Cannabis Chocolate Candies

Time to have your cake and eat it too! If you’ve had a chance to read any of my previous articles, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I am now 100% smoke free! It’s taken me several months but I think I’m finally kicking the habit. Okay, so truth be told, I still use an electronic cig but I can say this is a huge improvement from the half pack of Marlboros and 3 heavily packed bowls a day.

I have seen the light and it shines the way to a newer, healthier, higher version of Nancy. Come with me… and you’ll be… in a LAAAAAAAAND of pure imagination! This recipe makes a batch of somewhere around 20 servings if you make truffles around a tablespoon. The best part about these candies is that you can customize not only the flavors but also mix up a PALEO-friendly version so you don’t feel so guilty about having a sweet tooth. Here’s the chocolate base recipe below as well as a basic guide for creating your own jammy flavoring! I’ve noticed from personal experience that thee candies work WAY better when taken with a cup of joe. I add crushed up expresso beans to the mixture in case I’m running late and can’t brew a pot in time.

Canna-Coco Candies Base Recipe:

1 cup of COCONUT CANNAOIL

1 cup coco powder (I use HERSEY’S Natural Unsweetened Coco)

1/2 cup honey

2 Tbsp perserve of your choice (yes, you can use Smucker’s)

1 tsp vanilla

pinch of salt

2 Tbsp of butter (leave this out for the PALEO version)

*Combine all ingredients EXCEPT THE BUTTER into a small sauce pan. Stir slowly until incorporated on LOW HEAT and then drop the pad of butter into the pan. Swirl the sauce pan to incorporate the and pour into your parchement paper lined baking dish or silicon molds. Sprinkle your expresso beans over top and let set in the freezer for 20 minutes-ish. Make sure to store in the refrigerator as these have a tendency to soft quickly.

Simple Berry Perserve: ratio based recipe using a small sauce pan

1 part fresh or frozen berries of your choice

1 part honey

zest and squeeze of lemon

pinch of salt

*Bring to a boil so the berries can start to pop. Lower heat and let mixture simmer until it has reduced by at least half, YOU’RE DONE!
