So, let’s not dally any longer; come along on a culinary adventure where sugary delight meets a dash of zest.

Sticky Cannabis-Infused Candy Apple Recipe

Ingredients: 

  • 4 medium apples (Granny Smith or Honeycrisp would be splendid) 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup 
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup cannabis-infused butter (homemade or store-bought; tailor it to your liking) 
  • Red food coloring (optional, for that classic vibrant look)
  • 200g quality dark or milk chocolate 
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, or walnuts work great) 

Instructions: 

  1. Begin by thoroughly washing and drying the apples. Firmly insert a stick into the stem end of each apple, setting the stage for a delightful treat. 
  2. In a saucepan at medium heat, meld together the cannabis-infused butter, sugar, corn syrup, and unsalted butter. Stir it vigilantly until it attains a temperature of 300°F (the crucial hard crack stage) on the candy thermometer. 
  3. When the syrup reaches the ideal temperature, take it off the heat. Stir in the aromatic cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract, adding a splash of red food coloring if you’re aiming for that radiant look. 
  4. Swiftly but with a steady hand, submerge each apple into the candy concoction, making sure it’s generously and evenly coated. Use a tilting motion to ensure every bit is covered in the sweet mixture. 
  5. Melt the chocolate in a microwave or over a double boiler until it’s silky smooth. Dip the candy-coated apples into the chocolate, letting it embrace the already glorious layer. Immediately roll it over the chopped nuts spread out on a plate, allowing them to adhere to the chocolate layer, creating a delightful crunch. 
  6. Place the triple-layered apples on a parchment-lined tray to cool at room temperature, letting each layer set perfectly to form a tantalizing, crunchy exterior.
  7. When the candy shell solidifies, your infused candy apples are all set to be devoured. Slice them into wedges to facilitate a delightful eating escapade, appreciating the symphonic fusion of sweet, spicy, and cannabis notes with each morsel. 

Feel free to adjust the quantity of cannabis-infused butter according to your personal preference and the potency of your infusion.
