The following guide will give you 6 easy edible recipes to make the best edibles right at home. Read on to learn how you can cook at the highest level.
1. Cannabis Butter and Oil For Edible Recipes
This first recipe is for two common ingredients used in more complex recipes. Making cannabis butter and oil opens up endless possibilities for cooking with THC.
Melt 1 cup of butter in a pan and simmer. Add cannabis and stir for 45 minutes until the color is dark green. Pour the mix into a cheesecloth-covered jar to strain. Chill overnight and then pour out the remaining liquid.
For the oil, you will mix ground weed with any cooking oil you’d like. Heat in a boiler, slow cooker, or saucepan on low or warm for a few hours. Next, strain through a cheesecloth just like the butter. The oil will last for several months.
Dispensaries like N Bliss also sell similar cannabis additives for cooking if you’re short on time.
2. Rice Krispy Treats
Melt 3 tablespoons of cannabis butter on low heat. Stir 4 cups of mini marshmallows and stir until everything is melted.
Remove the mix from heat and stir in 6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal until everything is well coated.
Press the completed mix into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated thoroughly with cooking spray. Cut into 2-inch squares and enjoy!
3. Choclate Chip Cookies
Combine 2 1/4 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 1 teaspoon salt in a small bowl.
Beat 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of cannabis butter, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add 2 eggs one at a time and beat well after adding each of the eggs.
Gradually stir in flour mixture and 2 cups of chocolate chips. Scoop teaspoon-sized batter balls onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes.
4. Cannabis Gummies
Add 1/2 cup of cold water, 1/2 cup of cannabis oil, and 1 teaspoon of soy lecithin to a pot and set on low heat. Stir until melted and add 85 grams of flavored gelatin and 2 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin.
Fill up any gummy molds of your choice and freeze for 20 to 25 minutes.
5. Marijuana Omelette
Melt 1/2 cup of cannabis butter in a pan on medium heat. Pour in 2 well-beaten eggs.
Cook until the eggs are solid enough on the bottom to flip. Add any fillings of your choice and then flip. Wait until all ingredients are cooked to your liking and enjoy.
6. Weed Grilled Cheese
Butter 2 slices of bread. Use 2 teaspoons of regular butter on one side and 2 teaspoons of cannabis butter on the other.
Place your choice of cheese slices in between the cannabis butter sides of your bread. Fry on medium heat in a pan until the cheese melts and the bread is golden brown.
