What Are White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies?
A blondie is a type of dessert bar.
They existed for at least ten years before chocolate brownies were introduced to the world of baking. “Dense, fudgy, butterscotch-flavoured bars,” existed in the late 19th century, and chocolate brownies were not developed until 1905, according to The Guardian.
It resembles a chocolate brownie, but substitutes vanilla in place of cocoa, and contains brown sugar. Blondies also contain flour, butter, eggs, and baking powder and may also contain crunchy ingredients like walnuts or pecans and white or dark chocolate chips.
Blondies are not usually frosted; the brown sugar in the sticky batter tends to be sweet enough. A variation is the Congo Bar, which contains chocolate chips with either walnuts or coconut.
They are baked in a square or rectangular pan in the oven in a manner similar to that of the baking traditional brownies. Once cooled they are cut into rectangular or square shapes for serving. They’re typically served as a cutlery-free snack and since they can be eaten with your hands they’re perfect for casual family dinner parties, backyard barbeques or potlucks.
Blondies are sometimes served in ice cream sundaes, drizzled with caramel sauce.
Our favourite rift on the classic recipe are these White Chocolate and Raspberries Blondies. The soft and chewy dough is flavoured with fresh raspberries, dollops of raspberry jam and white chocolate chips.
My Family Loves White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies
I love baking at home!
Over the years I’ve developed popular family recipes for cakes, pies, breads, cookies, pancakes, and muffins.
I love the classic pairing of raspberries and white chocolate. It reminds me of fancy Christmas cakes, romantic Valentine’s Day mousse and an eye-catching Mother’s Day trifle.
Using these delicious complimentary flavours I developed my own recipe for White Chocolate Raspberry Blondies. They’re so easy to make and yummy that anyone would be proud to serve them at a party.
The first time I baked this Raspberry Blondies recipe was for a holiday sweet swap. I thought the combination of red and white would make for the perfect festive sweet treat.
I knew my family would love these White Chocolate Raspberry Blondies because they love chewy brownies, handheld snacks, fresh berries and decadent white chocolate.
While we typically serve the homemade blondies as a quick & easy snack or dessert enjoyed all on their own they also pair nicely with a hot pot of tea or coffee. White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies are also a yummy late night sundae idea, served with a few scoops of raspberry gelato or white chocolate ice cream.
White Chocolate Raspberry Blondies Recipe Tips
If it’s your first time baking White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies at home be sure to review our detailed step-by-step recipe below. Here are some helpful tips and tricks to get you started:
- We suggest greasing the square baking tin with cooking spray but you can also use softened butter or slather the interior of the pan with a flavourless vegetable oil like canola.
- We suggest using a high quality rubber spatula when mixing the batter so you can easily stir and scrape down the side of the bowl.
- Berry flavour is added via dollops of raspberry jam and fresh raspberries, which are stuffed in the centre of the batter. You can substitute fresh raspberries for frozen if you prefer.
- You can adjust the flavour of the recipe easily by substituting other fresh berries and their corresponding jam. These white chocolate blondies also taste great paired with strawberries, blackberries or blueberries.
- We’ve used white chocolate chips in this recipe but you can substitute with chopped white chocolate bars or white chocolate Hershey kisses instead.
- Once you’ve added the dollops of raspberry jam to the surface of the blondies make sure to slowly pass a knife through the batter to create a swirling effect. This helps distribute the raspberry jam throughout the bars.
What To Serve With White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies
We love snacking on Raspberry Blondies all on their own! They’re easy to eat as they require no cutlery, so kids can have fun eating with their hands.
If you have guests coming over for dessert serve White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies with your favourite loose leaf tea or coffee. Kids often enjoy blondies paired with a cold glass of milk.
You can also serve a decadent ice cream sundae by placing one of the squares in a bowl and topping with your favourite scoop of ice cream, gelato or sorbet. Sprinkle with white chocolate chips and fresh raspberries.
Should I Cover Brownies or Blondines While They Cool
The best way to cut brownies for a super clean-cut appearance is to chill them in the fridge or freeze them overnight—before slicing. First, let them cool completely, and then cover the pan with foil or plastic wrap and place it in the fridge or freezer.
How To Store Raspberry Blondies
If you have leftovers, cover the bars in plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for 5-7 days.
You can also freeze leftover bars for 2 to 3 months. Be sure to slice the bars before storing in the freezer, wrapped individually with plastic wrap, so you can easily reheat slices whenever you have a craving for sweets!

What Is The Difference Between White Chocolate Brownie and Blondies?
Blondies differ significantly from white chocolate brownies. Unlike the white chocolate brownie or the normal brownie, the batter of blondies contain no chocolate or chocolate flavouring, other than chocolate chips, which may be included.
They may also contain coconut, nuts, toffee, or any other chunky candy for added texture.
Can You Rebake Undercooked Blondies?
Yes, it’s ok to put undercooked brownies back in the oven, even if you’ve left them cooling on the counter for a few hours.
Put the brownies back into their baking tray, preheat the oven to 350 F and bake the brownies until they’re done to your liking.
How To Make White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies
White Chocolate Raspberry Blondies
- Square Baking Pan
- Mixing bowls
- measuring cups
- measuring spoons
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Kosher Salt
- 1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 cup Salted Butter melted, cooled slightly
- 1 cup White Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 cup Raspberries
- 1/2 cup Raspberry Jam
- Arrange the oven racks so one is in the centre position. Preheat oven to 350F.
- Spray the bottom and sides of a 8×12 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl then set aside.
- Combine the brown sugar and eggs in a medium bowl and whisk until the mixture is smooth and lightened in colour. Gradually add the butter, stirring with the whisk as you add it. Use the whisk to stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture and fold it in with a rubber spatula until almost no flour is visible.
- Using a rubber spatula, transfer half of the batter to the prepared pan. Use the spatula to get the batter into the corners. Sprinkle with raspberries. Transfer the remaining batter into the pan and smooth out the top. Sprinkle with the white chocolate chips.
- Drop in the jam in 1 tsp drops, distributing it over the surface of the batter. Draw a small paring knife back and forth through the batter, running it through the jam across the length of the pan and then back across the sides.
- Place the blondies on the centre rack of the oven and bake for 30 minutes, until the batter is puffed up, rotating the pan from front to back halfway through the baking time. Remove the pan from the oven and put it on a cooling rack. Let the blondies cool to room temperature in the pan. Use a large knife to cut the blondies into 9 equal pieces.
