Pot Brownies Recipe
- 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons of shortening
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1 tablespoon of water
- 1/2 cup of ground cannabis
- A pinch of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons of corn syrup
- 1 square of melted chocolate
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of chopped nuts
- Preheat and Prepare: Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
- Sift the Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Set this dry mixture aside for now.
- Mix the Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, combine the shortening, honey, corn syrup, beaten egg, melted chocolate, vanilla extract, and ground cannabis (your secret ingredient). Mix these together until well combined.
- Blend it All Together: Gradually add the dry ingredients mixture to the wet mixture and stir until everything is thoroughly combined. Your brownie batter should be smooth and well-mixed.
- Add the Nuts: Gently fold in the chopped nuts. This step is optional, but it adds a delightful crunch and extra flavor to your brownies.
- Baking Time: Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan, spreading it out evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when a toothpick or knife inserted into the center comes out mostly clean with a few moist crumbs.
- Cool and Enjoy: Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for a bit before cutting them into squares. This will help them set properly. Once they’ve cooled, serve them up, and get ready for a delightful, tingly happy feeling!
Additional Tips and Notes:
- Dosage Control: It’s crucial to be mindful of the potency of your brownies. The amount of ground cannabis you use will directly impact the strength of your edibles. If you’re new to cannabis-infused cooking, start with a smaller amount and gradually increase it in future batches as you become more comfortable with the effects.
- Decarboxylation: To activate the THC in cannabis, you’ll need to decarboxylate it before using it in your recipe. To do this, spread your ground cannabis on a baking sheet and bake it at 240°F (115°C) for about 30-40 minutes. This step is essential for maximizing the potency of your brownies.
- Quality Matters: The quality of your cannabis will significantly affect the flavor and potency of your brownies. Opt for high-quality cannabis strains that you enjoy to ensure a pleasant experience.
- Butter or Oil Infusion: Some prefer using cannabis-infused butter or oil instead of directly adding ground cannabis. To make infused butter or oil, gently heat your cannabis with butter or oil over low heat for a few hours, then strain it to remove the plant material. This infused base can be used in various recipes, including brownies, for a smoother and more consistent infusion.
- Storage and Labeling: If you have leftovers (which is not always guaranteed with these delicious treats), store them in an airtight container. Be sure to label them clearly to avoid any accidental consumption.
- Respect Local Laws: Be aware of the legal regulations surrounding the use and possession of cannabis in your area. Always follow the laws and consume responsibly.
- Patience is Key: The effects of cannabis-infused edibles can take longer to kick in compared to smoking or vaping. It’s essential to be patient and wait at least an hour before considering consuming more. Overindulgence can lead to an uncomfortable experience.
- Educate Yourself: Continue to learn and explore the world of cannabis-infused cooking. There are many resources, cookbooks, and online communities dedicated to this craft. Educating yourself will help you become a master cannabis chef.
