I love finding great recipes off the back of boxes and especially chocolate chip packages! This fabulous recipe comes from the back of a package of Kroger’s Private Selection White Chocolate Drops. This decadent blondie is chocolate flavored since half of the white chocolate chips are melted and added to the batter. Then the blondie is filled with craisins, the remaining white chocolate drops and macadamia nuts. The original recipe calls for the macadamia nuts to be toasted although I didn’t bother with that because I needed these to be made in a jiffy!
White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Blondies are a spectacular recipe that you can prepare in about 15 minutes and bake in about 30. In an hour these delicious jewels are ready to serve! They are rich, sweet, and delightful. They’re also really easy and fairly quick without a lot of extra steps that a lot of blondies and brownies need to make them look so beautiful!
This is a great recipe to whip up for a quick dessert to take on a picnic or to a potluck or to give away to neighbors and friends. The trick is finding macadamia nuts. Whenever I see them on sale in the grocery stores I stock up so that I have them available for delicious recipes like this one. Treat yourself to this delicious blondie sometime soon.

11.5-oz bag white chocolate drops
5 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 large eggs

1 tsp. vanilla
