Working with chocolate to make CBD Chocolate Bars can be frustrating. So, if you’re looking for a simple recipe then you’ve come to the right place. This recipe will help you in diluting that intense cannabis flavour by fusing it with chocolate. CBD chocolate bars are known to fall under European cuisine and every batch can contain up to 350 mg of THC. Cannabis and Chocolate are known to be used for fun and medical purposes, so why not combine them both?
Ingredients And Utensils Required
Four cups of chocolate
One-fourth cup of cannabis butter
One glass bowl
Mould shaped like a chocolate bar
Candy thermometer (Not mandatory)
Fill a saucepan with room temperature water and place it over medium heat. Once the water starts producing steam and has small sized bubbles, place a dry glass bowl over the saucepan. Pour the four cups of chocolate into the bowl to start the tempering process. Once the tempering process starts, pour in the cannabis butter and mix thoroughly to blend the melted chocolate with the cannabis butter.
If your glass bowl is not big enough, you can work in batches but make sure to wash your glass bowl after every use and portion the cannabis butter in relation to the amount of chocolate you are tempering. Tempering chocolate can be a tricky process as it is important to melt all the fats in the chocolate, however, the different types of fat present in the chocolate melt at different temperatures.
Therefore, it is essential to bring your chocolate to a temperature between 40 to 46 degrees Celsius or 104 to 115 degrees Fahrenheit. If you plan on making CBD chocolate bars with good consistency and no crystallization, purchasing a candy thermometer beforehand can be very helpful. It is important to mix the chocolate while it is melting and tempering, in order to distribute the heat. Once the melted chocolate has reached the above-mentioned temperature, take off the glass bowl from the saucepan and set it over a dry towel on your counter.
The dry towel is essential in order to remove the condensation that is present under the bowl; this also helps in maintaining the temperature of the chocolate. Place your chocolate bar-shaped mould next to the glass bowl. From this point forward, it is important to work as quickly as you can, in order to maintain the correct consistency of the CBD chocolate mixture. Grab a spoon or ladle and pour the mixture into the mould. One the mould is filled; tap it onto the counter to get rid of any air bubbles. Place the mould into the fridge and wait until it fully hardens.
CBD Chocolate bars can be great if you are hosting a party for fellow cannabis consumers as they are easy to make in batches. You can top these bars with nuts or even dried fruit. It is something that every stoner would love!
