How to Make Weed Brownies (+ Key Tips to Know)

Weed brownies are a staple of weed culture. For many young people, it’s one of the ways they get into the cannabis world. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get the recipe wrong and end up undergoing it or overdoing it. The right tips will make all the difference, so this post is going to teach you how to make weed brownies with key tips on how to do it right so you get the best experience. 

Key Tips For Making Your Own Weed Brownies

  1. Choose which fat or distillate you want to work with

To make brownies “special” you need to infuse them with cannabis. This doesn’t mean just throwing the flower in the batter, but rather infusing the butter or oil with cannabis. There are plenty of recipes online for how to do this and it’s pretty straightforward. You can make your brownies stronger by using THC distillate, cannabutter, or a mix of cannabis-infused fat and regular butter.  We recommend THC distillate only for those who are already experienced since it’s more potent and will also give your brownies a stronger “weed” taste, for better or for worse.

  1. Define whether you want to cook from scratch or go for the box

Select a recipe that you like (or use ours below) and bake your brownies from scratch. This option is great if you have time on your hands, want control over ingredients, have gluten sensitivities, etc. You can also go for the box if you want an easy, beginner-friendly option that involves some DIY, but doesn’t get your hands too dirty.

  1. Bake and Eat With Caution

Bake your brownies according to the instructions using your cannabutter or infused oil of choice. Wait for them to cool and portion out. Once you’ve chosen how much you’d like to eat, wait 1-2 hours before eating more because the effects will continue to increase over time until you peak.

  1. Store leftovers with care

Once you’re ready to store your brownies (if you have any left) make sure you do it appropriately. Storing edibles will make or break their usability later so ensure you look for a good container, keep gummies, candies, and chocolate in a cabinet where it will stay cool or in a freezer if you want them to keep for longer.

DIY Marijuana Brownie Recipe with Espresso and Nuts

Lots of weed brownie recipes go hard on the cannabis and weak on the brownies, but not this one. This will be not just a great weed experience, but also a delicious treat.


  • 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • ¾ cup butter, melted
  • 8 teaspoons (38 g) cannabutter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 16 mini peanut butter cups
  • 10 mini sea salt caramels
  • 1 cup toasted pecans, slightly crushed


  1. Melt the chocolate, butters, and espresso; stir thoroughly and set aside to cool. 
  2. Beat the sugars, egg, and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add the chocolate mixture and put aside. 
  3. After sifting the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt, stir them into the batter until the dry ingredient is completely incorporated. 
  4. Spoon one-third of the batter into an 8-by-8-inch square pan that has been coated with parchment and oiled.
  5. Partition the peanut butter cups equally, then top with a third of the batter and top with the caramels. 
  6. Add the pecans and remaining batter on top. 
  7. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the brownie for 40 to 45 minutes, or until it pulls away slightly from the pan’s sides and a tester comes out mainly clean and dry. 
  8. For at least an hour, let cool.
