They say that sloth is the mother of innovation but in this case it was desperation to make a good impression. Long story short but I was offered a job writing for a new website called The fresh toast and my editor invited me to the west coast launch party.

Mise en place

This wasn’t a bunch of nerds gathered around a computer in someone’s basement, this was a big shit event at a ballroom in downtown Seattle, a suite and tie type of thing. I was determined to make an impact and somehow not do anything stupid. While I might have been a bit out of my element, both my editor and publisher went out of there way to make me feel welcome. Having 4 dozen of these to pass out to the crowd also helped.

Mise En Place

  • A large pot
  • A small pot
  • A large mixing bowl that sits on top of the pot
  • A whisk
  • A rubber spatula
  • Silicon molds (see notes)


  • 20 ounces of milk or dark chocolate
  • 5-10 ounces of cannabis butter depending on how strong the butter is and how strong you want the final product to be.
  • Cannabis sugar cookie crumbs (optional)
  • A dash of chili powder (see note)

Method of Preparation

  • Fill the pot about halfway with water and set to simmer on the stove
  • You’re cooking at home, it doesn’t have to be perfect
  • Pour the chocolate chips in the bowl and set on top of the large pot with water.
  • Let the chocolate melt while melting the butter in the smaller pot
  • Once both the chocolate and butter melt, slowly add the butter to the chocolate whisking well
  • Add the cookie crumbs and chili powder and then pour into the molds
  • Let em set in the fridge for a few hours or even better, overnight.
  • You can wrap them in foil if you’re giving them away or just keep em in your fridge for a quick pick me up.


  • I like dark chocolate but you can also use milk chocolate or a combination of both.
  • I added the sugar cookie crumbs for a bit of texture and a little extra kick but you can feel free to add chopped nuts or even dried fruit.
  • Silicone molds. These are great to have in the Kitchen and I used ice cube trays I got a the local grocery store but you can find them in all kinds of shapes and sizes on amazon and they’re not too expensive for how long they last.
