Whatchamacallit Blondies

My last three posts have been main dish items so I thought it was high time for a dessert. These delicious blondies are laced with caramel sauce, chewy caramels, crispy cereal and salty peanuts, then topped with a rich chocolate icing. Yum.

Start by creaming together the butter and sugar. Then add the eggs, caramel sauce,

vanilla and salt and beat on low until fluffy. Gradually add in the flour and baking soda and beat just until well mixed. Fold in the caramel bits,

rice krispies and peanuts.

Spread the batter into a greased cake pan and bake for 28-30 minutes. Let the bars cool.

For the icing, heat the cream to boiling in the microwave, then add the chocolate chips.

Stir well until the chips are melted and the icing is smooth.

Pour the icing over the bars,

and spread evenly. Refrigerate the bars for an hour or so to let the icing set.

Cut into 24 bars and enjoy!
