When we crave chocolate, rarely do our minds first go to white chocolate. Why is that? I think many of us simply do not know how to use it in our cooking and dessert creations as creatively as we know how to use milk or dark chocolate. That all ends today though because we are going to be checking out and learning about some incredible ways to use white chocolate in our day to day desserts that will not only inspire us to bake differently, but also to surprise our guests more often with unpredictable desserts. From Fudge to Cupcakes, we have all the recipes that will put our traditional classics to shame.

1. White Chocolate Reese’s Fudge

Do I even need to explain why this is a good idea? Don’t let the idea of regular chocolate go completely with this scrumptious recipe. A little bit of everything is in this fudge so you don’t have to make the decision between chocolate and white chocolate and peanut butter. You can enjoy them in a beautiful, harmonic symphony of flavors.

2. White Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla and Blackberry Buttercream Roses

Have you ever seen a prettier cupcake? These cupcakes look like vanilla treats, but they are actually white chocolate! With the hint of vanilla in the background and a little sweet blackberry, you’ll forget what regular chocolate even is by the end of this treat.

3. White Truffle Cake

I always love rich, decadent desserts that will have a lasting effect in my memory and on my tastebuds. This cake is perfect for cheesecake and chocolate lovers alike, but still provides a level of unpredictability to dessert.

4. Vegan Elderflower Cake with Lemon Curd & White Chocolate Frosting

Cater to the masses with a vegan elderflower cake with lemon curd and white chocolate frosting! No one will know you have left animal products behind due to the unique flavor and sweet frosting.

5. White Chocolate Oreo Truffles

Usually you eat the chocolate first and then the creamy center of an Oreo right? Not today! This oreo truffle is coated with white chocolate on the outside and a dark, rich flavor on the inside.

6. White Chocolate Lemon Cheesecake

Give me all the cheesecake! White chocolate lemon cheesecake sounds like the perfect marriage between those fruity dessert lovers and the die hard chocolate fanatics.

7. Homemade White Hot Chocolate

Did you know you can drink white hot chocolate? Well of course you probably thought about it since you’ve probably had hot chocolate before, but instead of having regular chocolate swap it out for white chocolate with a caramel drizzle on top.

8. White Chocolate Brownies

YUM. These brownies are anything but the color brown! White-ies maybe? Either way, this dessert is so memorable because of it’s versatile nature. Crumble it up and add it to some chocolate ice cream, or serve all on it’s own. You can also add this to a milkshake to add more flavor!

9. White Chocolate Raspberry Scones

Needing a new scone recipe? One of my favourite things to pair with white chocolate is raspberries! The tart flavor of raspberries is toned down nicely with the gentle white chocolate flavor to make a perfect flavor for dessert or tea.

10. White Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes

Mmmm, I can’t wait to try out this recipe. The shaved candy canes on top remind me of a light snowfall. Much like raspberry, peppermint can be a strong flavor but when paired with white chocolate, it’s simply perfect.
