Delicious, melt-in-your-mouth cannabis-infused chocolates that are ready in just 30 minutes? Look no further than this guide for making quick and easy cannabis chocolates; three ways, using melting chocolates like chips and wafers with your choice of infusion methods including butter and oil, decarbed kief or flower, or cannabis concentrates like FECO.
Fill the bottom portion of the double boiler with 1 cup of water. Place on the stove and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
Once simmering, carefully place the top double boiler insert over the bottom pan and add the chocolate chips or wafers.
Steam from the bottom pan will heat the chocolate in the top pan, allowing the chocolate to melt slowly. Stir occasionally until the chocolate is mostly melted, about 5 minutes.
If following method one - stir in your butter or oil; if following method two - stir in your decarbed kief or ground flower; if following method three - stir in your cannabis concentrates. Stir the chocolate mixture until all ingredients are well combined.
Once everything is melted and combined, turn off the heat, remove the double boiler's top portion, and set it aside.
If you plan on pouring the chocolate into molds, use a spoon or other similar tool to get the hot chocolate into your desired mold cavities.
Gently tap the molds against the counter or other flat surfaces to release any remaining air bubbles.
Place the chocolate-filled molds in the refrigerator or freezer for 15 minutes to set.
After 20 minutes, pop the chocolates out of the molds and place them in a ziplock bag or other air-tight storage container.
If you used method one, store your chocolates in the refrigerator or freezer. If you used method two or three, you could store it at room temperature for up to 1 week. If you don't plan on using them within a week, store them in the refrigerator or freezer.
Melting In The Microwave: This is OK - BUT - do not microwave the chocolate if your infusion option is in it - it could destroy your THC and other cannabinoids. Instead, melt the chocolate in the microwave and THEN stir in your infusion option of choice.
Using Other Concentrates: If you are using cannabis concentrates instead of FECO/RSO, check this guide first to see if the concentrate needs to be decarbed.
