These caramel blondies couldn’t be easier to make. I love a recipe that can be baked in a pan; it’s really hard to mess up. Mix up a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough, press half into the pan. Drizzle with homemade salted caramel sauce. Top with the remaining cookie dough, and bake. Cut into squares and share with family and friends; or keep it all to yourself— these are hard to resist! For an even better dessert, serve warm, topped with ice cream and more caramel sauce.
- Cook Time
- Prep Time
- 2 sticks butter or margarine, softened
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 cups chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup of salted caramel sauce, cooled
1. Prepare a salted caramel sauce and allow to cool.
2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13-inch pan with parchment paper.
3. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat the butter or margarine with the sugars until smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix again until smooth. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt; mix on low until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Press half the dough into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Pour cooled caramel on top of the batter, trying to keep the caramel away from the edges. Carefully drop and spread the rest of the cookie dough on top of the caramel. Bake at 350°F for 25-35 minutes.
Serve warm, cold, or at room temperature, drizzled with additional caramel sauce.
