Cannabis Craftsmanship: How to Make Infused Chocolate Truffles

Published on May 26, 2016 · Last updated September 29, 2020

Few things go together better than chocolate and cannabis. Cacao beans are even known to produce similar feelings to the pleasant effects of cannabis. That’s why we were so excited to learn more about the many ways the two can be combined when we were invited to the E’Claire Chocolates kitchen in Seattle, Washington.

Claire McKenzie, a professional chocolatier and cannabis aficionado, shows us how she infuses her gourmet chocolate truffles with cannabis oil. The combination creates a deliciously potent treat that’s as much fun to make as it is to eat! Using high-quality chocolate and heavy cream, Claire creates a chocolate ganache that can be used in a variety of ways. In the video she uses the ganache as the base of her chocolate truffles, which can then be rolled and coated with any number of toppings.
