People have become super crafty when it comes to cannabis and now come up with unique and tasty creations. Cannabis-infused maple syrup candies are among the most interesting and tasty recent concoctions. These sticky and delicious treats are the perfect marijuana snack for all of you maple fanatics.
Made from pure maple syrup and fresh cannabis, these fun treats will have you coming back for more. The process is a bit long and complicated. However, we think that it is worth it considering how well these candies fare with users. So, grab yourself a pan and some bud, and learn about creating cannabis-infused maple syrup candies!
How to Make Cannabis-Infused Maple Syrup Candies
You need a lot of supplies, including:
- A pan
- A grinder
- A crockpot
- Candy molds
- Two cups of maple syrup
- A cup of water
- One-third of a cup of white corn syrup
- Cooking spray
- Flavoring and food coloring (optional)
- Finely ground decarboxylated cannabis; the amount depends on your desired potency
You need plenty of preparation to make these candies, and a lot of attention is needed. After all, it is complex candy making, and a simple error could send your confections to File 13 (aka – the trash can).
Constantly watching the temperature is perhaps the most important step in making good cannabis-infused maple candy. It would help if you kept the mixture at or near a temperature of 300 degrees Fahrenheit (148 degrees Celsius) to have a proper lollipop-like hard candy.
Spraying the molds with cooking spray is also a good idea. It will prevent the mixture from sticking to the surface.
Finally, if you fail to cook the mix for long enough, it won’t form that nice hard crack. Instead, you’ll end up with a syrupy and caramel-like substance. Though this is probably fine from a taste standpoint, it isn’t the goal in this case. Cook it too long, however, and it can burn. The result is an extremely bitter and blackened taste, which you definitely don’t want.
Cooking this candy might involve a little trial and error!
Without further ado, here’s how to make our cannabis-infused maple candy:
- Mix the corn syrup and maple syrup.
- Heat them in a pot at high heat until the combination begins to boil.
- Reduce the temperature to 300 degrees and add marijuana and food coloring or flavors.
Cannabis-Infused Maple Syrup Candies – The Finishing Touches
If you manage to get the sugar syrup mixture right, the next step is to mold it. However, some people have tried to cool them instantly in the snow and create a lollipop! This is a bit of a problem if you don’t live in a snowy area. Therefore, we don’t think this is the best way to go about it. Not to mention the fact that this process is a bit unsanitary.
Fortunately, you can purchase inexpensive lollipop molds, which is a much better option, in our opinion. You can even top your pops off with additional flavors. You could try sugar topping or even salt for a unique flavor combination. The sweetness of the maple syrup combined with the salt and the grassy flavor of the dry herb is divine.
It is somewhat complex to make and requires a lot of attention throughout the process. Nonetheless, these candies overall make for a very personalized and delicious treat. You can use any strain of cannabis that you’d like. Therefore, you can change the flavor profile, THC levels, and CBD levels at a whim.
We adore these cannabis-infused maple syrup candies. They are long-lasting and satisfying, and we couldn’t get enough of them after testing them out.
So, try this recipe for yourself and see just how good a candy maker you are. By changing the cannabis and adding personal touches, you can become a wannabe Willy Wonka in your kitchen. These candies are a fun and creative way to combine cannabis and an old-time favorite – maple syrup. Overall, these candies are a great means of getting your CBD and THC through a fun little snack.
