    Default Cannacaramels

    This recipe is simple and makes for some tastey treats. Make your butter XXX potent so one or two does the trick. People will be amazed! Just be sure to eat them on a totally empty stomach for full effect!


    Ingredients:

    Amount Measure Ingredient --
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup dark corn syrup
    1 cup well strained cannabuter
    1 can sweetened condensed milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    I forgot to add one secret ingredient. Salt! It may sound weird but if you have ever had cookies without the salt you will know that they were bland. I don't know the exact amount because I eyeball it but I'd venture I'm putting in about a teaspoon. If your butter is exceptionally pot flavored and you don't like the taste of pot, leave out the salt as it will enhance the candy and marijuana flavor.

    Preparation:

    Line a 8 inch square pan with foil and butter the foil; set aside. Combine sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a 3 quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil slowly for 4 miutes without stirring. Remove from the heat and stir in milk. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until candy thermomenter reads 238 (soft ball stage, USE A CANDY THERMOMETER), stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan. Cool. Remove from pan and cut into 1 inch squares. Wrap individually in waxed paper; twist ends.

    I have no idea how long they will store. I can't seen to hold on to them for very long. I'd be carefull about storing them warm as they have dairy in them. I'd expect them to last at least a few weeks to perhaps months if the temps and humidity are reasonably low.

    Just made another batch. this time I made a few additions. First I took 6 tablespoons of brandy and added it to a small sauce pan. I then reduced it to one teaspoon slowly without burning or carmelizing it. Then I made the caramels as usual but at the end I added the brandy reduction to the caramel with the vanilla extract. I also added 1 tsp. of almond extract. The results are insane!!! This recipe is a great starting point for other creations.

    From the time I started the butter to the time I was licking the spoon was a little over 26 hours total. The actual time to cook the caramels is around 1 hour including prep and clean. I have a bad shoulder/back so I have to use a electric whisk s oI'm not in agony after an hour of stiring a very thick liquid! I also make large batches so it's more time efficient.

    a most excellent recipe. I mean its not like any of us have a sweet tooth after a puff eh?
    Hit them where it hurts, show them the scientific truth about marijuana, while debunking the lies.
    Even politicians know, that the truth will always win.

    As promised here's a few photo's. Most of the caramels were gone by the time I shot this.


    PS: NEVER use those little foil wrappers. The caramel will stick like mad!

    This one disserves a bump. And I added the line about the salt to the recipe.

    these are the ones... If your making them make sure you get up to temp or they will be a little soft I had to keep mine in the freezer so I could unwrap them from the wax paper but they taste great and are easy to make... I have had some in the freezer for over a month and they are still ok... If you like candy this is one to try....
