From the rich aroma of freshly ground herbs to the indulgent texture of melted chocolate chips, these pot-laced desserts are sure to tantalize even the most discerning palates.

Plus, with just a few simple ingredients you can whip up a batch in no time at all!

There’s something comforting about baking an old favorite recipe like brownies from scratch; but when you add cannabis into the mix, it elevates this traditional treat to a whole new level.

With these delicious recipes for vegan and gluten free brownies, you can experience a truly unique culinary delight that is guaranteed to make every bite worth savoring.

And now, let’s move onto cookies…


Cookies are a staple in any cannabis-infused dessert. They can be made with different ingredients to get unique flavors and textures, depending on the recipe you try.

One of our favorite cookie recipes is for making Cannabis Cookie Bars. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (177°C). In a medium bowl whisk together 1 cup sugar, ½ cup cannabutter, 2 tablespoons molasses, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and an egg until smooth. In another bowl mix together ¾ cups all-purpose flour, ¼ teaspoon baking soda and a pinch of salt. Combine both mixtures into one larger bowl and mix until combined before pouring the batter onto a greased 8×8 inch baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown before cutting into bars when cool.

Another great option are Cannabiscotti Bites – perfect for sharing as they’re bite sized! Begin by combining ⅓ cup melted cannabutter, 2 eggs, and a splash of almond extract in a large bowl before adding 4 tablespoons granulated sugar and 6 tablespoons brown sugar while continuing to stir. Add 2 cups all purpose flour and 3 teaspoons cornstarch along with 1 teaspoon baking powder and ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon next before stirring fully again so that everything is evenly distributed throughout the mixture. Scoop out tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper lined baking sheets then bake for 12 minutes at 350°F (177°C). Let them cool completely before serving or storing; these bites also freeze well if you want to save some for later!

With cookies like these two varieties now under your belt, it’s time to move on to something creamier: panna cotta…

Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta is the perfect way to get your cannabis-infused dessert fix for those looking for a budget-friendly option. It’s easy to make, and with some creative thinking you can have a delicious dessert that won’t break the bank.

For any fans of fruit infused edibles, this one’s for you! By adding fresh or frozen fruit puree into your Panna Cotta mix, you’ll be able to experience both sweet and savory flavors in every bite. Plus, it gives off an aesthetically pleasing look when served up because of its creamy texture.

It doesn’t take much time either—the ingredients are simple and straightforward; all you need is cream, sugar, gelatin powder, and water. From there, just let everything sit overnight so the gelatin will set properly.

This recipe only requires 8-10 minutes of active prep work on the stovetop before transferring it into molds or ramekins where they can chill out until firm. And if you’re feeling extra fancy? You can top them with some freshly whipped cream or homemade caramel sauce for added flair.

So why not give this cannabis-infused treat a go? With such minimal effort required yet maximum flavor achieved, Panna Cotta makes for an ideal frugal and flavorful edible delight that’s sure to satisfy even the most discerning palate without having to worry about spending too much money.

To continue exploring more ways to make affordable marijuana desserts at home, let’s move onto how we make ice cream pies next!

Ice Cream Pies

Making cannabis-infused ice cream pies is a great way to combine the deliciousness of dessert with the effects of marijuana. Not only can you make sure your desserts are frugal and flavorful, but also that they provide an enjoyable high.

Start by gathering together any type of fruit sorbet you want for your pie filling, along with some softened vanilla or other flavored ice cream.

Lay out two graham cracker crusts in separate baking dishes and spread one even layer of melted butter over each. Partially bake them according to package instructions before taking them out to cool completely.

Once cooled, add one scoop of softened ice cream into each crust and freeze it until firm enough to work with. Now it’s time to get creative!

Top off your frozen treat with layers of flavor using diced fruits like mangoes, papaya or pineapple; chocolate chips; cookies; or pre-made bars such as Snickers or Bounty Ice Cream Bars. If desired, drizzle on some honey or Nutella for added sweetness and texture.

Finally, return your pies back into the freezer overnight so they have time to set up properly before serving. With this recipe, you’ll be able to create amazing budget friendly treats everyone will enjoy – both recreationally and gastronomically !


Ice cream pies are a classic favorite for many, so if you’re looking to add some marijuana-infused flavor without breaking the bank, then look no further. Now it’s time to dive into the world of cheesecakes!

Cheesecakes offer an abundance of options when infusing with cannabis – from classic flavors like vanilla or strawberry to more creative combinations such as key lime and chocolate coconut. The best part is that these can all be made in your own kitchen at home with just a few simple ingredients.

Here’s a quick list of ways to make budget-friendly cannacheesecake recipes:

1. Fruit Filled – If you’ve got some fresh fruit lying around, why not combine them with cream cheese and cannabis? Simply mix together crushed graham cracker crumbs, butter and sugar before adding your choice of fruits such as blueberries, bananas or raspberries. Top off with a layer of cannabis infused cream cheese before baking in the oven!

2. No Bake – For those who don’t want to turn on the oven but still want something tasty and frugal, try out this no bake recipe which only requires four basic ingredients; condensed milk, lemon juice, Graham crackers and cannabis oil. Simply blend together until smooth before pouring over a prepared crust and chilling overnight for best results.

3. Cake Pops – Get creative with cake pops by using leftover slices from previous cakes or cupcakes you’ve baked up! Start by crumbling up the pieces into small chunks and then mixing in melted cannabis butter or oil until evenly distributed throughout each ball. Once they’re chilled and hardened, dip ’em in melted chocolate candy coating or any other type of glaze you desire!

Cake Pops

Cake pops are a delicious and easy way to enjoy the flavors of marijuana-infused desserts. They’re simple to make, using cupcake truffles or cookie bars as a base. For an extra decadent treat, you can also dip your cake pop in chocolate or cover it with sprinkles!

With just a few ingredients and some basic cooking skills, you can enjoy these affordable treats any time of day! When making cannabis cake pops, be sure to use high quality edibles like those sold by reputable vendors. Using lower quality products could lead to poor results and an unpleasant experience.

Additionally, pay close attention when measuring out doses; too much THC can lead to unwanted side effects like anxiety or paranoia. However if prepared properly, these little bites of heaven will satisfy even the most experienced cannabis users!

If you’re looking for a delicious way to incorporate cannabis into your baking repertoire, look no further than cake pops! These inexpensive treats offer all the taste without breaking the bank – plus they come together quickly and easily so there’s no need for long preparation times.
