How To Store Christmas Tree Blondies

As always most things are best enjoyed fresh. That goes for these blondies too. BUT that doesn’t mean that you can’t prepare these ahead of time for a party or holiday event. These blondies should be stored in an airtight container or sealed ziplock baggie in the fridge. They should be left out at room temperature for at least 20 minutes before serving to allow the buttercream to soften.

These delicious and festive blondies can also be stored sealed in the freezer for up to three months. After freezing they may loose their dusted confectioner’s sugar look so you may need to redo this step before serving.

The browned butter really takes these blondies to the next level. It adds such a warm, nutty flavor and pairs perfectly with sweet white chocolate.

You’re more than welcome to substitute the white chocolate for your favorite kind of chocolate, semi-sweet, milk, dark, whichever you prefer! You can also add walnuts in there for more flavor and texture too!!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 cup light brown sugar

  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar

  • 2 eggs, room temperature

  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 4 oz. white chocolate baking bar

  • Buttercream Topping
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 2 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar

  • 3-5 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream

  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 2-3 drops green food dye

  • 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar for dusting (optional)

  • Sprinkles for decorating (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a 9″ x 9″ pan with parchment paper enough so that there is excess hanging out the sides of the pan. Set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small pot, place the butter over medium heat. Melt the butter and continuously swirl the pot. TO brown the butter keep the butter over heat and let it bubble until it begins to lightly foam on the top and brown on the bottom. It should start to smell nutty as well.
  • Pour the browned butter in a large bowl then add in both sugars. Whisk until the mixture is nice and smooth.
  • Add in the eggs one at a time mixing between each addition. Add in the vanilla.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet then use a silicone spatula to fold in the white chocolate baking bar pieces.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and top with more white chocolate. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow the bars to cool completely before slicing and decorating.
  • To cut the blondies, cut the square in half then cutting at angles, slice the two halves into 4 triangles.
  • To make the buttercream, cream together the butter and confectioner’s sugar while slowly adding in 1 tablespoon of heavy cream at a time. Once the buttercream becomes light and smooth, add in the vanilla, salt and food dye.
  • Place the buttercream into a piping bag fit with a large star tip. Beginning at the top of each blondie, pipe your way down the tree using a back and forth motion.
  • Dust the top with confectioner’s sugar and sprinkles.
  • Enjoy!
