Polka Dot Brownies Recipe

I just started to become interested in baking. I’ve tried bread, cornbread, Toll House Cookies and brownies. I found a good Brownie recipe in James Beard’s “American Cookery” and added white chocolate chips. I made these for a friends house warming party and everybody loved them.


4 ounces unsweetened quality chocolate (Ghirardelli)

3 eggs at room temperature

1/2 cup butter

2 cups sugar

1 cup white chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup sifted all purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

Melt chocolate in a pan over very low heat. In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar. Creaming butter and sugar is a process of mixing together with a mixer. Stir in melted chocolate and beat in eggs and vanilla with your mixer. Quickly stir in your flour and salt and white chocolate chips. Spread batter into a well greased and floured 8×10 or 9×12 inch baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 40-45 minutes. Do not over bake   Remove from oven and let cool. While still a little warm cut with a very sharp knife into squares.

Tip: If you don’t grease/butter and flour your pan; this is what happens. See photo below.

Tip: Use parchment paper in your pan instead of greasing and flouring your pan. The Brownies lift right out! 

Never drink Bourbon while you bake; I knew I forgot something. Always butter and flour your cake pans!
