Get Saucy - Making Sauces with our Cannabis Caramels

Is there any more versatile topping than caramel sauce? It can be a thick and creamy dip for fruit, it can be a honey-like drizzle for warm desserts, and it can even form a hard shell on ice cream or popcorn! We wanted to apply this versatility to our effects-focused Cannabis Caramels (available in retailers across the state of Oregon) to empower you to use our edibles in more ways than you might have thought possible! In this combined recipe feature, you’ll find simple procedures for creating caramel sauces of a variety of consistencies to suit any dessert-enhancement need you may have :)

Dosing for each caramel sauce will be entirely dependent on how many cannabis caramels you use - do some simple math to calculate the approximate THC dose per even serving of your final caramel sauce (50mg THC per caramel/number of servings of sauce) so that you can dose appropriately. These recipe sizes are designed for personal or small group (2-3) use, and as such may contain higher than recommended THC doses for your personal needs. If you want to create larger batches of caramel sauce with lower THC doses per serving, you can add in non-cannabis caramel candies for the thicker caramel dip and hard shell recipes, or non-cannabis caramel topping sauce to the drizzle and crackle recipes to stretch the serving size and THC dosage for larger groups or lower-tolerance consumers.

When in doubt, as with all edibles, start low and go slow on consuming to avoid accidental overconsumption, and if you do find yourself feeling the effects of a THC overconsumption, use the tactics in our recent blog post to help yourself feel better.


Caramel Hard Shell

The simplest way to repurpose our caramel edibles - just melt and pour for a toothy hard shell on ice cream or any cold dessert!


Ingredients and Tools
1-2 Periodic edibles Cannabis Caramels
A double-boiler set up, gently simmering

Directions

Over the gentle double-boiler, melt your Periodic edibles cannabis caramel(s) until completely liquid. Working quickly with a non-stick spatula, pour the caramel sauce over the top of the dessert you want to have a hard shell (as seen in the image above). Allow the dessert to chill in the freezer for up to 5 minutes to finish solidifying if needed or desired. Hard shell will break with a spoon and begin to soften to a toothy caramel as you chew it - a multi-textural delight!

Caramel Drizzle Topping Sauce

An easy, honey-like sauce that’s perfect for adding an extra touch of sweetness to any dessert


Ingredients and Tools
1-2 Periodic edibles Cannabis Caramels
1 to 1.5 tsp water per caramel, depending on consistency desired
A double-boiler set up, gently simmering

Directions

Over the gentle double-boiler, melt your Periodic edibles cannabis caramel(s) until completely liquid. Add the water and stir thoroughly until the caramel sauce reaches the desired consistency for your use - more water will create a more spreadable, thin sauce, and less water will create a thicker sauce that may begin to set around the edges after a few minutes. Using a non-stick spatula, pour the caramel sauce over the dessert of your choice - this one works with almost anything, so get creative!

Caramel “Crackle” Coating

Think Caramel Popcorn - this coating is meant to be thin, brittle, and crackle on chewing for a fun texture!


Ingredients and Tools
2 Periodic edibles Cannabis Caramels
1/2 tsp water
1/2 tsp butter, softened
A double-boiler set up, gently simmering
Oven set to 275 degrees F

Directions

Over the gentle double-boiler, melt your Periodic edibles cannabis caramel(s) until completely liquid. Add the water and butter, and stir thoroughly until the caramel sauce is thinned out and no chunks of butter remain. Using a non-stick spatula, pour the caramel coating over popcorn, pretzels, or any other heat-resistant snack that needs a thin coat of crunchy caramel. Bake your coated item at 275 degrees for about 18-20 minutes, until the caramel is set and flaky. Be sure to monitor your oven temperature to ensure it consistently stays below 300 degrees F to avoid boiling off the active cannabis compounds.

Caramel Dip

A perfect dip for fruit, pretzels, shortbread cookies - anything you can imagine!


Ingredients and Tools
1-2 Periodic edibles Cannabis Caramels
1 to 1.5 tbsp sweetened condensed milk, per caramel
A double-boiler set up, gently simmering

Directions
Over a gentle double-boiler, melt the Periodic edibles cannabis caramel(s) until completely liquid. Add the appropriate amount of condensed milk, 1 to 1.4 tbsp per caramel used depending on the consistency you’d prefer for your dip. Once entirely combined, allow the dip to warm over the double boiler for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally to minimize bubble formation, until the mixture is uniform in color and consistency. Transfer to a small serving dish and serve with dippable treats - apple slices, strawberries, and pretzels work perfectly, but you can try anything your heart desires!
