Baked apple chips with cannabis-infused caramel dip
There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a handful of freshly baked apple chips, and if they’re paired with a hearty helping of cannabis-infused caramel, you’ll be sure to enjoy the trip.
What are apple chips?
Apple chips are just like regular chips only they aren’t deep-fried or cooked in fatty oils which means that they’re way better for your health. With an intense crunch and creamy finish, this dessert is just the thing for an elevated party or a snack when you’ve got the munchies.
Apple chips recipe
These homemade apple chips aren’t infused until they're dipped, which makes them an excellent option while serving guests who might not want to partake in the power of cannabis.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 2-2 ½ hours
- 5-6 large apples
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- Sharp knife
- Baking sheets (2)
- Parchment paper
Preheat the oven to 200°F.
Wash, peel, and core all of the apples.
Cut the apple pieces into slices under 1/3 of an inch. Any larger and they’ll no longer be crispy like chips, though they will still taste amazing.
Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper, and spread the slices out with some room to breathe.
Bake the apple slices in the oven at 200°F for 1 hour on a rack in the middle of the oven.
Move the oven shelf down by one rung and proceed to bake the apple chips for another 1-1 ½ hours or until they are golden brown and slightly crispy on the outside.
Once you’re satisfied with the texture of the apples, turn off the oven and move them to the top rack for 1 hour. Here, they will continue cooking on the residual heat, reducing the risk of scalding.
Once the hour is up, remove the baking sheets from the oven and leave them to cool on a wire rack for 2-3 minutes while you make the dip.
Cannabis-infused caramel dip
This homemade caramel dip is fast, easy, and delicious on just about anything you can imagine from ice cream to donuts, fruit, and everything in between, including apple chips.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Servings: 1 cup
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup heavy cream (room temperature)
- 6 tablespoons cannabutter
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Rubber spatula
- Dip bowl
Heat the granulated sugar over medium to low heat until it turns into small clumps and then eventually a delightfully dark syrup, whisking frequently to avoid burning the mixture.
When the sugar is completely melted it’s time to toss in the cannabutter, stirring vigorously to avoid the two ingredients separating.
Once the cannabutter has melted, you can start adding the cream in small amounts, whisking as you go to ensure it’s thoroughly incorporated.
Running out of cream is an indication it’s time to move on to the next step, which is to turn off the heat, toss in the salt, and leave the whole thing to cool for a few minutes.
Pour the caramel dip into a serving bowl and offer it alongside apple chips, or any other snack you might enjoy.
