  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  2. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, 20-30 seconds at a time until just completely melted. Set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, using a handheld mixer, blend the cream cheese and sugar together. Then add eggs, one at a time, mixing in between. Combine sour cream and vanilla into the batter. Lastly, add the white chocolate and blend until smooth.
