Ingredients

Salted Caramel Blondies

  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg , room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped pretzels
  • date caramel (see below)
  • salt flakes for topping (optional)

Date Caramel

  • cups Sunsweet® pitted dates
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond milk warmed

Instructions

To make blondies:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 8x8” pan with foil or parchment and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine melted butter and sugar. Once sugar has dissolved, add eggs and vanilla, whisking until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Pour dry mixture into wet mixture, mixing to integrate. Stir in white chocolate chips and pretzels, or mix-ins of choice.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth into an even layer.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes, until edges brown but middle still looks slightly underdone. Check to make sure a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Near end of bake time, make date caramel (see below). Drizzle caramel onto blondies when they come out of the oven. (I use a squeeze bottle for this!)
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting.

To make date caramel:

  • Combine everything in a food processor and blend until smooth, about 3 minutes. Add milk as needed to smooth out.
  • Use immediately or store in the fridge for later.
