Cannabis Snack Mix

Published

on

This snack mix is a staple at my house. It’s a great everyday snack, yet looks elegant served in a fancy dish. Store it in an airtight container, it should last two weeks –ALTHOUGH IT’S USUALLY EATEN THE FIRST DAY!

The beauty of this recipe is that it is a base recipe in that by changing ingredients and spices you can change it from a sweet to a savory treat.

This can be changed to incorporate the flavors you are craving — change the cinnamon to garlic powder and use corn syrup instead of maple syrup, and you have a sweet garlic chili nut mix.

THE COMBINATIONS ARE ENDLESS

Change pretzel sticks to cereal mix ( i.e. Chex Mix) and mixed raw nuts to raw peanuts, add in some melted peanut butter to the corn syrup to make a glaze: you have a peanut cereal mix.

Recipe:

Ingredients:

 3 cups mixed raw nuts 
2 tbsp butter
Cannabis tincture or distillate premeasured
 3 tbsp brown sugar (or coconut sugar or brown sugar substitute)
 ½ tsp cinnamon
 ¾ tsp mild chili powder
2 tbsp maple syrup (or sugar-free syrup)
 2 cups pretzel sticks
1 tsp flaky or coarse sea salt


Preheat the oven to 325ºF.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter on low, add the tincture or distillate, and mix well.
Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, chili powder & maple syrup, whisk together. 
In a large mixing bowl, toss the nuts & pretzel sticks together.
Pour the butter mixture onto the nut mix & toss until evenly coated. 
Sprinkle on the salt & toss well.
Roast for 20 minutes or until light golden brown
Allow to cool completely & break up the mixture. 
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.


MEDICATING THE MIX

Do the math on how much cannabis to add to your recipe
Check your formula for determining the potency of your finished product.
Example: 12 servings x 5mg = 60 mg THC or CBD per recipe.
The recipe yield is 12 servings of approximately ½ cup each

HOW TO MAKE MEDICATED CURD:

Unless you are just eating the curd with some berries and whipped cream, you probably are making tablespoon size servings.

This recipe makes approximately 1½ pints or 48 tablespoons of curd. If making tarts, or other bite size servings, use a smaller amount of THC than you would for a large brownie. A portion of 2½ – 5mg/tablespoon is plenty for most patients. At 2½ mg/tart— most people that are regular patients can handle a couple tarts comfortably. Believe me, they will eat more than 1 tart, so don’t over medicate.

How you medicate the curd depends on what you are using to medicate them. If using distillate, add it to the melted butter when it begins to cool from melting prior to adding to recipe. First heat a cup of water and put your syringe of distillate in to help melt it. Then measure the THC you will add, add it to still-warm butter and stir for 3 minutes. Once it is mixed add it to the curd mixture and proceed to cook the curd.

If using a tincture or oil that doesn’t need to be heated, it can be added once the curd has begun cooling, before it thickens. Again, stir for 2-3 minutes to incorporate fully.

If using Flower—look for our special recipe for making CannaButter.

*For these instructions we will use 5mg/slice as our measurement.
To begin, follow the instructions on the right to prepare your medicated butter. Preheat oven
to 325 degrees F/175 degrees C. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan. Place prepared medicated
butter in a large bowl. Add the sugar and mix well. Add the room temperature eggs and the
extract. Stir to combine. In a separate bowl, mix sour cream and mashed bananas. Add to
butter and eggs and mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl.

choice, or even chocolate!

out clean. Cool on a wire cooling rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool
further. Cut into 16 slices, wrap, and mark as MEDICATED 5 MG/SLICE. Securely store
away and out-of-reach from children and pets.

HOW TO MAKE MEDICATED BUTTER:

To medicate butter, use cannabis distillate from your local dispensary. Distillate comes in a plastic syringe, and is stiff and difficult to handle without these tips:
1 Fill a microwave-safe cup half full of water and microwave for 1 minute.
2 Remove cup of water from microwave and add syringe to water. Let sit for 1-3 minutes. This heat will make the distillate easier to handle.
3 Add the distillate to your melted butter. Stir, stir, stir. Then add while still warm to the recipe when it calls for butter.
4 Prepare food according to recipe directions.
