How to transform any cream-filled cookie into a cannabis-infused bat treat
The ghoulish season is here, and many of us are planning some weed-related activities and events for our Halloween parties, but good inspiration can be hard to find. Since weed cookies are a huge favorite among consumers, we thought we’d offer up an easy, no-bake cannabis dessert recipe. This one takes mere minutes to make and will keep you and your guests coming back for more.
If that sounds too good to be true, then you aren’t alone as many people assume that the process of learning how to make edibles must be a tricky road that takes prior knowledge, but you’d be surprised to find how many easy cannabis-infused dishes can compete with only one extra ingredient on hand, cannabutter.
This weed cookies recipe is intended for more experienced users, so if you are new to edibles, then you might want to either adjust the amount of cannabutter by adding an alternative like cream cheese to soften the icing mixture or split the serving in half to avoid any potentially uncomfortable or overwhelming effects.
Cannabis-infused Oreo bat cookies recipe
Oreos will always be the ideal option for this homemade treat, as the jet-black backing makes a fantastic bat body with few alterations, but you can replicate these steps using any cream-filled cookie to make bat-shaped weed cookies in a matter of minutes.
Makes: 30 weed cookies
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Calories: 110 per cookie
- 1 box of cream-filled cookies
- 2 tablespoons of cannabutter
- 2 pounds of chocolate bark (any flavor)
- 1 large tube of black icing
- 1 package of eyeball sprinkles
- Medium mixing bowls
- Potato masher
- Parchment paper
- Cookie sheets
- Sealable container
- Silicone spatula
Start by opening the fresh box of Oreo’s and remove all icing from the cookies into a mixing bowl.
Add the cannabutter to the bowl and use a spoon or potato masher to thoroughly cream together.
Line one or two baking sheets with parchment paper and place all the empty cookie shells individually in rows with enough room to hold them all. If you haven't already, this is also a stellar time to clear a space in the fridge for the weed cookies to set once they are pieced together.
Once the cookie sheets are prepared, take a silicone spatula and begin to spread the cannabutter icing mixture evenly onto the cookie bottoms, before closing them up with another empty cookie, and setting them into a clean bowl for later.
Take two evenly sized pieces of chocolate bark and set them approximately ½ inch away from each other on the parchment paper. Repeat until the pan is full, then get the bowl of Oreos ready.
Use icing to make a seam along the edges of the chocolate bark pieces, then fuse them together by placing an Oreo into the middle.
Now, decorate the outside with a face using icing to attach eyeballs or to design spooky or funny facial expressions.
Once you have filled a pan, place it into a fridge for 5 minutes to harden before gently removing each one and setting them into a resealable container for storage. These chocolate desserts can last for up to one week in the fridge but are always best when served fresh.
