How to Make Cannabutter Jolly Rancher
1.) Prepare and make your Cannabis butter first. (Click this link to see Cannabutter recipe).
2.) Prepare your tools by coating them with the non-stick spray. Coat all your tools including the spatula and measuring cups and spoons (This will give you an easier time dealing with the corn syrup and sugar)
3.) Sift your sugar to ensure fine consistency of the Cannabis Jolly Rancher. In your large Saucepan pour in white sugar,corn syrup and water and mix a little bit. Place the pot on the stove over medium heat and position the thermometer. Let it boil until the sugar has melted thoroughly and let it reach 260 degrees F.
4.) Once you are a few degrees before you reach the correct temperature around 240 degrees F, you can now add the food coloring. (whatever you prefer) and still do not mix the liquid sugar.
5.) Remove from heat once it reaches 300 degrees F and add in your preferred flavoring.
6.) Add Cannabutter or Kief and Mix everything well using a whisk for the next 2 mins or until the mixture cools down for a little bit.
7.) Prepare your molds by coating it with the non stick spray for easy unmolding later on.
8.) Pour your weed jolly ranchers warm liquid mixture into the molds. (The liquid candy hardens pretty fast so you have to be quick in doing this)
9.) Set the molds aside and let this cool down and harden. Prepare your table for unmolding by sprinkling generous amounts of powdered sugar on the table. (This is so that the stick Cannabis infused candies will not stick together.)
10.) Unmold your Cannabutter Jolly Rancher Candies on the powdered sugar and make sure each one is coated with it to ensure they don’t stick together and Viola! Store in a dry container and take this with you for a dose of Cannabis whenever or wherever you are! Enjoy!
