#Chocolate Party- Chocolate Caramel Blondies

Chocolate Caramel Blondies @ www.you-made-that.comHappy March everyone, we are getting closer to Spring and I can hardly wait. Winter time is okay for a little while but it gives me a big case of the blah’s and I find myself dreaming of warmer days with leaves on the trees and flowers in bloom. Even though I’m dreaming of Spring, I am happy that no matter what time of year it is I’m always in the mood for chocolate and caramel, oh yes, always. In celebration of chocolate I’ve joined my other blogger friends for a chocolate party. Each month we celebrate our love of chocolate by making a delicious chocolate recipe but to put a twist on things each month a secret ingredient is chosen to be used in the recipe. I was so happy it was caramel for March because I absolutely love it. I know there are lots of recipes for Blondie’s out there but this one is a little different because the butter is browned first which gives it a little bit of a nutty flavor and then the addition of the chocolate caramel candy makes them so irresistible. I’m telling you it’s really tough to eat just one of these bars at a time.

chocolate-party-logo-2[1]I know you want to run to your kitchen and make these easy little bars but if you are interested in joining us chocolate lovers then please do by linking your recipe below the rules are simple: 1. the recipe must be a new one, 2. the recipe must include the secret ingredient, 3. include a link back to this post or the Chocolate party page. Optional, add the Chocolate Party logo in your blog post or on your sidebar. For more information on the chocolate party check out my friend and organizer of the party Roxana at Roxana’s Home Baking.

#Chocolate Party- Chocolate Caramel Blondies

1/2 cup butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose-flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
16 Dove chocolate caramel pieces un-wrapped

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 350 degres F. Coat an 8 X 8 baking pan with cooking spray.
Step 2: Melt butter in small saucepan on medium low heat until it cooks and begins to smell nutty approx. 8 min., stir constantly so it doesn’t burn. Set aside and let the butter cool until it is warm not hot.
Step 3: Add the sugar to the melted butter and stir well. Now add the egg and vanilla and mix well.
Step 4: Add the flour, soda, salt and mix well.
Step 5: Spread half of the batter on the bottom of the pan, then put the chocolates on top of the batter. Add the remaining batter spreading over the top the best you can. It’s okay if it doesn’t spread perfectly it will bake up just fine. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 F.
Step 6: When done let cook in pan and cut into bars, 16 small bars or 8 large.

I’ve had a chronic case of spring fever myself – for several weeks now! These gooey-rich brownies would certainly cure even the worst wintery blahs! *Yum*

You and I both, winter needs to be over 🙂 Hope you get a chance to make these Valerie.

Whaaat! Look at those gooey blondies. I don’t think I could eat just one, either. Perhaps one pan but one? Nope. Not gonna happen!

10 Suzanne March 5, 2013 at 6:22 pm

Thanks Erin 🙂

11 Paula @ Vintage Kitchen March 4, 2013 at 3:05 pm

What a neat idea to mix caramel with a blondie dough. They are stunning!

12 Liz March 4, 2013 at 3:10 pm

Oh, boy, these are my kind of blondies! And I think I have some of those Dove chocolate caramels in my pantry…fingers crossed it’s enough for a batch!

Those blondies look sinfully delicious Suzanne! And I love the way the caramel oozing out like that. Yum!

17 Suzanne March 5, 2013 at 6:20 pm

Thanks Rowena, it was hard to not eat the whole pan at once.

18 Jean (Lemons & Anchovies) March 4, 2013 at 7:50 pm

Chocolate and caramel are such a magical combination and they look perfect together in these blondies. 🙂

Thanks Jean 🙂

Blondies according to one of the gourmet magazines is the “it” brownie of the season. And with a recipe like yours, Suzanne, I can see why!

21 Suzanne March 5, 2013 at 6:18 pm

Thank you, didn’t know blondies are the “it” treat for the season but I do know I loved these.

22 Roxana | Roxana's Home Baking March 5, 2013 at 9:13 am

I’m looking forward to spring as well, although there’s a snow storm coming my way later today. Fingers crossed it gets lost somewhere.
These blondies look great Suzanne! What a great idea to use caramel filled candy! MMM
Thanks for bringing them to this month chocolate party
