Making Tasty Cannabis Caramels: Marijuana Recipes
Published on Jan 28, 2021
Caramels are delicious during any time of the year and are one of those classic candies that pretty much everyone loves and are also extremely easy to make at home. What's even better than normal caramels are cannabis-infused caramels, and whether you're a beginner or a seasoned cannabaker, they are relatively straightforward to make. Edibles can be bought from any dispensary nowadays, but the prices tend to lean towards the steep side. Learning how to make your own can save you a bunch of money, and you can customize it to your liking. Of course, we love edibles that give us a real high. Try swapping your cannabutter with CBD if you're looking to mellow out but avoid the dreaded marijuana hangover.
A crucial ingredient for the recipe below is marijuana-infused butter, which needs to be made before you can start on the cannabis caramels. In order for the cannabutter to work its magic, the raw flower used for it has to undergo the decarboxylation process. This is when the bud gets heated up, converting the non-psychoactive THCA compound into THC and giving us that faded sensation. Be sure to dose your cannabutter properly according to your tolerance level. If you'd prefer to skip the math for calculating the potency, which can be found with this formula, thankfully there are many online calculators to help you.
Canna Caramel Recipe
- Pinch of salt
- 1 can (14 ounces) of condensed milk
- 1 cup of cannabutter
- 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- Melt all of the cannabutter in a pan at a low temperature so that you are able to keep as much of the cannabutter's potency as possible.
- Add the salt and sugar as you continue stirring until it is completely mixed.
- Add condensed milk to the mixture, pouring slowly and stirring as you go. Be sure to break up all the clumpy parts to get a smooth texture throughout the mixture while keeping the temperature between low and medium heat.
- Preheat your oven to 212 degrees Fahrenheit. While waiting for it to preheat, spread the mixture onto waxed paper.
- After placing it in the oven, wait for approximately 12-15 minutes. Once the gloopy consistency of caramel is present, remove it from the oven, and then stir in the vanilla extract. Keep stirring thoroughly until the vanilla extract has been spread evenly throughout the ball of caramel.
- Cut the ball of caramel into small portions for serving, then place them on wax paper to cool down.
