Do you love desserts? Well, if you do, then this article is for you! We are going to talk about edibles. Edibles can be a lot of fun because they are delicious and they give us a sugar rush like no other dessert could ever do. But how many times have we eaten them when we weren’t expecting the sudden high that followed? In order to control our edibles intake, it’s important to know what ingredients go into their preparation. There are so many different recipes out there and each one has its own set of instructions on how best to prepare them.
- Ingredient: butter – Instructions: Measure out the amount of desired edibles you want to make. Cut up a stick of unsalted, natural cooking butter and place it in a small pot on low heat until all melted. Do not let it brown or burn! Add your chosen flavorings if desired, but be careful as some are stronger than others (cocoa powder is typically very strong). Slowly pour your cannabis-infused milk into the mixture one tablespoon at a time while stirring continuously so that they mix together well.
1. What are cannabis desserts?
- Cannabis desserts are edibles that contain cannabis, either in the form of concentrated oil from cannabis plants or a strong cheese sauce. They can be used to make cakes, brownies, and other recipes.
- You might wonder why someone would want to eat an edible instead of smoking it? Well, there are many reasons! Edible consumption delivers a more gentle experience than inhaling smoke does and also lets you have control over how much THC enters your system with each dose because it takes longer for cannabinoids to move through your digestive tract before they enter into your bloodstream (this is because when we consume edibles our bodies break down the fats needed for digestion first).
2. How to make cannabis-infused butter and oil
- To make cannabis butter or oil, first, decarboxylate your marijuana by heating it up in the oven for about 25 minutes at 250 degrees Fahrenheit. The THC is converted into its psychoactive form, but this process can also be done with a stovetop. Once heated to around 221 degrees F and maintained for 30 minutes you’ll have activated THC that will react differently when mixed together in recipes.
- Next grind your cannabis until it’s more of a powder than anything else (a coffee grinder does the trick) and mix the ground plant material with some high heat cooking fat like unsalted butter or vegetable shortening – one cup per four ounces of weed should do just fine!
- Then put the mixture in a saucepan and heat it up over the medium to high heat. Stirring is important, as are keeping an eye on your progress – don’t let the butter or oil get too hot!
- You’ll know when cannabis butter is ready for use after some time because you will see bubbles form at one end of it; usually about 20 minutes. It should be taken off of the stovetop before that happens (to prevent burning) and then cooled down, but not so much that it becomes solid again. If freezing your finished product is more convenient than refrigerating, go right ahead: just make sure to take out what you need every few days and keep track of how long ago you made this batch.
- To do this, grab a saucepan and put in the cannabis butter or coconut oil (or both!), sugar, heavy cream, salt, and vanilla extract. Heat it all up on medium to high heat while stirring until everything is melted together. You’ll know when your mixture is ready for use because bubbles will form at one end of the pan after some time; usually about 20 minutes. Take it off the stove before that happens so you don’t burn anything but let it cool down before using. If freezing your finished product is more convenient than refrigerating just make sure to take out what you need every few days and keep track of how long ago you made this batch!
3. Cannabis-infused dessert recipes
Easy recipe for cannabis-infused brownies
-cocoa powder -brown sugar -vegetable oil or melted butter for greasing pan (you can also use cooking spray)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take a large bowl and mix together your cocoa powder, brown sugar, vegetable oil/melted butter, and eggs until they are fully combined; you will have a chunky texture! Remove the battery from the bowl and place it into an ungreased baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean! Let cool completely before removing it from the cooling rack. Enjoy with friends as desired! What is better than enjoying chocolate on its own?
-flour -granulated sugar -baking powder -salt (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take a large bowl and mix together your flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt if desired until they are fully combined; you will have a chunky texture! Remove the battery from the bowl and place it into an ungreased baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean! Let cool completely before removing it from the cooling rack.
4. Tips for making the best tasting cannabis desserts
There are a few things you can do to make your cannabis desserts taste just as good if not better than non-cannabis edibles.
- use real butter rather than margarine or shortening, it will have the best flavor; also ensure that all ingredients are fresh and of top-notch quality!
- for sweeteners like brown sugar and white granulated sugar, add in some instant coffee granules into the mix – they’ll give an added depth of flavor without being overpowering (and caffeine is kind of necessary sometimes!)
- don’t skimp on salt when baking either – adding salt helps balance out other flavors while providing additional health benefits too! It’s worth noting however that salted items may take longer to cook, so bear this in mind when baking.
- if you’re looking for a healthier option for your favorite dessert recipes, then try substituting butter with applesauce or mashed banana!
Edible Desserts: Ingredients and Instructions
Making edibles may seem intimidating at first, but there are just a few things you can do to make your cannabis desserts taste just as good if not better than non-cannabis edibles. Use real butter rather than margarine or shortening; ensure that all ingredients are fresh and of top-notch quality!

Oven: 425 degrees Fahrenheit, bake for about 15-20 minutes.
Stovetop: medium heat on the stovetop, stir continuously with a spoon until thickened and browned; should take around 25-30 minutes total.
Microwave: low power microwave oven at 60% power in a large mug or bowl (not plastic), stirring every minute to avoid burning the cannabis extract; should be microwaving for 20-25 minutes total. Check after each five-minute interval!
Slow cooker/ Crockpot: 220 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for four hours on high setting, two hours if using crockpot setting of “low”.
