Homemade Delta-8 Infused Caramel Chews

Caramels are one of the easiest candies you can make at home.

Here is a simple Delta-8 infused recipe that you could easily remember and whip up any time. We promise they’ll be the best caramels you’ve ever had. 

Friendly alert: They’re so good that it’s almost impossible to eat just one piece!


  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups light corn syrup
  • 24 ounces evaporated milk (2 cans)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 grams Delta8 Distillate (10mg per piece)


  1. Line an 18×13” baking sheet pan or jelly roll pan with parchment paper. (If you don’t have parchment paper you can generously butter the pan.)
  2. Add 2 sticks of butter to a large heavy-bottom saucepan over medium heat and let melt. When melted, add the 2 grams of Delta8 distillate. Stir constantly until fully incorporated.
  3. Add sugar and Karo syrup to butter and distillate. Stir over medium heat until mixture begins to boil, about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Gradually add the evaporated milk, one can at a time. A can takes about 10 minutes to slowly add while stirring constantly. You add the evaporated milk slowly to maintain heat and keep a boil because the milk will curdle if you don’t.
  5. Stir the mixture constantly, scraping the sides occasionally until it reaches the “hardball stage” (about 250-266 degrees F or 121-130 C on a candy thermometer). If you like your caramels softer, cook to the lower temp range. If you like them firmer, cook to a higher temp range. Be patient and don’t rush, it will be worth it in the end.
  6. Once you reach 250-266 degrees F / or the hardball stage, remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
  7. Pour caramels into the prepared pan. Refrigerate until cooled and hardened. (Best if you refrigerate them overnight, or for several hours. They will be easier to cut and wrap). 
  8. The caramel will seem hard in the fridge after they’re set, but it will be softer at room temperature. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut into pieces. Cutting using 20 columns and 8 rows will make 160 pieces and each piece will be 10-12mg.
