Dulce de Leche Weed Banana Caramel Cupcakes make great edibles treats or DIY cannabis gifts from your kitchen.
Rich caramel blends perfectly with bananas in these indulgent cannabis cupcakes, topped with a creamy Dulce de Leche Icing in one of my all-time favorite marijuana recipes.
Use decarboxylated Kief or Hash to medicate this recipe. Find more information on how to make and cook with kief and hash at this link.
Freezer Friendly Cannabis Cupcakes
Store baked cupcakes in the freezer, either frosted or unfrosted. A gallon size zip-top plastic storage bag makes a good container. Make 2 layers, separated by a sheet of waxed paper, then remove just the amount you need whenever you want a treat. If you choose to frost later you can freeze covered plastic containers of icing separately. Thaw at room temperature for 20 minutes before frosting cakes. (Hint: Cakes are easier to frost when frozen). Let frosted cupcake sit at room temperature at least 15 minutes before serving.

Beat in salt, vanilla extract, cream, and dulce de leche. Continue adding powdered sugar until you reach desired consistency. Mix on medium speed for about 4 minutes or until smooth and fluffy.
- Frost cupcakes when completely cool.
Decarboxylation and Dosing**Decarboxylation is the chemical process that changes the THC-A or acid in the raw cannabis plant into THC. (That’s right, there is no THC in raw cannabis). Learn how to properly decarboxylate your cannabis here. Click here to learn more about cooking with kief and hash.

Dulce de Leche is a caramelized sweetened condensed milk. Find it, packed in cans or plastic bottles, in Latin markets or the Latin foods section of most supermarkets.
I’ve got already made (and frozen) dosed caramels. Is there any way to use them instead? I know little to none about baking, but I do like weed.
Look for recipes that use caramels as an ingredient (Kraft and other companies that make the candies have lots of recipes on their website), then substitute your medicated caramels. I don’t think it would work in this particular recipe, but there are lots of recipes from caramel apples to cookies that do use them as an ingredient.
