There are 3 secrets to my brownie recipe. The first is that I do not use any baking powder or baking soda. If you are at sea level then you may want to add 1/4 teaspoon baking powder but try it without first. The use of baking powder or baking soda in brownies will cause the brownies to rise to high in the oven and then collapse in the middle. This ends up making the sides of the brownie hard and crunchy.
The second secret to extra strong pot brownies is that I substitute marijuana for flour. Take the marijuana that you are going to use in the brownies and put it in a blender for a few minutes until it is the consistency of flour. You want to make sure that the marijuana is crunchy dry before you do this or it will be hard to get a real fine “flour like” consistency. If you can sift it with a fine mesh screen, that’s even better. Do not use stalks or stems.
The final secret is to triple soak the pot before you use it. This makes a huge difference in the taste. If you don’t do this step your pot brownies will taste more like pot than yummy chocolate. Take a pan full of cold water and let the marijuana soak in it for 3 hours. Strain the water out and add new clean water and soak it again for 3 hours.
Strain the water out again and add fresh clean water one more time. If you are using the pot for making flour then after you strain the water the final time place the pot on a screen to dry for a couple days making sure it is crunchy dry before you put it in the blender to grind into flour consistency. If you’re using the marijuana to make cannabutter then after you strain the water out the final time, add 2 cups of fresh water and 1 cup of butter (use real butter) for every ounce of pot.
Bring this to a low simmer on the stove for 4 hours. Strain the water through cheese cloth or a fine wire mesh strainer into a bowl or tupperware container and put the container full of water into the refridgerator for about 5 hours. The butter will seperate from the water and rise to the top of the container and harden and you will be able to scoop the butter out and dispose of the water.
If you don’t want your brownies to taste like pot, the best thing to do is to take a regular brownie recipe and add bubble hash or kief to it. I will post a recipe for this soon.
Here’s a tip before you get started, if you want to use cannabutter (marijuana infused butter) instead of regular butter you can but it’s not at all needed. If you use cannabutter in addition to using marijuana for flour, they will be insanely strong but you won’t be able to eat more than a few bites.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup marijuana (ground to flour consistency)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/16 teaspoon peppermint oil (optional)
Thoroughly blend the butter, sugar, vanilla, eggs and peppermint oil. In a seperate bowl blend the marijuana, cocoa powder and salt. Now combine everything and blend very thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a very well greased 9″ x 12″ pan. A similar sized pan or a couple of bread pans will work fine. Place it on the middle rack in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes at 300 degrees. To test the marijuana brownies to make sure they are done, stick a clean, dry butter knife into the brownie. If the knife comes out clean, they are ready. If the knife comes out with gooey brownie on it, then leave the brownies in the oven for a few more minutes.
Once they are ready, take a knife and work it along the sides of the pan to loosen up the brownies from the pan. Place a sheet of saran wrap or aluminum foil on the counter and turn the brownie pan upside down on it so the brownies fall out. You may need to slam the pan down to get them to fall. Before the brownies cool, wrap them in saran wrap or put them in a tupperware container. The idea being that you want the brownies to stay moist and if you seal them up before they are cool the moisture will stay in the brownie instead of evaporating into the air as they cool.
That’s it, you’re done. Please remember to only eat a little, especially your first time with this recipe. You will be sorry if you eat to much!
