Halloween CBD Treats for 2021

Looking from some adults-only Halloween CBD treats or drinks? Here are a few recipes everyone with a sweet tooth will enjoy. You can add CBD to almost anything you cook, bake, or make but these recipes make it easy. Ensure everyone you serve knows your treats are cannabis-infused. Yes, you can make all the same recipes without cannabis for those who prefer.

CBD-Infused Chocolate Coffee Truffles

These truffles are a chocolate lover’s dream come true! It is easier to make this recipe with two sets of hands and it is crucial that you don’t pause between steps, unless timing is specified below. Feel free to substitute the CBD for an orange liquor, peppermint liquor, Kahlua, or Bailey’s Irish Cream. A high percentage dark chocolate will deliver a classic truffle but feel free to substitute flavored chocolate or gourmet chocolate of choice.

Ingredients

  • 9 oz 60% dark chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons cane sugar or white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Holmes Organics CBD
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped roasted pecans

Directions

  1. Prepare an ice bath in a baking dish with cold water and a tray of ice. Set aside for step #5.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside for step #7.
  3. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat.
  4. Combine the heavy cream, butter, and sugar in a saucepan that will fit comfortably in the ice bath when ready. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  5. Remove the sugar mixture from the heat. Whisk in the CBD and stir in the melted chocolate.
  6. Place the saucepan in the ice bath and whip until the mixture is thick enough to hold shape. This should take about 5 minutes.
  7. Spoon the mixture into a pastry bag or a zip-top bag and cut a small section out to create a piping bag. This video shows you how, but you’ll be using truffle chocolate instead of frosting.
  8. Pipe out about 2 teaspoons at a time, gently mold into a ball, and place on a parchment or wax paper-lined cookie sheet. This process is messy, but we promise it’s worth it in the end.
  9. Refrigerate in an airtight container overnight or for at least 2 hours before serving.
  10. Mix the cocoa powder, espresso powder, and pecans in a small bowl, and roll the truffles in the mixture before serving. Feel free to get creative with the topping, rolling in powdered sugar, cocoa, or Halloween colored sugar crystals.
  11. Refrigerate and serve for up to 2 weeks—but they’re so good they won’t last that long.

CBD Caramel Apples

There are two ways to make this recipe. The fastest and easiest method is to purchase store-bought caramels, or you can make your own caramel from scratch. We’ll highlight the easy recipe first, but also include how to make your own caramel. If you are using store-bought caramels feel free to experiment with fun flavors.

Ingredients

  • 8 cold apples, green Granny Smith is best for a sweet-tart dessert
  • 20 ounces of store-bought soft caramels
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 30 drops Holmes Organics CBD
  • caramel apple sticks, lollipop sticks, or popsicle sticks
  • toppings of choice—chopped nuts, Halloween sprinkles, drizzled melted chocolate, crushed toffee, M&Ms, coconut, and more

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or use a silicone baking sheet layered on top of a sturdy metal baking sheet. If you don’t have either, you can grease a pan with butter.
  2. Wash and dry your apples and insert the lollipop stick into the top of each apple.
  3. Add the caramels and heavy cream to a small saucepan under medium-low heat.
  4. Cook until the caramels are smooth and melted, stirring occasionally.
  5. Once melted, stir in the CBD. Don’t stir too much or you will create air bubbles.
  6. Reduce heat to low and dip apples one-by-one into the caramel mixture.
  7. Shake and scrape away excess caramel, especially from the bottom of the apple.
  8. Roll in your topping of choice.
  9. Once all apples are caramel coated, place them in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes prior to serving.
  10. Wrap in cellophane to keep fresh.
  11. Serve the same day or within the next 7 days.

DIY Caramel

Here is what you need if you don’t want to use store-bought caramels. Be patient, as making caramel from scratch is an art form.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar—either light or dark
  • 1/4 cup room temperature unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 30 drops Holmes Organics CBD
  • candy thermometer
  • pastry brush

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients except the vanilla and CBD in a saucepan.
  2. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the butter melts.
  3. Do not adjust the temperature during this process, remain at an even medium heat to ensure caramelization.
  4. To keep the mixture from creeping up the sides of the pan, use a damp pastry brush to brush down the sides.
  5. Add your candy thermometer and let the mixture bubble until it reaches at least 235 degrees, but no more than 240 degrees. This will take about 20 minutes.
  6. Once you reach temperature, remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla and CBD. Too much stirring will create air bubbles.
  7. Thicken and cool for at least 10 minutes, but it may take up to 25 minutes for the mixture to be cool enough to dip your apples in.
  8. Dip apples one-by-one into the caramel mixture.
  9. Shake and scrape away excess caramel, especially from the bottom of the apple.
  10. Roll in your topping of choice.
  11. Once all apples are caramel coated, place them in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes prior to serving.
  12. Wrap in cellophane to keep fresh.
  13. Serve the same day or within the next 7 days.

Black Cherry CBD Martini

This martini is fast, easy, and unique. Remember, you can add CBD to any alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage, but it must be shaken with a shaker, blended in a blender, or whisked in. If adding CBD to a hot beverage, whisk it in as the final step prior to garnishing.

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces black cherry soda
  • 6 ounces vodka
  • 2 ounces Chambord
  • 2 mL Holmes Organics CBD
  • White or Halloween colored sugar

Directions

  1. Rim two martini glasses with sugar.
  2. Divide the black cherry soda evenly between the glasses.
  3. Add the vodka, Chambord, and CBD to a shaker with ice and shake for about 10 seconds.
  4. Pour evenly between the two glasses on top of the black cherry soda. Don’t be tempted to shake carbonated beverages as it will make a foaming mess.
  5. Enjoy!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
