Salted Caramel Blondie Slice

Hi Guys!

I know, I know, you're drooling right?

Get in the kitchen & make these immediately, you wont regret it....well you might if you count the calories, but who does that?

To make these deliciously chewy, chocolately, gooey goodies you need:

For the blondies - Recipe taken from Erins Kitchen
157g Plain Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda/Bicarbonate of soda
113g Butter softened
165g Brown Sugar
4 tbsp Granulated Sugar
2 Large Eggs at room temp
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
150g Dark Choc or Semi Sweet Choc Chips
For the caramel - used own recipe
120g butter
1 tin condensed milk
2 tbsp golden syrup
120g caster sugar
1 tsp sea salt 
For the chocolate topping - used own recipe
125g Dark Choc
125g Milk Choc

Directions for Blondie
Preheat oven to 170c
Grease 9in silicone baking pan
Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl
In a separate large bowl beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until fluffy
Mix in the eggs one at a time and then add the vanilla
Mix the flour into the butter & sugar mix by hand taking care not to overmix
Fold in Chocolate chips
Spread batter evenly into the prepared pan,
Bake for 25 minutes, taking care not to over bake.
Once base is cooled you can prepare your filling.

Erens caramel filling recipe looked a little too wet for me, I prefer a more chewy caramel that sets and can be sliced through neatly so I used a more traditional millionaire shortbread caramel filling recipe. See above for ingredients.

Directions for Caramel
Put all filling ingredients into a saucepan, heat gently on low low heat until sugar is melted then bring to the boil. Stir constantly to avoid the mixture catching on the base and burning. Boil for 4 to 6 minutes until a nice rich caramel colour. Allow to cool slightly and then poor the mixture onto the blondie base spreading evenly.

Allow to cool and set in the fridge. When fully cooled and set, melt the chocolate using a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water or in the microwave.
Pour melted chocolate over the caramel and pop back in the fridge to set.

Slice. Eat. Enjoy
