- Prep: 3 hrs
- Cook: 20 mins
- Yields: 12 Servings
1Grind the cannabis to a course meal and then decarboxylate the cannabis by placing it on a baking sheet covered with foil or parchment paper and bake in the oven for 2 hours at 220 Degrees Fahrenheit.
2Infuse the cannabis into the coconut oil over a double boiler for an hour. Then strain out the plant material with a fine mesh screen or cheesecloth. Proceed while the oil is still warm.
3Mix the warm infused coconut oil and the chocolate hazelnut spread in a mixing bowl. Blend well then put back on the double boiler.
4If using whole bean coffee grind it to the finest grind you can. Mix in the ground coffee beans well. Let the mixture warm and steep on the double boiler for a few minutes.
5Pour the mixture into a refrigerator safe container with a lid and let it cool and thicken before using.
You can use refined coconut oil if you do not want to taste coconut, or unrefined if you enjoy the coconut taste as it can be complementary to this recipe.
The coffee is optional. Espresso grind blends well and will dissolve away the grit after 12 hours or so. You can infuse the coffee in the same step as the cannabis infusion and filter out the ground coffee along with the plant material for a smoother recipe.
