These sweet, salty, quick and easy One Bowl Salted Caramel Blondies are perfect for any summer party (or just any party or gathering in general!)
They’re super easy to make, taste absolutely yummy, and cleanup is a breeze!
Do you ever get invited somewhere and volunteer to bring something and then your mind goes completely blank on what to make or bring? This happens to me all the time, and I even have a food blog for Pete’s sake, so something delicious is expected. When I’m having one of those moments, my mind always wanders to these one bowl blondies…sweet blondies topped with ooey gooey caramel and a then the perfect complimentary saltiness from the sea salt. They’re always huge hit. They’re my fancy-yet-easy-go-to dessert. So let’s get started.
In a microwave safe bowl (and this is the only bowl you’ll be using) melt the butter a little, then add all the ingredients besides the toppings, mix, and spoon into a foil lined square baking dish (again, cleanup will be a breeze because you’re lining the baking dish with foil). Add the toppings, bake, and voila, delicious one bowl blondies!
What I love about this recipe is that it is so adaptable. Don’t have any caramel sauce on hand? Not a problem, use chocolate hot fudge sauce, peanut butter, chocolate chips or any type of candy, and top with sea salt.
- 1½ sticks butter (3/4 cup)
- 2 eggs
- 1½ cups flour
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 pinch salt
- For the topping:
- 4 tbsp caramel sauce (I use ice cream topping caramel sauce, Smuckers brand makes a great one called Spoonable Caramel Sauce and comes in a glass marmalade looking container)
- 1 tbsp sea salt
