The temperature will be climbing all the time, until it reaches about 110 Celsius. This is when you should stop. The procedure of making candy is to start with sugar syrup and then boil out some of the water, getting a solution which is fully saturated at its boiling temperature (which is above that of pure water) and becomes supersaturated when it cools ...
I don't think you physically can achieve the same results with a sous vide machine. Typically, those are designed to hold a water bath at a specific (relatively low) temperature. You can't hold water above its boiling point in an open container, because it's, well, boiling and will eventually evaporate. (You could do this in a sealed container, which is the ...
Usually only a portion of the needle of a typical meat thermometer reads the temperature. On some models this is indicated with an indentation on the needle. It is usually near the end, though not always exactly at the end. The thermometer reads the temperature the location of this part of the thermometer. You want to know the temperature at the center of ...
The sensor in your thermometer is located at the tip of the needle, so you're measuring wherever the tip of the needle ended up. If the tip of the needle it not touching anything (or is touching the pan or cooking surface) your readings will be skewed.
Silicone can be made to conduct heat well, but I doubt that's the type on your sheet. A lot of the browning comes from infrared (radiated) heat that the metal sheet is great at emitting. Silicone will likely buffer the radiated heat and not allow the browning effect (Millard's reaction) the same way steel would. My guess is you'll get more browning on ...
I just made a brownie box mix according to directions. I baked them at 325 degrees in a dark non stick mini muffin pan with each section given a spritz of PAM. Baked for 15 minutes, no extra fuss. Upon removal from oven I let them sit about 1-2 minutes, turned the pan upside down and they slipped out easily. Brownies were moist - PERFECT!
