  • 1 cup granulated sugar

Going Step by Step

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, heavy cream, and corn syrup. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugars have dissolved.
  2. Add the cannabis-infused butter to the saucepan and continue to stir until it has melted completely.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Continue to boil until the temperature reaches 245°F on a candy thermometer.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and salt.
  5. Pour the mixture into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Allow it to cool for at least 2 hours before cutting into small squares.
  6. Wrap each square in wax paper or plastic wrap and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  • Be sure to use a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature of the mixture. This will ensure that the caramels have the right consistency and texture.
  • Grease the baking dish well to prevent the caramels from sticking.
  • If you don’t have cannabis-infused butter, you can substitute regular butter and add cannabis tincture to the mixture instead.
  • Store the caramels in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.
