White Chocolate Raspberry Blonde Bars & FOOD FIGHT!

This is all happening TOO FAST! July is over and we are in our last month of summer!

This is our last food fight of the summer and I can’t believe that I will be gathering fall recipes soon!

LEMON recipes won last time and you can see them all in the Lemon Team post!

Before we go to the fight, I’d like to share something new to go with this month’s theme. Every Food Fight, I share something special  add to the fight. I’m sharing some amazing White Chocolate Blonde Bars that are topped with toasted almonds and white chocolate chips and then drizzled with raspberry reduction. Absolutely heavenly!

White Chocolate Raspberry Blonde Bars


  • White Chocolate Blonde Bars:
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup of butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 oz of melted baker's white chocolate
  • Topping:
  • 2/3 cup of chopped toasted almonds
  • 2/3 cup of white chocolate chips
  • Raspberry Topping:
  • 1 cup of fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of cornstarch mixed with a little bit of cold water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and grease an 8x8 baking pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg, vanilla, brown sugar and melted butter until well combined.
  3. Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk until all incorporated.
  4. Melt the white chocolate in a microwave on half the power, for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each set.
  5. Whisk the melted white chocolate into the batter until all combined.
  6. Spread the batter evenly in the baking pan and bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
  7. After the blondes have been baking for about 15 minutes, add the nuts and white chocolate.
  8. Raspberry topping: in a small sauce pot, bring raspberries and sugar to boil on medium heat while mashing the raspberries with a wooden spoon. Add the cornstarch mixture, while whisking constantly. Cook for a couple of minutes. Strain through a fine strainer to get rid of the solids. Cool until ready to use.
  9. Cool the bars to room temperature and drizzle with raspberry topping.

  1. What a tough battle with so many scrumptious desserts to choose from. Since I made and happily devoured the white chocolate cherry pie bars — and can certify that they are VERY delicious, I’ll vote for them!! :) The good thing about this battle is whatever side one chooses, it will be a yummy ending. Thanks for featuring my dessert here, Lyuba!!!!

  2. O M G !!!
    I think I died and went to heaven
    I can’t believe how many amazing-delicious-scrumptious desserts !!

    Your white-chocolate raspberry bars are screaming my name :)
    And I’m pretty sure I’m going to check almost each and every post here

  3. Thanks for including me! :)

  4. Oh my, I love these food fight themes! And, this one with both kinds of chocoIate are amazing! I am a fan of white chocolate all the way.

I’m headed over to snag these recipes (and share)!

  12. Hi Lyuba, I SO enjoy your Fights and Parties. I go and look and pin from them, but I’ve never participated because I don’t have a website (I don’t know how to set it up…wish I did). Does one have to have a website to share a recipe? I can see no other way, but if there IS one, how do info about it? Thank you sweetly!

    • Marysue, it’s very easy to start a blog! Almost everyone starts on Blogger. It’s very user friendly and a great place to share and “store” your recipes! Good luck, I hope to see you start a recipe blog :)

  13. These blondies look amazing. Normally I am all about milk chocolate over white chocolate but I love white chocolate and raspberry together. Have you ever had the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake at Cheesecake Factory? Omigawd. To die for.
