Q:

What is the best way to melt caramels?

A:

Melt caramels in a nonstick pot over medium-high heat while stirring constantly. Ingredients needed are the desired amount of pre-packaged caramel candies, a nonstick pot, a wooden stirring spoon and 2 tablespoons of water. This process should take between 10 to 15 minutes depending upon the amount of caramel candies used.

  1. Unwrap the caramels

    Remove the plastic wrapper from the caramels, and put them into a bowl. Repeat until you have a sufficient amount of the candy for your recipe, or until you have unwrapped the whole bag.

  2. Place caramels in a nonstick pot

    When you have unwrapped a sufficient number of caramels, empty the entire bowl into a nonstick pot that is set over a medium-low heat. Pour 2 to 3 tablespoons of water over the caramels to help them dissolve smoothly. More water may be added per tablespoon to reach the desired consistency.

  3. Stir the caramels continuously

    Stir the caramels constantly. Make sure that you watch the caramel-water mixture closely for a period of 10 to 15 minutes, and continue to stir it over medium-low heat until it has melted and has a smooth, silky consistency. Resist the temptation to turn up the heat to make it melt faster, as this could easily result in burnt caramel.

    Why do you need baking soda in cookies?

    A:

    Baking soda causes the cookie to rise. Tiny air bubbles are formed when baking soda comes in contact with liquid and acid. This effect does not last long, so it is important to bake the cookies soon after mixing the ingredients.
