so I sought out working on a white chocolate brownie that I could pair with some lemon pudding and raspberries. I do remember the trifle being pretty good- but it's the brownie that really stood out, and I've been making it ever since.

This tastes like white chocolate- it's not even just sweet like white chocolate products tend to taste to me, it actually tastes like white chocolate. This is also my brownie for April's blogging event Brownie Babe of The Month- hosted by Once Upon A Tart. Nothing like the last minute, I know, but how could I pass up an opportunity to talk about brownies! Who doesn't love brownies!

Now, when I decided that I was going to participate with my white chocolate brownie, I thought it was going to need something, and I needed to take them a little further into decadent territory. A quick mental tour through my pantry revealed some pecans, mini chocolate chips, and a can of dulce de leche. It didn't take long to weave a ribbon of toasted pecans and dulce de leche into my white chocolate brownie which I'd studded with mini chocolate chips. And oh yeah. I found decadence.

These rose a little more than normal- I'm not sure of the reason for that, but if you prefer a brownie to be more fudgy than cakey- you can reduce the baking powder in these by about half- but you'll need to keep an eye on the baking time. I like these cakey- it pairs well with the white chocolate somehow. Either way, my White Chocolate Brownies with Dulce De Leche Filling are a decadent way to celebrate the humble brownie. Thanks to Myriam for hosting this event- it was a lot of fun to do.

Mmmm...I think, that unless the chocolate is dark, I prefer white chocolate to milk chocolate. That doesn't really make sense, since white chocolate is sweeter than milk chocolate but...anyway! These look so good.

Lol!

I will say that these are excellent for sharing. They are pretty rich, so they are best cut into smaller pieces. :-) Surely that's less than a pound...

I can only imagine what these taste like in a trifle...oh man!
