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!

Recipe Review


  1. This is exactly how I make my blondies, same recipe (except I melt the butter rather than cream) and I swear it’s my go-to dessert recipe, always! I love that you put caramel on them. Robyn I would devour these! The brown sugar/butter/caramel – a match made in heaven! Pinned!

    1. Thanks so much, Averie! I’ve never tried blondies with melted butter. What a neat idea!!

  2. It’s like you knew I was craving dessert and now I’m going to be tortured for the rest of the night 😉

  3. Holy moly…these are insaaaaaaaane! I went a little crazy with the caramel so they are very buttery and moist. I love those crunchy candy bits that form. I didn’t have heavy cream on hand so I used buttermilk and baking soda and it was really good. I don’t want to share. Thanks 🙂

  4. I’ve never made blondies before, but mine don’t seem to be getting done. It has already been in 26 minutes and still “sloppy” in the middle. Did I do something wrong?

  5. I also made them,but it took 30 min to cook mine. They turned out great and delicious..thanks for the recipe..Brenda

    These were so good and because I had so much caramel left over, I decided the only sensible thing to do was to make more brownies! So I did. And they’re just as good the second time!

  7. Confused by the 1/4 cup caramel sauce (divided). Why am I dividing it when it only mentions in one place to add caramel sauce. What am I missing?

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      Sorry that is confusing. I divide the caramel sauce into tablespoons to drop into the blondie batter.

  8. Just made these last night and they’re delish! Doesn’t taste too sweet or salty perfect balance! The sauce was more difficult to make since the sugar began sticking to the bottom of the pan and I ended up splashing the melted butter and sugar on my shirt trying to scrape the sugar from the pot. Well worth it will make again!

  9. These are delicious! I added chopped chocolate on top.

    Question though…no baking powder?

    Thank you for the recipe!

    I made these for my husband and his crew at the firehouse, and boy oh boy were they a hit! thank you so much for sharing this awesome recipe it will have a forever home with us!!!!


  11. I have used this recipe twice now and love it. Always a hit at parties. I always double the recipe and bake in a 9×13 and I still have tons of caramel sauce left over – perfect on ice cream. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I store them just covered with plastic wrap or cut and stored under a cake dome – similar to how you would store brownies, if that helps at all.

  12. I just tried these tonight and they were delicious!!!!!!! I can’t believe this is my first time eating blondies. I feel like I’ve been living under a rock!!!!!! I added some crumpled pecans to one side to see if I would like it and I did so next time I make them I will add pecans to the whole batch!!!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Oh man, I bet those pecans just took it right over the top! YUM! So glad you enjoyed them!

    I just made your salted caramel sauce. How long should I let it cool before I make the salted caramel blondies?

    1. Hi Shelly,
      I generally just allow it to cool completely. You can put it in the refrigerator for a few minutes to speed up the process, if needed.

    Made these last night, daughter woke up this morning and asked why are over half the blondies missing? Then she ate one and fully understood! I stuffed this with Nuttela inspired by another Pintrest pin and they were awesome!!! Thank you for the recipe, i need more ways to use up a mason jar full of caramel sauce so another batch may be in the near future.

    This recipe is in the oven and baking now, although I did find a smaller batch recipe of carmel just so I didn’t have tons of carmel sauce running around. My question to you is, possible this had been asked before and I just missed while reading the comments. How on earth are you getting 12 servings from an 8X8 pan? Cutting them smaller, if so how?
    I usually cut my brownies (any recipe) big, so maybe that’s just my preferred method but an 8X8 is such a tight pan anyway, cutting them smaller seems just cruel to yourself and potential guests lol. So for my own sake, I’ll be cutting these large so the recipe will serve 8 people .

    Also, what would doubling the recipe do?

    Just made these –very rich but delicious, moist and chewy. I used an 8 x 8″ pan and thought they were a bit thin so I made a second batch the following day. I used the same pan, just doubled the recipe. The result is a much thicker blondie– but very different. More like a piece of cake…still tasty but I think I’ll stay with the thinner gooey version in the future.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it, Ann! I’m a fan of that sauce myself! 😉
      Thanks so much! 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 🙂

    1. I’m so glad you loved them, Jane. I really appreciate you letting me know about the issue with the ratings! xo

  18. Is there really no leavening agent? I added 1/2 tsp gaking powder but these were flat as pancakes.

    1. 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.

    Many thanks!

    1. 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.

  20. Ok you say Carmel divided but doesn’t really say why it’s divided. Does half to in the batter????

    1. Sorry that is confusing. I divide the caramel sauce into tablespoons to drop into the blondie batter.
