Baking a Fool of Myself: No Frownie Brownie

Photos by Maria ColesisPhotos by Maria ColesisNext up on my cannabis culinary hit parade is the time-honored tradition of the marijuana brownie.

Who wants to deal with anaphylactic shock syndrome whilst super-high on brownies? Not me. That’s why I replace the popular additive of nuts with finely ground dark french coffee beans. Dark coffee and dark chocolate are bright lights in my mouth.

Throw in some of BC’s finest and I dare say we have a winner. The coffee also acts as a nice stimulant to counter the sedating effects of the marijuana. Like the popular heroin and cocaine speed-ball combination, only way better for you.

Top this mouth-watering liquid/solid loveliness (a perfect brownie looks part liquid and part solid, if done just right) with Marijuana Brandy Whip Cream. Your going to have to start your brandy a couple of weeks before if you don’t keep some on hand at all times like I do.

After you eat this delicious brownie and get the munchies, try not to eat more delicious brownie or you’ll wind up eating even more delicious brownie. Oh the delicious vicious cycle!
