Happy Easter everyone! This year, I decided to celebrate with a healthier medically delicious version of chocolate treats that I do not feel guilty about indulging in. These Dark Chocolate Kush Hazelnut Drops are packed with essential fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, protein, folate, poly-phenols, vitamin E, vitamin K, and flavonoids. Not only will these drops make your body happy nutrient wise, but they will also stimulate serotonin and endorphin production in the brain.
This recipe also allows for the flexibility of cannabis dosage, so you can make these Dark Chocolate Kush Hazlenut Drops either heavily or lightly medicated. Chocolate Kush is an indica dominant hybrid strain that possesses strong pain relief coupled with heavy cerebral effects which is wonderful for a lazy Sunday. They are the perfect treat during Easter brunch or to munch on throughout the day. Enjoy with a dark roast coffee as the flavors of Chocolate Kush impart a sweet chocolate flavor with a hint of vanilla.
Mise en place:
1 cup dark chocolate hazelnut butter (homemade or store bought)
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/4 cup Chocolate Kush infused raw coconut oil dosage of your choice
Set out the dark chocolate hazelnut butter and Chocolate Kush infused raw coconut oil until it achieves room temperature. In a medium to large size bowl, add the chocolate hazelnut butter and Chocolate Kush infused coconut butter. With a wooden spoon, stir this mixture until fully combined then place into a fridge covered for 15-20 minutes or until firm.
Using a scale, tare a new bowl and scoop out the Dark Chocolate Kush Hazlenut mixture into the bowl. Now divide the mixture into equal servings using the scale and spoon. Roll each serving in your hand to form it into a ball then roll in the ground flax seed. Place the Dark Chocolate Kush Hazlenut Drops onto a cookie tray lined with wax paper as you make them then place into the fridge. Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve or you can store them in the freezer for long term storage. Enjoy!
Classic chocolate making takes much invested time and can be very temperamental but the end process is very rewarding. Unfortunately, many people delving into the world of classic chocolate making end up getting very frustrated by how finicky the chocolate can act during this process and give up when they get less than desired results. Fortunately, this recipe is extremely simple and will get you the same results without all the fancy foot work.
Mise en place:
1 cup Ghirardelli 60% cacao bitter-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup high potency Hong Kong cannabutter
2 teaspoons Masala Chai mix
1 teaspoon instant Chai mix
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
In a double boiler add the chocolate chips and cannabutter on medium low. With a wooden spoon gently stir the chocolate and cannabutter as it melts until it is fully incorporated. Now add the Masala Chai mix, instant Chai mix, cinnamon and allspice into the medicated chocolate. Stir in the spices into the chocolate mixture until fully dissolved then pour or pipe into a candy mold tray. Depending on what kind of tray you have, you can choose to spray or not spray the molds with non-stick spray. Tap the chocolate tray on the counter to release any air bubbles then place into the freezer until set.
When the chocolates have set in the freezer, pull and place some parchment paper on a counter. Flip the chocolate tray carefully upside down while holding each of your hands on the end of the tray. Gently twist each hand in opposite directions and gently tap the tray on the counter to release the chocolates. Now you have medicated Hong Kong Masala Chai Dark Chocolates that you can savor whenever the craving for a delicious chocolate treat. Enjoy!
