If you are looking for ways to make this Easter more cannabis-friendly, you’ve come to the right place. In today’s article we will be sharing an amazing recipe for weed-infused chocolate eggs.
The recipe is quite simple and doesn’t require a lot of equipment. And, let’s not forget that cooking with cannabis can be a fun get together activity for you and your friends.
Before we dig into this recipe, a word of caution — these Easter eggs will contain cannabis, and therefore should be kept away from children.
How to Make Weed-Infused Easter Chocolate Eggs?
- ½ cup of (softened) cannabutter
- 220 grams of (softened) cream cheese
- 7 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- White or dark chocolate
- 2 cups of water
- Chocolate sprinkles (optional)
- A large bowl
- A mixer
- A tray
- Parchment paper
- A spatula
- Kitchen mittens
- Before you start cooking with cannabis, prepare the cannabutter and cream cheese by softening them. They are easily softened at room temperature. So, the only thing you need to do is to leave them at room temperature one hour before.
- In a large bowl mix together the cannabutter, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar. Make sure to mix well until it starts to look like a workable dough.
- Once your dough is ready, prepare a tray with parchment paper. Using your hands, take some dough, roll it into an egg shape, and put it on the tray. Repeat this process until you have no dough left.
- After you’ve finished creating egg shapes, put them all in the fridge for at least an hour. Keep them refrigerated until hard.
- Take a saucepan, put 2 glasses of water, and bring it to boil. Put another bowl on top, and don’t forget to wear the oven mitts. In this bowl, you will be melting chocolate. You can use dark, or white, it’s up to you. Use the spatula for this process.
- Take the eggs out of the fridge, dip each egg in the chocolate and put it back on the parchment paper. In this step, you can also put some chocolate sprinkles on the eggs to make them more colourful.
- Refrigerate for half an hour, or until the chocolate becomes hard.
- And, voila, you have your Easter eggs ready!
Bonus tip: if you are using white chocolate, you can also add food colouring, and make these Easter cookies more playful and eye-catching.
Now that your Easter eggs are finished, the only thing left is to enjoy.
Don’t forget that the strength of the cookies will largely depend on the strength of your cannabutter. So, make sure to take this into consideration when preparing your weed chocolate eggs.
It’s also important to mention that edibles take longer to kick in, so be patient with these nuggets, cause it might take a while.
Hope you enjoyed our weed-infused chocolate egg recipe, and have a happy Easter!

It all started in 1979 on a small Hawaiian island, with a group of promising students and athletes that would hang out after school, riding in a Volkswagen van.
This group of friends loved to indulge in Pakalolo (noun: the Hawaiian word for cannabis) – or as locals called it: Choom. They named themselves the “Choom Gang” and would go on to influence our world as successful lawyers, entrepreneurs, and even the 44th president of the United States.
But back then, it was never about the future, it was about good people sparking ideas, sharing adventures, and cultivating good times.
1. Please consume responsibly.
2. When canning any food at home (e.g. cannabutter or canna-oil) you should be very careful since there can be a risk of the appearance of toxin that can lead to botulism, a very serious illness. This happens when food is canned, processed, stored or handled. Bacteria that cause botulism can very quickly grow in cannabis edibles that are made at home. Bacteria can cause botulism poisoning which is a very serious illness that affects the body’s nerves and produces serious health consequences.
