Caramelized White Chocolate Brookies

caramelized white chocolate brookies

Caramelized White Chocolate Brookies reflect how rare it is to actually be eating whilst typing up a recipe, but you can’t underestimate the importance of how cookies helped me through this year and these are but one type of cookie which when warm have a consistency of a single serving of brownie, despite the odd brookie title.

That in and of itself is an accomplishment considering I spent several years failing miserably in brownies making. Yet, here we are in 2020 and something went right! Have you ever made your own caramelized chocolate friends?

It’s cookie season (how it’s just a season is beyond me as cookies are all year round)! These are slightly different than many I’ve seen popping up online and they feel decadent and are definitely moreish (they were gone with three of us eating them in 24 hours) so if you’re putting together a cookie box, add these to the list to share out there, though maybe double the recipe so you can set aside some for yourself to enjoy.

Brookies are a term I’ve seen thrown around a wee bit in recent times, and though it’s a weird old word, these actually taste and have a fudgy interior in a way like a brownie that a cookie or biscuit usually doesn’t. I imagine if you put this dough into a brownie tin, you’d end up with a tasty result after 15 minutes so if you’re inpatient and want to try this, definitely give it a go.

Caramelized White Chocolate Brookies Notes

Caramelizing white chocolate is something I’d only heard of and not tried before and it’s something that seems kind of difficult from afar, but honestly, all you need is a good timer, some white chocolate and these here directions from David Lebovitz who had the best instructions for this here newbie.

Surprisingly the mix of caramelized white chocolate and white chocolate don’t make these super sweet, but the cocoa powder used in this is super high quality and has a dense flavor profile bringing the overall sweetness of other things down.

If you can’t be bothered caramelizing white chocolate feel free to use regular white chocolate instead, they’ll still taste great!

Despite making these several times, the consistency of these were the same each time and I anticipate this is due to the ratio of cocoa powder in these, if you halved the cocoa powder you might end up with plain old chewy flat cookies, though I make no promises and would love to know if you do make them this way.

Note: The caramelized white chocolate needs to be set for these so it’s best to make the white chocolate the day prior. And if you want a finish with lightly melted chocolate like my photos, keep a few pieces of white chocolate aside to pop into the baked cookies once removed from the oven.

    Welcome to Roamingtaste

    Hey there and welcome! Created in 2012 and as the name suggests this website was created to capture some of the foreign dishes I had discovered on my travels at a time when I needed to stay still for a while.

     

    You will likely find dishes you might not have heard of or eaten on your own adventures and most require ingredients you likely already have and are unfussy because foreign food doesn't need to be complicated.
