5 Materials for Infused Fondue
1 heat-safe bowl
1 large pot
2 long-stemmed forks (or regular forks)
Knife & cutting board
5 Ingredients: The Infused Chocolate Dip
6 ounces of chocolate of your choice (milk/dark/white; Hershey/Nestle/Ghirardelli/etc.)
1 1/4 cups of cannabis-infused milk
2 tablespoons of cannabis-infused butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
2 tablespoons of chocolate liqueur (optional)
*Note: to reduce taste of cannabis or potency, use only one of the infused ingredients.
Choose Your Ingredients to Dip
Angel Food cake
Rice Crispie treats
Mini eclairs/cream puffs
Place the chocolate in the heat-safe bowl then place bowl in pot (the cooking utensil, not the cannabis, just to be clear...). Fill pot with water until its about an inch below the bowl's top. Place on oven and turn heat up to a gentle simmer. Chocolate should begin to melt - use stirring spoon to stir any clumps out.
Add the cannabis-infused milk and cannabis-infused butter while stirring slowly. Remember that cannabis can't be heated above the mid-300's (degrees in F) without destroying cannabinoids, and chocolate begins to melt in the 80's. Find a nice in-between if you have a thermometer on hand.
Add the vanilla extract and chocolate liqueur. Stir & taste. Add any extra herbs or spices to enhance flavor.
Chop up the pieces of fruit or cake you've chosen and place them on plate. Remove pot from heat and serve with chosen dippers.
An easier method is to simply add a concentrated form of cannabis to the chocolate concoction such as decarboxylated oil.
We hope you enjoy this recipe and stay safe this Valentine's Day while enjoying it with your significant other or friends, depending on whether you're taken or single.
