White Chocolate Lemon Streusel Bars

I’ve been rummaging through some of my old recipes lately, and stumbled across this little gem.
These White Chocolate Lemon Streusel Bars are highly underestimated.

I think it gets glossed over because of the long name and the word “streusel” in the title.
But trust me: you do not want to miss out on these bars!!!
Just imagine a lemony, white chocolate-y, cheesecake-y center with an oats crisp topping.
Oh, and a phenomenal crust.
You’re going to love it.
White Chocolate Lemon Streusel Bars
 Recipe Source: Hershey’s
 Ingredients:
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 cups White Chips, divided
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg

 Instructions:

  1. Using a paddle attachment in a stand mixer, mix together the butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Scoop out 1-2/3 cups of the mixture, and add 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips. Mix in with a fork. Set aside.
  3. Add an egg into the stand mixer and mix well. Scrape the batter into a well greased 9×9 baking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk and the lemon juice. Mix in 2 1/2 cups of the white chocolate chips. Pour this mixture over the crust batter.
  5.  Crumble the remaining dough over the top of the sweetened condensed milk mixture.
  6. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes. Let cool completely before serving (I like mine chilled overnight!).

    Greetings from Sherman Oaks, California. If possible, I would like to know if there was a typo regarding the white chocolate chips. The recipe calls for 2 cups “divided”…..but in step 4, it says to add 2 1/2 cups chips, which is more than the original ingredient amount itself.
    Thank you,
    Jeff

    I am right in the middle of making the recipe and ran into the same problem as Jeff regarding thw white chocolate chips. Guess I’ll just add about 1 cup and see what happens.
