Cannabis-Infused Salted Caramel Fudge Brownies

Editor's Note: This recipe has been modified from the version developed by Anya Von Bremzen to include cannabis-infused butter in addition to regular butter. These incredible brownies are filled with a layer of gooey salted caramel which can be made two weeks in advance. Note: As cannabis regulation continues to evolve across the United States and around the world, please consult your local laws.

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons flaky sea salt


  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons Premium Cannabutter

  • 10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 3 large eggs, chilled

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


Make the caramel

  1. In a medium saucepan, cook the sugar with the water over moderate heat, swirling the pan frequently, until a dark amber caramel forms. Slowly drizzle in the cream, then whisk in the butter and sea salt. Transfer the caramel to a small bowl and refrigerate until thickened, about 2 hours.

Make the brownies

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. Lightly butter a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan. Melt 14 tablespoons of butter, plus 2 tablespoons cannabutter in a heatproof medium bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water. Add the chopped chocolate, the sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt and stir until smooth. Remove the bowl from the heat and whisk in the eggs. Add the flour and stir until just incorporated. Line baking pan with parchment. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake the brownies for about 40 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Transfer the pan to a rack and let cool completely.

  2. Invert the brownies onto a cutting board and cut in half to form 2 rectangles. Spread the chilled caramel over 1 rectangle, then top with the other rectangle. Cut into 12 bars and serve immediately

Each serving contains about 7.6 mg THC based on the Premium Cannabutter recipe and a 20% THC strain of cannabis. The psychoactive effects of THC can take 30 to 90 minutes depending on tolerance, though most people should not consume more than 10 mg at a time.

This recipe comes from Kitchen Toke, the first media company dedicated to teaching people about culinary cannabis for health and wellness.
