In my quest to continue to find ways to incorporate cannabis into meals, snacks and drinks, I bring you today – canna-coco-crispy treats.
Let’s face it! You love Rice Krispies treats. Who doesn’t? Gooey marshmallow – rice krispies – what’s not to love? Making them with chocolate rice krispies – well – that’s just amazing, right? Yeah, trust me. It is amazing. So, how do you make them with cannabis?
It’s so easy!! Instead of regular butter, you add canna-budder. I mean, it cannot get any easier than that. Make sure you use the vanilla extract. It cuts some of the “weedy” taste from the treats.
One and a half bags of marshmallows
6 tblsp of CannaBudder
6 cups of coco Rice Krispies
2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
Melt the marshmallows over a medium heat – you don’t want to roast the marshmallows – just melt them – add in the budder and vanilla extract. Mix all that together – spread in a pan and let cool. Oh, it’s yummy.
I shared with a couple of friends (UBBU) and both gave it high marks for taste, and the little buzz that they got off it.
I approach cooking with cannabis in a way that could be considered microdosing. Microdosing is when you ingest a small amount of cannabis throughout the day. You don’t necessarily get the euphoria or the “high” off of it. But, you just feel good. If you have anxiety or a headache, it’s just enough to take the edge off – calm you down -and make everything a lot easier to handle. If you have chronic pain, it’s enough to take the edge off the pain, but still with it enough to remain productive. Microdosing is great for people who have to work, and can’t be “stoned” all day. You feel good, you’ll have a decent day.
The way I microdose is very easy. In my morning routine, an eyedropper of tincture in my coffee. Cannabudder on a bagel or toast or a breakfast sandwich of some kind.
Lunch – either a salad with cannabis infused balsamic vinaigrette. Or one of my favorite lunches – a chicken wrap with lettuce, onions with balsamic vinaigrette. Again, not enough to make me high as a kite, just enough to take off the edge of the pain and stop the tremors.
Dinner – well – you’ve seen some of my dinner recipes if you have been following this blog for any amount of time. But, I will use canna-canola oil to brown meat. I will use canna-budder to make saute vegetables. Any way I can add it in, I will.
Snacks/desserts – canna-banana bread, canna-coco-rice crispy treats, strawberry high cakes.
Microdosing is not hard once you get used to introducing cannabis into all of your cooking routines.
Next week: cannabis sweet tea – my take on a southern classic. Hope you’ll come back for it!
