Dulce de Leche Blondies
These Dulce de Leche Blondies are perfectly chewy and filled with a gooey caramel center. You might want to make a double batch, because these babies go fast!
If I’m anything, it’s a chocolate lover. It’s hard to get through the day without a little bit of chocolate, whether it’s a handful of M&Ms or my beloved Iced White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks (TOTAL addict over here). How about you? Are you a member of the chocoholics club, too? Or a fellow SB’s lover? 😉
Normally when I’m enjoying a brownie, the more fudgy, chocolatey, and decadent the better. Seriously, is there really such a thing as too much chocolate? But when I first saw this recipe for Dulce de Leche Blondies, I just knew they were going to happen. Have you ever had a blondie before? They’re like a brownie’s delicious second cousin, just minus the chocolate. They’re amazing, and even better when you spruce ’em up Dulce de Leche style. I mean, a layer of gooey caramel in the middle of perfectly chewy blondie layers? Goodness.
When I made these, I didn’t have time to photograph them right away, so I packaged them up to shoot the next day. I knew this was going to be hard on my husband, who does not like having to wait for pictures to be taken before he gets to eat something. ESPECIALLY when it’s dessert. So when he came home from work, I told him he could eat ONE. Well, I walked out of the room for a minute and when I came back… lo and behold, there he is halfway through his THIRD blondie! He claims he didn’t hear me say to only eat one, but the deer-in-the-headlights look he had makes me think otherwise. 😉 So just be forewarned, you may need to make a double batch of these. They don’t last long!
Dulce de Leche Blondies
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (14 oz) package caramels
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 baking pan and set aside.
- In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Add in eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Gradually add in the flour mixture, beating over low speed.
- Spread 1/2 of mixture into the bottom of prepared baking pan, using a spatula to spread evenly. Bake in preheated oven for 7-8 minutes.
- While bottom layer is baking, begin melting caramels in the evaporated milk in a medium sized saucepan over very low heat. Stir frequently until completely melted and smooth, about 10 minutes.
- Reserve about 1/3 cup melted caramel for drizzling over finished blondies. Pour remaining caramel over baked layer. Drop dollops of remaining dough over caramel layer, and swirl slightly with a knife. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack.
- When completely cooled, cut into squares. Reheat reserved caramel (I heated mine in the microwave) and drizzle over the top of the blondies. Enjoy!

I have to admit, I’m a huge chocolate lover as well. But it’s hard to go wrong with this recipe! Sooo good!
Oh my, these look so amazing!
I was looking for a yummy blondie recipe and this is it! Such rich and delish. The perfect recipe for fall.
This sounds delicious I love a good blonde so this variation would be great!
OMG these look incredible! I am addicted to brownies, because chocolate!, but I am also up for a good blondie recipe for when I’m around ppl who are less addicted to chocolate than I am. And the Dulce de Leche drizzle is the perfect finishing touch!
I am so sorry to have had a negative experience, but in case someone else has a similar experience I feel the need to be honest.
I read all the reviews and reread the page 3 times from top to bottom. I am positive that I followed the instructions to a tee. The only variable I can think of is a rainy day which often effects yeast baking, but I’ve never had rain effect a bar recipe like this.
It took me well over half an hour to spread the dough in the pan. I almost just put it all in 1 thicker layer. There just wasn’t enough and it kept separating making holes! The dulce on top of the parbaked layer made it worse as the bottom layer just sunk down. I just put small dots all over the dulce for a top layer.
By the end, my neck and shoulder is in excruciating pain! I freely admit to not being in great shape, but by the time it went in the oven to finish baking, almost an hour had passed – just putting it together! I had a family member clean up and take charge of pulling it from the oven.
It did taste nice, but we better enjoy it this time because NEVER AGAIN!
This is ridiculous! It took me all about 10 minutes to prepare it.
Ok I’m seriously drooling right now. How I wish I have a slice with my coffee. I must make this asap. I bet my boys will love these blondies too.
Yum, these look so delicious! I have been doing a lot of baking, will have to give these a try!!!
Oh heck yes, what an amazing dessert! I will be trying these for sure!
I’m going to make this recipe, but I was wondering if it would work with a caramel sauce from scratch (instead of packaged caramels)? The recipe I am going to follow has heavy whipping cream in it (for the caramel sauce), would that thicken and/or bake properly if I were to use it in your blondies recipe? Thanks for an awesome blondies recipe!
Yes, homemade caramel sauce would be super yummy in this!
Oh my goodness! These looks so darn good! It’s been ages I ahve made them and I had forgotten the recipe too.. 🙁 I have all the ingredients definitely trying them tomorrow!
