Ohhh my… we are going to have some fun, aren’t we? As promised, today’s post is about a new medible. While perusing Pinterest I found a recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter cups in the middle. I posed the question to my people – #UBBU(tm) – and we decided that this should be the next medible in our never ending bid to make consumption of cannabis in food. So, while drinking a cup of coffee, it was time to break the THC baking mix out, and get happy.
So, I discussed the Baking Mix a little last night. Just to refresh – this powder is essentially 180mg of activated THC. I have no idea how they make it. I’m just happy that they do. It can be put in just about anything you bake — pie crusts, brownies, cookies, breads, cornbread and quick breads – like banana, pumpkin or zucchini. All you have to do is whisk it into your dry ingredients. Then add your wet ingredients – and that’s the magic. When you use it in brownies or cookie bars, 3″x3″ brownie/cookie bars has 20mg of THC in it. The great thing about it is that it doesn’t leave a “weed” taste in your medible. One packet of the baking mix costs me $25 at the dispensary.
So, what is today’s magical medible? It’s brownies with peanut butter cups in the middle. So, what do we do? It’s so easy and requires no real work on your part.
Open the packet of THC baking mix and put it into a clean, dry bowl. Now, add the remaining dry ingredients (whether you are using a boxed mix or making it from scratch) and use a whisk to fully incorporate the baking mix in with your dry ingredients.
Add your wet ingredients. Then, bake as you normally would. Kids – that’s it. That’s all you have to do.
So, this upper picture is a brownie layer, peanut butter cup, brownie and then broken up peanut butter cups on top.
So, that’s really it. Now, I am one of those people who hates the edge pieces of brownies – I hate when they get overcooked and they get hard and crumbly. Now, for this particular recipe, I lowered the baking temperature from 350* to 325*. I set the timer for 50 minutes. I then covered the pan and put it back in for another 10 minutes. As you can see from the picture, no hard ends or corners. It’s going to be truly fudgy in every piece. Once the pan cools, I will put it in a large 1 gallon zip loc bag. That will keep it moist for the entire until they are gone.
Cooking with cannabis really has changed my life. I’m going to continue to expand what I do until for all intents and purposes nearly everything I make has cannabis in it. I realize my limitations – obviously, I’m not going to make Brownies Peanut Budder cups for where I work. Although, Lord knows some of them can do with a little loosening up. And even though I know some of my best girlfriends partake, but others do not, so I wouldn’t cook with it for girls night or parties. And both my kids are in professions that they get randomly tested. Okay – so I’m going to go cut a piece and we’re gonna try them, wait a half hour for it to hit and see how it is.
OHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYYLANTA!!!!!!! That was yummy. Very very yummy. I cut them into bite size pieces – so it is 10mg THC in the bite size pieces. Ohhh my, that was yummy.
