Okay, so Salted Caramel Blondies are a thing around here. Like a major thing. We can’t seem to get enough of them.
Creamy, chewy, crunchy, and absolutely delicious, these salted caramel blondies are the perfect combination of sweet and salty and something that you just can’t get enough of. Well, at least I can’t.
I’ve made a little rule about these babies, actually. I only make them when I know that guests will be coming over or I’m taking them out of the house to friends or sending to work with the Mister. Otherwise, I know I’d grab a piece of these salted caramel blondies every time I passed by them in the kitchen.
A nibble here and a nibble there would quickly move right on down to my hips. And believe me, they don’t need any more encouragement! Heh!
So, whatdya say we make a pact? We’ll hold each other accountable where these blondies are concerned and promise not to eat the entire pan by ourselves. In other words, we’ll have each other over and share!!!
Doesn’t that sound like the best plan ever?
It sure does to me!
So, here’s my Salted Caramel Blondies recipe. Make ’em soon and enjoy every single solitary bite. They are worth it!!!

Had to double quantity as making for 9 people. Salted caramel sauce lovely.
So glad you enjoyed it, Ann! I’m a fan of that sauce myself! 😉
Thanks so much! xo
Nom nom nom. I’m a keen baker but I have to admit these are one of the best things I have ever made!
I’m thrilled to hear that, Amelie! xo
Made these tonight after dinner so I was in a bit of a hurry – I didn’t have the ingredients for the salted caramel sauce so I just left it out and just sprinkled a bit of coarse sea salt over top. I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9 x 13 pan and dang these are good! I can only imagine how much “more” they are with the sauce! This is a dangerous recipe to have in the house, they will disappear fast lol I want to give this recipe 5 stars….but it won’t let me. Thanks for a great recipe 🙂
I’m so glad you loved them, Jane. I really appreciate you letting me know about the issue with the ratings! xo
Is there really no leavening agent? I added 1/2 tsp gaking powder but these were flat as pancakes.
Jennifer, these blondies don’t have baking powder or baking soda in them. They should look the same height as in the pictures on the post. As you can see, they are not really thick. I’m not sure why yours are that flat.
Hi, I wanted to ask what would happen to the blondies if used split caramel sauce. I have a jar of homemade caramel in the fridge and I noticed that it had become split.
I’m sorry, Mariya, but I haven’t made this with caramel that has separated so I don’t know how it would turn out.
Ok you say Carmel divided but doesn’t really say why it’s divided. Does half to in the batter????
Sorry that is confusing. I divide the caramel sauce into tablespoons to drop into the blondie batter.
Hi. I don’t have caramel sauce but I have caramel pieces. Would they work in this recipe?
Pam, just click on the underlined salted caramel sauce in the recipe Ingredient list for the salted caramel sauce recipe. I haven’t made this with caramel pieces.
These are amazing! So quick and easy! And delicious! I will definitely get them out of the house quickly. I made my own caramel. It worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing!!
