I have mixed feelings about white chocolate. If you’ve followed BoB for a while, you’ll know that I usually tell you how much more I like dark chocolate than white chocolate.
I don’t think I’m alone there, am I?
But, honestly, I was convinced for a long time that I didn’t like white chocolate at all. Then, I had this epiphany that I’d had a lot of white baking chips and the like.
Notice the lack of the word “chocolate.” See, that’s the thing. There are a lot of products out there that seem like white chocolate, but they really aren’t. For-real white chocolate is a different story.
If you like those white baking chips and squares, then that’s great. But, if you don’t, then give white chocolate a shot. Just look for the word “chocolate” on the package and cocoa butter in the ingredients list.
All that being said, you still aren’t likely to find an all-out white chocolate recipe on BoB. I like to tame its sweetness by using it along with other ingredients. Here are a few of my favorite recipes that feature white chocolate.
These Blueberry-White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies were born during a bout of spring cleaning. I couldn’t have been more please with that happy accident. These hearty cookies are both sweet and tart. You can add salty to the mix easily with a sprinkle of coarse salt.
