Place coated pieces into your bundt pan (the pan does not need to be greased).  Make the caramel by first melting the butter for approximately 45 seconds.

Add the brown sugar and stir or whisk until combined. If the mixture is not combining, heat for approximately 45 more seconds and stir until it combines.
