People have busy lives and can’t always spend hours making edibles in the kitchen. Save time using this super easy cannabis chocolate recipe.
How to Make Cannabis Chocolate the Easy Way
Both chocolate and cannabis release feel-good chemicals in your brain. Also, chocolate makes cannabis more palatable by smoothing out the flavor. So, why do people love it so much? Once you try it, you will know.
The ingredient list for this recipe is short. You will need chocolate and cannabis. You can use finely ground decarboxylated cannabis or activated cannabis tincture. Use chocolate chips or baking chocolate of your choice.
Decarboxylate Cannabis For Making Chocolate
In order to decarboxylate cannabis, break dry cannabis into small pieces, spread out evenly on a baking tray and put into a 240°F preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Place decarbed cannabis into a coffee/spice grinder or use mortar/pestle and grind to a fine powder.
Heat baking chocolate or chocolate chips in a bowl placed on top of a pot of hot water. The bowl must have a larger diameter than the pot to prevent water from contaminating the chocolate. Do not cover the bowl when heating chocolate.
Once the chocolate melts and has a runny consistency, add the ground decarbed cannabis or activated tincture. Mix very well. Continue to heat gently until you have a smooth pourable consistency.
Pour into chocolate molds being careful not to get any water in the chocolate. Let chocolates cool at room temperature.
Store chocolate in a cool, dry place 65 to 68°F with humidity under 55%. The chocolate will remain stable for months.
Essential Chocolate Making Tips
You can add lecithin granules to chocolate to improve the viscosity of your chocolate.
Moisture and chocolate do not mix. Never add water, honey, syrup or vanilla extract when making chocolate. The chocolate will seize, thus it will not flow into molds.

This is straight up chocolate covered weed and it’s amazing. I used 4g of weed and a cup of chocolate chips, with a couple tsps lecithin, which made 22 chocolates, my moulds are 1 tsp but I fill them right up so I would say they’re a generous tsp. This is the high I love, I like to feel like I’m drunk but in total control, it keeps me from grabbing drinks when I’m being social and I have zero hangover, I just stay high and hydrate. I love a good sativa and this is amazeballs. Not to mention, I was getting a buzz just within an hour. If I sound like you, try the 4g and 1 cup!
How much lecithin to use? I have sunflower lecithin
Been looking all over for an answer to this question. Could the chocolate be used in a double boiler method to make other goods like brownies. Or would it neutralize it somehow. Am I better off just making butter or purchasing/making chocolate?
I add lecithin when i infuse decarbed weed with coconut oil. one tablespoon per cup of coconut oil. I prefer it this way because I strain out the weed and just use the coconut oil and chocolate. My basic recipe is 14-18 grams of decarboxilated weed -infuse with 2 cups coconut oil and two tablespoons of sunflower lecithin. I use the magic butter machine to infuse but you can use a slow cooker. Once strained, add about 2 cups of good chocolate. Whatever you like, milk, bittersweet etc. Make sure you mix really well so you don’t get some squares that are super strong and some that are duds.
I have not yet tried this recipe, but it seems Very easy to prepare as long as I have the ingredients (which I certainly do), I will make it tomorrow and let The Stoners Cookbook know how it came out and its effects.
Thanks again… and stay lifted!
Do you only use the flower for edibles or can you use other parts of the plant as well with the same effect?
The flowers are the only part of the plant that produce THC, which is what gets you high. Trying to make edibles from any other part of the plant would be pointless .
I’m also new but have a tolerance. I wanted to use some canna oil I made from a different site. I made the oil as directed so my wife could try as previously she tried a cookie that I had made way too potent. Can you give me some guidelines for dosage please ?
Do I not need to temper the chocolate?
If I refrigerate them will they bloom and get that white powdered look? Can I use a good dark chocolate for this, how much fat percentage do you recommend? I plan to use a tincture, however I do have some cannabutter made I could add if the dark chocolate needs more fat.
I haven’t tempered chocolate before, so I’d need to learn how.
Thank you in advance.
Chocolate can bloom in the fridge, especially if there is a significant change in temperature. Ideal temperature to store chocolate is 10-20°C. Chocolate should have no less than 30% fat in order to maintain viscosity. Also, it is not advisable to use cannabutter in chocolate. As for tempering, this is an advanced stage of chocolate making and I recommend you visit chocolatealchemy.com for precise instructions.
Is there enough fat to fully activate the cannabis?
It’s the decarboxylation process that activates the cannabinoids (done by heating cannabis). There is cocoa butter in chocolate and the cannabinoids are soluble in this fat.
What kind of tincture could I use?
how do I keep it from not melting at room temperature and I’m using coconut oil
It shouldn’t melt at room temperature. How much coconut oil did you use?
You don’t say how much cannabis to use.
I’m a newbie cannabis cooker.
I don’t recommend how much cannabis to use because it depends on how many servings you want to achieve and how potent you want them to be. But, as an example if you use 3 grams of weed to make 12 chocolates and your cannabis has 15% THC, each chocolate would have 33 mg THC. Most legal edibles have a maximum of 10 mg per serving, so if you are a new user of cannabis, you could use 1 gram instead for 12 chocolates.
The measurement breakdown was really helpful- thanks! going to make these tomorrow
I’m wondering how much ground pot would you start out trying in the 300 g of chocolate? 2g, 7 g or 14 g? I don’t want to waste any by using too much or too little. Also, how much lecithin would you add to 300g chocolate? Thanks for your advice. Maggie
It depends on how many servings you want to make and how strong you want the chocolates to be. I usually use 3 grams cannabis for 12 chocolates that are 22 mL and end up with about 40 mg THC per chocolate depending on the potency of the weed. I don’t use lecithin in chocolate because I don’t think it makes edibles stronger.
how do I keep it from not melting at room temperature
Hi- I just made the chocolate candy recipe.
Is it ok to keep in freezer?
I keep my regular chocolate in freezer, love it cold
If you like to eat cold chocolate, go right ahead and throw it in the freezer. Cold temperatures slow down the natural degradation of THC, so potency should maintain for a longer period.
How much tintures. Or oil. Do you use or one batch
Thank you, that was really helpful ☺
Love the article, i just want to know, how much decarbed cannabis do I need?
The amount of cannabis used in any recipe depends on how potent you would like each serving to be. Keep in mind the number of servings and the potency of your cannabis when dosing your edibles.
