White Chocolate Chip Bars

Posted on

I am so glad these are yummy, because it was quite an ordeal to make them.

This story is for those of you who think it was an effortless baking session.


So I melted the butter.  Check.

Wait, it said unsalted.


Then I went to get the light brown sugar.

There was only dark.

I freaked out a little.

But I made an adjustment and proceeded.


Then vanilla extract.

There’s no more.  Well, a drop or so.

Seriously, could I really be having a vanilla extract emergency??  Yes.

So I freaked out some more.

Once I got myself back together, I did some modifications and hoped for the best…


They were crunchy on the outside and oh so soft in the middle.

And oh so good.  

Disaster averted and a new bar created.

Nice.  🙂


White Chocolate Chip Bars

  • 3/4 C butter
  • 1 1/8 C packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/8 C sugar
  • 1/2 T vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 C all-purpose flour (I used King Arthur whole white wheat)
  • 1 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1 1/2 C white chocolate chips

Grease 9 x 13 baking pan.

Beat butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs in large bowl until light and creamy.

Stir in flour and baking powder until well blended.  Stir in 1 cup white chocolate chips.

Spread mixture in the pan.

Bake 25 minutes, or until light golden brown and the center is set.

Cool completely in the pan.

Melt remaining white chocolate chips and drizzle on top.

    Will give these a try!

  3. I smiled when I read this! So many times I get together my _mise en place_ as my baking instructor was wont to do, and find I am missing an ingredient! I once forgot the sugar–but that’s another story! So I’m curious to know, you adjusted for the butter, the sugar, and the vanilla. What did you do? Everything is picture perfect!

    • I think it happens to me every time! 🙂 For this, I just left the salted butter, used 1/2 the vanilla, and substituted 1/2 dark brown sugar and 1/2 granulated sugar for the light brown sugar. The recipe I posted was my new invention, and everyone loved it. Phew! 🙂

  4. These look so yummy! Worth it in the end for sure! Oh and thanks for stopping by my blog, pretty new to this so every ‘like’ is a great encouragement!

  5. Those look amazing, I will definitely try them. Thanks for the recipe

  7. I can really identify with your mishaps. The bars looks sooooo good. I have a weakness for white chocolate.
