Baseball has been widely recognized as America’s favorite pastime. For us at People’s, making homemade edibles is at the top of that list, but even if you can’t choose, there’s a great way to combine both activities. Baseball season is finally back, and (while we won’t be taken out to the game anytime soon) we can still enjoy both these pastimes in the comfort of our own homes.
It’s unlikely that anyone will be buying you peanuts and Cracker Jacks, so we’ve developed this recipe to help you amp up the home sports fan experience. Our cannabis-infused version of baseball’s most famous snack knocks it right out of the park. Even if the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim don’t win the game, you’ll still feel on top of the world with a big bowl of these by your side.
Homemade Edibles 101: Start With Cannabutter
When you’re making your own weed edibles, it’s important to make sure that you have the right amount of cannabis-infused ingredients first. For this recipe, we use infused butter, which you can make on the stove or in a slow cooker (like this CBD slow cooker cannabutter).
How to Make Your Cannabis Cracker Jacks at Home
To make this recipe, you will need:
Nonstick baking spray
1 cup popcorn kernels
1 cup salted cocktail peanuts
1 cup cannabutter, made with your favorite cannabis strain
1 cup maple syrup
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 baking pans (around 9” by 13” is best for the size)
1 large bowl
Use the nonstick baking spray to lightly coat your baking pans and the bowl.
Pop your popcorn kernels, then place them into the bowl. Add the peanuts.
Add the cannabutter, maple syrup, sugar, and salt to the saucepan. Melt the butter on low heat and stir the ingredients together.
(Note: If you do not have cannabutter, you can substitute by using 1 cup regular butter and 1 serving of your favorite cannabis tincture).
Once melted and combined, bring the mixture to a boil. Let it boil for 5 minutes. During this, do not stir.
Add the baking soda and vanilla extract. You can stir again! Make sure the mixture is well-combined. It may bubble and even smoke. This is normal.
Slowly pour the hot mixture over the popcorn and peanuts, stirring continuously as you do so. Make sure they are evenly coated.
Divide the caramel-coated popcorn and peanuts between your two baking pans. Bake for 1 hour at 250F, stirring every 15 minutes.
Let cool, then serve. Best enjoyed with a ballgame on TV.
