Coconut oil toffee

Caramel is one of those classic candies almost everyone loves. Caramel is also an incredibly easy candy to make at home, although many folks hesitate. While monitoring a thermometer isn’t rocket science, there is a little intimidation factor about a recipe that requires monitoring.

Rest assured… as long as you can read a thermometer, this recipe is super simple to make!

The best part about making edible candies is the temperatures remain relatively low, so you don’t risk burning off valuable potency. Plus, bite-size edibles are easy for dosing and convenient for consuming.

Edibles in the legal market are wildly popular because they are simple and convenient, however, they can also be very expensive. Learning how to make these simple and delicious treats can save you a ton!

Before you get started, you’ll need to follow the recipe for making cannabis-infused coconut oil, as this is your base ingredient.

This recipe is versatile

Caramels are a versatile candy of which a whole host of flavors will work to enhance your recipe, so don’t be afraid to experiment. Try cacao to mimic the classic tootsie roll. I have also used 2 oz. of chopped dark chocolate melted in with the mixture for a rich, delicious twist. Orange, honey, and maple are among other flavors that could be easily blended into your caramel recipes.

Cannabis Toffee Caramels

coconut oil toffee recipe

Since everyone seemed to enjoy our cannabis caramels recipe, sharing another cannabis and caramel concoction seemed like a good idea. Here’s our recipe for Cannabis Toffee Caramels. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces butter (85 grams)
  • ¼ can of condensed milk (4 tablespoons)
  • 8 ounces sugar (225 grams)
  • 8 tablespoons golden syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 4 ounces broken-up plain chocolate (100 grams)
  • 3-4 grams finely crumbled hash

Directions

Combine everything but the chocolate and hash into a heavy-duty saucepan (the contents will become extremely hot). Stir the mixture over low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Now add the broken chocolate chunks and warm steadily to 250°F (120°C).  If you don’t have a thermometer on hand, you can  try placing a drop of cold water into a saucer and then adding a bit of your toffee to it. As it cools,  it will show the setting stage it has reached. For a soft caramel, roll it into a soft ball. The hotter it becomes the more toffee-like it will be.

Remove the pan from the heat and place it on a cold surface. When it has settled and reached 140°F (60°C), the hash can be gently and safely stirred into the mixture.

Once it has cooled down enough to handle, pour it into a buttered 8-inch tin. You can choose to either cut them into squares (you should end up with about 30 or so) or roll them into éclairs. Dipping them in melted chocolate is highly advised.
