Cannabis Hot Chocolate Recipe

On a cold, chilly day, sometimes there’s nothing better than a warm cup of hot chocolate. The deliciously tasting drink is great for heating one’s body; but did you know that it can be easily infused with cannabis? That’s right, drink some “pot” chocolate and let it do more to your body than just warm it up.

The recipe below calls for some cannabis-infused hot chocolate. It is a fairly simple recipe to complete and should take around 20-30 minutes to do so. Enjoy!


Here is what you will need for this recipe:

  • 1/2 gram of finely ground cannabis
  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 5 ounces of unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup of light cream
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Marshmallows (optional)


Step 1: Dissolve

Start by turning your stove on to medium heat. Next, place a saucepan over the heat and throw in your milk, sugar, and pinch of salt. Stir until the ingredients are well mixed. Allow this to heat until the sugar and salt have dissolved.

Step 2: Boil

Once the sugar and salt dissolve, proceed to add in the cannabis, light cream, vanilla, and pinch of cinnamon. Slightly stir in the ingredients. Then, bring the mix just under a boil. After that, add in the chocolate.

Step 3: Stir

When the chocolate is added to the saucepan, you can turn the heat off. Stir the chocolate until it has completely melted. Finally, strain out the hot chocolate and it will be ready to serve!

Step 4: Serve

The last step is to add toppings to your “pot” chocolate if you desire. A common topping is small marshmallows. Another one is whipped cream. You can also use nutmeg, and of course, use any of your toppings. Once you figure out toppings, serve the drinks!

If you are sharing your “pot” chocolate with others, make sure to let them know it contains cannabis. Nevertheless, you all will have a great time. Enjoy that warm cup of chocolate. Hope you liked the recipe, Reefer Post has tons more! Thanks for reading!

Marijuana Hot Chocolate FAQ:

How is cannabis hot chocolate different from regular hot chocolate?

Cannabis hot chocolate is different from regular hot chocolate because it has cannabis in it. Cannabis is a psychoactive drug that produces a euphoric state and can be used as a medication to help with chronic pain, anxiety, and depression.

The ingredients in cannabis hot chocolate are the same as the ingredients in regular hot chocolate. The main difference is that cannabis hot chocolate contains THC or CBD oil which gives you a high when you drink it.

Can you make cannabis hot chocolate with other types of milk than just dairy milk?

The answer is yes! With other types of milk, you can make a cannabis hot chocolate that will not taste like it has been tainted with dairy.

There are many different types of milk out there, and they all have their flavor. For example, soy milk has a sweet flavor while almond milk is nuttier. And coconut milk is rich and creamy.

One of the most popular substitutes for dairy milk in cannabis recipes is almond milk. This type of milk has a subtle sweetness to it that can be enhanced with a little bit of vanilla extract or cinnamon.
