Easter is a special time that is full of celebration and delicious chocolates. This year, why not celebrate with a healthier (but still delicious) medicated take on chocolate treats that you won’t 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 they make your body happy nutrient-wise, they’ll also stimulate serotonin and endorphin production in your brain, which can help promote better moods and sleep.
This recipe also allows for flexibility of cannabis dosage, so you can make them either heavily or lightly medicated: Chocolate Kush is an indica-dominant hybrid strain that possesses strong pain relieving effects and heavy cerebral impacts, a combination that makes for a wonderful lazy Sunday.
These chocolate drops are the perfect treat during Easter brunch or just to munch on throughout the day. Enjoy with a dark roast coffee and 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
Step 1: Set out the dark chocolate hazelnut butter and Chocolate Kush-infused raw coconut oil until it reaches room temperature.
Step 2: 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 cover and place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes or until firm.
Step 3: Using a scale, tare a new bowl and scoop out the dark Chocolate Kush hazlenut mixture into it. 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 it 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 they tray into the fridge.
Step 4: Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve or you can store them in the freezer for long term storage. Enjoy!
If Chocolate Kush’s THC content tests around 22 percent THC, then 22 percent of 1,000 mg would equal 220 mg per gram. Substitute the number of your strain’s THC percentage and do the math to figure out your desired dosage per teaspoon for the cannabis-infused coconut oil that you make.
I would recommend any strain with terpenes that match the chocolaty flavor profile of Chocolate Kush: Chocolate Thai, Chocolope, Chocolate Chunk and Chocolate OG would be great alternative choices. Be creative, follow your nose and taste buds and have fun with it.
