    I love this recipe.

    First off, you need some ganja butter. The rule of thumb I use is 3 gs of ground herb per stick of butter (1/2 cup, 4 oz.) If you have a 1/2 oz to kill, the best way to do so is to get a tub of the soft margarine, the 15 oz. ones. Scoop it all out into a double boiler. If you do not have a double boiler, a bowl with steep sides that will fit inside a pot of boiling water works too. Melt the butter in the double boiler, and add your ground ganja, stir and leave for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the dbl boiler from the stove and pull out the insert or bowl, whichever you're using. Stretch a piece of cheese cloth over another bowl and strain the leftover plant matter out, squeezing all the butter out of it. Throw that away. What you have left should be a light green with some small flecks of green in it. Wait for it to cool for a few minutes at room temperature, and then pour it back into the original tub, cover, and throw it in the freezer for a couple hours. Voila! ganja butter! If you opt for using real butter, you will have to remove a layer of ice from your frozen ganja butter, but it'll still be good!

    Now for the fudge. Melt 1/4 cup of ganja butter in a microwave safe bowl. Stir in 2-3 tablespoons baking cocoa depending on your tastes. I prefer Ghiradelli, but Hersey's will do just fine. Add a splash of milk, about 2 tablespoons, and stir until there are no lumps, a whisk works well. Add powdered sugar a little at a time stirring again until there are no lumps. Add the powdered sugar until it thickens up a bit and is your preferred sweetness. Put it in the fridge until it solidifies, usually about 20-30 minutes. You can cut pieces out or just eat it with a spoon, but be careful, it's not only tasty fuggin fudge, it's stoney as hell, but takes about 30 minutes to kick in, so don't gorge yourself and then expect to accomplish anything for the rest of the day. Enjoy!

    the butter sounds so easy
    almost too easy
    everywhere I've herd and the way I've done it
    is you need to simmer for atleast 3 hours
    I'm not sure if 10 mins will cut it

    ^^Like your quote, "but I know where to get it"

    You can simmer as long as you want, 10 minutes has always worked for me, I suppose if you weren't using finely ground ganja, it would take longer to reach all the trichomes. By all means, go as long as you wish, I can't quote anything specific, but I do know that trichomes and THC are temperature sensitive. If you get it too hot, you start destorying THC, eventually leaving you with funky butter.

    but what if i want to use all of the herb?
  11. LonerStoner

    LonerStoner Registered+

    1/2 Oz to 1 15 oz. tub of margarine (or butter), if you want to use all the herb for one batch of fudge, you'd better be prepared to not think for a month! I'm not even sure if it is possible to cram that much ganja into that little amount of butter.

    I tried this long cook method and it destroyed the butter...what was good smoke turned into green colored butter with NO effectiveness. LonerStoner is right. Now, LonerStoner, I'm not clear on how much powdered sugar I should prepare to use some kind of range?

    wow, another lost thread resurrected. To answer your question, just add powdered sugar until it reaches your preferred sweetness, although the sweeter the fudge, the thicker the fudge, I'd guesstimate I use about 1/3 - 1/2 cup per batch.

    Is powdered suguar the same as icing suguar??
    coud i just use regular granulatesd instead?
  15. LonerStoner

    yes, powdered sugar is the same as icing sugar (i think)

    granulated sugar wouldn't work as well imo because you would have to dissolve it in the fudge and I don't see that happening.

    Finally a good explanation on how to make ganja butter. It must smell up the house though, but still sick explanation now I can try it. I always thought you used more for a stick but if onyl 3 grams, it is worth it.
