🍫 Pot Brownies Recipe .
❥ 1 stick of unsalted butter that’s been infused with 3.5 grams of cannabis (see above)
❥ ¼ cup vegetable shortening
❥ ¾ cup of cocoa powder
❥ 1 cup cake flour
❥ 2 cups sugar
❥ ½ teaspoon salt
❥ 4 ounce bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
❥ ¼ teaspoon baking powder
❥ ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
❥ 2 jumbo eggs
❥ The guts of one vanilla bean .
🍫 Preheat to 350℉. If you’ve prepped your butter in a sous-vide bag, toss it into a bowl with warm water and let it soften fully before mixing the batter. Baking all brownies, even cannabis brownies, calls for your standard wet bowl, dry bowl batter technique, so start by mixing all of the dry ingredients together. Then, in a second bowl, combine vanilla and eggs. .
🍫 Melt the chocolate gently with either a double boiler or in a microwave in short bursts. Stir in the shortening into the chocolate until it melts. Stream the chocolate mixture slowly into the eggs and mix with a spatula, then fold in cannabutter. Make sure everything is uniformly mixed without aerating too much. .
🍫 Fold the wet batter into the combined dry ingredients, and stir this sinfully thick goop again until it’s just mixed. Here’s where my bff OXO bowl scrapers come in handy: they allow you to squeeze out every last drop of the fudge into a waiting greased and parchment lined 9x7 pan. Smooth out the mixture and smack it flat on the counter a few times to make sure there is no air trapped inside. .
🍫 Bake for 15 minutes, rotate the pan, then bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes. At this point your brownies are warm and edible, but be warned that their structure will come from cooling completely, similar to chocolate chip cookies. If you can’t wait for them to cool completely, at least use a big, sharp knife to cut off a slab so you don’t damage the innards too much. Use the paper to take them out of the pan and cool the rest of the way on a wire rack. .
🍫 Portion, or don’t, but keep in mind that each 1-inch square will have roughly 29 milligrams of THC, a potent dose, so serve small chunks.
