  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup light or dark
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 droppers of Joy Organics Orange CBD Tincture
  • OR
  • 2 drops organic orange essential oil mixed into your favorite unflavored CBD tincture see note above


  • Lightly oil a 5 -inch X 9 -inch loaf pan, and line the bottom and at least halfway up the sides with parchment paper. Alternately use a silicone loaf pan with no prep needed (see notes above).
  • Place half and half in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, add butter and heat until butter is melted. Gently stir to combine well.
  • Gently stir in corn syrup, sugar, brown sugar, and salt until combined. Place lid on the pot and cook for 1 minute.
  • Remove lid and attach a candy thermometer to the pan. Cook without stirring until the mixture reaches 245 degrees F then immediately remove from heat and quickly stir in CBD tincture (or tincture and drops of essential oil). Pour mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Let stand until cool (place in fridge to hasten the process). Then use parchment paper to remove caramels from pan. Cut into 4 long rows by 6 short rows to make 24 individual candies.
