Marijuana-laced desserts are a classic. They're perfect in the morning when you need a pick-me-up to start your day. They're ideal in the evening when you're relaxing as you watch a good movie. If you're thinking about a great sweet treat that your friends are sure to love, a cannabis-based dessert is the answer. This is a great option for a large party when you're not exactly sure what to bring.

One cannabis yummy thingy has risen to the level of a beloved cult classic. That is the cannabis brownie. Cannabis brownies are widely consumed. Chocolate forms the perfect base from which to appreciate the many wonderful qualities of the brownie and cannabis at the same time. If you've never baked brownies before, you're in for a treat. If you don't know of a place that makes them in your community, you can make them yourself. All you need is a few simple ingredients and you're on your way.

Creating Your Own Recipe

If you've wondered how to make weed brownies, you're in luck. One of the great things about recipes for cannabis brownies is they are endlessly adaptable. Think of a recipe as a guide rather than a series of set rules. You're free to mix it up if you like. For example, if you like nuts, you can always add them to the finished product. Here's a pro tip: roasting the nuts for five or ten minutes will bring out the nutty flavor even more.

You can also add additional flavors of your own. Mint and peanut butter are good additions that bring it to the next level. Experimenting with different types of chocolate is a fun idea for your cannabis brownies. Some people like the classic milk chocolate. Dark chocolate or white chocolate adds interest and lets you put your own personal spin on the recipe.

It's also good to think about how much weed you want to add. A good option is just a little bit to start off with. Roughly an eighth of an ounce should be more than enough. You're going to want to grind it yourself or have someone else do it for you. That will make sure the finished product is fully blended throughout the brownie.

The Basics

The basic recipe for marijuana-laced brownies is simple. The trick is to have all the ingredients on hand before you start. That way, you can just get the whole thing in gear quickly. You're not worried about searching for an egg only to find you don't have it on hand.

You're going to need:

  • a stick and a half of unsalted butter,
  • four ounces of good chocolate,
  • one and three-fourths cup of coconut sugar,
  • half a teaspoon of salt,
  • three large eggs,
  • two teaspoons of vanilla extract,
  • one and three-fourths cup of flour,
  • and one-eighth of an ounce of finely ground cannabis.

Preheat your oven first. It should be 240 f. Toast the cannabis for fifty minutes. That will bring out the flavor and make it easier to mix with the brownies.

Melt the butter in the microwave until it's liquid. Add the cannabis and let simmer for 45 minutes. Strain it and discard the solids for use in other things like tea.

Add the cannabis butter along with the sugar, vanilla, and a sprinkling of salt. Mix in each egg carefully so they're perfectly blended. Add the flour carefully. Now is the time to add your additional ingredients like your toasted nuts or mint.

The entire batter goes into the baking sheet and the oven. Keep it there for about twenty-five minutes to half an hour. Use a skewer to check it's done to the texture you prefer. Let the brownies cool for another half an hour. Pull the entire square out and cut it into smaller squares. Top with dark chocolate or your favorite fruit syrup for even more deliciousness. Now you know how to make weed brownies.
