If I had a roll of yellow CAUTION tape at home I would have wrapped up the white chocolate chips I had a few nights ago. (I would also use it to wrap up dark chocolate chips, granola and almonds) because around those things I can’t control myself and I just keep grazing. It doesn’t seem like much when you are only grabbing three or four white chocolate chips at a time, but when you realize half the bag is almost gone all those chips add up!
I decided I had to bake with the white chocolate on hand because I can control myself with cakes and enjoy a piece, rather than mindlessly grabbing at the white chocolate all evening until its gone.
These bars were tasty but I think adding white chocolate chips to the batter would have taken them up a notch. I was hoping for the cake to have more of a white chocolate taste but the finished squares with white chocolate on top tasted pretty darn good (a lot better than the plain white chocolate chips!)
