20 Best White Chocolate Desserts
Unlike dark chocolate, which can be slightly bitter and very intense, these white chocolate desserts are sweet and creamy.
Since it doesn&rsquot contain any cocoa solids, white chocolate has a much different flavor profile, making it much more luscious and palatable to some people.
As far as desserts go, I don&rsquot think you can beat something with white chocolate.
As much as I love something rich and dark, it can be overwhelming in some cases.
With white chocolate, the other flavors can shine through, and raspberry is always a great choice, as is caramel!
Just because you&rsquore using white chocolate doesn&rsquot mean you can&rsquot have the same great desserts!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies
White Chocolate Raspberry Cookies with White Chocolate Chunks and Raspberries making Gooey, Chewy, and Delicious Cookies!
So, I realise that I am slightly Cookie Bar obsessed, and it kinda made me realise that I hadn’t baked actual cookies in a while. I made my Rolo Cookie Bars again recently for a youtube video, and I ADORE THEM SO MUCH, but I felt like I wanted an actual cookie and not the traybake version.
Luckily, I was in the mood for some baking and these were created and ohmydays they were dreamy. I used a very similar idea for the recipe as my Rolo Cookie Bars and Mini Egg Cookie Bars because I just adore how they work.
I changed the recipes up slightly, however, and wanted to make the cookie slightly thicker so that they didn’t spread. I often find with cookie recipes that don’t have cocoa powder in, the actual cookies can spread into thin awkward pancakes and its not pleasant.
Using the same base cookie recipe was alright, but adding in a little more plain flour, and swapping the sugars up slightly made them perfect. You need to have a chunky cookie in your life!! You can swap up the sugar if you want, but I love the mix of the light brown soft sugar, and the granulated.
I used Freeze Dried Raspberries in these the first time, as I just find it so incredibly easy. However, you can use fresh or frozen raspberries too! It does mean you have to deal with more moisture, but it can work well!!
You can use fresh raspberries, you just have to chop them up quite small, dry them with some kitchen towel, and expect your cookies to spread a little more. Working with frozen raspberries is actually sometimes easier because they don’t squish nearly as easily, giving you more time to work with them.
I find with the Freeze Dried Raspberries you can just whack them in and go straight to baking – but that’s up to you. I recommend using these freeze dried raspberries because the packet is so much bigger than the ones you can get in the supermarket. However, if you do want to buy from the supermarket I have bought them in Morissons, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose.
The best result for me (which is what is in the recipe) is a mix of white chocolate chips, frozen raspberries, and freeze dried raspberries. The best cookies ever come from this mix (which you can see in these photos) and I am in love! If you don’t want, or can’t use, freeze-dried raspberries, then use a total of 175g frozen raspberries.
I utterly adore the combination of Raspberry and White Chocolate, as the two flavours are just a marriage made in heaven. My White Chocolate & Raspberry Blondies demonstrate this, along with my extremely easy and simple Raspberry & White Chocolate Mousse recipe.
Honestly, the combination is one of my favourites, along with chocolate and orange, and mint chocolate! However, raspberry recipes always seem fresher to me! You can easily substitute any of my raspberry recipes with strawberry, and vice versa.
Along with changing the fruit up, you can also change the chocolate to milk, or dark – or anything else. It is entirely up to you! I personally use this white chocolate in all of my baking, but you can use any! If you’re a fan of Raspberry, this recipe is perfect for your cravings.. enjoy! x
White Chocolate and Raspberry Tart
Sift the flour and salt into a food processor. Add butter and whiz until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add hazelnuts, sugar and just enough egg to bring the mixture together - use the pulse button to help you. Shape pastry into a disc, wrap in clingfilm and chill for 30min.
Roll out the pastry, then press into the base and sides of a 20.5cm (8in) fluted pastry tin. Prick all over. Cover with a large circle of baking parchment and top with baking beans. Chill until firm. Preheat the oven to 190°C (170ºC fan) mark 5.
Bake for 12-15min until the pastry has set. Remove beans and parchment and continue baking for 5-10min until the pastry is dry and slightly sandy to the touch. Cool in the tin on a wire rack.
Melt the mascarpone and chocolate together in heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl doesn't touch the water. Don't stir, otherwise the mixture will thicken into a sticky mess.
Remove bowl from pan and set aside to cool completely. Meanwhile, lightly whip the cream. Fold chocolate into the cream. Spoon the filling into the pastry case and chill. To serve, top with raspberries and dust with icing sugar.
The combination of raspberry and white chocolate is one of my favorites.
I am traditionally a Thanksgiving before Christmas kind of girl. I wait until the day after Thanksgiving to pull out my decorations and put up my tree. But when it comes to Christmas cookies, that is another story. I pretty much experiment with Christmas cookie recipes all year and the urge has been strong the last few weeks to try out a few new recipes. I couldn’t wait any longer!!
If you’ve been following along with the blog here for any length of time you know that I have a weakness for the white chocolate/raspberry combo. I just can’t seem to get enough of it. Although you could use any flavor of jam you like with these cookies my favorite will always be raspberry although I think apricot would be a good choice too.
The base for this cookie is a butter cookie that is full of chunks of white chocolate. The cookie is soft in the middle and a little crisp around the edges. Just the way I like it. After they are baked (don’t overbake them!) Top them with your favorite jam and then drizzle with some more white chocolate. These cookies would be an easy one to make ahead for the holidays and freeze. Top them with the jam and drizzle with chocolate after you thaw them, before serving. Don’t freeze with the jam and white chocolate drizzle.
Not only will these be the most delicious cookies on your holiday cookie plate but they will also be one of the prettiest.

White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake (Copycat)
One of the most popular Cheesecake Factory recipes is now right at your fingertips! This Copycat White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake is delicious. You will stun your guest if you serve this at your next dinner party!
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs, such as crumbled Oreo cookies (filling removed)
- 1/3 cup butter, melted (I used a 1/4 cup)
- 1/2 cup raspberry preserves (I used a raspberry pie filling)
- 1/4 cup water
- 4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
- 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 5 eggs (I used 4 eggs)
- 4 ounces white chocolate, chopped into chunks
- Prep Time: 20 minsTotal Time: 1 1/2 hrs
- Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
- Create a water bath by placing a large pan filled with about 1/2-inch of water into the oven while it preheats.
- Combine the raspberry preserves with 1/4 cup water in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 1 1/2 minutes on high in your microwave. Stir until smooth. Strain to remove the raspberry seeds, then let the strained preserves sit to the side to cool.
- Measure 1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs into a medium bowl. Mix in 1/3 cup melted margarine. Press the crumb into a 9-inch spring form pan that has been lined on the bottom and side with parchment paper. Use the bottom of a drinking glass to press the crumb mixture flat into the bottom of the pan and about 2/3 the way up the side.
- Wrap a large piece of foil around the bottom of the pan to keep the cheesecake in the water bath. Put the crust in your freezer until the filling is done.
- Use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese with the sugar, sour cream, and vanilla. Mix for a couple minutes or until the ingredients are smooth and creamy. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl and then add them to the cream cheese mixture. Blend the mixture just enough to incorporate the eggs.
- Remove the crust from the freezer and sprinkle 4 ounces of white chocolate chunks onto the bottom of the crust.
- Pour half of the cream cheese filling into the crust. Drizzle the raspberry preserves over the entire surface of the filling. Use a butter knife to swirl the raspberry into the cream cheese. Pour the other half of the filling into the crust.
- Carefully place the cheesecake into the water bath in the oven. Bake for 12 minutes at 475 degrees, then turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the top of the cheesecake turns a light brown or tan color.
- Remove the cheesecake from the oven to cool. When the cheesecake is cool, use the foil from the bottom to cover the cheesecake and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
- Before serving, sprinkle the entire top surface of cheesecake with 2 ounces of shaved white chocolate.
