Blondie Tips & Tricks

As written, these blondies are topped with a milk-based caramel sauce. However, feel free to substitute your favorite cream or condensed milk-based caramel recipe. For a faster shortcut, you can also melt Kraft caramel candies, or simply chop the caramels and place them on the top of the batter.

Instructions
Blondies
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter an 8x8" baking dish and set aside.
  2. Cream together butter, egg, brown sugar, molasses, salt, milk, and vanilla extract, mixing until well combined.
  3. Add flour to butter mixture, and stir to combine.
  4. Spread batter mixture into prepared pan, and set aside.
  5. Next, prepare salted caramel sauce (see recipe below). Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then drop by the spoonful onto the top of the blondie batter. Use a knife or toothpick to swirl caramel into the batter.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes (for gooey blondies) or 30 minutes (for firmer blondies). Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing into squares.

  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and water. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Once mixture comes to a boil, cook until it becomes a deep golden brown color. Be careful not to stir as the caramel cooks, or it may become grainy.
  3. Once a deep golden brown color is achieved, remove saucepan from heat. Whisk in sea salt and milk.
  4. Return saucepan to medium-high heat, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until thickened slightly.
