In our last post we presented a delicious cannabutter recipe that was both practical, and easy to make in the comfort of your own home! Now that you’ve mastered making the budder, it’s time to make the most of it and make your own weed edibles!
We can’t possibly give all the best recipes, but we found one we absolutely loved and had to share – Peanut ‘Budder’ Cups!
This recipe is quick, easy, and can easily be made by anyone with access to a home kitchen. We highly recommend trying these out, but remember, these are infused with cannabis so don’t lose track of how many you’ve eaten once they’re done.
1 bag, chocolate chips
½ cup plus 3 tablespoons cannabutter
1 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound powdered sugar
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 pack of mini cup paper shells
1 baking sheet
1 parchment paper sheet cut to size
In a double boiler, or something similar, melt 3 tablespoons of cannabutter and the bag of chocolate over low heat, and stir frequently with a baking spatula until the mix is melted and smooth.
Do not allow the budder and chocolate mix to simmer! If this happens you’re using too much heat.
After the cannabutter is melted, remove it from heat and allow it to partially cool.
Once cooled, there are a few options on how you could coat the inside of the mini cup shells. One option is to fill the bottom of the cup about ⅓ of the way, another option is to use a small pastry brush to paint the inside of the shell is a layer of chocolate.
Allow coated/filled shells to cool aside.
Peanut Butter Mix:
In a medium mixing bowl, cream the peanut butter with an electric mixer set to medium speed. Too low, and the butter won’t cream properly. Too high, and it will simply lose its ability to hold together. If the peanut butter seems a bit too dry, add a teaspoon of peanut oil to help losen it up.
Once the butter is creamed to desired consistency, add vanilla extract along with partially crushed graham crackers.
Next, add some sugar to the desired sweetness. The recommended amount is ¼ cup but can be adjusted to taste, or left out altogether.
Putting it All Together
Finally, once the mix is ready and to your liking, portion it out into the cups as you’d like.
If needed, rewarm the remaining chocolate mix, then add it to the cups on top of the peanut butter.
Cool, and sprinkle with icing sugar if desired!
How to Enjoy
Like any other cannabis edibles, start low, go slow. If your cannabudder is strong, then maybe start with half of an individual cup. If you’re feeling brave, then maybe a full one will be a good place to start.
Generally, dosing edibles inside of your tolerance is always best practice, no matter how delicious the goodie might be.
We hope you enjoy these cups as much as we did!
Stay tuned for the next recipe!
