Sweet, gooey, rich, and chewy – these White Chocolate Walnut Blondies taste divine!
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.

White Chocolate Walnut Blondies
- 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.
