{RECIPE} Salted Caramel Blondies

by Jillian Leslie on


Molly Allen from CakeFYI has developed another awesome treat for us!! It you're into salted caramel, you will love this...

There’s absolutely no denying that the salted caramel trend is here to stay. Today, I wanted to give you a simple blondie recipe, but with a kick. I drizzled them in sweet and salty caramel sauce and topped them with coarse salt for that authentic salted caramel look. Talk about the perfect treat!

Salted Caramel Blondies

Makes 9 Blondies with Salted Caramel Sauce


  • 1/2 C Butter, melted
  • 1 C Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 C Flour



In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Beat melted butter and brown sugar together.


Add the egg.


Gradually add the flour mixture to the brown sugar mixture and mix until well combined to form a thick batter.


Spread batter into a greased, square pan.


Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Allow blondies to cool in the pan on a wire rack. While blondies are cooling, prepare Salted Caramel Sauce.

Salted Caramel Sauce


  • 4 Tbsp Butter
  • 3/4 C Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 C Milk
  • 1/2 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Tsp Salt


Melt butter on low in a saucepan. Once melted, add brown sugar, milk, and vanilla and whisk well. Cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Do not stir the sauce until it has boiled for 5 minutes.


Remove the sauce from the heat, add the salt, and whisk well. Transfer the sauce to a mason jar to let cool.

Once blondies have cooled, whisk 1 Tbsp of Powdered Sugar into the Salted Caramel Sauce. Drizzle Salted Caramel Sauce over blondies. Sprinkle with course salt. Enjoy!
