Learn how to make a batch of homemade, rich, chewy cannabis-infused caramels using cannabutter and cannabis salt, if desired. These make a fantastic quick treat in an individual small portion for maximum portability.
I would not recommend using cannabis-infused sugar to make caramels because the process of caramelizing the sugar would damage the medicine. Using cannabis-infused salt for finishing would be a great idea, however!
This recipe uses cannabis-infused for its infusion. If you haven’t yet made a batch, learn how to make cannabis-infused butter in preparation for this recipe.
Light corn syrup. This is commonly used as an interfering agent in candy-making, preventing the sugar from recrystallizing.
Granulated sugar. We recommend using white granulated sugar. This is the primary ingredient that we caramelize for delicious flavor.
Heavy cream. Luxurious fat content.
Fine sea salt. Salt balances the sweetness of the candy.
Vanilla extract. Delicious flavor.
Cannabis-infused butter. Butter is a common ingredient in caramels, and this is our vehicle for infusing this recipe.
Flake sea salt. Optional for finishing.
Heavy-bottom pot. This is an important item for this recipe. A pot with a thick, heavy bottom helps distribute the heat evenly and prevents the burning of the candy.
Kitchen scale. Ingredients for this recipe are presented in grams. You’ll need a kitchen scale for this. To me, it’s a must-have for many recipes because there’s nothing more accurate.
Whisk. For mixing ingredients into the candy.
9-inch x 13-inch baking sheet. To hold the candy while it cools.
These will keep at room temperature for a few days but are best kept in the fridge for a few weeks or in the freezer for even longer. Just let them come back to room temperature for optimal, luscious enjoyment.
