White Chocolate Brownies

I'll admit that the first bite I took of these brownies was not my favorite. Due to my impatience and sweet tooth, I tried to eat one less than 30 minutes after they came out of the oven. It did not work. Several hours later they set up and everything went much better. I'm excited to make these again and experiment more with the recipe. The next thing I want to try is having unmelted white chocolate chips in the brownie batter.

White Chocolate Brownies

1 cup butter
1/2 cup white chocolate, chopped
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 Tbsp vanilla

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white chocolate, chopped
3 cups powdered sugar
Flavoring of choice (lemon extract, vanilla, etc.)

To make the brownies, melt 1/2 cup white chocolate and 1 cup butter on the stove or microwave. WATCH CLOSELY and stir frequently because white chocolate burns very easily.

Add eggs and sugar. Mix well. Add flour and vanilla. Mix well.

Pour into a greased 9x13" pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until done. To tell if they are done, stick a skewer into the center of the pan. There should be moist crumbs on the toothpick when removed. If you see smears of raw batter, keep baking.

Cool completely.

To make frosting, melt 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup white chocolate. Add powdered sugar and flavoring. Stir well. Add milk until desired consistency is reached.

Frost brownies. Let set and then enjoy!
