Expert Tips

  • Letting the caramel cool for a few minutes helps to ensure it won’t overheat the frosting, which might make the filling oily.
  • Melting the caramels on the stove on low heat, stirring constantly, allows the caramels to melt evenly. Melting them in the microwave in a bowl may cause them to burn in spots if the microwave heats more intensely in some parts of the oven.
