Does anyone have any good white chocolate recipes?

I tried making “White Chocolate Brownies” from a recipe online, but they just don’t turn out right. All gooey and gross. Does anyone have any good white chocolate recipes, aside from cookies? I have a bag of Ghiarardelli White Chocolate chips and I want to make something really special for Valentine’s Day for my fiance.

Try the following which are all very nice
White Chocolate Coconut Kisses

For the muffins
2 oz (50 g) shredded coconut, as long-thread as possible
2½ oz (60 g) plain flour
3 oz (75 g) caster sugar
4 large egg whites
pinch of cream of tartar
pinch of salt

For the topping
9 oz (250 g) luxury Belgian white chocolate
4 oz (110 g) shredded coconut, as long-thread as possible
Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4, 350°F (180°C).

Light is the word here, so begin by sifting the flour, sugar and salt together three times, lifting the sieve high so as to incorporate as much air as possible.

Next whisk the egg whites in a large clean bowl, using an electric hand whisk, until floppy but not stiff. Then add the cream of tartar and continue whisking until you get quite stiff peaks that stand up when you lift the whisk. Now sift the flour mixture over the bowl and, using a large metal spoon, carefully fold it in, making sure there are no little pockets of flour that have escaped the folding. Finally fold in the 50g (2 oz) of coconut.

Next spoon a rounded dessertspoon of the mixture into each muffin case – it should come just above the top. Then bake them on the centre shelf of the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until they’re slightly risen, feel firm and are springy when touched with your little finger. They will turn pale gold but that’s okay. When they are cooked, remove them from the oven, let them cool slightly, then transfer them from the tins to finish cooling on a wire rack.

To make the topping, break up the white chocolate and place it in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, making sure that the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Then leave it to melt (which will take about 6 to 7 minutes). After that, remove it from the heat and stir until smooth. Now place the shredded coconut in a bowl and mix it with two-thirds of the melted chocolate. Then spoon the rest of the chocolate over the cooled muffins and make sure it goes right to the edges. Next, using two forks, make rough ball shapes of the coconut mixture and place on top of each muffin. Then leave them to set for about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how warm your kitchen is.
