Orange Creamsicle Blondies

Oh, Orange Creamsicle Blondies where have you been all my life? If these don't bring back memories of childhood chasing the ice cream truck down the street, I don't know what will! I always got an orange creamsicle or a bomb pop! This is a great grown-up flavor of an old favorite!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup flour

For the White Chocolate Ganache

  • 10 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest

Instructions

To Make the Blondies

  • In a medium-sized saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the butter, sugar, chocolate chips, orange zest, and vanilla. Remove from heat and cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • When cool, transfer the melted mixture to a medium-sized bowl and whisk in the eggs. Once that is incorporated whisk in the salt, and flour until smooth.
  • Prepare an 8x8 baking pan by lining it with placement paper and spraying it liberally with cooking spray.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake in a 350-degree oven for 20-22 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  • While the blondies are cooling make the ganache. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips, orange juice, and orange zest. Microwave on high in 30-second intervals (stirring in between each interval) until the chips are melted.
  • Remove the blondies from the pan and place it on a drying rack (placed over a cookie sheet to pick up any ganache that drips). Pour 1/2 of the ganache over the blondies and let it sit for a couple of minutes until it starts to set, then pour the remaining ganache over the top. Let cool completely before slicing the blondies into desired sized pieces.
