Cranberry Bliss Bars


Blondie Layer
3/4 Cup Butter Melted
1 1/2 Cups Light Brown Sugar Packed
2 Envelope Eggs
3/4 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 1/4 Cups Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries
6 Ounces White Baking Chocolate coarsely chopped
8 Ounces Cream Cheese softened
1 Cup Powdered Sugar Sifted
6 Ounces White Baking Chocolate Melted
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 13x9-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

2. Prepare the blondie layer: In a medium bowl, melt butter for one minute in the microwave; stir in brown sugar. Scrape the butter & sugar into a large bowl and let cool to room temperature. Use an electric mixer to beat in the eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; gradually add the dry mixture to the butter mixture. Stir in the cranberries and chopped chocolate (the batter will be thick).

3. Spread the blondie batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 18-21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (do not overbake). Cool completely on a wire rack.

4. Prepare the frosting: In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until well-blended. Gradually add half of the melted white chocolate; beat until blended. Frost brownies. Sprinkle with cranberries. Drizzle with remaining melted white chocolate. Cut into bars- square or triangle-shaped. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
