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
