Re: I need suggestions on how to soften rock hard brown sugar.

you can heat it in the microwave for a brief period of time (15-20 seconds) with a damp paper towel on top of the bowl if you need it quickly

get one of those stone critters things that you soak in water and keep with the sugar

apple slice or piece of bread works for a short period of time and you'll need to change them out
