Cannabutter Chocolate Truffles

I love a little piece of chocolate before bed, especially when I add a small amount of cannabutter for the relaxation of an edible ... without the huge price tag!

If you prefer to just make these without the THC, just substitute the cannabutter with regular butter. I completely took the recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction and adjusted it for my needs.

Make sure all your cannabutter treats are very clearly labelled so friends don't pop by and accidentally eat three or four of these before they realize. Sorry about that Doug, but the cookies were just cooling on the counter!


    8 ounces of high quality chocolate, very finely chopped
    2/3 cup whipping cream
    30 grams Cannabutter
    1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    toppings: (optional) unsweetened cocoa powder, sprinkles, crushed nuts, melted or tempered chocolate


Place the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl. Set aside.

Heat the heavy cream until you see little bubbles around edge of the pot. Don’t overheat, this should not boil. You can use stove or microwave. 

Add the cannabutter to the heavy cream until melted. Pour this mixture evenly over the chipped chocolate and without stirring, allow it to sit for 5 minutes minutes. Add the vanilla and stir until the chocolate has completely melted.

Forming the truffles: 

 Method 1
Immediately after stirring everything together and before it hardens too much, pour the mixture into silicone candy moulds and freeze about an hour. Pop out of the moulds, label and freeze in bags.

Method 2
 Pour chocolate into a shallow glass baking dish & set in the fridge for an hour or two. Scoop the set truffle mixture into 1 Tablespoon-sized mounds. I weigh out the amount for consistency. Roll each into balls. This gets a little sticky, so keep the mixture cold.  Roll each into toppings, if desired.
Label clearly. Cover tightly and store truffles at room temperature for 3-4 days or in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. If freezing, don't use toppings.

Notes: Truffles taste best at room temperature! Thaw in the refrigerator, then bring to room temperature, if desired, before enjoying. I usually pull them out a few at a time and keep them in the fridge for treats.
