  • Melt 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a large shallow saute pan over medium high heat. Add ½ cup popcorn kernels and mix until all kernels are coated.
  • Cover the pan.
  • Gently shake the pan by moving it back and forth over the burner. Once the kernels begin to pop consistently, increase the frequency of shaking the pan.
  • When the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan. Wait a few seconds and then remove the lid and transfer the kernels to a large mixing bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Melt 1 stick butter in a saucepan. Add 1 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and ½ teaspoon salt. Bring mixture to a boil and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and mix in 3 tablespoons bourbon, 1 teaspoon Infuse It CBD powder, and ¼ teaspoon baking soda.
  • Add ½ cup chopped pecans to the popcorn and mix. Pour the bourbon maple caramel over the popcorn and stir until well coated.
  • Transfer the popcorn to the lined baking sheet and spread it out in an even layer.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, gently stirring and rotating the pans halfway. Bake until popcorn is mostly dry and the caramel coating is crisp.
  • Remove and let cool before breaking up and serving. Enjoy

How to Freeze Butter

Butter is super easy to freeze. You can place it in the freezer in its original packaging and store it for up to a year. I suggest pre-cutting the butter based on use so you can easily break off what you need as you use it.

Shelf Life of Brown Sugar

Brown sugar can last indefinitely as long as it is stored properly. That means no exposure to air or moisture. Even when it bricks up, it is still safe and good to eat.
