Cannabis Chocolate Recipe

A simple recipe for making cannabis-infused chocolate.


  • 7 grams (¼ ounce) good cannabis
  • 170 grams (6 ounces)  dark chocolate
  • 28 grams (1 ounce) chopped or whole nuts


Finely break the cannabis down, making sure it is ready when the chocolate comes to a melt.  Break the chocolate into chunks and place it inside a microwaveable glass bowl.  Place in the microwave and heat on high for thirty seconds before stirring in the ground cannabis.  Now place the chocolate back into the microwave and heat on medium for an additional thirty seconds.  If necessary, continue heating the chocolate in short increments  until it is well melted.

Once adequately melted, stir in the nuts (dried fruit and M&M’s are other suggestions)  and then use your favorite chocolate mold to shape your THC treats. Enjoy!

    FYI, you should NEVER microwave chocolate… will always get a burnt taste. Plus if you also microwave your cannabis butter, it will loose some of it’s THC level.. just thought you should know 🙂

      You can microwave chocolate without getting a burnt taste by microwaving on a lower power setting in 30 second increments, stirring, and repeating as necessary. The THC leaving thing is likely accurate enough tho. Apparently the boiling point of THC is 200 degrees celsius.

      I agree!

    STOP ADDING RAW PLANT MATERIAL IN YOUR RECIPES THAT MAKES PEOPLE SICK. You’re always supposed to extract the THC in to butter or cooking oil FIRST and add the dosed oil to your recipes. YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO INGEST RAW PLANT MATTER.

    Get your facts straight.

      Ronald Thats Total BS
      I eaten Raw Marijuana for years you get the same high as if you went the extraction processes

      Your Stomach will break it down just fine.
      actually Raw pot gets into your system faster than if its mixed with abunch of other ingredients
      if you get sick from raw marijuana your getting sick from chemicals sprayed on the plants NOT the Marijuana
      people have been eating marijuana for 1000s of years

        It’s not BS at all, sadly. I threw up on an airplane after hours of unpleasantness and having weed scented farts. It sounds funny but it wasn’t fun

        I realized every time I eat it raw or lightly processed I get a rash and reaction. Real dispensary stuff doesn’t do this. I’m not a gluten sensitive pansy or into a specialized diet. I eat everything but this messes me up bigtime.

        He’s right. The whole plant is editable and has very differnt cannabinoids ratios. I like how he comes in hot like he knows everything but he just herd something from someone!!

        Amen Bud Eater,

        Eating raw cannabis is one of the most nutritious plants on earth. Hemp seeds has one of the highest levels of Omega’s 3 and 6 on earth.

        You are able to juice cannabis and when it is not heated but any means you will not get high in theory. This recipe does not call for raw cannabis but for ground bud and dried leaves. This is just like herbs from your garden, you can use it directly in the food you make or you can dry it. Just remember as a rule of thumb that when it is dried you need to add more to the dish to get the same flavor of the fresh.

      Know your facts and chemical compounds(= Consumed “raw”, marijuana is metabolized in the liver. If the marijuana is heated to, around, 170 degrees for, around, 20 minutes, it is metabolized even more efficiently and the end result is, usually, more pronounced……………hence, edibles causing a different, and more pronounce effect. Without science and chemistry knowledge of the “facts”, you have “opinion” and we all know what opinions are like.

      Because people can’t eat lettuce, basil, mint…

      We eat raw plant matter all the time you bloody numpty.

      Stop yelling with your caps at people. If cooking frustrates you , May I suggest you smoke a fatty before you attempt cooking.

    One thing this recipe doesn’t mention is decarboxylating the marijuana before mixing it with the chocolate. I decarb my weed at 240 degrees for one hour.

    I cannot eat raw cannabis due to the fiber content. I have a microscopic colitis condition. I think some people have other adversities and allergies to cannabis. So that could be Paul’s problem. I can drink cannabis juice, but raw fresh cannabis really causes me problems. Dried, decarboxylated cannabis in small doses, i.e. 1/4 tsp, is not a problem.

    I made chocolates with this recipe, melting the Hershey’s dark chocolate in the microwave – on HIGH – for 30 seconds at a time. I watched it carefully and stirred frequently. I dropped the chocolate onto parchment paper and it made chocolate wafers. They are yummy! I knew how many servings I was going to make and so I put that amount of servings of decarbed weed into the chocolate. I like this method for the accuracy of dosing measurement even though you have to have actual bud in the chocolate.

      How do you decarb your weed. I know there are different ways. How do you do it?

    It always amazes me that these websites position themselves as being experts, yet you see the most amateur shit all over the place. Forums actually often have more accurate info. I must say this recipe is sad for multiple reasons. A) you gotta decarb the weed, don’t be dumb guys THCA does not get you high and since you don’t smoke your edibles it makes sense to add heat and decarboxulate your weed to turn the THCA into THC which is probably what you want. Also do an oil extraction first, because otherwise you are basically wasting your bud. Not to mention a much better taste. B) sticking raw weed in the microwave is generally not smart. Microwaves are much more efficient at agitating the THC particles and likely destroying them then providing a heat catalyst for either THCA into THC and/or the binding of cannabinoids to fats(as to make them more readily available to be processed by your body) and is thus missing the two most crucial factors in making edibles. I could maybe see this if you live in a door room or prision, but this has got to be the worst edible recipe I’ve encountered

      I put my weed in a coffee grinder straight outa the sac grind it to a fine powder then add it to the chocolate well its still in the dbl boiler for melting the chocolate then add a pad of unsalted butter and the pecans the butters to make the chocolate a bit softer but no you do not have to decarb the weed before hand ive never messed with it and one of my chocolates will keep you high for hours

  5. marilyn March 19, 2016 at 12:45 am #

    Curious, can I use my transmitter by adding it to the melted chocolate and stir the two ingredients together.

    In response to these comments about using cannabis leaf while cooking. Some people may like eating a dried up old weed but it’s not very tasty or the texture is nasty too. However, medical marijuana patients should not be given food with actual leaf.

    My daughter decided one day she was going to make marijuana brownies… She dumped about a quarter ounce or less into a boxed brownie mix and bake them… The effect we got from this batch of brownies was crazy intense. Then, with the same marijuana… Went through the the process of making the butter and using it in brownies….although the effect was good….wasn’t nearly as intense as the first batch. I never claimed to know anything about cooking or baking with marijuana…but would appreciate some feedback on why this might be…I pretty confident my butter is made correctly (so to get the best results)

    Mixing dried cannabis with an oil also activates the THC. So if you use peanut butter, cocoa, dried finely ground cannabis and any assortment of nuts and chopped dried fruit, for example, you’ll get high. I’ve never been ill with this treatment, and none of my friends.

    How do you know the dose of each piece for this exact recipe? I got 24 chocolates using .8 grams of weed to six oz of chocolate.

  11. Lorrie March 3, 2017 at 10:05 pm #

    I’m new to all of this, but I find making the chocolates is easy, I love this recipe. Now, time to try something new. Any suggestions?
