Cereal thriller: Candy corn inspires these weed-infused crisped rice treats
Halloween recipe: Plain ol’ crisped rice treats are a classic, but why not add some candy corn flavor and shape them up?
A survey of my favorite cannabis enthusiasts stirred up some debate on the question of their favorite Halloween candy. The winner? Candy corn!
(Rounding out the top results: Butterfinger and a tie between Baby Ruth and M&M’s.)
There are lots of polls out there these days, and this one happily didn’t cause anyone distress. And candy corn is not orange for the most part. Circus peanuts are currently out of favor in my social circle.
This recipe combines the glorious flavors of candy corn and crisped rice treats. It is the best of both worlds. So easy to infuse, the ingredients are simply stirred into the butters. You can make the bars stronger by using more cannabutter in place of the regular butter, and vice versa. Not the least bit scary. This election season is scary enough.
This particular infusion was made with the hybrid Cherry Pie — potent yet relaxing. The fruity strain inspired me to try this recipe with a whole other flavor profile.
I left out the candy corn and added flavors to each color. The yellow was flavored with pineapple extract, the orange with mango and the white center with a hint of coconut. I thought it was quite clever — and it gave me an excuse to eat lots more while I experimented.
