Hi, I just attempted to do them. Unfortunately it didn’t work because the sugar never dissolved. Was there some additional step that I missed? Thank you
Hi Nina, how did you melt your butter? If you melt it on the stove in a small saucepan, try to get the butter to a slight simmer. That way it will be hot enough to dissolve the sugar. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions 🙂
