If you think, like I did, that white chocolate is kind of boring, one dimensional, and too sweet, make this caramelized white chocolate recipe and prepare to find a new appreciation for the white stuff. A couple of hours at a low temp and several stirs later, white chocolate is totally transformed. It becomes toasty and nutty with distinct caramel flavor. It turns from white to golden. Use it in place of dark or white chocolate in cookie, brownie, or blondie recipes, or just nibble on it whenever the craving strikes. It's so good. Let's make some.
To make this caramelized white chocolate, all you need are a few bars of really good white chocolate. Plus, a baking sheet and some time in the oven. It is a very hands off recipe, you will just give it a stir every once in awhile. Then, right before your eyes it will tranform.
There will be moments during this process where the chocolate looks kind of clumpy and like you've ruined it. I promise you haven't. Just have faith, keep stirring, and all will be as it should in the end.
What to do with your caramelized white chocolate
Add it to cookies or blondies. May I suggest these Brown Butter Blondies?
Add it to ice cream either chopped or melted into the ice cream base.
Snack on it!
