pumpkin salted caramel blondie recipeAre you tired of salted caramel or pumpkin yet?  Me, not so much.  I pretty excited that it is pumpkin and apple season.  I love the way my house smells when I bake with spices and these fall flavors.  And seriously, these blondies are the real deal.  Moist, delicious, spicy, and salty, all rolled into one tasty treat.  William went crazy for these.  He was actually upset when they were all gone.  If you do not use homemade caramel sauce, use a store bought sauce, but add a teaspoon or so of sea salt for the full effect.  Fall is here, and I could not be any happier about it, and these blondies are my way of celebrating my favorite season.

I have a question for you.  Are you a TV lover?  I am.  Have you fallen in love with any new shows this season?  What are you watching these days?

  14. I want this, RIGHT NOW. I love pumpkin. These look fantastic.

  15. Ronda says:

    Oh gracious, these look amazing. I busted out my fall scented Bath and Body Works candles which really bring my brain into the fall season. I am in Joplin Missouri and it is still a little warm out to really have the full fall effect. But we will get there soon enough. As far as TV Shows go I have been catching up via Netflix on Hoarders…nothing makes me want to keep my house super clean/tidy/decluttered like that show right there. Good motivation!

  16. Alyssa says:

    I am DOOMED! These look absolutely sinful. Stick a fork in me now! Thanks for sharing this!

  17. Bree, I bet your house just smells divine! As for TV shows, I hear there are a lot of amazing Fall shows this year but unfortunately we are seasons behind in Amsterdam with the latest American TV :( Boo!!

  18. Caramel Sauces really have the full fall effect.

  19. Emily Divan says:

  21. oh YUM!! are these pretty cakey?

  22. Bree, You are very slowly but surely ensuring that I have a container of heavy whipping cream in my fridge at all times. I’m going to make your salted caramel sauce for the first time this afternoon for use in a different dessert but these pumpkin blondies are right up my alley. They’re going on the baking list next! Guess I am going to need a lot more cream. . .

  23. Natalie says:

    Holy Moly these looks good! I could eat the whole batch, great combination of flavours. Yum!!!

  24. I drooled on my computer at work. Holy yum.

  25. These sound wonderfully sinful! My girls are going to go crazy when I make them next week. Thank you for the inspiration.

  28. Lisa says:

    These were super tasty, although they came out more like a pumpkin spice cake/sticky pudding pan of goodness. I put them in a bigger pan and the 10 min didn’t do the trick, but I went with it anyway, threw the caramel on and then kind of dolloped on the remaining dough. The hubby loves them. Has a great fall flavor. Thank you for sharing!!

  29. Are you serious? Caramel baked right in the center! Okay I am definitely trying these ASAP. I am a huge TV lover and I am sad that this is the last season of Desperate Housewives.

  30. […] and you have the perfect meal, in my opinion.  Want to make it even better? Finish it off with this recipe for Pumpkin Salted Caramel Blondies, which I am dying to try.  Hungry yet? […]

    Oh, my goodness . . . this recipe is why I gain weight in the fall. I LOVE pumpkin baking. I’ll let you know how it goes! I’m watching ABC Family shows . . . The Lying Game & Switched at Birth. And, Person of Interest.

  32. Brandi says:

    These look awesome. What is on the top at the end? Powdered sugar, sea salt? Love your blog!!!

  33. Melissa says:

    These are even great gluten free! I made them with Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Mix and 1 tsp xanthum gum. Thanks for posting this great recipe!

  34. […] much of a good thing is still a good thing in this rich dream of dessert from Baked Bree. These Pumpkin Salted Caramel Blondies are a celebration of flavor, offering just the right amount of salty, sweet and spicy sensations. […]

  35. True to my word, these are in the oven right now. I’m dying with anticipation. Just wanted to let you know the salt and baking powder aren’t mentioned in the instructions. I assume we are to add it to the flour and cinnamon mixture in Step 1?

  37. Lindsay says:

    I really & truly agree with the comment made above that this carmel sauce could make a shoe taste good. The blondies are a-mazing, in every sense of the word, but, my-oh-my, the sauce! Before I pour the carmel sauce over it, I just stand at the counter smell it. After I pour the sauce over it, I lick the spoon like I’m 6 years old. Bree, I will be sending your family a Christmas card for the rest of my life, thanking you for sharing this recipe with the world :)

  38. Sarah says:

    I made these today and almost died from their awesomeness. That caramel sauce is amazing. Thanks for the recipe!!

  39. Jordan says:

    these are in the oven now, but I just realized the soda and salt were not included in the printed recipe portion. Let’s hope they turn out. :(

  41. Bella says:

    well. you’ve done it again.
    i just found your blog a few days ago off foodgawker.com. ive looked at TONS of blogs over the past few years due to this “slight” obsession i have with internet food porn. your blog is BY FAR one of the best and these blondies just about prove it. you’re pretty incredible, Bree!! please don’t stop!! :) thank you!

  42. […] Pumpkin blondies with caramel: Swoon!! Made these and devoured them over the course of a weekend. Be prepared for a more muffin-like texture than a "blondie" but still worth the effort!

  43. Julia says:

    Um yum. I can’t get over the caramel sauce IN the blondie.

  44. Suzi Hall says:

    Just finished making these. I used commercial sauce which I think was a mistake. I agree, 10 minutes is not long enough for the first layer. I had a gloppy mess and they don’t look anything like your beautiful bars but they are still yummy! I’ll try again and make your sauce; that may make all the difference.
