What is the Best Way to Melt Peter’s Caramel?


Peter's Caramel

Glad you asked! There are a few ways to melt Peter’s Caramel for dipping. But our favorite way is in the oven.

How to Melt Peter’s Caramel in the Oven:

Why We Love this Method:

  • 1. Because it takes 60-90 minutes to melt, you can place the caramel in the oven and walk away! Since you don’t have to sit and stir the caramel on the stove top, you have time to do other things: prep your apples for dipping, read a book, take a nap, etc…
  • 2. The caramel doesn’t burn. Unless of course you leave it in the oven too long. The stove top method needs constant attention so that the caramel won’t burn. The oven doesn’t.
  • 3. Not as messy! As you all know, caramel is sticky. And sticky means messy. But since you place the entire loaf into a pot and let it melt, the clean up is a lot easier. If you don’t need all of the caramel, pour what is left into an air-tight container. It keeps forever!

It’s that simple! Have you ever melted Peter’s Caramel this way? What’s your favorite method?

If not and you plan to steam pasta and vegetables, you may (or may not) want to purchase one. My stock pot at home doesn’t have one, but I just use a regular colander.
