    This looks DELICIOUS! If only Marijuana wasn’t so expensive!

    • Millie

      Grow your own…..and use only good bud. Your product will only be good as the ingredients. Using shake is using the trash, save that for tinctures.

    How many caramels does this recipe makes??

    • CBD activist

      good question. Funny it never got an answer… ?

    • carlos w

      well it really depends how you cut them

    • YesInDeeDee

      see the size of the pan ? 9″ by 13″ and most likely 1 ” tall

  • judie

    does it take 2 – of 2 1/4 cup of brown sugar

  • kira

    The recipe lists 2 1/4 cups brown sugar twice. Can you use 1 cup karo syrup instead of the second dose of sugar, and would it still bake correctly in the oven if you do so?

  • AlexR

    So confused? When do they go into the oven?

    • Hoppy

      The caramel dos not go in the oven ball the mixture is melted and cooked to the desired temperature (use a candy thermometer). The caramel thickens as it cools, then you can cut it. You can buy light organic corn syrup at Whole Foods, but I’m going to try using Rice Syrup instead b

      • Hoppy

        *but, not ball

  • Sarijuana

    This has got to be the worst written recipe I have ever seen. The sugar is listed twice, the over is preheated and never mentioned again, and how do you add vanilla to a “ball” of caramel. You don’t. When do you put it in the oven, and in what? The pot you’re cooking it in? The pyrex dish? Worst instructions ever. I need to look elsewhere. Johnny….this recipe needs some clarity. The author needs some focus.

    I agree. This recipe is terrible. Don’t waste your time. My guess is that the caramels don’t go in the oven. You heat the caramel mixture to 245 degrees (firm ball stage in candy making) in a pot on the stove. You definitely don’t want to use 4.5 C of brown sugar. Substitute 1 cup of light corn syrup for the second 2.25 C listed on this recipe. Here is a much better recipe…

    • Leanne WoodsFitch

      It’s THE SAME RECIPE !!!! EXACTLY….. GEEEZZZ !!!!!!

  • Shane Justice

    They’re not that confusing. They don’t go into the oven, the temp is for your stove top. You don’t put 4.5 c of brown sugar, this is an obvious typo. You remove the mixture from the heat when it reaches the “soft ball” stage and stir in the vanilla. They’re not the best instructions, but anyone who has ever cooked anything should be able to discern them

    • Leanne WoodsFitch

      WHERE has COMMON SENSE gone ?????

  • AM Sunshine

    The link for the cannabutter does not work.

  • Heloooooo

    If you use any liquid, then baking in the oven in necessary. I looked up other caramel recipes and there are two types: wet and dry. If you want a liquid caramel then you want to use something like condensed milk, otherwise don’t use it, and look up other recipes!

  • Jay, son

    “remove from heat the heat” love it.

  • Drunkntheory

    Thc starts to be destroyed at 184 degrees

    • Sean Hodges

      yeah, degrees celsius maybe.

      • YesInDeeDee

        how

        • painkills2

          Try looking it up at High Times magazine.

          • Millie

            Research Decarboxilation

          • painkills2

            Or just research “marijuana butter”? :)

        • FriendlyPranker
    • Scott

      Here in Ca. They deliver.

  • stephanie

    I guess it hardens over time? i thought you had to stretch caramel to make the candy toffee like? and you dont want to put it in the over after its already hard.. you’ll just melt it…lol so…

    • Lisa

      You do not stretch caramel. Caramel is poured and left undisturbed to cool. It will harden as it cools, but it won’t be like the commercial style caramels. It will be more like the softer, old fashioned style. However, you do pull and stretch taffy.

      • stephanie

        nice to know thanks

  • Yomamamusic

    This recipe refers to using a candy thermometer, and you will need to adjust the temperature depending upon altitude. I am going to try two ways…as directed in the recipe and putting the butter in last after the temperature has dropped…to see if there is a difference in the result.

  • gigfreak

    much easier way.. melt a bag of brachs carmels in double boiler stir in 1/2 cup butter. Done!

    • bazingg

      Probably more chemicals too

    • stephanie

      i like that idea better lol

    • FriendlyPranker

      I made this today it wasn’t that difficult. I ended up rolling the caramel pieces in a mixture of almonds and sugar.

    • Diane Win

      Problem is, is that it will become a more gooey caramel that way, but still sounds dank :)

  • FriendlyPranker

    I decided to make this today and it turned out perfect. I did use a candy thermometer. Here’s the video link and also the link to making canna butter with a crock pot.
