Nothing Says "Love" Like Chocolate (and Cannabis)


Long gone are the days when edibles were only available in two arid categories: dry brownies and stale cookies. Cannabis has become a culinary experience in recent years, one where creative dishes and desserts are designed to suit every palate. From drinks and juices to condiments and marinades, cannabis-infused recipes are a hot (and cold!) commodity with few contemporary limitations.

As part of the Tweed Pantry, we’re sharing some of our favourite recipes with you in hopes they will provide as many options for incorporating Tweed Cannabis Oil into a healthy diet as there are infused recipes out there. This month, we’re celebrating love the only way we know how: sweet, sweet chocolate (and cannabis)!

Tools:
-Cutting knife
-Toothpicks
-Double broiler (or a glass bowl over a pot of water)

Ingredients:
-Chocolate (approximately 1 tbsp. of your favourite chocolate, melted, for each strawberry you dip)
-4 medium-sized strawberries
-Other additions (matcha green tea, grenadine, sprinkles)

Process:
1) Rinse strawberries and pat dry on paper towels. Strawberries must be completely dry for the chocolate to stick. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper.
2) In a double broiler, melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally until smooth. At this point you can flavour your chocolate with matcha green tea, grenadine or another flavour of your choosing.
3) For customers adding Tweed Cannabis Oil, drizzle your dose into the chocolate using your Tweed syringe and stir well until completely mixed.
4) Remove chocolate from heat and let cool for 2-5 minutes. Continue occasionally stirring to prevent cannabis oil from separating.
5) Holding them by toothpicks, dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture. Place on waxed paper to set. Refrigerating dipped strawberries will help the chocolate set quickly.
6) Once the chocolate has set, enjoy!

Enjoy responsibly!

I am Chef and an edibles producer in Montreal. I am also a cannabis patient. I have developed methods for making different oils, nut butters and chocolate (ganache and bars) and explore other types of extractions when and where I can. I record my results and methods in hopes to employ these skills with a cannabis producer. I hope to master the results and properties of my product. I have developed my brand, as well. I plan to make cooking with Cannabis the next step in my Chef career, and I also hope to teach it to caregivers, patients and Cannabis enthusiasts.
Please, if possible, contact me for any positions and internships you may have. I am willing to relocate to pursue a career in Cannabis extraction and culinary development.
Thank you! Have a great day!

Hi, these look yummy as well. Which of your oils has the highest THC?
