The Best Pot Brownie Recipe You’ll Ever Try

Posted by MMJ Jill on Dec 07, 2021

One of the greatest stoner edibles that stands the test of time is the famous pot brownie. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t enjoy a chocolatey, fudgy, sweet treat that overwhelms their taste buds and satisfies the munchies? Infusing this decadent dessert with cannabis will literally bring you a sense of euphoria instantly in the form of a “sugar high,” and you’ll feel a second wave when the weed kicks in later.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to bake the best pot brownie you’ll ever try. Our easy weed brownie recipe will show you the step-by-step process of how to make one of the oldest and tastiest infused desserts in modern weed culture. Whether you’ve made hundreds of edibles or you’re not quite sure how to make weed brownies, you’re in good hands.

Pot Brownie Recipe Ingredients

First, you’ll need to make two trips, one to the dispensary (perhaps at a Des Plaines dispensary or one nearby?) and one to the grocery store. At your local dispensary, you’ll need to purchase your favorite flower. If this is your first time baking with edibles, you may want to ask the friendly budtender for some advice on which marijuana strain is best for pot brownies from a box mix.

Then, once you’ve purchased your cannabis, head to the store to buy your baking ingredients. You’ll need a Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix (yum!), milk, butter, and eggs. 

Cannabutter Recipe 

Once you have gathered all the baking ingredients you need, start the process by making your own cannabutter. 

Cannabutter Ingredients: 

  • Butter
  • Dried Cannabis Flower

Lucky for you, we’ve previously detailed 6 Easy Steps to Making Cannabis-Infused Butter and Oils. You’ll need the butter and the flower you purchased at the marijuana dispensary for this recipe. Follow the instructions in our previous post, and you’ll be ready to use your butter to bake your delicious pot brownies.

Keep in mind that this process can take a while, but the end product is a perfect cannabutter that you’ll combine with your brownie mix to make edible weed brownies. First-time edible bakers that aren’t sure how to make pot brownies will have a better-tasting finished product when they use cannabutter. 

As you follow these six steps to make your cannabutter, you may be conscious that you need a way to mask the weed smell in your kitchen. Try any of these 27 ways to cover up the smell of weed

Now, it’s time to begin baking your pot brownies. 

Our Easy Pot Brownie Recipe 

Use a Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, and bake these cakey brownies with a few indulgent modifications, of course! 

Weed Brownie Ingredients: 

  • Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix
  • ¼ Cup Water, or for a Creamier Version, Add Milk 
  • 5.3 Tablespoons of Cannabutter
  • 1 Large Egg

Baking Directions: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a baking pan with cannabutter or a nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. Add milk, melted cannabutter, and the egg in a medium mixing bowl and stir until fully mixed. 
  3. Add the Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Brownie Mix to the wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly. It’s important to make sure that the cannabutter infusion is properly mixed all throughout the chocolate brownie batter.
  4. Spread the fudgy brownie batter evenly into the prepared pan. 
  5. Baking times vary depending on the pan size. For an 8” x 8” (metal pan), the bake time is 39 - 43 minutes, for an 8” x 8” (glass baking pan), 43 - 48 minutes, and for a 9” x 9” (metal pan) 39 - 43 minutes. 
  6. Let the cannabis brownies cool in the pan before cutting them into squares. 
  7. Serve these delicious pot brownies. 

Keep in mind that with edibles such as pot brownies, it takes a while to feel the effects of consuming cannabis. It’s also fairly difficult to gauge the exact potency when following a pot brownie recipe, so take your time and have other munchies on hand that will tide you over. 

If you are a stoner newbie, patience is a good thing to remember. Even though you may want to immediately reach for that next mouth-watering weed brownie, wait it out for approximately a half-hour to an hour to see how you handle the high. Then, if you want to get even more lifted, you can indulge and consume another pot brownie. 

If you follow our modifications to the Ghirardelli recipe, you’ll have a rich, gooey, chocolatey brownie infused with weed that is both satisfying and sweet. As part of your personal stoner starter kit, you may want to keep a box of brownie mix on hand for the next time a craving sets in.

If you’re making a large batch of these easy pot brownies, you may want to store your edibles for future snacking. They’ll last a few days in an airtight container, but you can also freeze pot brownies to keep them fresh for up to three months.

We hope with our easy-to-follow instructions, stoners with a sweet tooth will be able to make pot brownies from a box mix in a few simple steps.
