Neither...add them to primary after fermentation starts to slow down. You can dissolve them in a small amount of boiled, mostly cooled/still warm water. Two advantages: 1) you will retain more flavor this way and 2) lower OG for the yeast to deal with when starting. I do this with my vanilla/oak/bourbon porter (that also has molasses) and you can taste the molasses much better than when I used to add it at flameout. I have done other beers with late honey or other sugar additions, and always successful...

I'm happy to share...I don't want to hijack the thread, so I'll get something posted up in the recipe section and post the link, or I'll PM it to you. Bear with me and I'll get it done in the next day or so...
