How to make marijuana chocolates
Did you know that according to a study carried out by a famous brand of chocolates and sweets in general, 6 out of 10 households in Spain have bought chocolates in the last year? If you do not want to buy them, but you want to take them in a different and fun way, I invite you to prepare the recipe for marijuana chocolates that I will give you today.
“Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know which one you’ll get.” This is one of the most memorable quotes in the cinema industry and the beginning of the Oscar-winning film Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks, Robin Wright and Gary Sinise.
I just finished watching it and it gave me the idea for today’s article: making chocolates. But not just any of them; marijuana chocolates. Why? That way I combine two of my favorite facets: cooking and cannabis.
You want to do it yourself? Yeah? Then let’s go! But, first, let me tell you a little bit about the history of chocolates. It’s not that it’s particularly eye-catching, but it will help you look great in front of your friends, while you enjoy the cannabis chocolates.

🎯 A brief history of chocolates
To get to know it, we have to move to 18th century France, when the country was ruled by Louis XIV. In fact, it was he who, without even knowing it, would give his name to one of the most common and consumed products in the world: chocolates (then, they were not made of cannabis, no).
And how can this be? Very simple. His pastry chef gave him a taste of chocolate-covered fruit. When he finished eating them he said “Bon, bon” (which in French means “good, good, good”), but the cook and his court were left with that reaction and, from that moment on, everything that was covered with chocolate was called “bonbon”, the curious thing is that in France “bonbon” refers to sweets and the bonbons are called “des chocolats“.
However, it was not until the twentieth century, when they began to be sold on the U.S. market, that they began to become popular. It was also when artisans from countries as related to chocolate as Switzerland, Italy, Belgium or France began to make their own creations
Nowadays, there are chocolates with practically any kind of filling. Most of them are sweet, but there are also salty and even spicy ones, such as those of a well-known English brand. They even make marijuana chocolates, and you’re gonna be able to make them, too.
✅ Easy recipe for marijuana chocolates
The recipe is very similar to the truffle recipe I told you about at the time. You’re just going to need:
-120 ml of full-cream milk.
-50 gr. of cannabis butter.
-30 gr. of sugar.
-1 bar of dark chocolate to melt (or if you prefer, 100 grams of cocoa powder).
-In addition to these ingredients, don’t forget the mold to make the chocolates. You can give them the shape you like best; there are even marijuana leaves in the shape of a marijuana leaf, and the score can be total if you get your hands on one of these!
Ingredients for this cannabis chocolate recipe.
From here on, the steps to follow are as follows :
Step 1: Melt the chocolate (unless you have chosen cocoa powder). The best way to do this is in the Bain Marie; you know: place the chocolate in a fire-resistant container (such as a glass tray or a tupper of this material that you have at home and that can withstand the heat at high temperatures) and place it on a saucepan that you will have filled halfway with water. Heat it up and you’ll see how, little by little, the chocolate pills melt..
TIP : go around it so that it doesn’t stick and if you see that in spite of everything, it does, lower the fire..
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
Step 2: Add the melted chocolate in a new saucepan and gradually add the milk, so that it is gradually added.
Step 3: Then add the cannabis butter and sugar and do the same process. You should have a liquid mass left.
Add the cannabis butter and sugar
Step 4: Fill the mould with the amount of chocolate that enters. Be careful not to let it slip off the edges. And take it to the fridge, where it will take about 24 hours for it to take the form of a bonbon.
Mould and let cool
Here are the 4 basic steps. You see, they’re very simple. From there you can “complicate anything you want”. Some people, for example, like to fill their bonbons with pieces of candied fruit. Others who like to add some liquor, like Brandy, for example. And there are also people who like to add crushed nuts and dried fruit.
This last ingredient can be added to the melted chocolate, but also to the coating of the chocolates. And speaking of toppings, I, for example, like to sprinkle a little cocoa or icing sugar on them once they are done, that is, before serving them. Even macha tea! Which in this case and if you’ve made them with cannabis leaf molds, they’ll look great

In conclusion, making weed chocolates is really simple. You only need 4 basic ingredients (marijuana butter, milk, sugar and chocolate) and a minimum of 24 hours – you don’t even have to be a great cooker! ?? But be patient if you have to wait to eat them, but it will be worth it.
Before I finish, I would like you to remember that eating cannabis has nothing to do with smoking it; the effect can come between one and two hours later. So don’t be in a hurry to notice and, above all, don’t eat too much: it’s better. Remember, it’s better to have a good trip and enjoy it than to have a bad stay with friends or family. Of course, don’t forget to tell people they’re marijuana chocolates.

Super Easy Cannabis Chocolate Recipe
People have busy lives and can’t always spend hours making edibles in the kitchen. Save time using this super easy cannabis chocolate recipe.
How to Make Cannabis Chocolate the Easy Way
Both chocolate and cannabis release feel-good chemicals in your brain. Also, chocolate makes cannabis more palatable by smoothing out the flavor. So, why do people love it so much? Once you try it, you will know.
The ingredient list for this recipe is short. You will need chocolate and cannabis. You can use finely ground decarboxylated cannabis or activated cannabis tincture. Use chocolate chips or baking chocolate of your choice.
Decarboxylate Cannabis For Making Chocolate
In order to decarboxylate cannabis, break dry cannabis into small pieces, spread out evenly on a baking tray and put into a 240°F preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Place decarbed cannabis into a coffee/spice grinder or use mortar/pestle and grind to a fine powder.
Heat baking chocolate or chocolate chips in a bowl placed on top of a pot of hot water. The bowl must have a larger diameter than the pot to prevent water from contaminating the chocolate. Do not cover the bowl when heating chocolate.
Once the chocolate melts and has a runny consistency, add the ground decarbed cannabis or activated tincture. Mix very well. Continue to heat gently until you have a smooth pourable consistency.
Pour into chocolate molds being careful not to get any water in the chocolate. Let chocolates cool at room temperature.
Store chocolate in a cool, dry place 65 to 68°F with humidity under 55%. The chocolate will remain stable for months.
Essential Chocolate Making Tips
You can add lecithin granules to chocolate to improve the viscosity of your chocolate.
Moisture and chocolate do not mix. Never add water, honey, syrup or vanilla extract when making chocolate. The chocolate will seize, thus it will not flow into molds.People have busy lives and can’t always spend hours making edibles in the kitchen.
