How to Make THC Infused Candy Apples for Halloween

Halloween is the one day when we seek out being scared. We even stand in line at haunted houses for pleasure and cover our eyes while the knife-wielding killer chases air-headed teenagers who always run upstairs when everyone knows it’s a bad idea.

But in our opinion, at our cannabis dispensary Greeley Gallery, it’s not the tricks, but the treats that make Halloween one of the best holidays ever. This is why we wanted to share our favorite Halloween indulgent. The infamous candied apple, except we include cannabis in its creation to make it even better.

What You’ll Need

Candied apples have been a staple of Halloween since 1908 when William Kolb dropped an apple in his candied syrup and accidentally created one of the best inventions known to humankind. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but you get our point.

It’s hard to improve upon perfection, but we think we did it when we added cannabis to the ingredients. So, without further ado, we’ll teach you how to do it yourself. The best part is, this version is less messy and easier to eat.

First, you’ll need to gather some ingredients. Head to your nearest grocery store and pick up:

    • 6 of your favorite apples (Greeley Gallery recommends green Granny Smith apples)
    • 1 bag of caramel
    • 1 can of evaporated milk
    • 2 cups of chocolate chips
    • Medium length wooden skewers
    • Parchment paper
    • Icing if that’s your jam
    • Any other candy you want for toppings
    • 1 cannabis-infused milk chocolate (which we’re happy to provide)

Steps

Once you gather everything on the list, the fun part begins. Grab a friend and put on some music while you create a delightful treat. Ready? Let’s get started.

    • Place a layer of parchment paper on a cookie sheet, then pour and even out your chosen toppings on a separate plate. Coconut flakes, M&Ms, or even sprinkles, you can choose any topping that sounds good to you.
    • Grab a large saucepan and warm the caramels and milk together over medium-low heat. You want it to become a smooth consistency without lumps. Make sure to stir regularly to keep the caramel from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Once done, remove the pan from the heat and let it sit for about five minutes.
    • Take the wooden skewer and insert it into the top of each apple. Then roll the apples over the caramel evenly and place them on the cookie sheet with parchment with the skewer facing up.
    • Next, while the caramel is still sticky, roll each apple on the plate with your chosen toppings.
    • Once your apples are covered in caramel and your toppings, place them in the fridge to solidify the caramel.
    • After roughly 30 minutes, take the apples out and remove their cores. You can do this using a knife, but please be careful. Then set the apples aside for a moment.
    • Take the chocolate chips and the THC-infused chocolate bar you got from Greeley Gallery and place both of them in a microwavable bowl. Heat for about 30 seconds at a time and stir until the chocolate is melted.
    • Dip your candy and caramel-covered apple slices in the chocolate and enjoy!

Of course, you don’t have to slice the apple. You’re welcome to keep it intact and roll the apple over the chocolate so you can bite straight into it if you want. But we’ve found that slicing them makes it easier to eat and helps you control how much of the chocolate you’re ingesting.

Final Thoughts

Halloween is one of the best holidays ever invented, and the candied apple is a staple. There are plenty of ways to make them with endless options of toppings to choose from.

However, we encourage you to be safe. Edibles feel stronger than inhaling cannabis, and when too much is consumed, you may feel more paranoid or anxious, which could ruin your night instead of enhancing it. If you have questions about tolerance or dosage, please ask our staff. We care about our customers. Have fun, but also be safe!
