Blazin’ Bits and Bolts

A classic, nostalgic and forever beloved snack often enjoyed around the holidays. Perfect to make as party favours.

…or to devour all on your own (no shame, we’ve been there).

Why we love this recipe 

This classic recipe won’t disappoint. It can be quickly thrown together and requires minimal skill and effort. The low baking temperature makes it possible to directly infuse the bits and bolts with Take and Bake oil without worrying about THC degradation. Best of all,  this recipe is easily broken down into 1 cup servings that can be gifted to all of your pot-loving friends. 

Sweet, spicy and everything in between

We like to think of this recipe more as a guideline as opposed to a strict set of rules. If you like different types of nuts or cereals, use whatever you prefer. For example, sometimes we swap out the peanuts for almonds or cashews. 

If you love spice and you want to turn up the heat, add some chilli flakes or additional cayenne pepper to the butter and spice mix. If you like your bits and bolts a little sweeter, add an extra Tbsp of honey, or opt for ¼ cup of brown sugar instead. Add other spices and flavours you enjoy to the mix to make it your own. Every time we make this recipe, we do something a little different.

Mix mix mix!

Make sure you mix the butter and spice mixture with the cereal and nuts very well. Every single piece of your bits and bolts mixture should look wet and shiny. You don’t want wet and dry spots in your bits and bolts before baking or your THC dosing per serving will be way off.  

Sativa or Indica? Which To Choose.  

We could go either way on this one. If you’re making for a crowd ask what your guests prefer, or simply use whichever Take and Bake oil you prefer. 

Safe storage, always.

Twisted Extracts cannabis infused blazing' bits and bolts

Make sure your THC-infused creations are stored safely away from children and pets. You should also label the bag(s) or container(s) you use to store your bits and bolts in so no unsuspecting friends or family members consume it unaware. 

Enjoy!
