Sweet, gooey, rich, and chewy – these White Chocolate Walnut Blondies taste divine!
White Chocolate Walnut Blondies are filled with white chocolate chunks, walnuts, and coconut. Serve this dessert recipe warm with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of praline sauce.
Applebee’s used to offer a wonderful White Chocolate Walnut Blondies on their dessert menu. I’m obsessed with desserts served hot with ice cream and wanted to recreate that restaurant dessert at home.
WHITE CHOCOLATE WALNUT BLONDIES
Blondies are similar in texture to brownies but don’t contain cocoa. They have a dense, moist texture like a brownie not a light, fluffy texture like a cake. Additionally, this recipe is easy to make and you can easily mix it by hand. I did use a mixer, my mixer is always on the counter ready and waiting.
However, I do love my KitchenAid Mixer. In particular, I like this one because it has the tilting head. So fyi, horsepower is the main difference in mixers in the cost. You want a higher horsepower if you use a mixer a lot on very thick doughs. I broke two mixers on the same cookie dough (that recipe is not on my site), but this KitchenAid mixer whipped through the dough without problems.
I filled these blondies with white chocolate chunks, walnuts, and coconut. You can add white chocolate chips if you prefer, but I like chopping a bar into large chunks. A big scoop of good quality vanilla cream, as well as my Easy Pecan Praline Sauce, completes this wonderful dessert. This blonde recipe would also be excellent with a peanut butter frosting.

- 2 cups brown sugar
- 3 large eggs at room temperature
- 2 cups self-rising flour

- 1 cup walnuts you can use pecans if you prefer
- 8 oz white chocolate bar chopped (I like chopping a bar in this better than using chips)
- 1 cup shredded coconut optional
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9x13 inch cake pan with non-stick spray.
- With an electric mixer or by hand cream sugar and butter together until smooth.
- Add the eggs and combine.
- Gradually add the flour and mix well. Add vanilla. Fold in nuts, coconut (if using), and white chocolate by hand and stir until evenly distributed.
- Spread in the prepared pan and bake for 22 to 25 minutes. I like them soft and chewy so I bake for 22 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.

Is the butter that is used salted or unsalted?
It can be either, your preference. I prefer salted butter so that’s what I always use.
I just made these, first of all i used dark brown sugar and i used 250grams not 400g. Secondly i did not use 400g of flour – this was waaay to much, i used 250/260grams of flour finally, lol these didn’t turn out as brownies. it was a cake but very nice i added half a teaspoon more of vanilla aswell
Well, of course, they didn’t turn out like my recipe, you changed too many variables for them too.
haha yeh i just realized what i have put – but they were really nice
The recipe instructions left the eggs out, but I figured to add them to the butter and sugar. Must of been a typo.

Sounds delicious, Paula! Pinned to make soon 🙂 I am glad I'm not the only “chef” .. lol.. messing up! Have you tried boiling water in the pot on the stove for a few minutes – usually that will loosen the burnt pieces
