How to make white chocolate caramel pretzel blondies

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 9-inch square baking tray with parchment paper.

  4. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  5. Fold in the white chocolate pieces and pretzel pieces, reserving a handful of each for topping the blondies.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth out the top with a spatula.
  7. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the top of the blondie batter, and use a knife to swirl it into the batter.
  8. Sprinkle the reserved white chocolate and place pretzels over the top of the blondies.
  9. Bake blondies for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  10. Allow the blondies to cool in the tray for 10-15 minutes before slicing with a sharp knife and serving.
  11. Enjoy! 

Top Tip

For an extra crispy and crunchy texture in the blondies, reserve some pretzel pieces to sprinkle on top just before baking. By placing the pretzel pieces on top instead of folding them into the batter, they’ll toast and crisp up during baking, creating a lovely crunch that contrasts beautifully with the chewy blondie base.

This addition provides a more pronounced pretzel crunch, giving each bite a delightful mix of textures and a hint of saltiness, enhancing the overall flavour profile of the blondies.

Serving Suggestions

These white chocolate caramel pretzel blondies are a delightful treat on their own, but you can take them up a notch with some creative serving suggestions:

  1. With Ice cream: Warm a blondie and serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The warm blondie and the cold ice cream create a fantastic contrast in temperature and texture.
  2. Caramel Drizzle: Drizzle extra caramel sauce on top just before serving for an added burst of caramel flavour and a beautiful presentation.
  3. Whipped Cream: Top each blondie with a dollop of freshly whipped cream and a sprinkle of chopped pretzels or white chocolate for an indulgent finish.
  4. Fruit Topping: Serve with a side of fresh berries or a fruit compote for a refreshing and slightly tangy contrast to the sweetness of the blondies.
  5. Coffee or Tea: Pair a square of blondie with a hot cup of coffee or tea. The richness of the blondie complements the bitterness of the coffee or tea.
  6. Create a Blondie Sundae: Cut the blondie into smaller pieces and create a mini blondie sundae by adding your favourite toppings like whipped cream, a cherry, chocolate chips, or nuts.
  7. Gift or Party Favours: Wrap individual blondies in decorative packaging to give as gifts or serve as party favours at gatherings or a birthday party.
  8. Yoghurt Parfait: Crumble the blondies and layer them with yogurt and some fruit to create a parfait for breakfast or a snack.
  9. Dipping Sauce: Serve warm blondies with a side of warm caramel sauce or chocolate sauce for dipping. It’s a fun interactive way to enjoy the blondies.
  10. Create a Blondie Platter: Arrange a variety of blondies, each with a different topping (caramel, chocolate, nuts), on a platter for the ultimate dessert spread at a gathering.

Storage tips

Here are some storage tips for the white chocolate caramel pretzel blondies:

  1. Room temperature: Store the blondies at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days. They will stay fresh and moist for several days.
  2. Fridge: If you want to store the blondies for a longer period, you can keep them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
  3. Freezer: To freeze the blondies, wrap them individually in clingfilm or tinfoil, then store them in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months. Thaw them at room temperature before serving.
  4. Reheating: To reheat the blondies, place them in a preheated oven at 180°c for 5-10 minutes, or until they are heated through. You can also microwave them for 10-20 seconds on high.

Keep in mind that the caramel sauce may become firmer and stickier when stored in the fridge or freezer, but it will soften again when the blondies are brought back to room temperature.
