When I first posted this recipe, I must have been ripped as hell. I was yammering on about Mayans and Pan-Europeans and cracker-ass-crackers… and it didn’t make any sense at all. Not in the slightest.
Well, folks… Now I’m re-writing it… and again, I’m ripped as hell. So I’m not making any promises about quality improvement. Or sense making ability. What I will promise, is that this Pot Cocoa is the shit.
It’s been awhile since I’ve made it, since this is a rewrite and all, but I remember that it was Hot Cocoa that had marijuana in it. And when I tasted it, the green light over my dome went off and thought “this recipe pun writes itself”.
So make it. Write something down. Make it again. And go back to that thing you already wrote down. Say, “screw that shit. I can do better.” And then prove yourself wrong.
3/4 Cup Nut Milk or Milk
1T High Quality Cocoa Powder
1 T Sugar or Honey
1t- 1T Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil or Butter
And all together now (for your copying and pasting pleasure)…
3/4 Cup Nut Milk or Milk
1T High Quality Cocoa Powder
1 T Sugar or Honey
1t- 1T Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil or Butter
1. Mix Cocoa + Sugar in a mug.
2. Combine Cannabis Oil or Butter and Nut Milk or Milk.
3. Heat over medium until oil is melted and milk is hot (do not boil).

4. Add Cocoa Mix to Hot Milk Mixture.
5. Whisk until frothy and creamy. Add more sweetener or cocoa to taste.
6. Serve immediately. Stir occasionally to keep the oil from separating.

If you ever want to impress someone, bust out some homemade cinnamon rolls. If you ever want to impress someone, and have them forget all about it in a few minutes, bust out these Cinnamon Rollies.
The first time I made these tightly rolled cannabis infused cinnamon rolls, it was last November. We’d just moved to our new spot near Durango and we were trying our damndest to settle in. It’s the most ridiculous place I’ve ever lived in: a huge kitchen, fireplaces, a shit ton of windows, and hella acreage, and a sweet garden area in the back yard. While it was nice to know that we’d have a place to eat, live and sleep in, it was hard to believe that we really had a home.
Since the farmer and I had been together, we’d moved from Colorado’s oldest commune, to a yurt at an uptight B&B, to homeless in a Subaru BRAT, to a tent in the jungle, to a farm on Kauai, to a tent at a just-forming commune, to a quirky housesit where one of the bathroom doors was a projector screen, and back to homeless. In over a year-and-a-half, we hadn’t had the need for many material objects or any furniture.
The first couple of weeks that we lived here, we slept on camping pads, made bookshelves out of boxes, and filled each of the cabinets with something to make it seem like we lived here. Still, we’d wake up every morning feeling like squatters on an abandoned ranch. After awhile, we started to score items (I found a super sweet rototiller at a moving sale and they threw in a recliner for free), and it started sinking in that we’d actually be here for awhile.
But it wasn’t until our first Wake & Bake Test Kitchen Weekend that this house started feeling like a home. The book designer came over from denver. A few old friends from my Fargo days stopped in. And the house seemed warmer and full of life.
It all started with these Chronic Cinnamon Rollies… They were the first recipe developed in our new crib, and they fueled an amazing work party and an awesome afternoon nap.
They’re warm, spiced, not too sweet (if you want a sweeter roll, add more icing), and they make your house smell like a home… but not like just any home… like a home where people bake their own stellar, digestively progressive, weed food to settle into their new home kind of home… And isn’t that the kind of home we all want to live in?

You know what they say,
“Delete an entire website once, shame on you. Delete an entire website once, wait… Why didn’t you back that shit up?”
For those of you who are familiar with Wake & Bake: a blog, you know that there used to several helpful posts about cooking with cannabis… Until I accidentally deleted the whole damn thing without ever backing it up. So now, I’m back to share the one tutorial that’s completely essential in learning how to have your very own homemade-edibles-throw-down:
The Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil Tutorial
This cannabis oil tutorial is the easiest on the planet. Well, it’s the second easiest on the planet. This is an updated version of the Green Monsta tutorial that was in the first edition of Wake & Bake. This tutorial includes a section about decarboxylation and recommends the use of Sunflower lecithin, because I’m fully convinced that it’s the way to go. Don’t let the tech-y “D” word fool you though. Decarboxylation is as easy as pie… cannabis infused pie. Which you will be able to make using this infused coconut oil.
I also recommend that you try to infuse your oil at 160°. Why? Because we’re trying to keep terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids in tact. Since you’ve already Decarbactivated your cannabis, that temperature is sufficient for infusing all of the canna-goodness into your coconut oil. You can do this by using a thermometer and checking your crock pot regularly to make sure it doesn’t get too hot. I’ll be experimenting with making it in the oven and will update this post if that proves to be useful.
Fun fact: I now use a Magical Butter for making all of my oils because it’s easy and temp controlled. If you make oil more than a few times a year or if it’s your only method of consuming marijuana, I’d highly highly highly recommend it. It’s an amazing machine that turns your kitchen into an edibles discotheque (read: it does this really colorful blinking extravaganza while making your oil).
A couple of tips for beginners:
- Try to use organic shake or trim whenever possible.
- I made some monster batches and teeny batches when I was making Wake & Bake: a cookbook. You can make smaller or larger batches than the one below by using a 1:1 ratio, making sure to use enough coconut oil to cover the weed completely.
- If your oil ever begins to smoke, remove from heat immediately and let it cool a bit before beginning the process again with your crockpot on the lowest setting. If possible, get a thermometer up in there and try to keep it around 160°.
- If you don’t have a crockpot, you can make the oil in a double boiler on the stove. Just follow the same instructions, use a thermometer and keep it around 160°.
- You don’t have to finely grind up the cannabis ( I think it makes it harder to strain, and doesn’t improve flavor or potency), but break it up a bit before you decarboxylate so you can fit more in your oil.
- Have fun! Don’t fret over your canna-oil when it’s in the pot. People on the internet make this much more complicated then it has to be. This is a simple process and it should be enjoyable, not stressful.
- Always decarboxylate your marijuana and add sunflower lecithin if possible. Click on the links for more information.
- Test your dosage before using in recipes. Don’t know how much to use? Find out how to calculate your dosage.
FYI… Wake & Bake: a cookbook (the Second Edition) is now ON SALE in Hardcover , Softcover and Digital Download. It’s the perfect gift for your friends or that one stoner aunt in the family.
Before you Begin
1.Preheat your oven to 250°.
2. On a pyrex dish or baking sheet, spread your trim out in a thin layer. Cover.
3. Bake for 1 hr.
Making the Oil
1. In a crockpot on low/warm, melt:
1 Cup Coconut Oil
1 Cup (about 7-14 grams) Decarboxylated Organic
Cannabis Trim, Shake or Buds (broken up a bit)
1 t Sunflower Lecithin (optional but recommended)
Stir every half hour or so checking the temperature to make sure it stays around 160°. After 2-3 hours of heating and steeping, turn off the crockpot and allow the oil to cool before moving onto the next step.
3. Set up your strainer so it fits snugly in a container. Line with a large piece of cheesecloth.
5. Using a string or twist tie, gather the cheesecloth around the plant matter and secure.
6. Squeeeeeeze that sh*t.Save this satchel to make High Chai.
7. Pour oil into a pint jar and place in the fridge until cool. Seal with a lid. Store in refrigerator or in a cool, dark place.
If you don’t know how much to take, check out this post on dosage to help figure out where to start and what works for you.
Let me know if you have any other questions! I’d love to hear from you.

Sorry everyone! After I posted that sweet Snickerdoodles recipe this morning, and after I shared it with everyone, I went and accidentally deleted the entire Wake & Bake website.
Yes. I did that.
No. I was not baked.
It would have been more understandable if I was. The website is back up and running, but I lost all of the content from the newly founded Wake & Bake blog. It was a bummer, and I’m sorry about pushing a Snickerdoodle recipe on you and then pulling it out from underneath you ten minutes later.
So, while I don’t have the original post, I’m going to try and recreate it. Right here. Right now. It’ll be something like Tribute, by Jack Black.
This is not, the greatest post in the wo-orld.
This is just a tribute.
I crashed the site that held the greatest post in the wo-orld.
And this is a tri-ibu-uuute.
So, last night (pre-disaster), I talked to Larry Love on the entertaining and informative Medical Marijuana Radio. That guy is fan.tastic. He asked me for my favorite cannabis cookie recipe, and radio listeners around the globe got to listen to crickets chirp, and hear me mumble things about how hard it is to pick that kind of thing, until finally… I flipped through the book and landed on the infamous Snickerdoodle.
It’s my go-to when I’m baking with cannabis or without cannabis. What can I say? I was conceived, gestated and raised in the midwest where the Snickerdoodle is king… then I moved to Colorado and started putting weed in my food.
The Joy of Cooking (via Wikipedia) claims the word Snickerdoodle came from the bastardization of the German word Schneckennudeln, meaning “snail noodles.”
And doesn’t that shit sound appetizing?
Well, we’ve skipped the snails and added the giggles to these “Special” Snickerdoodles. Enjoy!
(The Green Monsta Oil is a cannabis infused coconut oil that I’ll be reposting soon. Until then, you can substitute any infused oil or butter)
