Cinnamon Swirl White Chocolate Eggnog Bars

  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup eggnog
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Cinnamon Swirl

  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large, microwave-safe bowl, add the white chocolate and butter and heat 1 minute on HIGH power. Stir and continue to heat in 30-second intervals until melted. (Be careful not to overheat so white chocolate doesn’t scorch.)
  • Let cool for 5 minutes. Add the egg, sugar, eggnog, vanilla and whisk until combined.
  • Add the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Stir just until combined, but don’t overmix.
  • Scrape batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
  • To make the cinnamon swirl, stir the brown sugar, melted butter, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl until combined. (The mixture will be thick.)
  • Place spoonful’s of the cinnamon swirl mixture evenly across the top of the batter. Take a butter knife and swirl into the batter. (You can also use a small spatula to swirl it over the top.)
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean.
  • Allow bars to cool in pan uncovered for at least 2 to 3 hours before slicing. The bars get chewier as they cool.
  • *Bars will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for several days.
