Blondies are the blonder brownie. Get it? Seriously these are a favorite go to for a bar type cookie. They are quick to make, start with a simple base and soothe that sweet tooth fix. Add whatever you like to them be it dried fruit, any kind of chocolate chip, chopped candy bars or the like, or a combination of white chocolate chips and caramel pieces.
I wasn’t in the mood for a milk chocolate, semi-sweet or a dark chocolate fix and since blondies were on my mind white chocolate would do. But, it needed a little something more and these amazing Kraft Caramel Bits I had on hand were perfect.
I have used them before in my Cinnamon Apple Caramel Blondie Bars and my Brown Butter Sea Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles and they are perfect little nuggets of caramel. I can only find them at Target, but I am sure cutting up some caramels would be just fine as well.
If you’re looking for a warm, soft bar cookie these are right up your alley. And the buttery goodness mixed with the gooey soft centered dough is perfection. I like to bake them just a little under by a minute to keep them on the chewy side.
Start by getting that oven preheated to 350°. Line a 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving an overhang on the sides to lift the finished warm, delicious Blondies out.
Mix together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl, blend the melted butter, brown sugar, and vanilla together until combined. Add egg and mix well.
