Why Caramel Pecan Popcorn Tastes so Good:
In the 19th century French settlers brought a praline recipe to Louisiana, where both sugar cane and pecan trees were plentiful. In New Orleans, pecans were substituted for almonds, and added cream to thicken the confection, what became known throughout the American South as praline.
When I started cooking with cannabis I didn’t want to make your typical canna brownies. So I created a praline confection made of canna butter, brown sugar, pecans and buttered popcorn. Not only did the buttery praline confection taste great, it was very potent and hard to stop eating the praline treat.
What You Will Need to Make Caramel Pecan Popcorn THC Praline:
15×10 rimmed baking pan
¾ Cup- Canna Butter
¾ cup of corn syrup (Dark or Light)
¾ cup of brown sugar packed (Dark or Light)
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
¾ tsp baking soda
2 (3.3-oz.) bags of microwave buttered popcorn
3 cups pecan halves
Decardoxylated Cannabis- 1 to 3.5 grams (THC-CBD-CBG)
Note: The darker the brown sugar or corn syrup, the more molasses it contains. Dark corn syrup has a more intense flavor profile. Dark corn syrups flavor bears a strong resemblance to real caramel, and it’s frequently used as a substitute for caramel. Light corn syrup, has a sweet, delicate flavor, making it an ideal sugar replacement.
Chef’s Notes: Light or Dark? It’s okay, if you’ve been using them interchangeably. There’s no problem to switch between the two based on what you have in your pantry, but to improve your sugar repertoire, make sure you also know the basics of Light or Dark sugars and syrups.
Tip: You can also add molasses to light corn syrup and create dark corn syrup
