    But can you put *hot* melted caramel in *any* icing bag so that it spreads easier?

    Depends on how hot we're talking! You can certainly put warm caramel in a piping bag, but if you're handling hot caramel then you need to be sure that the bag can tolerate the heat and that you won't burn yourself when touching it. What are you making with the caramel?

    Yum, they sound delicious! :) I can see what you mean about the caramel, as long as it is soft enough (and cool enough) I don't see any reason why a piping bag won't work. If you don't want to go to the expense of buying a piping bag you could make one from greaseproof paper:
