Edibles are fun for lots of us! But they can end up getting pretty pricey, no matter where you buy them from. So, consider making your own at home! You’d be surprised with how easy it is to make your own *special* dessert recipes at home. So get infusing then get baking… eh, see what I did there? Though seriously, the recipes listed in this article are actually delicious, not icky like some made without that extra bit of love. Oh yeah, and we all know you can make *special* brownies, so we’re not covering that… I’ve included edibles recipes you might not have considered to turn toasty before!
How to infuse your oil or butter
You can’t really start baking your own cannabis infused desserts without some sort of cannabis infused ingredient. The most effective way to get your desserts feelin’ special, is to infuse the oil or butter you include in the recipe. There are lots of DIY ways to infuse your own oil or butter, but by far the easiest is using an infuser. Yep, they make it that easy now. Infusers are on the market and easier to buy than ever. Here are some popular products for making *special* infused desserts:
First up is our cream of the crop option. The Levo infuser markets for $299.99 and is one of the fancier infusers out there. This option is popular for a lot of culinary and cannabis influencers and for good reason. Not only does the Levo infuser secrete minimal smell for subtle infusing, it also is simple-to-use, mess free, and operates on easy-to-understand button controls.
A cheaper, yet still effective option is the Herbal Chef Infuser. This infuser sells for $84.97. While this infuser has fewer control options than the Levo, it does have temperature controls and is a great option for someone who isn’t infusing on the regular. It’s not as user-friendly as the Levo but it sure does the trick.
Rainbow Pebble Bars
If you know how to make normal rice krispy treats, you know how to make these *special* sweets. The only difference is in the ingredients. Instead of normal rice krispies, you’ll want to use rainbow pebble cereal. This has a stronger flavor and does a better job at masking the cannabis flavor. And then obviously, instead of normal butter you’ll want to use infused cannabutter. This dessert recipe is easy and quick and bonus points: it doesn’t require any baking.
Looking to improve your wake and bake game? Include your cannabis into your breakfast (or snack) with these delicious *special* cinnamon rolls. This is a great option for a quick bake that’ll get you quickly baked. Since the infused butter is in the cinnamon coating, a lot of the flavor isn’t potent within the bread of the cinnamon rolls, making this a delicious infused treat to enjoy.
Peanut Butter Cookies
Speaking of masking the weed flavor in your infused treats, peanut butter does a good job distracting from any dankness. Though, if you’re a peanut butter lover like me, be careful! These cookies are wicked addictive, and you won’t want to eat too many, and that’s not because it would have wasted your 20 minutes of prep time… Just remember that they are *special* cookies.
Have you ever had caramel chew edibles? Yeah, they’re just not it. They’re ooey gooey and get stuck in your teeth and to me, taste nothing like caramel and everything like you’re eating a ball of wax. It’s not the vibe… You know what the vibe is though? These *special* caramel apples. Great for sweet tooths, the apple makes up for the bulk of this dessert. What’s infused is just the caramel coating. This makes it taste WAY better than a chunk of dank caramel. It also makes it way easier to eat, with less sticky caramel to deal with.
To me, banana bread is like the ultimate comfort food, and the fact that this one has both chocolate chips AND that good good in it… Psh, no contest. Enjoy making Canabana bread the same way you make normal banana bread but with your infused butter/ oil. Yep, it’s that simple. This warm and cozy treat will have you feeling good, I guarantee that.
