Caramel Apple Blondies
Summer is nearly over... which is bittersweet. As much as we love ice cream and fruity treats and the heat, we can also hardly wait to re-live the tastes of fall: cinnamon, apples, caramels, sweet brown sugar.... so delicious! So in spirit of the fall upon us (soon), we decided to make caramel apple blondies!
These treats are a huge favourite on our team. It like eating soft apple pie! But then that candy caramel chew, from the coconut condensed milk (of course) adds a whole other level of delicious. You can make your caramel using your favourite vegan caramel sauce recipe as well- it'll still work.
If you are just not ready for fall, use summer produce! It's still peach season in Southern Ontario, and caramel peaches in the blondies would be just lovely! Top it off with some vanilla nice cream and you might as well open your own bake shop on the porch!
A tip for the caramel: make sure you start your timer right when you pour the caramel in the pot. 5-7 minutes of boiling is all you need. If you boil it more the caramel get harder. Although incredibly delicious, it becomes nearly impossible to cut (or eat). This caramel is thick and hardy. Boil it until it is a nice golden brown and the bubbles are large, but take it off promptly after. Be sure to only pour on HALF the caramel sauce and drizzle it slowly. If you put all of it on, you will have a thick piece of caramel on the blondies. Appetizing- yes. Too heavy for the blondies- also yes. If your blondies are frozen prior to pouring on the caramel, it'll hold up better. With that left over caramel, pour it in a parchment lined dish and eat it later on its own or with ice cream- its still really tasty!
Another pro tip: Add a little sea salt or flaked salt to the caramel once poured. It really takes the whole treat to the next level, especially if its crunchy flaked sea salt. You can get our favourite Maldon Sea Salt in our shop.
