I couldn’t decide if I should call these chocolate cookies or chocolate espresso cookies, but then we wouldn’t have this awesome alliteration. The coffee flavor is so mild you wouldn’t even guess there’s espresso powder in there, but it does make the chocolate taste so much richer! I doubled the amount of cannabis butter I usually use, and I still can’t taste or smell any cannabis!
Quick note on cooking with cannabis if you’ve just arrived here. I like to use 1 tablespoon of my homemade cannabis butter per 12 servings which makes each serving approximately 2.5mg. Because I made these cookies as a gift for someone else, I doubled the amount of cannabis butter I normally use. This recipe yields 30 cookies (actually this last time I only made 28 – oops), so I substituted 5 tablespoons of cannabis butter into my recipe. You can adjust the strength of you’re edibles accordingly. It just takes a tiny bit of math!
One last thing about these cookies: Theyre great with ice cream!
