Best Pot Brownies: Martha Stewart’s “To-Die-For” Cannabis Brownie Recipe

March 23, 2016

Given that Martha Stewart is queen of all things domestic, her brownie recipes are go-to’s. And given that she has also baked brownies with Snoop Dogg, it’s not hard to guess that she’s amenable to bringing cannabis into the mix. Per the video:

Snoop: “When do we add the, uh…”

Martha: “The stuff?”

SD: “Yeah.”

MS: “Later. That’s secret.”

This recipe incorporates sweet icing and chopped pecans, which make this soft, cakey brownie rich and delicious. Since Ms. Stewart ties her full name to this recipe, you know it’s got to be good. But is it the best cannabis-infused brownie?

Martha Louise Stewart’s “To-Die-For” Brownies

4 large eggs

⅔ C cannabis-infused oil

2 C sugar

Note: The amount of cannabis oil specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your cannabis oil and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
