Caramel Melts

A super simple snack to make when you need (need!) a pan of sweet treats.


You will need:

1/2c butter
2c brown sugar
dash of vanilla
2 eggs
1 and 1/2c flour

You will also need: an hour, a bowl, a spoon, an oven, a pan, and at least one arm (or a very resourceful foot).


Melt butter and blend with brown sugar
Mix eggs, vanilla, and flour into the butter mixture.
Pour into a greased 8″ square pan.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 mins.

I don’t know how aptly this is named, because there’s no caramel and the only thing melted is the butter… but Hawaii’s a funny place. So who knows why.

Anyway this is simple to create and tasty to ingest.

My biggest challenge was smashing all the lumps out of my rock of brown sugar. I didn’t get it all finely ground – but the little lumps left melted sugar pockets in the finished product – which were delicious! So don’t worry if there are a few small sugar lumps throughout. The mixture doesn’t have to be entirely smooth.


The flavour of this dessert is quite mild so it will go nicely with all sorts of teas and coffees. As well as appealing to vast range of picky eaters and fuss pots.

I found this first attempt to be a little bland – so going forward I will be applying a tasty topping, such as icing or cookie butter!…and a few chocolate chips sprinkled into the mixture couldn’t hurt.
