- 1 and 1/3 cups of flaked coconut
- 1/3rd cup of sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- Pinch of salt
- Egg whites of 2 eggs
- Vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons of cannabis butter
- Baking chocolate or chocolate chips
- Chopped nuts (optional)
The first step is to preheat your oven to 325 degrees and grease a large biscuit sheet or tray. Next combine together in a bowl the coconut, sugar, flour and salt. Use your hands to mix them well and break off any large lumps of coconut or flour. Once they are mixed well, set them aside and move on to the egg whites. Crack the eggs and separate the egg whites from the yolk into a bowl. Then add half a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the egg whites. Next whip the egg whites very fast with a whisk or an electric hand mixer to get a nice shiny and frothy mixture. It is important to do this step well otherwise the eggwhites will run out of the meringue while it’s cooking. Now add the whisked egg whites and vanilla extract mixture to the dry coconut and flour mix and combine the dry and wet ingredients together by tossing them with wooden spoons as it gives them a light and fluffy look.
Once the mixture is ready put one tablespoon scoops of the mixture on the greased biscuit tray. You will get about a dozen scoops from this mixture. Put the tray into the preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes till the macaroons are golden brown. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn on the bottom. Next get to the marijuana chocolate. For this you will need to prepare a double boiler with a pan filled with water and a glass bowl placed above it. Bring the water to a boil and then add the cannabis butter to the bowl and let it melt. Once the butter has melted, start adding the chocolate to the cannabis butter in the bowl. As it melts, incorporate it gently with the butter using a spatula to get a glossy mixture. You can use any chocolate of your choice – milk, dark or white chocolate.
Check on the macaroons, they should be done by now. Take them out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling wire rack. Meanwhile the chocolate sauce should be ready. Keep the flame on simmer so the sauce remains liquid. Once the macaroons have cooled down they are ready to be dipped in the marijuana chocolate sauce. Hold them from the bottom and dip the tops gently into the sauce. If you want the macaroons to be stronger you can double dip them in the marijuana chocolate again. You can top them off with chopped nuts of your choice and voila! They are ready to be eaten.
