  • 3/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 6 ounces white baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest, optional
  • 6 ounces white baking chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter; stir in the brown sugar. Cool slightly.
  2. Add eggs, 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; stir into butter mixture.
  3. Stir in cranberries and chopped chocolate (batter will be thick). Spread into a greased 13x9-in. pan.
  4. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (do not overbake), 18-21 minutes.
  5. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. For frosting, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and, if desired, orange zest until smooth. Gradually beat in half of the melted white chocolate; spread over blondies.
  7. Sprinkle with cranberries; drizzle with remaining melted chocolate.
  8. Cut into triangles. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Sounds like a good one! with all the milk chocolate around the holidays it’s tough to find my son something (he doesn’t like milk chocolate) so this would be something the whole family would enjoy.
