CBD-Infused Chocolate Truffles
Classy, customizable, and decadent, CBD-infused chocolate truffles are a timeless way to celebrate Valentine's Day. They’re as easy to make as infused brownies or fudge and far classier.
They take just a few ingredients and steps to create. The one catch is that they can melt at warm room temperatures, so you need to keep them refrigerated until serving. Keeping CBD edibles chilled is a good idea anyway, as it will help them stay potent.
- 8 oz semisweet chocolate chips (or any other chocolate chopped into small pieces)
- ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons CBD-infused butter
- Cocoa powder/confectioner’s sugar
- Chopped nuts for coating truffles
Heat butter and cream to a boil in a saucepan.
Pour butter/cream mixture over chocolate chips in a mixing bowl.
Let rest for 5 minutes, then stir with whisk until smooth.
Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Use a spoon to form small balls with chocolate mixture.
Roll balls in cocoa powder, confectioner’s sugar or nuts.
Store by keeping in an airtight container separated by waxed paper in the refrigerator for up to two weeks or in the freezer for up to two months.
Nougat aka torrone is a classy marshmallow-like treat that originated in Italy as a wedding candy. It’s easy to make as a basic recipe, and you can also dress it up by adding fruits and nuts or dunking it in chocolate coating.
In terms of specialized equipment, you will need a candy thermometer for this recipe and it helps to have edible rice paper.
- 3 large egg whites at room temperature
- 3 cups of granulated sugar
- 1 cup honey
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup water
- 4 tbsp CBD-Infused Butter, melted
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 cups almonds
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Edible rice wafer paper (optional)
Spray an 8x11” pan with non-stick spray and line the bottom with a single layer of rice wafer paper.
Add sugar, honey, corn syrup, and water to a large saucepan. Put over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Put a candy thermometer in the sugar solution and continue to heat while monitoring the temperature..
When the temperature reaches 270° F, beat egg whites in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer until they form stiff peaks. Return to monitoring the temperature of the sugar solution.
Once the sugar solution reaches 290° F, remove it from the heat. Turn the electric mixer back on and slowly pour the sugar solution into the egg whites.
Beat for a few minutes until the mixture is thick and shiny. Add salt and flavor extracts while beating. Add melted CBD-infused butter right before you’re done and continue to mix until well distributed.
Turn off the mixer and stir in almonds with a spoon. Quickly spoon out mixture onto the rice wafer paper and spread into an even layer with a spatula or butter knife. Put another layer of rice wafer paper on top.
Place another pan of the same size on top of the rice wafer paper so it’s pressing down evenly. Put a heavy object like a book or stockpot on top of it.
Let sit for about three hours until cool.
Remove the pan that’s covering the torrone. With a greased knife, cut the torrone into rectangles. Wrap in wax paper and keep in a sealed container at room temperature for up to two weeks.
If you don’t have or can’t find rice wafer paper, make sure you grease your pan very well and also grease the pan you place on top of your torrone. Wrap with wax paper as normal.
For an alternative flavor, try adding ½ tsp of orange blossom water or orange extract.
