Serving the Cannabis Infused Hot Chocolate

Once your hot chocolate is finished, you’ll want to pour it into mugs. If you’re using a mug with a handle, be careful not to touch the mug with your bare hand after handling the cannabis-infused butter. Use a spoon or some other utensil to hold the mug by the rim. This will prevent any of the THC from being absorbed through your skin and into your bloodstream. You don’t want all of your hard work (and weed) to go to waste, do you?

Tips and Tricks

If you want to make the perfect cannabis-infused hot chocolate, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, it’s important to start with high-quality chocolate. Choosing a chocolate with a high cacao content will result in a richer, more flavorful hot chocolate. Second, be careful not to over-infuse your hot chocolate with cannabis. Start with a small amount of cannabis-infused butter or oil and increase the amount to taste. And finally, don’t forget to enjoy your hot chocolate responsibly!

Q: How much THC should I use in my recipe?
A: The amount of THC you use in your recipe will depend on your preferences and the potency of your cannabis. If you are using a low-potency cannabis, you may want to use more in order to achieve the desired effects. If you are using a high-potency cannabis, you may want to use less to avoid overwhelming yourself. Start with a small amount and increase as necessary.

Q: Can I make this recipe without using milk?
A: While milk helps to smooth out the flavor of the cannabis, you can technically make this recipe without it. Simply substitute water for the milk when making your infusion. Keep in mind that the final product will not be as rich or creamy without the milk.

Q: Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
A: Yes, you can make this recipe ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days.
