How To Host A Cannabis Cookie Decorating Party


How To Host A Cannabis Cookie Decorating Party

It’s the season of cookies, and today we’re going to show you How To Host A Cannabis Cookie Decorating Party.

With so many yummy weed edible cookie possibilities, why not create a new tradition that can be remembered for years to come, or at least the evening?

Check out our best edible cookie recipes and our how-to guide below.

Prep The Homemade Cookies & Icing

  1. Baked & Cooled Cookies: Start the day with already baked and cooled cookies like sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies and anything else fun and easy to decorate. You don’t want to have any fresh-from-the-oven recipes because the best cookies to decorate are the ones that have 100% cooled down – otherwise, the icing will melt and your design will look nuts!
  2. Portion Cookies: I suggest portioning about 6-8 cookies per person to decorate. That way there’s enough to do, enough to sample, and enough just in case one or two breaks (which may happen, so always always always have extras)
  3. Icing: Make sure you have enough icing ready and prepared – and doubles or maybe even triples depending on how many people are attending.
  4. Food Colouring: Tinting the icing is super fun, and you might want to consider having many colours.

For Decorating

  • Sprinkles, finely chopped candies and nuts: grab some fun, festive and colourful sprinkles!
  • Piping Bags & Tips: Grab a batch of disposable piping bags and tips and give everyone a few.
  • Toothpicks: great for creating intricate designs in icing!
  • Treat Boxes: find some great little treat boxes that everyone can put their freshly decorated cookies in afterward.

Now on to the recipes!

Weed-Infused Sugar Cookies

Cannabis infused sugar cookies
We love cannabis infused anything. But weed infused cookies are one of the most popular types of weed edibles for a reason. They are delicious, discreet, fun to make and they almost always impress your friends.
If you want these weed infused sugar cookies to have a bit more of a finishing touch, you could also decorate the cookies with icing.
If you are out of cannabis butter, you could also use cannabis sugar for this recipe.
