How to serve Apple Blondies
Well, the most outrageous and impressive way is to serve your apple blondes warm with a large scoop of cold vanilla ice cream and a heavy drizzle of rich caramel sauce.
They are also served absolutely delicious, just as they have room temperature!
I made three sets of these apple blondes to give to the guests when they leave a dinner party.
And I always get rave reviews saying that the Apple Blondies were all gone before they came home!
Apple Blondie ingredients
Fresh apples are gutted, peeled and cut into pieces to fill every apple-y-grade bite.
If you need to chop the apples in advance, add a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice so they do not oxidize and turn brown.
I use a combination of nutmeg and cinnamon to season my apple blonds, but you can use 1.5 teaspoon apple pie spice instead if you already have it on hand.
After all, this recipe uses melted butter. So the Blondie recipe is not only super fast and easy to prepare, but we also achieve the perfect, crisp Blondie tops.
Can I add caramel to the blondes?
Yes! However, you must use small pieces of caramel, no caramel pieces in original size.
Caramel pieces are slightly drier than regular caramel squares and are better suited for this type of dessert.
They are also the perfect size and do not sink as much as regular caramels.
However, if you have no caramel pieces, I recommend cutting the square standard caramels into quarters.
Then at the end with the apple pieces stir.
Be aware that they may make your Apple Blondies a bit messy and difficult to cut, but still delicious!
Can I make Apple Blondies ahead of time?
Yes, but only a few days ahead of us.
Since we use fresh apples, they give the blondes a little more moisture and the apple bites remain very moist themselves.
So, if you sit on the counter for 4-5 days, the blondes can start to go bad and possibly make mold.
These apple blondies are best served within 2 to 3 days of baking and stored in an airtight container on the counter.
These Apple Blondies bars are epic and I can not wait for you and your families to taste them!
