420 Strawberry Cheesecake Bites

THChristi's 420 Strawberry Cheesecake BitesHappy 420!  In celebration of this marijuana movement holiday I made up a batch of these delightful 420 Strawberry Cheesecake Bites.  Packed with a double dose of medicated goodness these little treats will surely get your party started!

Here's what you'll need:
  • 1/4 package of cream cheese (2 ounces)
  • 1/4 Cup of Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/2 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs
  • 9 fresh ripe strawberries 
  • 2 teaspoons of cannabis infused coconut oil (or Cannabutter)
  • 1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon cannaoil (or Cannabutter
  • 6 chocolate candy melts (these are optional for putting a "lid" on your strawberries
Filled BerriesInstructions:
  1. Finely chop 3 of your strawberries.  Set aside.  
  2. Carefully cut out the stem and core of the other 6 strawberries.  Place each berry with the cut side down on a cutting board.  Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine your cream cheese and infused coconut oil.  Blend until well mixed.
  4. Drain any liquid that has accumulated on your chopped strawberries and discard.  
  5. Add your chopped berries, graham cracker crumbs, vanilla and powdered sugar to your cream cheese/coconut oil mixture and blend well.  
  6. Place mixture in fridge for about 15 minutes to set up.
  7. Now fill your cored berries with the cream cheese mixture.  The easiest way is with a pastry bag or put filling in a ziplock bag, cut off a small amount from the corner and squeeze the bag to fill the berries.
  8. Return your filled berries to the fridge to chill.
  9. While your berries are chilling out place some wax paper on a plate or sheet pan.
  10. To prepare the chocolate coating you will want to use a microwave safe mug.  Add your milk chocolate chips and your cannaoil into this mug.
  11. Microwave this mixture in 30 second intervals stirring between each time until you have a smooth mixture.
  12. Remove your filled berries from the fridge.  One at a time dip these into your chocolate coating mixture and place on your waxed paper plate or pan.  

**Optionally add 1 candy melt as a lid to your filling on each berry.
Return dipped berries to the fridge and allow to set up for 1/2 hour or longer.
Serve and enjoy!

Stay Safe & Have a Happy 420!

Gooey Ganja Smores Bars

Oh yeah!  I just whipped up a test batch of these and after the first bite I could tell that this is a recipe worth sharing.  Now to get the blog done before the medicine kicks in and slows my typing to a crawl :0).

Ok so to make my Gooey Ganja S'mores Bars you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 C Chocolate chips.  I used a combination of semi-sweet, peanut butter, dark chocolate and some pink chocolate chips I had left from valentines day.  You can use whatever kind you prefer or mix up a batch like I did.
  • 3 Cups of Golden Grahams Cereal
  • 3 C mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 C mini marshmallows cut in 1/2
  • 5 T Canna butter
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp mexican vanilla extract (or use regular vanilla extract)
  • 1 Cup of Wiltons milk chocolate candy melts
You'll also need a 9x13 pan greased with cannabis butter with a little canna butter reserved for greasing your hands.
A large mixing bowl and a medium microwave safe bowl & a small microwave safe bowl. This is a pretty easy project, but still takes anywhere from 15-30 minutes.

So let's get started!  
  1. Place your Chocolate chips in the freezer (they need to be cold for about 10 minutes to keep from melting when we mix the bars together.)
  2. In your large bowl mix together the Golden Grahams and the 1/2 Cup of mini marshmallows that you cut in 1/2.  Set aside.
  3. In your medium bowl, mix together 5 T of Canna butter and 3 Cups of mini marshmallows.  Place in the microwave for about 1 minute.  Remove from the microwave and stir.  If your marshmallows haven't melted all the way, return to the microwave in 30 second intervals and stir each time. 
  4. Once the marshmallows and the Canna butter have melted and blended together fully, add the salt and the vanilla and stir until well blended.
  5. Add the chocolate chips to your cereal mixture and mix it up
  6. Pour the marshmallow mixture over your cereal mixture.  With greased hands mix it well together and press it into your greased pan. Press it in well so that as it cools it will form nice bars, but not so hard that you break up your cereal.  Set aside.
  7. Place your candy molds in your small microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute.  Stir.  Return to microwave in 30 second intervals stirring between each.  Do this until it is fully melted.  ***TIP:  Candy melts cannot get even a drop of water in them or they will freeze up into a nasty lumpy clump.  Be sure your bowl, hands and spoon are completely dry!
  8. Pour your melted candy melts over the top of your cereal bars.  Spread with a knife to get a nice even top.
  9. Place your pan into the fridge to set up for 20 minutes or until they have chilled.
  10. Cut and serve.
To store, place indivindual bars into ziplocks.  Can store in fridge or in the cupboard.  These will store about as long as homemade cookies, about 5 days to a week, so eat them up.
