White chocolate Blondies (Brownies) recipe. Delish!

I am obsessed with chocolate. I know, a lot of people are, but in my case, it's beyond any control. I can eat a 200g bar in a blink of an eye. I can do it everyday. I can eat half a jar of Nutella in one go. I want to eat it everyday. It's really really bad and I blame all my fatness to it.

When Mila, my daughter, was born 10 weeks ago, a bit premmie and with a lot of problems (I will discuss it later, I guess), on the high of my desperation in the hospital children's ward I decided to make a promise to the universe that I wouldn't eat chocolate until her first birthday, in exchange for her to get better. It would be really hard for me to give up, and was what I had to offer, like saying I prefer I will suffer instead of her.
I thought about promising for the rest of my life, but I just couldn't get myself to do it, and I am very ashamed of it.


In any case, it's not a disease , it's not an allergy, it's a promise. And being my promise...my rules. In my rules, white chocolate is allowed. I'm allowing it because white chocolate it's not the chocolate that I like. I like white chocolate, the same way I like Caramel, or Fudge, or whatever else is comparable...is just something else sweet.

So down to the Blondie...
I've been wanting to try a few brownie / blondie recipes, just to learn about it (I don't know enough about them) so I thought I would give it a go. I like brownie / Blondie recipes because you can hand mix everything and they are quick, not much of a mess to clean afterwards.

When I am trying something like a cake or a sweet, I read a few recipes, shortlist the ones I like and adjust to my way. I know baking you need to be precise with measurements, but I'm not doing something specific, I'm creating MY version of it, and then, it becomes specific to achieve that result, if that will make any sense?
All the recipes for Brownies and Blondies that I read are pretty much the same (or very similar) but the one that I basically based myself came from http://backforsecondsblog.com/ .

Here is what you will need:
prep time: 10 min
cook time: 25 min
serves: depends how generous you are. but usually between 8 and 12 pieces.

-120g of butter, cut in small pieces, so you can melt it easily
- 220g of white chocolate ( I used the regular cadbury white, because I have a friend that is fancy cook that told me you should always use "eating" chocolate, instead of "cooking" chocolate, but by all means, use whatever you prefer).
 - 3/4 cup caster sugar
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
-  2 eggs lightly beaten
 - 1 cup regular flour

Method:
Melt butter and chocolate in Microwave. Mix it well, add sugar to combine.
Once mixture is not so hot anymore, add the lightly beaten eggs and vanilla and mix to combine.
Then fold in the flour until combined.
Bake on 180C for around 25 min (when skewers comes out dry, you are good to go, remembering that it will continue cooking when is cooling down and if it's a bit raw inside no one really cares, after all is a brownie, and it will be chocolatey fudgy delicious).
