Cranberry White Chocolate Bars

When I was planning out my menu of goodies for the open house, I actually wrote down on my list “something with white chocolate and cranberries” but I didn’t have a recipe picked out. Within just a couple days Katie at Good Things Catered shared this recipe for a totally delish sounding cranberry white chocolate bar! Perfect!! I immediately added it to my list of treats. They did not disappoint – such a wonderful combo! Loved the little citrus tang in the background. Thanks, Katie, for sharing this recipe! 🙂

CRANBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE BARS (Recipe Source: Good Things Catered)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • zest of 1/2 orange
  • 1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 c. dried or fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 c. white chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat to 350 degrees and line an 11 x 7 pan with foil, coating with cooking spray.
  2. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, zest, nutmeg and set aside.
  3. In bowl of stand mixer, beat butter and sugar on high until soft and light in color, about 3 minutes.
  4. Turn mixer to low and beat in eggs, one at a time, and then vanilla until thoroughly combined.
  5. Slowly incorporate flour mixture.
  6. Remove from stand mixer and stir in cranberries and white chocolate.
  7. Spread batter in pan (it’s thick so use a spatula and be sure to remove all air bubbles).

  9. Cool on rack for 1 hours.
  10. Remove from pan and cut into bars.
