When I think of brownies and bars, the blondie is one that immediately comes to mind. Flavored with brown sugar and butter that caramelize so perfectly in the oven for one delicious bar dessert with a hint of salt and caramel in this version.
Can’t remember the first time I tasted a blondie, but I do remember how awesome they were. Additionally, they are perfect for a bake sale item or something to make that is quick and easy to whip up.
Caramel and Coffee
For this recipe, I use a little help from the grocery store in the form of salted caramel chips. Boy, are they delicious. Interesting, that I have never seen these before and it was purely accident I found them.
Immediately once given these a try out, you can taste the richness of the caramel then that slight hint of salt surfaces and your mouth is just so happy! Perfectly matched with a cup of coffee.
Formulating the recipe, my inspiration was my coffee house favorite, Iced Caramel Latte. To get this up to speed, I add coffee extract or flavoring instead of vanilla and it really taste like a coffee shop favorite. The flavors really work!
For this coffee lover’s blondie, I like to use one of these brownie copper pans. Ideally, this is perfect for individual servings that come out clean and crisp. Additionally, you can slice these along the diagonal to get additional servings and shapes.
