Have you ever craved something sweet and rich, but didn’t want the usual brownie or cookie? With the warm, spicy flavor of Speculoos cookie butter with the creamy sweetness of white chocolate, all wrapped up in a soft, chewy blondie, these Speculoos White Chocolate Blondies are pretty nearly perfect. They’re moist, rich, fudgy, and not too sweet.

I love cookie butter, and I love blondies, so these tasty treats are right up there! They’re dense, fudgy, moist, and not too sweet. So often, blondies are like biting into straight sugar – they’re just too sweet! I’ve cut down on the sugar in these, because with the cookie butter and white chocolate, you don’t need heaps more sugar.

This cookie butter dessert recipe is so easy to make, and you don’t even need a mixer! I use a solid bowl, and hefty wooden spoon and a bit of elbow grease. They bake in an 8×8 pan, though you could double the batch and make them in a 13×9-inch dish but you’ll have to adjust the baking time.

Step-By-Step Process

Heather’s Tried-and-True Tips

  • Use room-temperature eggs for better incorporation into the batter.
  • For a deeper flavor, use dark brown sugar.
  • Do not overmix the batter; just mix until the ingredients are combined to keep the blondies soft.
  • Partially freeze the blondies to firm them up and make cutting easier. This will give you nice, clean edges.
