    LOL guess what I'm eating right now? Hey S_a_H I got a package for you wit h10 of my best yet in it. I just need a ride to drop it off at the carrier. I cooked the last batch to 250 rather than 238 and it came out great!!!

    Also for the last batch I took 6 Chai Tea Bags and brewed them in 16oz water. Then I poured the extra strong tea into a large sauce pan and slowly evaporated it till it was a thick liquid about 1/16th it's original volume. I added 1/4 tsp of this concentrated chai flavor to the caramel the same time I add the vanilla and almond extracts. MMMMMMMMMMMMMm gooooooooooood!

    This batch is so potent that 2 made me vomit!!!

    What strains are in this batch ? The wife is going to loving you, her back and hip have really been bothering her at night when sleeping. Her doc upped her monthly alotment hydrocodone to 100 a month which really bothers me.

    So i finally got around to trying this recipe. i made some slight additions to make it more my own but the basics were the same.

    what i did:
    1 3/4 cup sugar
    1 1/2 tbsp molasus
    1/2 tsp salt
    3/4 cup extra potent budbutter
    1 tbsp trader joes organic peanute butter
    3 tbsp trader joes organic sunflower seed butter
    1 can sweetened condensed milk
    1/4 cup strong dark poppy tea
    1 tsp fine ground black peper
    2 tsp ground ginger
    was out of vanilla

    The 3 types of butter were melted together, the salt, sugar and molasus was added to this and it was braught to a boil while stiring. it boiled for 1 min. tea and milk were mixed together and then added to the sugar/better mix. the temp was reduced and the contents were stirred continuously while they slowly were braught to 238*f on a candy thermometer. Then the spices were mixed in to facilitate obsorption. an 8x8 baking pan was heavily sprayed down with baking pam. then the hot mixture was poured into the pan and allowed to set overnight. i cut them into aproximately 60-70 pieces and rapped them in wax paper.

    i then placed them in a bag and headed out to a festival. 24 hours after i finished rapping them i had only about 23 pieces left. i think they where a big hit!

    i ate somewhere between 14 and 20 pieces in that time period and sure was feeling good and slept alot today hehehe. Thanx for the great recipe, Pharma!!!

    i would have had to eat the whole batch in order to be heavely effected by the cannabutter. my oral tolerance is through the roof.

    Tight! I've had one friend after another say "I don't get high from pot food." He he he he he! I always make sure to tell them to eat them on an empty stomach and not to eat anything for an hour or two after. The funny thing is everybody always argues that they have some special tollerance. I explain that they probably didn't get very potent pot food and that they should be carefull. Time after time I get friends calling me the next day telling me they had never been that stoned in their life. A few friends even had to miss work because they were too messed up! One friend almost missed graduation due to the caramels!

    I like your version of the recipe. Good stuff, just wish it didn't require so much stirring!

    So I'm spicing things up a little. i anticipate that my current batch of butter will be more potent and thus it will have a lot more cannabinoid flavor. To counter this I'm making some extra flavorings to go along with the Vanilla and Almond Extract.

    The first home made flavoring was prepared by adding 100ml Captian Morgans Spiced rum to a sauce pan and reducing to about 1 tsp. Use caution if you try this as there will be very flamable alcohol vapors that redily ignite. Just like on Iron Chef. Just be carefull and keep the vent running on full.

    The second was prepared by adding 3 tea bags pf Good Earth Chai Tea and 3 tea Bags of Bigelow Vanilla Chai Tea to 1 liter of boiling water. It was allowed to steap for 15 min. The tea was poured into a large sauce pan and 2 tsp ground clove were added. The tea was reduced on a meduim-low heat till it reached a volume of aprox 50ml.

    These will be added prior to the vanilla while the carmel is still cooking as there will be a little water in them that still needs to be cooked off.

    My house smells great!!!!

    was there any reasoning behind your choice of added flavorings? like to any of them aide obsorption? that is why i chose most of my added spice flavorings. if not, not worries just curious.

    Well the addition of the homemade chai flavor came from dissolving caramels into chai on those mornings where chewing and swallowing food would have made me hurl. I found that putting them in chai made them hit much faster and a little longer. I figure that it's due to the peper in the chai tea causing vasodialation in the gut allowing for enhanced absorbtion. The real reason I add the chai is for the taste as i doubt there's even a negledgable amount of pepper in each caramel.

    I will add this caveat. This batch came out a little softer and more sticky than normal. I think it's either ther higher humidity lately or the addition of too many flavorings resulting in non crystalizing compunds that could possibly be hydrophilic.

    Next expierment will be a small batch and the addition of powdered chocolate and corn starch. Trying to make a tootsie roll!!

    I just got done eating the first one and I tell ya what no matter they are MJ I think PP puts my mom to shame in just making the caramels. Very buttery and nice creamy texture because if you don't cook them right they can turn out like fudge does sometimes that is gritty becuase the sugars didn't heat up enough. Also not very overpowering as canna products can be in the taste catagory. I would like to try some cannacaramel apples now that would be a fair favorite of course. Also much better unwrapping them with the wax paper instead of those little cups.

    Thanks guys! It's an evolving project. Here's a few tips/technique modifications I've picked up after the last few batches.

    1) Rather than add the condensed milk at the begining you can save yourself some stiring time by just adding the syrup, sugar and butter to the pot and boil it for 4-5ish min without stirring then add the condensed milk.

    2) Use a single beater wand type electric hand mixer so you can cook with a higher flame. You risk burning it but if you mix thouroughly enough taking care to scrape the bottom you can shorten the cooking (constant stiring) time considerably.

    3) As your thermometer approaches 228 reduce the temp a little as it will start to climb fast at this stage.

    4) I've been finding that cooking to 245*F produces a better textured caramel that holds up to room temprature storage better but is more difficult to dissolve in drinks.

    5) Use VERY potent butter. I did a side by side comparason of equal doses of caramel and cookie made with the same butter. From my mini experiement I believe that the long, high temp cooking in caramel making degrades the cannabinoids more so than when making pan cookies with shorter cooking times. I'm pretty sure that as a liquid the caramel at the bottom of the pot get's a lot hotter than 145 untill it's stirred/scraped off the bottom of the pot as well.

    I'm looking at figuring out how to make caramels from cane sugar rather than corn syrup but alas I'm lazy and have other more pressing projects to work on at the moment.

    I'v been thinking about how I could make it without HFCS but never realy looked into substitutes. Did you just use plain white sugar or some special cain juice concentration?
