I had a hankering for brownies this week, and also Lindt's Gold Bar - White with roasted almonds...

so when one of my lovely 'likers' from Frills in the Hills Facebook and mate Renae offered me her blondie recipe (like a brownie but with white chocolate) I jumped at it.
I added a little bit of dark chocolate, but it's hardly noticeable, so feel free to not use it.. but I liked it!
200gr white chocolate
¾ cup caster sugar
2 eggs, beaten
¾ cup plain flour
¾ cup self raising flour
½ cup macadamias, chopped
1/4 cup dark chocolate, chopped
150gr raspberries (fresh or frozen - I used frozen)
100gr white choc, chopped, extra
2 tb cream
Melt your butter and white chocolate together - I do mine in the microwave by putting the chocolate in a microwave proof bowl, heating on 50% power for 1 minute, stir, then add the butter and heat again on 50% power for a further 1 minute. Go for another 30 seconds on 50% if it's not completely melted. Set aside.
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees c fanforced or 170 non-fanforced.
Grease a small baking tray and line with baking paper, lightly grease again (I sprayed with canola oil).
Allow to cool (if you're in a hurry like I was, place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes!) and then melt the remainder of your white chocolate, and then stir through the cream - it makes it spreadable and lovely. Spread over the top, allow to cool slightly before cutting up or even cutting out shapes (as I did, I love little blondie hearts!) Such a lovely treat! Enjoy!
Have a lovely Sunday everyone - I'm planning on doing not much - Hubby is making my favourite dinner for my birthday and hopefully we'll just having a relaxing family day...
Psst.. don't forget competition entries end at midnight tonight!
