How to melt Carmel in microwave
In a few minutes, you can melt caramels to a smooth consistency in your microwave. Caramels are made by gradually heating sugar with butter and cream to about 250 degrees, known in candy making as the “firm ball stage.” Melting caramels in the microwave helps the novice candy-maker avoid the sugar-scorching perils of molten hot liquid. The microwave oven warms the butter fats from the inside and the sugar crystals don’t harden.

These candies are very strong and you will not feel the medication effects for 20-30 minutes after you eat them! Eat 1 piece and wait 20-30 minutes before you eat any more, to be sure you do not over medicate! If you do over medicate go into a quite place and relax, sleep if you can until the effect’s lesson and adjust dose next time. You CANNOT be harmed by over medicating!
