These White Chocolate and Coconut Blondies are chewy and tender, rich and delicious. The sweet white chocolate and crunchy coconut on top makes this a dessert you won’t want to share!
When it comes to dessert, I don’t have a huge sweet tooth. I’m more of a salty kind of person. But throw coconut on top, especially toasted coconut? Well that’s a whole other ballgame.
I’ve always had an affinity for Blondies, too. They are warm and sweet and the brown sugar gives them a nice, chewy texture.
So what exactly is a Blondie? Basically it’s a brownie without the cocoa. It also substitutes brown sugar for the granulated sugar in a traditional brownie. They lend themselves to different variations and flavor combinations, too. I personally love the white chocolate and toasted coconut in this recipe.
I had a couple of variations in mind when I came up with this recipe. I initially had planned to make a white chocolate ganache, but ultimately decided to just melt the chocolate chips right on top of the bars and boy am I glad that I did! Once the blondies came out of the oven I just covered the top with white chocolate chips. A minute or two in the oven and the chips were soft enough to spread…and spread I did. I smeared that white chocolate all over the top of the blondies using a small, offset spatula. You could also use a knife but the spatula really gets into those corners of the pan with ease. Finally I topped them off with a generous helping of toasted coconut.
The white chocolate on top stays soft, but not too soft and the coconut has a nice crunchy texture. The blondies themselves have toasted coconut and white chocolate chips inside, so I added all that goodness on top too made them pretty much irresistible.
