White Chocolate Brownies

Our oldest loves white chocolate and with the recent extraction of her wisdom teeth, I thought I would try something she would enjoy. We ALL enjoyed them......Annie only had a bite or two. She pretty much stayed with smoothies and more smoothies. I did make one end with pecans and one end without - knew she better not have nuts! These remind me of a yummy blondie with yummy frosting!
