Expert Tips

  • For even more indulgence, when serving, drizzle each piece with additional salted caramel sauce.
  • To soften butter, cut in small pieces, and leave at room temperature. A faster method is to microwave butter in 5-second intervals, turning frequently so butter is softened but not melted.
