White Chocolate Cranberry Blondies

Course Dessert


  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dried Craisins
  • 6 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 1 package 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel optional
  • 6 ounces white chocolate chips melted
  • 1/2 cup Craisins chopped


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt your butter in the microwave and then pour into the brown sugar. Mix well. Let cool to room temperature. Next beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon then gradually add the dry ingredients into the butter mixture.
  • Stir in cranberries and white chocolate chips. (batter will be thick).
  • Grease a 9 x 13 dish and press mixture in. Bake for 18-21 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean (do not overbake).
  • Let cool.
  • Frosting:
  • Blend together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and orange peel if desired. ( I did not include the orange peel) Gradually add half of the melted white chocolate chips and beat until well blended.
  • Frost the cooled blondies. Sprinkle with the chopped cranberries then drizzle with remaining melted white chocolate.
  • Let the drizzled chocolate cool and harden then you can cut into bars. I like to cut into a rectangle shape then cut each rectangle in half into a triangle shape.
  • These are also beautiful for wedding and baby showers!
