With a heat advisory in place across Hampton Roads, it’s obvious that it’s pretty hot outside.

Temperatures were expected to reach 94 degrees on Thursday with a heat index soaring over 100 degrees.

With that in mind, NewsChannel 3 decided to put the an age-old experiment to the test…

We placed the cookies in a car around 2:00 p.m. when the outside temperature read 90 degrees.

The cookies “baked” until 5:30 p.m. They didn’t quite cook all the way through but we say it’s definitely doable!

We also set up a camera to see how long it would take to melt a Popsicle. The verdict? 15 minutes.
