Selecting Your Weed

Let your dispensary representative know that you will be creating cannabutter with your marijuana buds.

They can help you choose a strain that works well with cannabis cooking and help you determine what to choose based on your preferences, likes and dislikes for a desired high.

Decide between a THC strain for elevating properties or a CBD bud that will not get you high. Both have great benefits and it’s entirely up to you.

  • Melt the chocolate in a clean, dry bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. If you want to temper the chocolate (see above.) Add your cannabis butter.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, (and tempered, if tempering the chocolate), remove the bowl from the pan and wipe the moisture off the bottom of the bowl.
  • Pour or spoon a layer of chocolate into your molds. Rap them on the counter a few times to distribute the chocolate evenly and release any air bubbles, then working quickly, top with any kinds of nuts, dried fruits, or other ingredients that you wish and press them in slightly.
  • (You can also stir ingredients into the chocolate, such as toasted nuts, seeds, crisped rice cereal, snipped marshmallows, or other ingredients, then pour the mixture into the molds.)
  • Immediately put the bars in the refrigerator until firm. If tempered chocolate is used, it shouldn’t take more than five minutes for them to firm up. Otherwise the chocolate will take longer.
  • Serve the Chocolate Cannabis Bar

    thanks! at first I thought you were joking around so I googled and there really is such a product. going to buy one thanks so much!!!!!

  2. Can I add more butter or less chocolate to make the candy more potent? Or would it ruin the texture?

  3. Does it matter what type of chocolate i use? Like can i use milk chocolate or would it be better to use dark

    1. Use any chocolate you want

  4. It says the bar serves 8, but how big are the servings? Can you get multiple bars from this amount?

  5. James A Jackson Jr says:

    Thank you so much for this recipe. How do I temper 8 cups of chocolate?

    1. By doubling the recipe

    2. Can this be done with almond bark? I’m trying to make buckeyes that will get you where you want to go with one or two

      1. Yes to almond bark
        Cinnamon, crushed Oreo and coffee are also good addition to the almond bark

      2. You can use anything that melts to incorporate butter. you may need lechtin (or similar emmulsifier) if the fat content on your chosen food is low

      3. Jennifer R Ray says:

        Wanting to know myself! Still no response, .i’m gonna assume so….

    3. Increase the recipe by two, so put half a cup of canna butter and 8 cups of chocolate.

      1. I have been making butter and chocolates for years now. You don’t have to temper your canabutter. Slow-cooked 5 lbs of stick butter on warm and what ever plant you have for about 8 hours. Don’t want to do any longer then that because they you start to cook out the potency. I have a friend who grows and I use all the trim (stems, branch, seeds and leaf) along with what ever shake it left from trimming. My butter is outstanding and packs quite a punch. Now the recipe for the chocolates are pretty spot on for the measerments, how ever instead of using bark, I buy chocolate chips. Why? Because they come in so many different flavors. Works just the same and the results are amazing. Just a little FYI. When baking or cooking anything that requires oil, you can literally melt that butter and substitute it in the oils place. Makes for great food all the time.

  6. Brooke Graham says:

    If u don’t want to spend a couple hundred on majic butter machine u can easily cook your cannabutter in your slow cooker/crockpot but make sure it is set only on warm not high or low just warm! U can use it from anywhere from 4-6 hours or 12-24 hours! Cool before straining through a cheesecloth and strainer for the just in cases! Then follow rest of the chock recipe and all will be sweet! Pardon the pun lol

  7. How do you decarb weed into the butter

    1. Decarb 240° for 45 minutes. Oz of weed to 1 Lb butter. Simmer 3-4 hrs.

    2. Blues Ben says:

      120 deg for 40 mins. THC burns off at 187degC so you’ll need it lower than that

    3. you decarb the weed Before it is placed into the butter.

    4. robert connolly says:

      200 degrees 15min.

    5. 225 degrees for 40 min. U can put it in an oven bag if u want to contain the smell a little bit

      1. You can use a Manson jar it works great

  8. Eric Terrence Fletcher says:

    Can i use a concentrate instead of flower? If so a gram of decarbed wax should do correct ?

    1. Charlotte Huey says:

      Yes this will work! Done it

  9. Will the chocolate work as well with cannabis oil and other quantity amount the same meaning a cup.

    1. While it is possible, it is not recommended. As your chocolate won’t harden as well. You could use less oil than if you would use butter. Keep it to 2 tbsp of oil.

  10. CannabinoidJack says:

    Will the chocolate melt faster due to the butter?

    1. Not noticeable. The butter is only a 16th part of the batch. The chocolate hardens perfectly and is not soft. Just make sure to not keep it at warm temperatures. If you live in a warm climate, try to keep it at a cool dark place.

  11. What brand of chocolate did you use and can you use more than a 1/4 cup of butta to 4 cups of chocolate

    1. You can use more or less than a cup depending how high or low you want the dosage. Infusion is just adding one ingredient to another. The only thing you may need to do additionally is add an emulsification agent like lechtin. You can add too much cannabutter (or pick infusion of choice.) think of a glass of water. You can put salt into it until it dissolves. at a certain point the salt will stop dissolving and settle at the bottom. Add more water and the salt dissolves. Hope that helps.

  12. Fabulous. Just fabulous.

  13. Heya i’m foг the primɑry time here. I came across this board аnd I
    to find It reɑlly useful & it helpеd me out mսcһ. I am hoⲣing to gіve
    something аgain and aid others such as you aided me.

  14. Don’t buy cannabutter. Make it yourself. Slow cook an ounce of shake with a pound of butter and a cup of water on low for up for 8-16 hours. The longer you cook it the more potent it will be. Use crock pot or slow cooker. Strain with cheese cloth into container and put in fridge. Your cannabutter will solidify and the water will drop to the bottom of the container. Use a knife to take a chunk out and drain the water. You’re now ready to use your butter for any edibles you wish to make!

    1. The longer you cook it the more CBN you release aka SLEEP

      If you want a heady high 3 hours is More than enough time

    2. That’s my recipe as well. Do you decarb the flower before adding to the crock pot?

  15. Debra, it is easy to make yourself and a much better value

  16. Where can you get the butter from to make brownies ect?

    1. 5 stars
      Sounds like a fantastic recipe I will try thank you for the help have a great day stay safe

  17. Miranda Garcia says:

    will this recipe have the chocolate temper with using the butter?

  18. If I only want to use 1 cup of chocolate to make small chocolate candys what ratio of cannabutter should I use? 1tbs?

    1. Where can i get cannabus butter?

      1. Tammy Galotti says:

        You have to make it.

      2. Less Vegtaible says:

        ^ at the bus stop

      3. Cathelena Hinson says:

        Debra, you really should infuse your own butter. You’ll have better control and flexibility with your cooking/baking.

      4. You make it with the magical butter machine, it’s awesome!

  19. Can I use this to drizzle onto cookies?

    1. Rob Lamnd says:

      Ofcourse, just use a teaspoon while the chocolate is still melted and drizzle over all of your favorite deserts! I enjoy fresh fruit.
