How to Make Cannabis Buttermints?
- 1/2 cup cannabis-infused butter.
- 2 cups powdered sugar.
- 1-2 teaspoons mint extract (adjust to taste).
- Food coloring (optional).
- Extra powdered sugar for dusting.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cannabis-infused butter and powdered sugar. Mix well until the ingredients are fully combined.
- Add the mint extract to the mixture. If you want to add food coloring, do so at this stage and mix until the color is evenly distributed.
- Once the mixture has a smooth and consistent texture, you can shape it into a log or roll it into small balls. If the mixture is too soft, you can refrigerate it for a short time to make it easier to handle.
- If you’ve shaped the mixture into a log, wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours or until firm. If you’ve made small balls, you can place them on a parchment-lined tray.
- Once the cannabis butter mints have hardened, remove them from the refrigerator and slice the log into individual mints or leave the balls as they are.
- Dust the mints with powdered sugar to prevent sticking. Store the Cannabis Butter Mints in an airtight container in the refrigerator until you’re ready to enjoy them.
Tips for Cannabis Butter Mints
Here are some tips to make sure your cannabis butter mints come out creamy and delicious:
- Accurate Dosing: Be precise with the amount of cannabis-infused butter you use in the recipe to control the dosage of THC in each mint. Knowing the potency of your cannabis butter is crucial for responsible consumption.
- Test Potency: Before making a large batch, it’s advisable to test the potency of your cannabis-infused butter. Start with a small amount to gauge its effects.
- Storage and Labeling: Store your Cannabis Butter Mints in an airtight container in the refrigerator to maintain freshness. Clearly label the container with a warning about the presence of cannabis, especially if the mints are kept alongside regular treats.
- Responsible Consumption: Educate yourself and others about responsible cannabis consumption. Communicate the potency of the mints to those who may consume them, and remind them to start with a small amount.
- Flavor Adjustments: Taste the mixture as you go along and adjust the amount of mint extract according to your preference. You can also experiment with other flavorings to personalize the mints.
- Coloring Options: If you choose to add food coloring, use natural or cannabis-friendly coloring options. Some people prefer to avoid artificial colors, and natural alternatives like spinach or beet juice can provide a subtle tint.
- Handling the Mixture: If the mixture is too soft to handle, refrigerate it for a short time before shaping. This will make it easier to roll into balls or form a log.
- Uniform Sizing: Aim for uniform sizing to ensure consistent dosing. If you’re making individual mints, use a measuring tool or your hands to create evenly sized portions.
- Storage Time: While cannabutter mints can be stored for some time, it’s best to consume them within a reasonable timeframe to maintain freshness and potency.
