Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer combine melted butter and sugars until smooth.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until fully incorporated.
  4. Add flour and salt and stir until a smooth batter forms.
  5. Stir in white chocolate chips.
  6. Pour into baking pan into a even layer.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan then remove blondies from pan using the parchment paper to lift out.
  9. Once completely cooled, use a 3 inch shamrock cookie cutter to cut out shamrocks.
  10. To coat tops in sprinkles, melt white chocolate and then smooth over the top of the shamrock blondies in a thin layer. Top with sprinkles, tapping off excess. You will need about 1 tbsp of chocolate chips for every 2 shamrocks (if using a 3″ cutter). You should get 8-10 shamrocks from a 9 x 13 pan using this size.
