But I came across my old recipe for blondies & knew I really wanted to make some – but I wanted them to have something more exciting about them than just the standard blondie recipe.
So I decided to add my favorite cookie combo to the mix & create these White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Blondies.
Here are some commonly asked questions
Why does this recipe call for white chocolate candy melts and white chocolate chips?
I personally like to have a larger piece of melty white chocolate when I bite into the blondie. So I find that the candy melts not only offer that, but they also do exactly what they are intended to do- melt.
Unlike a chocolate chips, which are intended to keep their shape, the melts actually melt nicely when heated & leave little pockets of white chocolate deliciousness in each bite.
Can I add toasted coconut to this recipe?
I have seen many recipes that do include coconut or toasted coconut. You can absolutely do that.
I would suggest either mixing it into the batter before baking or adding to the top in the last 5 minutes of the baking process so that the coconut doesn’t get overly toasty.
