An easy recipe that ensures intense effects with bioavailable THC.
For 4/20 this year, celebrate with this hash-infused version of a classic confection. While rice crispy treats are a popular, commonly medicated snack, we’ve added a THC booster in the form of lecithin powder, which allows the body to more readily absorb cannabinoids. These Chronic Krispie treats will feel more potent in your body, so be sure to eat only a small piece and wait two hours before consuming any more cannabis food!
While you’re at it, make a regular batch of these gooey cereal bars to munch on without worrying about getting overwhelmingly high—you’re going to need a lot of snacks for 4/20 fun!
- 5 tbsp coconut oil or margarine (1/3 cup)
- 2 grams cannabis concentrate (can be mid-to-low grade for edible purposes, about 60 percent THC or better)
- 1 tbsp sunflower lecithin powder or granules (optional, to increase bioavailability of cannabinoids)
- 42 regular marshmallows, or 420 mini marshmallows (about 4 1/5 cups mini marshmallows)
- 6 cups favorite puffed rice cereal
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 8”x8” parchment lined pan
- Rubber spatula
- Parchment paper (optional)
Melt coconut oil to a stable 250°F, using a smaller pan with a lid (recommended to achieve a steady 250°F) with a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature. If using a gas burner, a double-boiler and oil bath method is recommended to achieve the needed 250°F temperature stability of the coconut oil.
Melt 2 grams of cannabis concentrate into the coconut oil. Decarboxylate for 20 minutes at a stable 250°F (letting the mixture heat for a longer amount of time will result in a more sedative, “couch-lock” effect, conversely a lesser amount of time or heat will not activate the THC enough to be noticeably experienced).
Add the 1 tbsp sunflower lecithin (if using to increase bioavailability of THC) and the 1/2 tsp salt, whisking thoroughly to dissolve granules completely. Set infused coconut oil and lecithin mixture aside.
In a large pot over medium-low heat, around 125 to 150°F, melt marshmallows gradually with 2 tablespoons of water.
Stirring slowly and continually, incorporate the infused-coconut oil mixture into the melted marshmallows, being careful to keep the temperature below 175°F, to avoid further decarboxylation of the cannabis oil.
Mix your cereal into the pot gradually, to incorporate the cereal evenly throughout the marshmallow-cannabis-oil mixture.
Use a rubber spatula to transfer the Krispie mixture into 8″x8” pan that has been lined with parchment paper, or thoroughly greased. Press into pan with parchment paper or greased spatula and flatten evenly. Cool for 1 hour or more.
Cut with a well-greased knife into nine rectangles. Makes nine 3”x 3” servings. If cannabis concentrate used contains approximately 60 percent THC, each square will have about 133 mg activated THC.
Enjoy and share the classic sticky, gooey goodness! Have a very happy 4/20!
