Easy Bake – Pot Brownies in the Microwave
I’ve always been a little dubious about the power of eating pot. In most cases, I have failed to do a controlled experiment because I always end up smoking at the same time as I’m eating. Now, this weekend, I had a sore throat and felt like I shouldn’t be smoking, so I had the perfect opportunity to give this a whirl.
Usually when I’m baking brownies, it would be a social affair, so I’d make a big pan. But this weekend, it was just me. That’s a lot of pot to reach the right level of potency in one or two brownies. And let’s be honest, if there’s a whole pan – when the munchies kick in, I’ll end up eating the whole thing anyway.
So along comes ‘Warm Delights’ the portion control dessert product pitched for single professional ladies. This is a really exciting breakthrough in pot browies for the same two reasons this appeals to the single gals: 1) it’s wicked easy and very quick 2) portion control means you’re economizing on the pot.
Here’s how you can bake the perfect pot brownies for one or two people:
1) Crumble or chop the weed into a saucepan and cook with about a tablespoon of butter or veg. oil (butter is better). You want to sautee it on very low heat until it releases that distinctive odor and turns light brown and is crispy to the touch (watch your fingers!). Keep stirring the pot pot – DO NOT BURN IT!
2) Empty the mix into the plastic bowl they include. Pour the hot butter over the mountain of chocolate powder and start to mix it in with a spoon. It will be very thick. You will need to add a little water at a time until it mixes into a smooth batter (like the traditional brownie mix you know and love).
3) Microwave for just 45 seconds. Ah sweet sweet technology. No pre-heating. No waiting. And voila!
4) Then you can fancy it up by squeezing on the chocolate frosting.
6) Wait 20-30 minutes and SURPRISE you’re easy baked!
I just stumbled on this post several years after forgetting about the blog entirely. I am happy it is still up on the web. But I’m shocked to realize this particular post has over 30,000 views – not to mention a whole lot of really helpful comments. If even a small percentage of you people who have viewed this page get yourselves Easy Baked as a result, I’m so happy to have helped.
A few of my own opinions in response to the comments:
For me, the dosage in a brownie is about the same as I would smoke to get the result I want. If the weed is really potent, I use less, like a bowl. You can see the size nodule I used in the top picture. That’s about a gram of potent weed, and the brownie was a very strong high.
If I’m using outdoor weed of the sort I’d probably smoke most of a joint over an evening – I use that much. I don’t want to eat more than one brownie in an evening. I might start with half and eat the other half later.
Baking is like science, you can keep track of how much you use and how long things take in your microwave. Next time, vary your inputs. From my experience, my digestive fullness has a big influence on how quickly I metabolize the weed. If I eat a brownie on a relatively empty stomach, it kicks in much faster and has a bigger impact. So even though you might be tempted to save the brownie for dessert. you’d be better off starting with it.
I recommend cooking your weed a bit in butter or oil. Don’t skip that step. That’s the slow controlled heating when you’re going to activate the psychoactive junk. The quick heating in the microwave acts primarily on the water molecules. Steam bubbles in the batter and cooks the cake. The quick microwave blast doesn’t cover you for activating the cannabis.
Eating is preferable to smoking in a lot of situations:
- For people with breathing problems
- On airplanes (finish before security)
- If you’re a teenager living in a city
- Family dinners
- Movies (so you’re not most high during the previews)

How to make marijuana brownie in just 5 minutes
It is one of the most classic desserts to make with cannabis, but that’s not why they are outdated. Today we give you a simple, easy-to-make pot brownie recipe and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about it.
I’ll confess one thing: Just seeing a chocolate brownie my mouth begins watering…and I can’t help it!?
Chocolate brownie is one of those desserts that goes well at any time of the day and, of course, if it’s well done, it is equally liked by children and adults, by the sweet tooths of sugar and by those who move more for the delicious flavor of cocoa; and of course, the brownie (with marijuana star ingredient) is one of the favorite desserts for marijuana lovers, because its simplicity in the combination of sweet chocolate with our universal medicine.
Thus, it is not surprising that this sweet of American origin is one of the classics among the recipes made with marijuana, and for this reason, today we want to give you one of the hundreds of versions that exist about it.
By the way, did you know that brownie came up by chance in 1987 because the cook forgot to pour yeast while preparing it? Blessed forgetfulness!
⭐ Marijuana Cooking Tips
All right. I had told you that I was going to give you the recipe for Marijuana Brownie, promised, I’ll do it soon, but before that, and if you think it’s okay, I think it’s not superfluous to remember some concepts or aspects to keep in mind, not only for this recipe, but whenever you’re going to cook with marijuana.
Maybe you already know, or maybe it’s the first time you’ve ever got your “hands on”. Whatever your case may be, I’m sure it never hurts to read the following tips for cooking with marijuana again:
–Be meticulous with the amounts of plant: There is not a recommended average dose per person, and the truth is that none of us react in the same way when using cannabis, and you know that the effect between smoking or eating it is very different, mainly because the former is much faster and less durable than the latter.
So, if it’s the first time you’re going to cook and consume it, or someone who’s going to share this brownie with you for the first time, it’s best to go little by little, both in its preparation and at the time of eating it, and wait to see what effect it produces. It usually takes about an hour to take effect, so if you’ve thought about smoking a joint during that time… big mistake!
I Recommend to start with a half gram of marijuana (20% THC) for every 20 g of Brownie if it is in bud form and 2 grams if you use the remains of the manicured buds, but do not use more.
Another thing you have to take into account, if you’re going to accompany this recipe with another one that also contains marijuana, let pass one or two hours between them.
-How to use marijuana: If what you want is that, in addition to eating a delicious brownie, enjoy the effect of cannabis, you have to take into account that for THC has an effect, whenever you mix it with food you will have to mix it and heat it with some fat; the most typical is usually butter, in fact, will be the fat that we use to make this recipe.
Previously, the buds and leaves of marijuana will have to be pulverized in a grinder, and collect the resin stuck with a little extra virgin olive oil, and then mix everything with butter and chocolate.
You can use a grinder to shred your marijuana.
-Control the temperature: The ideal temperature for cooking cannabis in the oven is always the lowest possible. It’s better to cook more slowly, in this way, the cannabis should not lose much of its cannabinoids and terpenes. Cook the Brownie in the oven at 120ºC for a minimum of one hour, until the dough is compact.
–No alcohol: okay, I know it doesn’t sound very good, but if smoked marijuana and alcohol aren’t good companions, they are less so when you eat. So, if you can avoid a bad trip, it would be better doing it.
And if you or one of your guests are in the mood, have a glass of wine and satisfy your desire.
-Be patient: As I’ve told you before, the effect takes a lot longer to reach, but when it does, it stays for a long time, so be patient, and wait for the high.
⛳ Recipe of marijuana brownie, step by step
And now, we’ll pass to the recipe of an easy chocolate brownie, step by step and in only 5 minutes. That is to say, the time it will take you to prepare it, later, of course, you will have to wait until it is cooked in the oven, but in the meantime… it occurs to me that you can go doing a thousand and one things, like preparing the lounge or the table where you and your friends are going to eat it.
You won’t even notice!
What ingredients do you need to make marijuana brownie?
Write these down for a brownie for 8 people:
- 100 grams of butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- Half a cup flour
- 200 grams of chocolate to melt, if possible, special for desserts
- 4 grams of marijuana (0.5 g per person)
Ingredients for making this cannabis brownie
Now that you’ve got everything, the next steps are as follows:
1-First we put the oven to heat to 120ºC (it won’t cost us anything to make the dough, so the ideal thing is to be ready to put our mixture as soon as we finish preparing it).

2-Next, heat a frying pan, to which we will add the butter and chocolate that we are going to mix little by little.

3-While this is being done, in a bowl, add the eggs, sugar, flour and stir. You can do it with a fork or, the easiest thing (even if it’s not, gastronomically speaking, the most professional thing) is to take the mixer and in half a second it’s all mixed without unpleasant lumps.

4-Finally, add the chocolate and marijuana that will have to be very well crushed and put it in the oven.. How long? It depends on how patient you are. At 120 degrees, in 60 minutes you have it. To check it out, just open the oven after that time, prick the brownie with the tip of a knife and if comes out clean, it’s ready.

What about the marijuana brownie smell while it’s being cooked in the oven? The truth is, yes, it smells pretty good. Maybe not as much as when you smoke it, but yes.
When you take it out, unless you’re in a hurry or want to eat it, the ideal thing is to wait for it to cool down a bit so that it doesn’t bad like a pump in your stomach, but if you feel like eating it inmediatly, you can also accompany it with an ice-cream ball, which will make the contrast your stomach needs.
You can accompany brownie with strawberries, as well as cream.
And… you just have to enjoy the trip! Ah! I forgot to tell you! If you want to make a nice presentation, add some almonds cut into small pieces or a little icing sugar. Everything to your taste! There are also people who add even more chocolate, whether in shavings or melted, even some fresh fruit (strawberry, for example, is great), as well as some cream.
✨ Effects of marijuana brownie
In this case, just like when you smoke a joint, it all depends on your physical and psychological state, your body weight, if you drink liquids, and also, of course, the amount of cannabis edibles you have ingested.
We recommend not to take marijuana edibles in case of taking any pharmacological treatment as rifampicin, carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin and St. John’s wort.
That’s why it’s recommended not to take more than one serving or, at least, not to take it until one or two hours have passed by and you’ve seen the effect it has on you. In fact, if it’s the first time you do it, try only one piece and once that time has elapsed, you decide whether or not you want to finish the portion. But remember that the effect always takes longer to reach than if you smoke it, but also lasts much longer.
Once this is explained, the effect also has a lot to do with the strain and quality of cannabis you have used.
For example, if you prepare brownie with an indica or hybrid cultivar with a high CBD content and caryophyllene diterpenes, the effects will be narcotic or relaxing.
On the other hand, if you use sativa marijuana with low CBD content and high monoterpenic composition, it is normal for you to become active or be more cheerful and happy.
So, what do you say? Would you like to try it? ??? The truth is that marijuana brownie is one of those recipes you always get it fine. That’s right, be careful not to put it within reach of children! Don’t be scared out of your mind.
Otherwise, you’ve already seen that it’s very easy to make, as the ingredients are basic, so much so that you don’t even have to go out to the supermarket for shopping, because you have everything at home, which always frees you from more than a trouble, and you don’t need to be a chef specialist. The effects are the same as if you smoked cannabis, only that they take longer to arrive and last longer.
