I'm totally hopping on the salted caramel trend AND the brown butter trend in a big way with these Brown Butter Blondies with Salted Caramel Buttercream. I mean, c'mon, these are amazing!
The nuttiness of the brown butter, the salty sweetness of the buttercream, and the chocolatey chunks of the blondies - how could you go wrong?

Why Brown Butter Blondies are So Good
As you probably know by now, I'm a big fan of desserts that are uncomplicated and satisfy my insatiable sweet tooth. These brown butter blondies meet that criteria and more.
Now, don't get me wrong, there are a few components to these bites of deliciousness, but they are worth every bit of extra effort you'll put in - and each of the components are so uncomplicated. Believe me. You'll want to make these again and again. And eat them again and again.
Reasons why these blondies kick ass:
- They combine lots of complementary flavors into one no-frills dessert
- Brown butter (need I say more? maybe one more...)
- Salted caramel (need I say more now?)
- You'll likely have extras of the salted caramel buttercream - eat it with a spoon, it's to die for
How can I Customize Brown Butter Blondies
This recipe is also pretty customizable, if you so choose.
You can bake up the blondies by themselves (naked, as I like to refer to them), you can use chocolate chips or caramel chips instead of chopped dark chocolate, you can skip the buttercream frosting and simply drizzle the salted caramel on top of the naked blondies, you can substitute half the chocolate for nuts - sky's the limit!
