Christmas is just around the corner, and while we’re all excited, it’s okay to think the holidays are kind of stressful. From shopping for last-minute gifts, making time for family and friends, and arranging travel plans to visit some Uncle you haven’t seen since last December, it can become overwhelming. However, a little bit of baking and (a lot a bit of) cannabis can always calm everything down.
Edibles are the perfect way to take the stress off all the holiday buzz. They’re discreet, tasty, make great gifts, and are easy to make once you get the hang of it. What cannabis-based company would Emjay be if we didn’t curate a selection of our favorite edibles for you to make on Christmas? Here are our top three edibles to make just for you.
The most classic thing you can do around Christmas is bake and decorate cookies. With this recipe, we made it super low-stakes for you. Instead of a full cookie edible, we swapped in regular sugar cookies and cannabis-infused icing.
TLDR; any cookie you don’t decorate with the icing is fair game when the munchies hit. And boy, will they hit with this magic icing.
For the higher-brow type of stoner parties, eggnog just seems like the way to go. Imagine your standing around a table of holiday appetizers with your glass of cannabis-infused nog while someone talks to you about cryptocurrency. This nog will allow you to let out tiny little laughs in between the tech-jargen and enjoy your tasty drink. It’s you and the nog. It’s always been you and the nog.
Arguably the coolest recipe out of all of the three, the cannabis-infused hot chocolate on a stick is exactly what it sounds like. You stir these premade chocolate sticks into your favorite warmed-up milk, and boom: you have hot chocolate. You could think of it as a small science experiment and watch the chocolate slowly melt away. Who knows, maybe you’ll melt away with it.
Whether you’re a holiday-crazed person or just like a nice winter treat, all three of these edibles will knock it out of the park. Make sure you give yourself enough time to decarboxylate your cannabis if you haven’t done so already. That way, when you’re ready to make these, you’ll be able to whip these up faster than you can name all 12 of Santa’s reindeer. I’ll give you the first two: Dasher and Dancer.
