These Cranberry White Chocolate Blondies are so moist and delicious. Loaded with white chocolate and cranberries these soft and chewy blondies are perfect for the holidays. 

Cranberry White Chocolate Blondies have the perfect moist center with the best crispy edges. These sweet treats will be the star of any holiday party.

The combination of Cranberry and White Chocolate is a match made in a blissful winter wonderland! These blondies can be eaten straight out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream, OH MY YUM! I’ve sprinkled mine with sea salt once they are baked DO NOT skip this step it brings together all the amazing flavors. You will taste sweet, salty, and tart, like a said a match make in a blissful magical wonderland!

To make Cranberry White Chocolate Blondies you will need:

  • electric hand mixer
  • medium-size mixing bowl
  • parchment paper
  • 8×8 baking tin

How to make cranberry white chocolate blondies:

This is an easy one-bowl recipe!

  1.  First, cream together your butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer. Then add your eggs and vanilla extract.
  2. Continue to mix those ingredients till combined. 
  3. Add in flour and baking powder, mix till just combined.
  4. Fold in your cranberries and white chocolate chips. 
  5. Transfer batter to your baking tin, the batter is sticky so spray hands with nonstick spray, you will thank me later, and even out the batter. 
  6. Bake 😊 

How do I bake a blondie:

I highly recommend using parchment paper in your baking tin! It makes for easy removal and clean up!

Also, if your using a glass baking dish your blondies will take an additional 18-25 minutes of baking time. It is easier to overcook blondies and brownies in a glass pan because it takes longer for the center to cook. My recommendation is to use a metal baking tin.
