for the blondie layer:
➥ 125g Unsalted butter
➥ 125g Brown sugar
➥ 50g Caster sugar
➥ 125g Plain flour

decoration (optional):

METHOD
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line the square tin with tin foil.

2. Prepare the cookie dough by first blending the butter and sugar together with a electric whisk on a low-medium speed until it is light and fluffy.

3. Add the egg, vanilla extract and slowly fold in the plain flour until well combined. Finally, pour in the chocolate chips to the dough. Once everything is well combined, smooth the dough out evenly into the square tin.

4. Now it's time to make the white chocolate brownie batter. Using a electric whisk, cream the butter, caster sugar and light brown sugar. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and continue mixing until everything is smooth.

5. Next, sift in the plain flour and beat the mixture for another couple of minutes on a medium speed. Stir in the melted white chocolate then pour this batter on top of the cookie dough.

6. Bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven. Once the brownie is completely baked, leave aside to cool down before taking it out of tin, pour melted white chocolate on top and sprinkle more chocolate chips to decorate.
