A dinner date is one of the best ways to spend time with your significant other – it gives you a chance to relax, sit down and enjoy a meal together. Couples can bond easier over a meal, in a calm atmosphere where they can speak freely – so choosing to stay home and cook for your loved one is always a winning date night idea.
For those couples who happen to love cannabis too, infusing part of your meal with cannabis to give the night a heightened relaxation and euphoric feeling is a great treat. Here are three great ideas for cannabis infused desserts that are sure to impress your dinner date.
This chocolate mousse takes roughly 20 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook – so expect 40-45 minutes in total from start to finish. All you need is 4 large egg yolks, 4TBS cannabis infused honey, 2 cups CannaMilk, 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate (melted), and 1TSP of pure vanilla extract. It might sound intimidating, but it is incredibly simple to make if you can get the ingredients.
Pecan bars are a great alternative for anyone who love pecan pie – and it only takes about 10 minutes to prep, and 25 minutes to bake. However, be prepared to allow these bars to sit in the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours – though overnight is preferred. This recipe uses refrigerated cannabutter for the THC kick and it is the kind of recipe that benefits from being made well in advance.
Just like the chocolate mousse, we know that chocolate truffles are almost always a winner when it comes to romantic desserts. These cannabis infused truffles take roughly 25 minutes to make and most of that is prep time. Like the pecan bars these truffles do need to chill in the fridge before serving, however they only require about 3 hours – or until firm enough to scoop the chocolate mixture into balls to be coated in coco powder or melted chocolate. If you choose the melted chocolate route, estimate another 30 minutes to an hour for the chocolate shell to harden properly.
