Biscoff Caramel Blondies


Welcome to another week of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats blog hop hosted by Meal Planning Magic! If you are a blogger and want to get in the Christmas spirit early this year, head on over to sign up!


The past two weeks that I've participated in this blog hop, I submitted cookie recipes. This week I wanted to switch things up a bit. Instead of cookies, why not make brownies? But not just any ol' brownies...blondies! What got me thinking about blondies was my intense craving for Biscoff Spread this past week. If you have tried Biscoff Spread, you know what I mean. That craving of just wanting a spoon and an unopened jar of smooth, creamy, goodness all to yourself. Because I get these cravings quite often, I usually buy my Biscoff jars in pairs. One for me, one for the recipes.


While I was enjoying my spoonfuls of Biscoff, I thought it would be fun to bake up a sweet treat featuring none other than the delicious spread. And what goes better with Biscoff Spread than caramel? Ok, I know pumpkin goes really well with it too but I've already posted a recipe on that (check out my Pumpkin Biscoff Cookies if you're curious). So, the next best thing to pair with Biscoff after pumpkin is caramel!


The combination of these two harmonious ingredients in a sinfully rich blondie makes for one heck of a dessert. These bars are just as tasty as they are pretty. Melt a few more caramel bits and drizzle the caramel sauce over the blondies if you want to get fancy. After all, the holidays are all about getting fancy and making big impressions. Don't go this holiday season without whipping up this easy, impressive, and oh so delicious recipe!

Biscoff Caramel Blondies (adapted from Rachel Cooks)
(9 blondies)

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup Biscoff Spread
1 egg
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup Kraft Caramel Bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Place butter and brown sugar in a medium sized pot. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in Biscoff Spread. Allow to cool.

Meanwhile, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix together.

Once butter mixture has cooled, add egg and mix until combined. Mix in vanilla extract. Stir in the dry ingredients and mix together until just combined.

Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Sprinkle caramel bits on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or blondies are set and golden brown. Cool in the pan before cutting into bars.
