Easy Pot Brownies with Sea Salt for...Me
So today is 420, 2020. That's a lot of twenties. But with that one little four we're good for a certain holiday.
Just to be clear, that's not me right now. I'm sitting here with grey roots and weird eyebrows and a fast-growing pot belly trying to keep it together leaving my house once a week for the excitement of Longo's grocery store.
But not to worry, I still have flour, people! Try to take me down with a quarantine and I still come out on TOP.
So while I have a little less time at the moment to research the stellar people who have been involved in the ganja story, which is my usual jam (work! homeschool! not having a single solitary moment to my damn self!), I did find a few minutes to bring you (and me!) some easy pot brownies for this day that celebrates all things weed. These brownies take less than 45 minutes to pull together and they use simple ingredients that you've hopefully hoarded in your pantry for a moment such as this. With love from my lockdown hovel to yours. I hope you enjoy.
EASY POT BROWNIES WITH SEA SALT
Difficulty: Easier than eating a pot brownie with a mask on
Approximately 16 brownies using 5 tbsp (70 g) cannabutter yields approximately 5 mg THC per piece.
Let's go for Ann's home grown! I'm happy to share once COVID is over.
Ten minutes to prep, and another 25 minutes to bake.
5 tbsp (70 g) cannabutter
1 cup (180 g) sugar
⅓ cup vegetable or canola oil
2 eggs plus 1 yolk
splash of vanilla
¾ cups cocoa powder
½ cup all-purpose flour
⅛ tsp baking soda
¾ cups chocolate chips
a sprinkling of sea salt
Prepare an 8x8 square brownie pan by buttering it and sticking a square of parchment paper to cover the bottom. Set it aside. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a double-boiler or a metal bowl over boiling water, melt the cannabutter. Stir in the sugar and vegetable oil. Remove from heat. Stir in the eggs and yolk after the mixture has cooled enough that it won't cook the egg. Add vanilla.
Stir in the dry ingredients. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the pan. Bake your brownies, checking them after 20 minutes. Stick a knife into the middle -- it should finish with crumbly bits sticking to the knife.
Cut with a warm knife (run it under hot water and dry it) and enjoy your 420 hunker bunker. I know I will.
