Most people who smoke marijuana enjoy a bowl of cereal… or two… or three, and what’s better than combining these two? Combining crunch, sweetness, and a powerful punch, marijuana Rice Krispie treats can be one of the most enjoyable ways to enjoy cannabis. Edibles are especially useful for people who need the medicinal benefits of marijuana but prefer not to smoke it. Even if you do enjoy smoking cannabis, THC Rice Krispie treats are a good occasional alternative.
As innocuous it may seem, keep in mind that like all edible cannabis products, THC Rice Krispie treats can be extremely potent. Its effects can also last a long time, and it can be very overwhelming for novices who are partaking for the first time. If you aren’t used to edibles, it is a good idea to go easy and take only a little at a time. If you don’t feel anything after an hour, you can take a few more bites, but not much more than that. As you get used to edibles, you will be able to figure out how much is enough.
Marijuana Treat Ingredients
- Half a cup of marijuana butter
- Four cups of marshmallows
- Five cups of Rice Krispies (you can substitute any type of cereal)
The first step is to make the marijuana butter. Because you will need half a cup of butter, you should start with a little more than that amount in order to allow for evaporation. First, melt the butter at your stove’s lowest heat setting. Once the butter is melted, gradually mix in finely ground marijuana. Simmer the mixture for ten minutes, stirring gently from time to time.
The next step is to add the marshmallows and blend the mixture together until the marshmallows are all melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove the mixture from the heat and mix in the cereal, making sure it’s coated evenly.
Finally, scoop the mixture onto a buttered pan and let the mixture cool completely. When cool, you can cut the cereal into 2-inch (or whatever size desired) squares. Enjoy!
Remember that you can use any cereal you prefer, and feel free to experiment by adding nuts, chocolate chips, and any other treats you like. You can enjoy these THC treats with a glass of milk, some coffee, tea, or any other beverage you prefer.
Keep in mind to take it easy the first time, and eat only a square (or a few bites) at a time. After you have a better idea of the effect of one square, you can increase the dose accordingly next time.
How to Cut Down Cooking Time
Marijuana Rice Krispie treats can take about half an hour to 45 minutes to prepare, but you can reduce the preparation time considerably by making the cannabis butter beforehand. In fact, cannabis butter can be used for many different recipes, so it would be a good idea to have some handy at all times. Make sure to infuse the marijuana thoroughly into the butter and strain it carefully and it should last for several days.
