Cannabis Caramels. Not only does it have a ring to it, but these caramels taste great. What I really like about these caramels is that they are easily concealable and simple to make. Not only that, but there’s a lot you can do with them too! I regularly attend the cannabis cup and every year people get more creative with their edibles, especially caramels. Now, the cannabis caramel recipe we are using today is basic, but can be touched up upon if you’d like. We don’t need a whole lot of ingredients for this one, but we will need the following.
- 1 cup of cannabutter
- 1 cup of corn syrup
- Dash of salt
- 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar
- 14 oz of condensed milk
- 1 tsb of vanilla
So the first step of this recipe is to melt your 1 cup of cannabutter down in a medium sized pot on the stove. Then you are going to mix in the dash of salt and 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar. Once these ingredients have combined, stir in the milk and corn syrup. It should be noted here that you are going to want to consistently continue to stir the mixture throughout the entire process. We are working with a small amount of caramels here so it is advised to let this mixture heat up on medium to high heat for around 12 to 15 minutes, or until the mixture starts to turn into a goo and harden. It is at this point that we are going to mix in the 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Once the vanilla has been evenly dispersed, pour the caramel into a 9×13 inch pan and let them cool. A 9×13 inch pan is not required, but I’ve found it works best with the amount of caramel we are working with here. Once these are cooled, cut wrap and serve. As an added tip, I personally like to add coarse salt on top or drizzle them in some melted chocolate. Get creative here, the sky is the limit!
Now the recipe you will see in the video below is very different that what I’ve outlined above. It follows the same basic format but this guy uses 45 grams of high quality bubble hash yielding 45 caramels. These caramels are no joke (for experienced users only) and are similar to some that I’ve seen at the Cannabis Cup. It should be noted with this recipe, and all of the others on the site, that what I’ve provided is only a starting point. Feel free to improve upon the recipe and let us know what we can do better in the comments below. Better yet, submit it and we can update our recipe or give you your own post!
