Easy and Delicious White Chocolate & Caramel Blondies with Caramel Sauce and White Chocolate Chips!

This post may contain affiliate links. 

So, a very long time ago I had a Caramel White Chocolate Blondie recipe on my blog. It was something that I liked to bake, but it was probably the worst recipe on my blog, ever. I can comfortably say that, as more often than not, it didn’t work for other people. 

I never tended to personally have an issue with it, but maybe my explanation was off, or I was doing something extra without realising… but who knows. Either way, I binned the recipe off, and started again. Definitely better to fix it, rather than let people waste ingredients!

I do get requests for the recipe to come back often, but I won’t post the original one (partly because I can’t remember it now) and partly because I would much rather post a brand new version, that I have tested countless times, and I know works well!

These beauties were born from all of the experimentation. One thing I will say though… they are different to my other blondies such as my White Chocolate & Raspberry Blondies, and my White Chocolate & Pistachio Blondies. This isn’t because I dislike my other blondies, I love them, I just found this mixture works much better with the caramel because otherwise it’ll just vanish to the bottom. 

The Caramel is the tricky bit for the recipe, because whenever you bake with anything with caramel in, the caramel can explode, start boiling, and essentially ruin a recipe. I have tried countless times to get this bit right, and it finally works! 

My mind always thought that maybe the people who made the original blondies used a different caramel to me (As they can often behave differently), but we will never know! For this one, as the Blondie recipe itself is so different, it’s easier!

Recently I had someone ask what the difference between Cookie Bars and Blondies were as they thought they looked the same. I get that the bake can sometimes look similar, but the recipes are completely different!

Cookie Bars are literally just a cookie dough mixture, baked into a traybake instead of individual cookies. Blondies, are Brownies but without the dark or milk chocolate. For these, you don’t actually use any chocolate which automatically makes them Blonde in colour! 

Some people will be pedantic and say ‘they’re still brownies’ but they are in fact very delicious and sweet Blondies. That are incredible, and something not to be messed with! Yum. 

Anyway… instead of going overboard with the caramel like I may have done before – I decided to stick to a limit of 150g of caramel in the recipe. Too much, and it definitely doesn’t work. I’ve tried solid toffee style sweets, and they just melt and explode… and freezing caramel sauce balls doesn’t seem to work either. 

Therefore, I just went for making the blondie with white chocolate chips, and then swirling through the caramel on the top. It gives the blondies a pretty pattern, and also gives you just enough caramel so as not to ruin them, but so you can taste it. 

If your blondies are in the oven for far longer than the time says (you may have over mixed or your oven was the wrong temperature) then it may still go a little crazy, but I found it perfect. They are deeeelicious and I am slightly obsessed. I have more Blondie recipes coming soon because of the obsession. 

I have tested these bad boys many a time now, so I hope you love this new and improved recipe as much as I do! Enjoy! X

  • 200 g Unsalted Butter (melted) (see notes below)
  • 125 g White Granulated Sugar
  • 125 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 3 Medium Eggs
  • 275 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tbsp Cornflour
  • 200 g White Chocolate Chips
  • 150 g Thick Caramel Sauce


  • Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan and line a 9x9" square tin with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add your Melted butter and Sugars and beat till smooth.
  • Add in the Eggs and beat again till smooth.
  • Add in the Flour and Cornflour and beat till a thick blondie mixture is made - it really doesn't take long to create this mixture!
  • Add in your White Chocolate and fold through!
  • Pour the mixture into the tin, and spread. Dollop on the caramel, and lightly swirly through the blondie mixture.
  • Bake the Blondies in the oven for 30 minutes, or until there is an ever so slight wobble in the middle. (See notes below)
  • Leave to cool in the tin. Drizzle over some extra caramel if you fancy!


  • I've updated the butter quanitity to be 200g rather than 250g as it was occasionally being greasy for readers - if you liked it at the 250g quantitiy you can still use it!
  • The bake time can vary - please make sure your oven is on the correct setting, and check from 25+minutes and onwards till they are baked! These took 30 minutes in my fan oven. 
  • If they turn out cakey, they are over baked - that's all! Bake for a little less time next time.
  • One good tip if you aren't sure is to bake them till they have the wobble, and then once cooled, put them in the fridge for at least an hour to help 'set' them before cutting up! 
  • These will last in a cake tin for 4-5 days+ 
  • I keep them at room temperature. 
  • I used Carnations Caramel for the caramel - but do NOT add more than 150g to the mix unless you are 100% sure you've got the blondie mix right. If you add too much, it probably won't bake very well at all. 
  • The drizzle of caramel on top is completely optional!

    Hi Jane! I’ve just made these and they’re delicious, but they’re a tad cakey. I know you’ve said that can be because they’re over baked, but I only did them for 25 mins in a fan oven (because it can run a bit hot). Should I be cooking it for even less? I also used caster rather than granulated sugar because that was all I had in. Thank you! X

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 28, 2020 at 5:07 pm

      I find caster sugar can be a bit cakey which is why I recommend the granulated sugar – but also it can still be over baked slightly! x

    Hi I was going to give this a go, would I be able to use caramac in this recipe? Or would that not work?

    Thank You 😊

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 21, 2020 at 3:22 pm

      Often caramac doesn’t work the same as chocolate when you bake it – it will probably melt and then start to fry! x

      The caramel and Nutella together may cause some issues if there is too much, but otherwise, it should be okay.

    I love this blondie recipe, I’ve made it lots of times along with the Bakewell blondie recipe which is a favourite in our house.

    I know this recipe will keep for up to five days In an airtight box, but I’d like to know does it freeze?
    Thank you

    Hi Jane,

    I made these recently and they came out perfect, thank you! Would the same recipe work to put jam on top and swirl through instead of the caramel? I’ve always thought about doing a Jammie dodger traybake but not sure if this recipe would work well with the jam and then placing the mini Jammie dodgers on top or would this affect the bake?

    Thanks in advance!

    I just baked these in a larger tin ( one of those rectangular foil disposable ones) because I didn’t mind if they came out little less thick, I baked them for 23 mins and they turned into a cake 🙁
    If I wanted to use a larger tin again could I bake them for just 20 mins or even less?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      May 22, 2020 at 7:47 pm

      Yes the larger the tin, the quicker they will bake if you don’t increase the ingredients. The answer depends entirely on what size the tray is?

  • Becky
    May 16, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Can’t wait to try this recipe! Would it work putting half the mixture into the tin and swirling half the caramel, then the second half of the mixture with the remainder of the caramel swirled on top? Or would it only work with the caramel on the top?
    Thanks x

    • Jane's Patisserie
      May 17, 2020 at 9:07 am

      That will probably cause the caramel to sink too much – generally I just recommend swirling on the top! x

    I’m literally just about to bake these, however I’ve just realised I have no cornflour. Could I use something else or leave it out or is it best for me to wait until I have some?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      April 20, 2020 at 12:10 pm

      You can increase the flour by 25g, but the cornflour is designed for a nicer texture and bake so it can be a little different!

    Great recipe, never used a recipe of yours before and only feedback is that I fount it a little restricting and that it wouldn’t be better if you have a few different options, like I added caramel in the middle aswell as on top and out white chocolate squares in the middle. Cooking time was quite accurate for me, thanks.

    • Jane's Patisserie
      April 18, 2020 at 6:43 pm

      I’m glad you enjoyed them but I’m really not sure what you mean about a recipe being restricting? The recipe is listed and described as it’s meant to be, because it’s a recipe?

    • Jane's Patisserie

      Yes – the volume is 1/5th less roughly, so as it’s deeper, it could take longer.

      Have just made these with gluten free flour as it’s all I had in the cupboard (really hard to find flour these days!) and they look a bit cakey to me. I’ve heard gf can dry out a recipe, but as per recipe I may have left them in the oven slightly too long. They still look and smell amazing and I’m sure they’ll taste good too. A learning curve for next time x

    • Jane's Patisserie
      May 11, 2020 at 6:54 pm

      Hey! It could definitely be a combination of both – but I would suggest still using the same amount of flour, but definitely baking for less time! x

    Hi Jane, sorry if this is a stupid comment but the recipe states to add the melted butter and beat with the sugars until smooth but the ingredients just state butter and there is no step about melting the butter. Do need to melt it before beating with the sugars? Thanks.

      I wouldn’t say turning out like cake is a disaster – it just sounds like they are overbaked is all! The longer they bake, the more cake like they will be. Make sure to use the correct ingredients, and take them out a bit earlier!
