Made two more experimental batches of the Honey Caramel Shampoo, with Coconut milk, and again they set suddenly and quickly. Too quickly to get the honey all mixed in. Too quickly to pour them into the moulds... had to pack them in. Didn't have anything do do with the water in the honey or quantities of honey I realized.
The first batch is the previous post - the one you all seemed to think looks like caramel we could eat! Second batch in the forefront of the photo - I had the temperatures just right with the water/honey mix but it set again on me even before I poured the water/honey mix in!
The third batch, in the background of the photo, I lowered the honey quantities, did not add water to the honey, and had the temperatures right but again is set too quickly. So, in the end I know there is something funky with this recipe... I believe it just heats up too quickly... maybe the coconut milk? If I repeat this recipe, I will do half water and half coconut milk.
Rather interesting colour experiment though, don't you think? What do you see in the white spot....? I see a sweet angel.......
