Cannabis Infused Buttercream Truffles Recipe

Time to Make: 2 hours

Servings: 48 chocolates

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup of cannabutter
  • 4 cups of icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 12 oz of dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • Caramel, white chocolate, or sprinkles to garnish

Tools required

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Electric hand mixer
  • Parchment paper
  • 2 cookie sheets
  • Toothpicks
  • Saran wrap
  • 1 small spoon

Instructions

Step 1 - Add vanilla, icing sugar, and cannabutter to a large bowl and mix with an electric hand mixer until well blended.

Step 2 - Now pour in milk and continue to mix for another 3 minutes.

Step 3 - Cover mixing bowl using plastic or saran wrap and place into a fridge for one hour.

Step 4 - Line both cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Step 5 - Remove buttercream from the refrigerator and uncover it.
Step 6 - Use a small spoon to scoop small approximately one-inch balls of the buttercream well-spaced apart across both cookie sheets.

Step 7 - Refrigerate buttercream balls for at least 30 minutes.

Step 8 - After 30 minutes the buttercream balls should be firm. Now you can shape each one into whatever shape you would like the chocolates by hand.

Step 9 - Cover both cookie sheets in new parchment paper.

Step 10 - Melt dark chocolate wafers using a microwave or slowly on the stove.

Step 11 - Once melted use a toothpick to pierce each ball and dip it into the melted chocolate.

Step 12 - Repeat if necessary, to completely cover each one.

Step 13 - Drop each ball onto the new parchment paper when finished.

Step 14 - Here is where things can get interesting. Chocolates can be garnished with more chocolate. Often, a melted bar of white chocolate is used to create a dramatic design or effect. You can also drizzle them with caramel, sprinkles, candy, or chocolate chips depending on your personal preference.

Step 15- Cool chocolates for another 30 minutes before boxing.

Looking for a unique way to box up your chocolate truffles before gifting them? You can use an old empty chocolate box wither the plastic lining removed using small cupcake papers as individual cups to keep them from sticking. If you don’t have a chocolate box any similarly shaped box that is clean and lined should be sufficient.

Dosing

These chocolates are meant to be consumed two at a time spaced out by at least two hours. Expect the effects of ingesting dark chocolate and weed to be enjoyable but intense and long-lasting with the potential to affect a user for up to six hours.
