Heaven in a pan...from The Cookie Cookbook. Edited 2-3-08 to add using foil and greasing the foil, or use non stick foil to line the pan, and to GENTLY SPOON the caramel mixture onto the bottom layer.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Foil AND grease (or use non-stick foil) a 13x9 baking pan. Sift flour, baking soda and salt into medium bowl.
  2. Beat butter and brown sugar in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until smooth. Gradually stir in flour mixture Spread half of batter in prepared pan. Bake 8 minues; cool 5 minutes on wire rack.
  3. Meanwhile, melt caramels and evaporated milk in nonstick saucepan over very low heat. Reserving 2 tablespoonfuls for drizzle, GENTLY SPOON remaining caramel mixture over baked layer in pan. Drop tablespoonfuls of remaining batter over caramel layer, swirl slightly with knife.
  4. Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into squares. Reheat reserved caramel, if necessary; drizzle over bars.

5 stars for the squeals of happiness from my daughter when she tried these (she thinks I should open up my own bakery and sell these!!) I haven't had a chance to try them yet, but will tonight. Had no trouble removing them after spraying my 9X13 glass baking dish (no foil). I also didn't have a full 14-oz bag of caramels (maybe 3/4 of a bag), so I reduced the evaporated milk (used fat-free) to about 1/3 cup. Will put this recipe in my collection so I can make again! Thanks for the recipe!

The foil worked wonderfully. My blondies were easy to cut and serve after I put them in the fridge overnight. My BF loved them. I can't wait to share these with my friends.

Oh my but these are so oooy and gooey. I agree with the previous reviewer about making sure the foil is sprayed really really well. I didn't have a problem, but you need to make sure. These are so sinful Recipe...but oh so good. A definitely must for caramel lovers. And not for those watching calories/fat.... Made for Spring PAC 08'
