I’m a picky :: esigente dessert eater.  I usually don’t like cake-y textures, sugary frosting or most custard style desserts. There is one kind of sweet, though, that I simple can’t resist:  white chocolate chip brownies.

Something truly glorious :: glorioso happens when you combine rich milk chocolate with smooth white chocolate: the flavors harmonize and dance to a sweet melody in your mouth.

I can’t get enough of this dessert.  In fact, I only make these white chocolate chip brownies when I am cooking for a dinner party and know that they will be eaten by my guests; otherwise, I will find myself eating these brownies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Not kidding; they’re quite addicting, especially with a big scoop :: pallina of ice cream on top.

Speaking of dinner parties, here are some other great dessert options: blueberry and oreo mini cheesecakes, salted caramel cookie dough cake, or light(er) tiramisù parfaits without eggs.  All are super easy :: facili and have a gorgeous presentation.

Although some brownies have a cake-y texture which I absolutely despise, these instead are compact.  No pillows of air are getting in your way of great dense consistency and rich flavor :: sapore.

Mr. Italicano and I had gelato sundaes in lieu of a wedding cake :: torta nuziale, although two of my runners up were either brownies or mini cheesecakes served in mason jars.
