Cherry White Chocolate Brownies

Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021

As this recipe gets posted, we are almost finished with all of our Christmas baking this year. Whew! It’s kept us busy for the month of October and even into November. I have an upright freezer filled with over 3,000 cookies, and a smaller freezer with another 1,500 or so, plus cookies, cakes, pie, breads, sweet rolls and muffins! Cherry White Chocolate Brownies were one of my favorites.

Paradise Fruit Company sent me quite a selection of their fruits to try out in recipes. So I had a lot of fun making lots of new recipes for the holidays this year. I used their red cherries in this recipe. I added coconut, pecans and real white chocolate chips to the batter. It’s hard to find real white chocolate chips in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. You can get vanilla chips or premiere white baking chips. The only stores that carry true white chocolate chips are Kroger (private selection) and Trader Joe’s! But white chocolate adds breathtaking flavor to these brownies in my opinion.

Cherry White Chocolate Brownies are rich, decadent, festive and elegant enough for any holiday or Christmas party. I recommend them for Christmas Cookie Exchanges, too. The gooey texture will have you salivating from the first bite. If you enjoy cherries, the flavors mingle together really well.

If you want to wow your family and friends this holiday season, bake up a batch of these goodies. Watch them disappear!

If making a single batch, spread into a greased 9×13″ glass baking dish. This picture shows a double batch of the cookie dough. I spread it into a greased 12×17″ baking pan. Pat the mixture down into the pan with moist hands.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter softened (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp. half-and-half or milk
  • 1 tsp. real vanilla extract
  • 2 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (Bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped Paradise candied red cherries
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 11.5 oz. bag white chocolate chips NOT vanilla chips or premiere white baking chips

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream brown sugar, butter, egg, milk, vanilla, salt and baking soda.
  • Fold in flour, cherries, pecans, coconut and white chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.
  • Pat the mixture down into a greased 9x13” glass baking dish. (I had to keep my hands moist to do this).
  • Bake at 375° for approximately 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

NOTE: If desired, sprinkle an additional ¼ cup chopped cherries on top before baking.
NOTE: I wet my hands before patting the mixture into pan.
NOTE: I made eight batches of this recipe. I put two batches in greased 12 1/2x17 1/2” cookie sheets. I rotated cookie sheets on racks after 15 minutes of baking time. Each 12x17” cookie sheet yields 48 brownies.
NOTE: Since I was baking 12x17” cookie sheets, the brownies took about 35-37 minutes to bake until done.
