How to make weed crackers

Are you jonesin’ for a tasty edible treat that’s easy to whip up with only a few ingredients required? Look no further than “The Firecracker,” a cannabis confection that’s been popular for eons. This infused treat is yummy, potent, and pretty much anyone can make it — even if you lack serious skills in the kitchen. But while these mini peanut butter sandwiches are one of the easiest edibles to tackle, there are a few key steps you won’t want to miss.

Light Your Fire

For any successful edible, your weed must be ‘lit up’ to activate the THC content. This process is called decarboxylation, but simply put, it’s baking your bud to get you baked.

There are many ways to decarb your weed for edibles, but here’s the most foolproof method.

For one firecracker serving, you’ll need anywhere from a half gram to two grams of high quality weed, depending on how high you wanna get. If you’re prepping for a party, multiply that amount of bud times the amount of crackers you plan to serve.

Lightly break up your flower by hand or coarsely grind it onto a baking sheet covered with foil or parchment paper. Then bake your bud for 15 minutes at 250° F.

Once complete, remove the bud from the oven and set it aside to cool. Don’t overbake your bud, or you’ll waste your weed.

Heads-up: if you’re close to neighbors or cooking on the down-low, this process will smell! Plan accordingly.

Gather Supplies

With this recipe, the flower bonds with the fat content in the peanut butter, eliminating many of the steps necessary for other edible recipes. So go for ingredients higher in fat to intensify your firecracker experience.

  • Graham Crackers: Try honey, cinnamon or chocolate versions to mix it up
  • Peanut Butter: Try natural or use Nutella… or twist it up with both!
  • Toothpick
  • Foil

Get Crackin’

Adjust your oven to 300° F for baking the firecrackers. To assemble, grab one graham cracker sheet and break it in half, so you have two squares. Spread a generous layer of peanut butter (or Nutella) on one side of each cracker. The peanut butter will absorb the THC — so the more the better!

Next, evenly spread the baked weed over your peanut-butter covered crackers. Use the toothpick to stir and mix the marijuana into the peanut butter.

Sandwich your two crackers on top of one another, and your firecracker is almost ready for take-off.

Get Baked

You might be tempted to bite into your cracker concoction now, but don’t. It gets better once it’s baked. Wrap your firecracker in tin foil. Don’t skip this step, as it locks in the treat’s THC while baking.

On a baking sheet, heat your individually wrapped firecracker at 300° F for 20 minutes. Once the buzzer goes off, let your firecrackers completely cool.

You can also mix it up with your own additions too. Add marshmallow, caramel, or chocolate chips. Even drizzle honey or syrup on top for an extra sugary shock.

Last step? Dig in and get lit. But like any edible, consume with caution. Wait at least 45 minutes to an hour for effects to set in before indulging in another firecracker.

This infused treat is delicious, potent, and pretty much anyone can make it — even if you lack serious skills in the canna-kitchen.

This Peanut Butter and Graham Cracker Snack Is the Perfect Edible

Firecrackers: the Easy Mac of edibles.

Whether you’re unable to rip the bong due to your sore throat (or minor case of pneumonia) or headed on any sort of bus/train/car trip that will last more than two hours, this is definitely a time and place for edibles. You could hit up your dealer for brownies or a dispensary for the real stuff if you live in a state which permits you to do so, but not all of us are so lucky.

While a recent article in Well and Good referred to cannabis as potentially the next new superfood to be added to gourmet recipes, we know that we are college students on a budget. While it would be a dream to get high off butternut squash soup or a gluten-free cake, I know many college students that would eat a moldy sandwich off the floor if it was packed with a gram or two.

If you’re looking for an amateur, easy way to get stupid high, pass out and wake up still high, look no further than the firecracker. For a live demonstration, watch the Wisdom Teeth episode of Broad City. You won’t be sorry.

#SpoonTip: This recipe calls for weed but I used oregano because WEED IS ILLEGAL IN MOST STATES. If you live in Colorado, Washington, Oregon or Alaska, feel free to substitute weed. Don’t do drugs, kids. Unless they’re legal.

For variety, substitute Nutella for the peanut butter or switch the graham crackers out for saltines. Remember to give the firecracker time to sink in before you freak out and eat too many (trust me). Eat responsibly!

    After grinding it as finely as possible, sprinkle weed onto the peanut butter on top of four out of the eight crackers. Try to keep it in an even layer towards the center of the cracker. Distribute an even amount of weed on each cracker (each cracker =

    .25g or 1/4 of how much weed you are using).
