Even though being healthy is number one on most stoner’s lists of things to be, we all need a little junk food now and then. For those of you that enjoy butterscotch, this recipe is definitely for you! They’re super easy to make and they also make really good party favors, in case you’re looking for something simple and cute. Or, as always, you can just enjoy them by yourself!
1/4 to 1 teaspoon butterscotch flavoring
1/3 cup corn syrup
1 to 2 teaspoon(s) citric acid (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons cannabis tincture
Liquid food coloring
Take a cookie sheet and turn it upside down. Cover it with parchment paper and coat the paper with cooking oil. If you’re going to use molds for your pops, be sure that you grease the mold pan now, prepare the sticks, and place the mold on the cookie sheet/parchment paper. Now grab a medium saucepan and put the water, sugar, cream of tartar, and corn syrup together and put the burner on medium heat. Stir everything together with a wooden spoon until the crystals of sugar have dissolved.
Use a pastry brush soaked with warm water to wipe any grains of sugar off of the sides of the pan. Continue to stir the mixture while you do this. Once the substance starts to boil, stop stirring and place a thermometer in the pan. Don’t let the thermometer touch the bottom or sides of the pan, as it will throw off the measurement. The temperature needs to reach 300 degrees and then remove the pan from the heat. Let the syrup cool until it reaches 275 degrees and add in the tincture, citric acid, flavor, and color.
Take the syrup and pour it in to the molds that you have prepared. If you chose to not use the molds, pour small circles on to the parchment paper and place a stick in each one of them. Let the candy set for about ten minutes until the substance hardens. Wrap them up and they’re ready to be eaten! For an added bonus, you can heat up some butterscotch candies in a small pan until they are melted and you can dip each pop in to the liquid candy. This will give them an extra boost of butterscotch flavor!
