- My batch I thought was brown enough and thin enough...turned out I was wrong although it did harden it was just too sticky. I took each broken peice put it on parchement and cooked on high in microwave for 40 seconds. Turned colour and came out perfect. I also dusted it with the tiniest bit of baking soda before cooking again.
