  1. If using a double broiler, then prepare the water and set the burner to medium heat, allowing enough time for the chocolate chips to melt down. If using a microwave, you can add the chocolate chips to a bowl, and microwave them in 30 second intervals until entirely melted.
  2. Once the chocolate chips have melted, you can add in the cannaoil (cannabis infused coconut oil) and stir the ingredients together until smooth.
  3. Once the coconut oil has dissolved, and the chocolate has reached a velvety texture, it’s ready to use. Take a tablespoon to measure out a well portioned dose and pour it over an ice cream cone. Try to work quickly, as this marijuana edible chocolate will harden in under 30 seconds once it has touched the ice-cold treat.
