Ingredients

Here’s a list of the necessary ingredients needed in order to make some killer Cannabis Popcorn Bars for you and your friends:

  • 8 Tablespoons Cannabis-Infused Butter
  • 8 Cups Popped Popcorn (Caramel Corn, or a mix of the two)
  • 6 ½ Cups Mini Marshmallows
  • 5 Tablespoons Peanut Butter (Smooth, Creamy)
  • 1 ½ Cup Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Peanuts (Chopped Up)
Americans have a sort of reputation for taking things to the next level. Sometimes, that can directly translate as taking things too far. Which is a fair assessment. I mean, we are from the land of the McRib, after all. That thing is a delicious abomination that is far more polarizing than people anticipated.
These Cannabis Popcorn Bars Are Next-Level Amazing
But, on the other side of the coin, that reputation could bring about great things that otherwise would have never existed had it not been for some brave soul who decided to push the limits with their creation.

Life-saving medicines, energy-efficient automobiles, popcorn bars…I mean the list goes on and on.
Okay, sure, perhaps popcorn bars aren’t held in such high esteem as those other accomplishments, but I truly believe that they should be.
For decades, this country had been forced to enjoy one type of breakfast bar: the Rice Krispy treat. Which, don’t get me wrong, is fantastic in its own right. But, after years and years of the same old thing, one can’t help but yearn for something new.
Enter: Popcorn Bars.

These unique pieces of cinematic-inspired greatness channel all of the enjoyable qualities of Rice Krispy treats but puts a whole new spin on the flavor profile. They really are a one-of-a-kind dessert, in my humble opinion. And I’d love to shake the hand of the person who came up with this dreamlike post-dinner delight.
While that particular person’s identity may never become common knowledge, there is one that I do know for sure, and that is that these Popcorn Bars are downright delicious! But, as satisfying as the current recipe is, I believe there’s a way to knock this dish up a peg or two, and it would only take one ingredient to catapult its awesomeness to new heights.
Obviously, given the title (and our website), the secret ingredient is going to be: cannabis.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be!

This recipe for Cannabis Popcorn Bars is so good, you may never feel the need to pick up a Rice Krispy treat ever again. I know that’s a shocking statement. I’m aware of that, but if you follow this simple recipe, I’m confident that you’ll be sharing that same sentiment after your very first bite.
But, before we get too deep into the details and ingredients for this recipe, there’s one thing that you’ll need to do before anything else can happen. You need to get your hands on some potent cannabis-infused butter.
Luckily, since we live in such a weed-friendly era of history, there are dispensaries to be found in almost every neighborhood. So, you can feel free to head on down to your local cannabis club and purchase a tub (or two) of THC butter. But, if you’re like me and enjoy getting your hands dirty in the kitchen, I’m happy to quickly breakdown how to make cannabis-infused butter at home.
In order to accomplish this tremendously simple (and rewarding) goal, you’ll want to get your hands on roughly 8-10 grams of cannabis flower and break down the buds just a little. You don’t want anything to be finely ground yet, that will come in due time.
Once you’ve gone ahead and crumbled down those nugs, place them atop a parchment-lined baking sheet. Then, you’ll want to throw that baking sheet into a preheated oven at 240°F. Leave that sheet in there for 35-40 minutes.

This allows the cannabis to decarboxylate, and prepare its THC to be joined with another substance of your choosing. And, for this recipe, that is going to be butter.
When that time period has elapsed, remove the baking sheet from the oven and place it to the side for the time being. After you’ve done that, grab a large saucepan and place it over a heat source, with the setting placed on “medium.” In this saucepan, you’ll want to toss in a couple sticks of regular butter, along with a cup of water.
As the butter melts, now is the time you can finely grind up the rest of those buds. When you’re done with that, the butter should be melted completely. That’s when you’ll add in those broken down nugs. Stir these two ingredients together gently, then let them simmer together for upwards of 2 hours. That should be ample time for the THC to reposition itself within the butter’s elements.
When it’s ready to go, remove the saucepan from the heat source, and prepare a container for storage, by securing a cheesecloth over the opening for sifting purposes. Then, carefully pour in the contents from the saucepan, through the cheesecloth, to the container resting below. When the butter is fully drained, pick up the container, and place it in the fridge to toughen up a bit.
But that’s it. You just made cannabis-infused butter with minimal effort. Nicely done!

Instructions

  • When you’ve got all of those ingredients at the ready, you can head on over to your oven, and preheat it to a standard 350°F.
  • As that bad boy heats up, you can take the time to cover the entire bottom of a 9” pan with parchment paper. This will ensure that none of those delicious bars become stuck to the pan during the cooking process.
  • Then, grab a large saucepan, and toss your cannabis-infused butter into it. Let that butter melt, at which point, you can then add in 6 cups of marshmallows. Stir these two ingredients together until they are completely blended, and each element is totally melted. When you’re happy with its melted consistency, then (and only then) can you stir the peanut butter into the mix.
  • Now, you can sprinkle in the popcorn. Carefully fold the contents together until each piece is smothered in a healthy coating of deliciousness. After you’ve accomplished that goal, grab your pan, and dump in half of this popcorn-covered mixture. Be sure to spread it evenly throughout the parchment-lined pan for even cooking. Don’t be bashful about using your hands to make that happen.
  • When that’s all said and done, you can sprinkle some chocolate chips and peanuts on the top for a little added pizzazz. Then you can pour in the remaining popcorn mixture on top of that. Be sure to press down to make sure each side of the concoction is even.
  • Then, with any remaining chocolate chips and marshmallows you may have, scatter them atop this perfect-looking pan of popcorn-inspired greatness, before chucking it into the oven for 7 minutes or so. When your timer finally goes off, remove them from the oven and let them cool down on the counter for a while before tossing them into the fridge.
  • After a period of time spent in the chilly confines of the refrigerator, remove the Cannabis Popcorn Bars, and start chopping these bad boys up into little squares or strips – it’s completely up to you.
  • Other than that, the only thing left to do is grab a couple for yourself, head over to the couch, fire up a movie, load up a bowl, and enjoy the rest of the day.
