Pretzel Salted Caramel Blondies

May 13

Do you ever see a recipe on a blog or the internet that you need to make so badly that you don’t even pin it or bookmark it for later– you immediately go home and make it? Yes, this was one of those recipes.  The perfect combo of salty, sweet, and gooey. The recipe is originally from Averie Cooks, and I adapted my Pretzel Salted Caramel Blondies from Damn Delicious.

I also jumped on the bandwagon and joined the Leftovers Club. I am psyched to make goodies for the blog but then get them out of my house, so I don’t eat them all….but I guess I’ll still be getting other delicious goodies in return :)

However, if I made these pretzel salted caramel blondies, I don’t know if any would leave my kitchen….melt in your mouth delicious!

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large egg
  • 4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups broken pretzels
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free caramel sauce, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 tsp sea salt, for sprinkling
  • Servings: 24
  • Difficulty: medium


Preheat oven to 350 degrees . Lightly coat a 9 x 12 baking dish with nonstick spray.

In mixer, whisk together butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Add flour, stirring just until incorporated. Add pretzels, and toss to combine.

Spread batter into baking dish, and drizzle with caramel sauce.

Place into oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until fork comes out clean.

Remove from oven and cool. Drizzle with caramel sauce and sprinkle with sea salt.

Let cool completely before cutting into bars.

    Um yes, I have had that happen a few times…and I may just need to make these this afternoon! Ryan ADORES pretzels, and he’s had an especially long day at work. Sounds like these might just be in order! Thank you for sharing, Elizabeth!

      I feel that way about a lot of your recipes– except I never have the ingredients on hand. I need to remedy that!

  4. Oh my. I’d like to say that my family would love these, but I’m sure if I made them, that my family would never know about it. I’d eat them straight away! 😉 I’d love for you to bring these to Tuesday’s Table –
