Caleb and Maxwell are complete opposites when it comes to looks. Caleb was born with lots of black hair and now has a full head of dark brown hair. He also has dark brown eyes. Maxwell has blonde hair and bright blue eyes. I like to say I have a brownie and a blondie. It works because they are both super sweet:) And of course I compare my boys to desserts. I am always thinking about sweets:)

Today, I am sharing my new favorite blondie recipe, Salted Caramel Butterscotch Blondies. I made these blondies because after calling Maxwell my little blondie I started craving blondies and had to bake a pan. Unfortunately, Maxwell couldn’t help me eat the blondies, he is still too little, but you can thank him for this amazing recipe. He is my blondie inspiration! 🙂

I love making blondies because they are easy to mix up and are made in a pan. You know I love my cookies, but sometimes it is nice to take a break from rolling cookie dough balls. With blondies, you just press the dough into one pan and you are good to go!

Maxwell was the main inspiration for these blondies, but I was also inspired by a jar of salted caramel sauce in the fridge and an opened bag of butterscotch chips I had leftover from making these cookies. I decided to put both to use and make Salted Caramel Butterscotch Blondies.

Prep Time
15 minutes
Total Time
50 minutes
16 -24 blondies


  • 2 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup salted caramel sauce
  • Sea salt for sprinkling over bars


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the melted butter and sugars together until combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix on low, just until combined. Stir in the butterscotch chips.
  4. Press half of the dough evenly into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula. Drizzle salted caramel sauce over the dough. Top with remaining dough and evenly spread out using a spatula. It's ok if some of the caramel sauce peeks through. Sprinkle blondies with sea salt.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top of the bars are light golden brown and the edges start to pull away from the pan. Cool bars on a wire rack to room temperature. Cut blondies into squares and serve.
  6. Note-these blondies are good served with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of salted caramel sauce.

  1. Haha, you have a blondie and a brownie. I get it. Still laughing. And I always think the first 2 kids in any family are total opposites in personality too, not just looks! I know mine are. Anyhow, these blondies look really good. I never think there are enough recipes that use butterscotch. Not to mention caramel on top.

  2. I hope my next baby is a blondie like me! It’s so not fair when mom’s do all the work carrying the baby and giving birth and they come out looking just like dad. In the meantime I think I can make these blondies for myself considering I’m a blondie… 🙂

  3. These sound so amazing!! Butterscotch and caramel are a match made in heaven. Your boys remind me of me and my siblings. All 4 of them are dark skin and dark hair- I’m pale with blonde hair 🙂

  4. At summer camp, butterscotch blondies were always my absolute favorite. Why do I have a feeling these might top the camp version, by just a tad? I can’t wait to try them!

  5. I made these for dessert yesterday subbing my gluten free flour blend for the regular flour. The blondies were amazing. Will definitely be making these again!!!
