When Typical Treats Don’t Cut it…
Silly reader, tricks (and treats) aren’t just for kids. These days, there are canna-butters and oils, even a THC-infused sugar, to add to your ghoulish ganja goodies on Halloween.
If you’re new to cooking with cannabis, however, this prospect may chill you to the bone. And the thought of calculating THC dosages is enough to give you nightmares.
There’s no need to be a scaredy cat! Instead of trying to figure it out on your own, take your holiday to a higher level with the 5 cannabis-infused Halloween recipes below.
Infused Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles
Halloween is sweeter for grownups this year thanks to Lo, a Colorado-based cannabis micro-influencer and host of the edible-focused food channel Lunch with Lo. Her chocolate and peanut butter-infused truffles from Episode 21 are a cannabis-inspired take on a beloved favorite, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Chocolate, peanut butter and cannabis. Can life get any better than this?
Don’t let the name fool you. Poison apples from Jeff the 420 Chef are intoxicating, not toxic. If you’re batty for candy and cannabis, you’re in for a real treat. They look super spooky with their ominous coloring and tree branch stem, but really they’re ultra sweet. So grab your candy thermometer, scoop up some kief and tie on your apron for a traditional Halloween recipe that takes candy apples to a higher level.
Creepy Finger Cookies
You’ve likely heard of a green thumb, but how about “green” fingers? This almond cookies recipe from Cannabis Chef Cheri Sicard will do the trick. It’s both morose and medicated thanks to our good friend, Mary Jane. Made with the chef’s marijuana butter, it’s the ultimate finger food for Halloween. Actual “fingers” included.
Cannabis Pumpkin Seeds
No need to feel gloomy if your sweet tooth is feeling savory. Not all cannabis-infused Halloween treats are made with sugar. For a spooky, salty snack, try these cannabis pumpkin seeds from Colorado-based Ballpark Holistic Dispensary. Add some garlic or chili powder if you really want to spice up your night.
Made with MagicalButterOil Concentrate (MBO), cannabis-infused magical gummies from MagicalButter.com turn your favorite everyday edible into a haunted Halloween bite. Apart from some minor toiling around a bubbling cauldron (a.k.a your stove top), these magical gummies are very easy to make. No trick! Use a Halloween-themed mold to give them extra spirit.
