Cannabis-baked fudge brownies are a popular edible treat that combines the rich and decadent flavors of traditional fudge brownies with the added benefits of cannabis. These brownies are infused with cannabis, typically in the form of cannabutter or cannabis oil, which adds a psychoactive component to the recipe.
To make cannabis-baked fudge brownies, you will need a few key ingredients: cannabis-infused butter or oil, cocoa powder, sugar, flour, eggs, vanilla extract, and salt. The process of making these brownies is similar to making regular fudge brownies, with the addition of the cannabis-infused ingredient.
To begin, preheat your oven to the recommended temperature specified in your chosen recipe. While the oven is preheating, you can prepare your cannabis-infused butter or oil. This can be done by gently heating your chosen fat (butter or oil) on low heat and adding ground cannabis to it. Allow the mixture to simmer for a couple of hours, stirring occasionally. This process helps to activate the cannabinoids in the cannabis and infuse them into the fat.
Once your cannabis-infused butter or oil is ready, strain it through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to remove any plant material. You can then proceed with the rest of the brownie recipe.
In a mixing bowl, combine the cocoa powder, sugar, flour, and salt. Mix these dry ingredients together until they are well combined. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and vanilla extract together until they are well mixed.
Next, add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir until everything is fully incorporated. At this point, you can add your cannabis-infused butter or oil to the batter. Make sure to mix it in thoroughly so that it is evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Grease a baking pan with non-stick cooking spray or line it with parchment paper. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly.
Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake according to the recipe’s instructions. The baking time may vary depending on the recipe and oven, but it typically takes around 20-30 minutes for the brownies to bake. To check if they are done, insert a toothpick into the center of the brownies. If it comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it, they are ready.
Once baked, remove the pan from the oven and allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting them into squares. This will help them set and firm up.
It is important to note that consuming cannabis-infused edibles can have different effects compared to smoking or vaping cannabis. The onset of effects may be slower, but they can also last longer and be more potent. It is recommended to start with a small portion and wait for at least an hour before consuming more, as the effects can take some time to fully kick in.
In conclusion, cannabis-baked fudge brownies are a delicious way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis in an edible form. By infusing cannabis into butter or oil and incorporating it into a traditional fudge brownie recipe, you can create a tasty treat that provides both flavor and psychoactive effects.
