    Have any of you candy makers had any luck using infused coconut oil instead of cannabutter?

    I just tried two different batches just substituting equal amount of oil instead of butter and the oil never incorporated. I followed the recipe exactly.

    -2 cups sugar
    -1/4 cup light corn syrup
    -1/2 cup CANNABUTTER (I used real butter, 1.5 sticks and a bit over 1/4 oz of good bud/some trim...after cooking and a good squeeze through the seive it came out to the 1/2 cup)

    -2 tablespoons water
    -2 tablespoons white wine vinegar (NOT red or apple)

    bring that mix slowly to 300 degrees

    I've done this with butter and it incorporated nicely, but not with the oil. I figured that coconut oil must be somewhat similar in properties to butter (saturated fat-wise)

    any thoughts?
