Looking for a classy treat to medicate? This mousse is a real show stopper and adding a kick of cannabis really takes it over the top.
Everyone should have one elegant dish that they can whip up in no time to treat themselves and their friends. We all have times when a typical edible is either boring or just out of place. This recipe can help fill that void with its clean presentation and rich smooth taste.
I want to be comfortable and social. But, like many of us, I find it difficult to loosen up. For me, never having been a drinker, this is the yearly wine party. I am of the opinion that if alcohol can be social lubricant, than so can cannabis. I usually prefer cannabis to alcoholic drinks. This can make some people uncomfortable, especially at a fancy dress shindig. So instead of smoking, I make these. Now, who doesn’t love a good dessert?
Tolerance and Dosing
These delicious little mousse are only about 17mg a piece. The hard part is not eating them all myself. These are a wonderful way to medicate or recreate that still leaves others with an elegant impression. No need to leave anyone out as the raspberry mousse is not medicated. I double the raspberry mousse when I make this, so my friends who are not 420 friendly can still enjoy with us. Make sure you clearly label the cannabis infused to avoid any uncomfortable situations. Remember to give 2 full hours before having a second one for the cannabis to fully kick in.
Yield: 6 servings
Prep: 30 minutes
Cooling: 2 hours
- 3 oz raspberry gelatin powder (Jell-o works fine)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 2 cups whipped cream or whipped topping (I like cool whip for this)
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 1 oz unflavored gelatin powder (found in the baking aisle or by the Jell-o)
- 2 1/2 cups half and half milk divided
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 5 oz semisweet baking chocolate chopped finely
- 1/2 HI-FI Dark Chocolate bar chopped finely
- fresh berries for serving optional
- Add 1 cup of boiling water and gelatin to a medium bowl. Stir slowly for one minute until dissolved, and then stir in 1/2 cup cold water. Set aside to cool.
- In another medium bowl, whip cream until stiff. Once the gelatin mixture is lukewarm, stir in the whipped cream until blended.
- Use a standard muffin tin to set 6 stemless wine glasses or similar on the diagonal. Use mini paper baking cups or similar to prop up the glasses. (Try folded muffin liners to help keep glasses in place)
- Pour raspberry mixture in to about 1/4 inch below the rim of the glass. Keeping the glasses in position, carefully lift the tray and place into the fridge. Chill one hour
- While the raspberry mousse is chilling, make the chocolate panna cotta. Add 1/2 cup of half and half milk to a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin on top and set aside.
- Meanwhile add the remaining 2 cups half and half and sugar to a small-medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until almost boiling. Remove from heat and whisk in gelatin mixture, chocolate, and HiFi bar pieces for several minutes until smooth.
- Remove the raspberry mouse glasses from the fridge and place each one on a flat work surface. Once chocolate mixture is lukewarm, slowly pour into each glass until the raspberry mousse is covered.
- Chill one more hour to allow the chocolate to set. Garnish with optional fresh berries. Serve and enjoy!
I hope this helps with those fancier occasions or at least elevate your game nights. This recipe can be altered to use any of the HI-FI bars. These are pretty enough to pass the toughest critics, and just cannabis enough to ease an awkward social experience.
