For the Cannabis-Infused Butter (CannaButter):
- 1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter
- 1/8 to 1/4 ounce of ground cannabis (adjust to your desired potency)
- Cheesecloth or a fine strainer
For the Oreo Filling:
- 1 package of regular Oreo cookies (about 36 cookies)
- 1/2 cup of regular unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
Step-1. Prepare the Cannabis-Infused Butter:
- Decarboxylate your ground cannabis by spreading it evenly on a baking sheet and baking it at 240°F (115°C) for 30-40 minutes. This activates the THC.
- In a saucepan over low heat, melt the two sticks of butter. Once melted, add the decarboxylated cannabis to the butter and simmer on low for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Make sure it doesn’t boil.
- After simmering, strain the mixture through cheesecloth or a fine strainer into a container. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Allow the CannaButter to cool and solidify in the refrigerator.
Step-2. Prepare the Oreo Filling:
- In a mixing bowl, combine the softened regular butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
- Mix until smooth and creamy.
Step-3. Assemble the Weed Oreos:
- Take the regular Oreo cookies and twist them apart. Scrape off the white filling and set it aside.
- Mix the Oreo cookie crumbs (the chocolate part) with 1/4 cup of the cooled Cannabis-Infused Butter until you have a thick, cookie dough-like consistency.
Step-4. Assemble the Weed Oreo Sandwiches:
- Roll the cannabis-infused Oreo mixture into small balls, about the size of a marble.
- Flatten each ball and place a small amount of the Oreo filling you set aside earlier in the center.
- Carefully wrap the Oreo mixture around the filling, forming it into a ball again.
- Gently press the filled Oreo ball between two regular Oreo cookie halves, creating a Weed Oreo sandwich.
- Repeat this process for the remaining cookies.
Step-5. Allow the Weed Oreos to Set:
- Place your assembled Weed Oreos in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
- This allows the filling to firm up and the flavors to meld together.
Step-6. Enjoy Responsibly:
- Start with a small portion to gauge the potency. The effects of edibles can take 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in.
- Store any remaining Weed Oreos in an airtight container in the refrigerator, clearly labeled and out of reach of children and pets.
Note: Remember that the potency of your Weed Oreos will depend on the strength of the cannabis used and the amount of CannaButter incorporated. Always consume edibles responsibly and be aware of your own tolerance.
These homemade Weed Oreos offer a tasty way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis in a delectable treat. Whether you’re making them for a special occasion or just as a fun experiment, remember to consume them responsibly and in moderation. Enjoy the combination of the classic Oreo taste with a subtle cannabis twist, and savor the delightful experience.
