“Benevolent Bakery's 250mg brownie mix will have you feeling like Private Miller from Pineapple Express, "a slice of butter meltin' on a big 'ol pile of flapjacks.... Yeah." Now, I can't speak to the 'brownie' side of the experience because the baker who prepared the infused treats did some adjusting to the 'just add water' formula, but I can vouch for the cannabis side of the experience and boy was it nice. A tasty, 15mg serving had my mind buzzing with relaxation and my mind gently melting into what became a very good night of sleep.”

THC Infused Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Delight your Valentine's Day with our tantalizing THC Infused Chocolate Covered Strawberries – the perfect blend of luxury and euphoria. Easy to make, they offer a delightful fusion of romance and relaxation.

infused chocolate covered strawberries

THC-infused Oil (6oz chocolate coats approx 1lb of strawberries, so estimate to preferred dosage strength)
1 lbs Strawberries (large, fresh, ripe, washed, and dried)
6oz Dark Chocolate, diced
2oz White Chocolate (optional, for decoration)
1 Tsp Coconut Oil (optional, to smooth the chocolate)

Double Boiler (or a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water)
Parchment Paper
Baking Sheet
Toothpicks (optional, for dipping)

Prepare the Strawberries
1. Inspect and Clean: Ensure strawberries are fully dry as water will cause the chocolate to seize.
2. Prep for Dipping: If desired, insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries for easier dipping.
Melt the Chocolate
1. Setup Double Boiler: Fill the bottom pot with a couple of inches of water, making sure the water does not touch the bottom of the top bowl when it's seated.
2. Melt Dark Chocolate: Add the dark chocolate and coconut oil (if using) to the top bowl. Melt them together, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat.
3. Add THC Oil: Once the chocolate is melted, stir in the THC oil thoroughly to ensure it's well distributed. Be mindful of the temperature as high heat can degrade THC potency.
Dip the Strawberries
1. Dip Strawberries: Hold a strawberry by the stem or toothpick and dip it into the THC-infused chocolate, swirling gently to coat it evenly. Let the excess chocolate drip off.
2. Set to Cool: Place the chocolate-dipped strawberries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
3. Chill: Refrigerate the dipped strawberries for about 30 minutes, or until the chocolate is firm.
Add Decorative Touches (Optional)
1. Melt White Chocolate: If using, melt white chocolate using the double boiler method.
2. Decorate: Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the dipped strawberries for a decorative touch.
3. Chill Again: Refrigerate until the white chocolate sets.

Serving and Storage:
Serve Chilled
1. Serve the THC-infused chocolate-dipped strawberries chilled. They are best enjoyed the same day but can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
2. Dosage Caution: Be sure to inform those partaking of the THC content and potency. Start with one and wait at least an hour to understand its effects before consuming more.

Enjoy this special, romantic treat responsibly and keep it out of reach of children and pets.
