Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies With Brown Butter


1 stick unsalted butter
¾ cup brown sugar (packed)
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 1/8 cups flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp plain Greek yogurt
1 Kiva Confections chocolate bar (milk or dark chocolate is best)
½ cup semisweet chocolate chip cookies
Sea salt to garnish


Small saucepan
Electric mixer (or hand whisk)
2 large mixing bowls
Baking sheet
Parchment paper

For the brown butter:

Dice your stick of butter and place into the saucepan on medium heat. As it melts, whisk continuously. The butter will foam, then begin to darken and give off a nutty aroma. When this happens, turn off the heat. Continue whisking for another minute, then place aside to cool.

For the brown butter chocolate chip cannabis cookies:

Using an electric mixer, combine the brown butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Once the mixture is smooth, add the egg, vanilla extract, and yogurt.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, then use the electric mixer to beat them together on low speed until smooth.

Chop the Kiva Confections chocolate bar into small chunks. Fold the cannabis-infused chocolate chunks into your mixture along with the semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll the dough into 15 balls that are equal in size and place them on the sheet, making sure to space them evenly. Chill them in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350F and place the chilled tray in to bake. Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt and let cool.

Our Tips for Making Delicious Weed-Infused Chocolate Chip Cookies

A few tips for infusing cannabis into your brown butter chocolate chip cookies:

  • The cookies will continue to bake even after they’re removed from the oven, so take them out when the edges are crispy and the center is still gooey for best results.
  • Browning homemade cannabutter in place of regular butter will intensify the cannabis taste. Keep the THC concentration in mind when using homemade cannabutter—doses can be quite high.
  • For a mild cannabis taste and a high dose of THC, change out the granulated sugar for weed-infused Source Farms sugar.
  • While you could swap out the semi-sweet chocolate chips for more cannabis chocolate, we don’t recommend it. The bitterness of semi-sweet chocolate balances the cookie’s overall flavor profile.
