Try This Canna Hot Chocolate – Perfect for Winter!

If you’ve had a chance to enjoy the snow during its short time on Vancouver Island, you may be craving a nice, hot drink to end off your frosty evening. What better choice than a hot winter classic like the nostalgic and delicious hot chocolate?

Although the inventors of hot chocolate (the Ancient Mayans of Mexico) enjoyed a very different version than what we drink today, its delectable, rich flavours couldn’t be stopped from becoming a worldwide favourite. If you’re looking for a decadent way to take your hot chocolate to new heights, we’ve got just the recipe for you! 

One of our favourite recipe books, Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails & Tonics by Warren Bobrow has created a luxurious twist on the classic hot cocoa. The magic ingredient here is cannabutter, and if you’ve not had the pleasure of making some at home, we highly recommend heading to our blog to learn How to Make Cannabutter!

If you’re unsure of cannabutter in your cannabis hot chocolate, there are a variety of powders and oils you can easily add to any drink of your choosing. 

Marrying his experience with cannabis and his passion for mixology Warren Bobrow’s recipe books are an excellent way to introduce cannabis into your lifestyle. With many opting for an alcohol alternative or looking for different ways to consume, cooking with cannabis is becoming increasingly popular. It’s a great time to pick yourself up this recipe book, but for now, enjoy a sneak peek at our take on the “Squadron of Ferocious Dragons” hot canna-cocoa!
