Frosted Caramel Apple Blondies

Frosted Caramel Apple Blondies


  • Apple Mix:
  • 1 ½ cups of diced red apple (about 1 big apple) in half-inch pieces
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Blondie Batter:
  • ½ cup of softened salted butter
  • 1 cup of packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ¼ cups of all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of baking soda
  • Frosting:
  • 4 tablespoons of cream cheese (softened)
  • 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup of whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Salted Caramel Sauce


Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8-inch metal baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides.

Mix your diced apples with cinnamon until they're all coated evenly.

For the blondie batter, melt the butter and mix it up with the brown sugar and vanilla in a big bowl. Whisk in the eggs one by one until it's all smooth.

In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add these dry ingredients into the wet mixture and gently mix it all together. Then, fold in those cinnamon-coated apples.

Spread this batter evenly into your prepared pan and bake it for about 30-35 minutes until it's nice and golden on top. Stick a skewer in; it should come out mostly clean with just a few sticky bits.

Once it's done, let it cool completely on a wire rack.

For the frosting, whip up the softened cream cheese, brown sugar, cream, cinnamon, and vanilla until it's all nice and fluffy. Spread this frosting goodness over your cooled blondies.

Now, dollop some salted caramel sauce randomly over the frosting and gently swirl it in with a spoon.

Pop it in the fridge to chill, then cut yourself a slice and enjoy your delicious creation! Keep the rest refrigerated for later indulgence.
