Baking Question: Will Cocomels harden during baking?

We received a question from our website to this effect: "If I use your Cocomels in a pie, will they reharden once the pie has cooled or will they remain in a sauce-like consistency? If they will reharden, what can I do to make them more syrupy?" The answer is that they will likely reharden.  It works like this:  Cocomels get harder as moisture leaves the candy.  Cooking cooks moisture out of the candy, leading to a firmer texture once cool.  If, however, you have a lot of moisture in your pie (from berries etc) that moisture might actually soften...

Do Cocomels have a Super Power?

Do Cocomels have a Super Power?

Allergen-Free Organic Caramels To The Rescue I was once asked, “If Cocomels could save the world, how would they do it?  What is their Super Power?”  I imagined this scenario: A human in trouble:  “HELP!  Life is so complicated…  So much to do, so many stimuli,  so    many     conflicting     messages!  I barely know who I am anymore.  Plus, I lost my keys.  I just need a moment for myself that will remind me how beautiful life is and how simple it can be.” Cocomel: “Hello, I heard a call for help, I’m here to save the world!  You...

Movement and Changes

What a journey this is turning out to be. I created the first Cocomel a couple of years ago and humbly put it on the table of my booth at the Boulder farmers market.
