Cannabis baking has come a long way. No longer relegated to dubious creations made in your communal dorm kitchen, you can now find cannabis-infused versions of everything from mints to shrimp chips. If you’re not a fan of the grassier taste that cannabis sometimes imparts, chocolate, as usual, is the solution.

this

recipe for cannabutter. You will only be using ¼ cup of it, so you’ll have plenty more to use however you like—cakes, cookies, or if you really want to take it to the next level, use a couple tablespoon of the cannabutter in this

caramel sauce

, and drizzle it over your brownies.

These brownies fit perfectly into our

8x8 Baking Dish

. We recommend the olive green if you’re feeling festive. Each brownie contains 5-10mg of THC, so dose accordingly, keep out of reach from kids, and try not to eat the whole pan in one sitting.
