White Chocolate Cranberry Bars with Dark Chocolate Chunks, Dark Chocolate Glaze and White Chocolate Drizzle


These are extremely rich and perfectly ''gooey'' so it's better to underbake them.

Ingredients

For Blondies: For Dark Chocolate Glaze:
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon dark corn syrup
  • 8 ounces Sarris 52% Dark Bloc Chocolate, chopped
For White Chocolate Drizzle:

Directions

FOR BLONDIES:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 13 x 9 x 2-inch metal baking pan. Line bottom with parchment paper; butter parchment. Melt 1 cup butter in heavy medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the white chocolate chunks (8 ounces) and stir briefly. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
  • Using electric mixer, beat eggs in large bowl until frothy. Gradually add sugar and beat until mixture is thick and pale yellow, about 5 minutes. Add melted butter- white chocolate mixture, vanilla and salt and beat until well blended. Add flour and beat just until blended. Stir in 16 ounces dark chocolate and dried cranberries. Transfer mixture to prepared pan. Using off-set spatula or rubber spatula, spread evenly, smoothing top.
  • Bake until tester inserted into center comes out with moist crumbs attached and top begins to color very slightly, about 35 minutes. Cool completely in pan on rack. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover pan with foil and store at room temperature.)
FOR CHOCOLATE GLAZE:
  • Bring cream and corn syrup to boil in small saucepan. Remove from heat. Add chocolate and whisk until melted and smooth. Spread chocolate mixture over bars in pan, covering completely. Chill until chocolate sets, about 30 minutes.
FOR WHITE CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE:
  • Stir white chocolate and 4 teaspoons cream in small saucepan over low heat until chocolate is melted and smooth, adding more cream by teaspoonfuls if mixture is too thick to drizzle from spoon. Using fork or small spoon, drizzle melted white chocolate in zigzag pattern over semisweet chocolate atop bars in pan. Let stand until white chocolate is set.
