Looking to whip up a weed edible that takes the least amount of time and effort possible? Look no further than the humble firecracker, quite possibly the simplest cannabis treat you can make. Learning how to make firecrackers is easy, and for the most part foolproof. But there are some things to keep in mind to make sure the firecrackers weed doesn’t burn up, leaving you with a worthless, if tasty, snack.

Here’s How to Make Firecrackers

Let’s start with what you need to pull off an amazing firecracker recipe.

First, you’ll need some high-quality flower. If you’re making firecrackers just for yourself, about a half gram (0.5 g) should do. Use more if you’re planning to make enough to share.

Next, you need your graham crackers. Nabisco or HoneyMaid work best due to their higher fat content. Spice things up with the cinnamon version!

Finally, you need peanut butter. Go for the natural stuff with the higher amounts of fat. The higher (the fat), the better! Nutella also works well in combination with the peanut butter or on its own.

That’s why firecrackers are so simple to make. The firecrackers weed easily bonds to the fats in the peanut butter, eliminating many of the steps needed to make other weed edibles.

And don’t forget the tools: a toothpick for stirring, aluminum foil for baking, and an oven with an accurate temperature control. Toaster ovens work well, especially the digital kind.

Don’t Forget To Decarboxylate Your Firecrackers Weed!

In order for this firecrackers weed recipe to work, you have to activate the THC and other cannabinoids in your buds before you eat them. That means using heat to decarboxylate your cannabis.

For the first-timer, figuring out how to make firecrackers weed decarboxylated can be a little challenging. But really, the process is simple. Just remember, low and slow.

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F (120 C) and wait about 10 minutes for it to get warm. While you’re waiting, break up your nugs by hand or coarsely grind them.

Next, put the weed in the oven. Set a timer for about 15 minutes. That’s plenty of time for a decarb, so don’t go any longer. Heating too long can ruin your weed.

After 15 minutes, set your weed to the side and let cool.

Assemble Your Weed Firecrackers

Now, heat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 C). As it gets to temp, spread a thick layer of peanut butter (and/or Nutella) on one side of each graham cracker.

Pro Tip: the fat in the peanut butter is what absorbs the THC from your weed, so the more fat the better. That’s why you should really spread it on thick.

Now, evenly sprinkle your weed on the peanut butter-covered crackers. Now’s the time to use that toothpick to stir and fold your weed into the peanut butter.

Mix your weed in very thoroughly, so that all of it is covered with fatty peanut butter. Don’t rush this step.

To finish assembling your firecrackers, add a second peanut butter and covered cracker on top and sandwich them together.

Get Baking! Here’s How To Make Firecrackers …the Right Way

At this point, lots of people will simply toss the firecracker into the oven and bake it. But that’s not the best approach.

Instead, wrap your firecrackers in foil. Wrap them up completely, like you would if you were cooking something over a campfire. This will lock all the good stuff in and make sure no THC escapes!

Now, go ahead and put your foil wrapped firecracker into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. The perfect amount of time to enjoy an episode of “Broad City” while you wait.

Cool Down, Then Chow Down!

This last part is the best. Giver your firecrackers time to cool down and remove them from their foil wrappers.

Smells delicious, right? Of course it does, it’s weed and peanut butter (and maybe cinnamon and chocolate).

Finally, eat your firecracker! They’re so good, it’s easy to get carried away and eat the whole batch. But make sure you wait at least a half hour to 45 minutes to see how all that firecrackers weed is hitting you before diving into another.

Bon appétit!

    I’ve found that you can make these without decarbing first. 300° For 20 mins decarbs it at the same time. I’ve done it both ways and I get the same effects…maybe even a little better with fresh ground flower. Thoughts?

    I tried this with half a gram split between two sandwiches and it was more than enough for me. Half a gram is a lot for people who don’t normally have edibles.
