You Can Put CBD in That: Chocolatey Peanut Butter Brownies
Comedian Rachel Feinstein hits the Delish test kitchen to make tasty, CBD-topped brownies.
One of the best things about CBD is how you can take it in a bunch of forms—including, of course, with chocolate.
As part of our exploration of all things CBD, Marie Claire teamed up with Delish to create a gooey, soft, peanut-butter-frosting-topped brownie with a perfect dose of CBD. And the hilarious Rachel Feinstein joined the party. (Because the only thing more fun than cooking with CBD is cooking with a CBD-enthusiast who’s a comedian!)
Delish’s Lena Abraham brought Rachel into the Delish test kitchen to cook up a storm, make the ultimate CBD dessert, and learn a little bit about cooking with the cannabinoid. (For example, did you know that CBD has a boiling point of between 320°F and 350°F? That means you can’t bake it at the temperature brownies require, which is why mixing CBD into a frosting or a topping is a good choice!)
The full recipe is below, but you should definitely watch the hilarious video to understand exactly how to make them as chocolatey, soft, and chock-full of CBD as Lena and Rachel’s batch.
For the brownies:
- 1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips, divided
- 1 c. (2 sticks) butter, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
- 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
- 5 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
For the peanut butter swirl:
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 4 tbsp melted butter
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- CBD oil
(Note: For a 1,000mg vial, like this Rosebud oil, one full dropper is around 33mg; Try to aim for between 15-25mg per serving of the brownies. That means, for this recipe which serves about 12, go for 6 full droppers. Here’s an equation table if you need help.)
Peanut butter brownie recipes? Yup, you can put CBD in that. Watch comedian Rachel Feinstein hit the Delish test kitchen to make tasty, CBD-topped treats.
CBD Peanut Butter Brownies
CBD won’t actually get you high, but it has loads of benefits. It can reduce stress, ease pain, and even help with pain! Combine all that with a fudgy as hell brownie, and we’re in love.
But here’s the thing: Heating CBD oil above a temperature of 350° will bake off all the good stuff. So instead of adding it to the batter, we dropped some into some creamy peanut butter frosting. We use approximately a half drop per serving (a small bottle can be expensive!), but you can add a bit more if you’d like.
