Mini White Chocolate Butter Bars

Warning: these bars are extremely gooey bars. For the first batch, I attempted to bake them in my mini brownie pan but unfortunately they ended up falling apart when I tried pulling them out. The taste was still great, however and though not completely intact, they were perfectly snackable. Yes, I just made up a word. Anyway, the second time around, I just made the rest of the batter in a 9×9″ pan and they came out fine.

Butter Cake

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package white chocolate instant pudding
  • 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1  1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk

Topping

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted, divided
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 bars (1.5 ounces each) Godiva Solid Ivory, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray mini brownie pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, instant pudding, and salt. Set aside
  3. Cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes, using electric mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Lower the speed and add vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, blending until the batter is smooth (do not overmix). Pour batter into prepared pan and spread evenly
  4. Beat cream cheese, eggs, 3 cups of the confectioners’ sugar, almond and vanilla extracts at low speed. Beat until smooth. Increase the speed to high and beat for 3 minutes. Reduce the speed to low and add the remaining confectioners’ sugar. Beat until smooth. Pour over batter and bake for 20 minutes or until the top is lightly browned all over. Cool in pan on wire rack for 30 minutes
  5. Drizzle the top decoratively with melted solid ivory

Then with the topping on top

And the final product :). These are not the ones that came out of the mini brownie pan, which explains why they look so presentable here
