These Funfetti Blondies are sweet and utterly delicious. They are packed full of white chocolate chunks and bright colourful sprinkles. They have a white chocolate drizzle too.
White chocolate is my absolute favourite I could easily demolish an entire bar in one sitting. So of course, blondies are my absolute favourite thing to bake, although weirdly I don’t seem to have many Blondie recipes. I promise that will change soon.
I’m not sure what the best way to describe blondies are. They aren’t made in the same way as a brownie and they are white chocolate instead of chocolate, but they do have a lovely gooey soft centre just like a brownie.
If you have signed up for my newsletter this recipe won’t be a surprise to you as we were celebrating Celebrations this month (it is my birthday month) and this was the sneak peek recipe you got access to.
If you have made it already, I hope you loved it as much as I did. Don’t worry if you haven’t signed up for my newsletter there is still plenty of time to sign up before September’s issue. You can sign up here.
If you haven’t come across anything Funfetti before you might be thinking what on earth is Sarah talking about?! Funfetti is basically when you add bright sprinkles to a bake to give it a lovely confetti look. Just like these Funfetti Cupcakes.
I will say though with Funfetti bakes is that you need to use good quality sprinkles. I use these ones from Iced Jems and they are perfect because they keep their colour after baking. A lot of sprinkles don’t so just be careful with what sprinkles you use.
I wouldn’t use a supermarket own brand as these normally aren’t bright enough. You basically want the brightest sprinkles you can find either 100s & 1000s, confetti sequins or jimmies and always read the reviews before buying.
Anyway, back to the recipe. To make these blondies I use a 9” Square Springform tin. I prefer a springform tin as I always find it easier to get them out at the end. If you don’t have a springform tin don’t worry just ensure that your parchment paper is taller than the sides of your cake tin so you can easily lift them out after baking.
Depending on the size of your cake tin If you use a smaller size, then your blondies will be thicker than mine, but you might also find that they take a bit longer to bake in the oven. If you use a larger cake tin, then keep an eye on your blondies as they will cook a lot quicker.
To start with cream together the butter and sugar. In this recipe, I used light brown sugar as it gives the blondies a lovely caramel flavour but also makes them lovely and soft and gooey.
Once you have creamed the butter and sugar next add in the eggs, flour, vanilla extract and mix again. Once all the mixture is incorporated add in your white chocolate chunks and sprinkles and mix again until they are evenly distributed.
Pour the mixture into your cake tin and bake in the oven.
How Do I Know When the Funfetti Blondies Are Baked?
Okay, so it can be a little tricky to tell when blondies are baked because if you test them with a skewer then the skewer will come out with batter on it. This is completely normal we want the blondies to be gooey in the centre.
The best way to know if they are ready is that they should be golden brown on top. If you take them out of the oven and gently shake the tin if the blondies wobble a lot, then they aren’t ready. If there is a slight wobble and they are looking a little dry on the top, then they are ready!
Leave them to cool completely in the tin.
Once they have cooled remove them from the tin and leave them to one side.
Add the chocolate to a large bowl and melt in the microwave on 20-second bursts stirring in between each burst until completely melted. Pop the chocolate into a piping bag with a small round nozzle or if you are using disposable piping bags just snip the tip of the bag off.
Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the blondies and sprinkle over the sprinkles. Once the chocolate has set cut them into individual slices.
To make these just normal blondies just remove the sprinkles.
You can also experiment with these as much as you want. Why not try adding in some chocolate chips or a spread like Biscoff.
