If you are using a torch, carefully heat sugars until melted and bubbly. This can also be done in your broiler. Place as close as possible to heating element. Broil 4-6 minutes or until sugar is melted. Watch closely! Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before serving. Can also be served chilled.
