Ingredients for the crust

• 1 ½ cups of chocolate graham crackers
• ⅔ cup of cannabutter
• ¼ teaspoon of salt

Ingredients for Dark chocolate ganache

• 1 cup of heavy cream
• 1 cup (8oz) of bittersweet baking chocolate
• 2 tablespoons of whiskey
• ¼ teaspoon of salt

Ingredients for marshmallow topping

• ½ cup of icing sugar
• 1 milk chocolate bar
• 4 egg whites
• ¼ teaspoon of salt
• 1 teaspoon of vanilla
• cream of tartar (enough to thicken the mixture)

Tools

• 1 food processor
• 2 medium bowls
• 1 mixing tool
• 1 pie dish
• 1 knife
• 1 small pot
• 1 large saucepan
• 1 small saucepan
• 1 whisk
• 1 electric mixer

Instructions

  1. Add the graham crackers to a processor to crumble, then pour into a bowl.
  2. Put the remaining graham cracker crust ingredients into a bowl and combine until the mixture reaches a smooth and moldable consistency.
  3. Scoop the crust batter into a pie pan and press it into shape.
  4. Refrigerate the crust, while you prepare the next layer.
  5. Use a knife to mince the bittersweet chocolate. The smaller the pieces are, the smoother the results will be.
  6. Add the chocolate to a small pot and place it into a water-filled saucepan to create a double boiler system.
  7. Set the burner to low heat and stir the mixture frequently to avoid scalding.
  8. While the chocolate is heating, in a separate small pot, start heating up the cream by setting the burner to medium heat and allowing it to warm to the point of almost boiling over.
  9. Slowly pour the heavy cream over top of the chocolate mixture and allow to stand for 5 minutes to set.
  10. Once 5 minutes have passed, take a whisk and stir the ingredients by making slow circles until the cream is fully incorporated.
  11. Add two tablespoons of whiskey and combine them in the same way that you did with the cream. Slow, steady motions and if the mixture begins to dry out and crack, then add a small amount of cream to remedy the situation.
  12. Pour the freshly made infused ganache into the chilled chocolate pie shell.
  13. Spread the chocolate mixture evenly across the shell then place back into the fridge.
  14. Melt the chocolate and cannabutter for the mousse using a microwave in 30-second intervals, or a double broiler system like you did before.
  15. Add all the mousse layer ingredients to a bowl and beat them together on high using an electric mixer until it reaches a light and fluffy texture.
  16. Scoop the mixture onto the ganache layer then return the pie to the fridge once again.
  17. Put the egg whites into a bowl and beat them until they triple in size and the mixture begins to form stiff peaks.
  18. Pour in the vanilla extract and gently incorporate into the mix using a whisk.
  19. Spoon the final marshmallow layer onto the pie and toast it using a torch or oven broiler.
  20. Serve and enjoy while these cannabis edibles are fresh and warm for the best results.
