Equipment

  • Oven
  • Freezer
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Cookie Sheets
  • Parchment Paper

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 Cups Ice Cream
  • 1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 2/3 Cup Walnuts Chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Cannabis Butter Softened
  • 1/2 Cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tsp Hot Water
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt

Instructions

Making the Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  • In a mixing bowl, cream together the cannabis butter, white sugar, and packed brown sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing after each one. Then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve the baking soda in hot water, then add to the batter along with the salt. Finally, stir in the all-purpose flour, chocolate chips, and chopped walnuts.
  • Drop the batter by large spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are browned. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.

Preparing the Ice Cream

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Scoop the ice cream into 12 balls (roughly 3 tablespoons per ball) and spread evenly on the prepared cookie sheet. Cover the ice cream balls with another sheet of parchment paper. Gently press down until they fit the width of the cookies. If the ice cream starts to melt, put it in the freezer for another 5 to 10 minutes.

Making the Sandwiches

  • Place the flattened ice cream ball in between the two cookies. Serve immediately or wrap with plastic, parchment paper, or foil and freeze for later.

Notes

You can use any flavour of ice cream you like!

Another Method to Making a Weed Ice Cream Sandwich

There is also another easy way to make weed ice cream sandwiches. This method requires cannabis-infused ice cream. If you don’t have this or want to learn how to make it, we already wrote a comprehensive guide on how to do it.

To make the infused ice cream sandwich, the steps are the exact same as the recipe found above, but instead of making cannabis-infused cookies and adding ice cream, you do the opposite! Make normal cookies then combine them with the infused ice cream! It’s as simple as that!

To find and calculate the potency of your homemade edible ice cream sandwiches, you will need to find the potency of your cannabis butter. If you haven’t already calculated the potency of your cannabis butterhead over to our cannabis butter article by clicking here. Scroll down to the bottom of the post, you will find a calculator that you can use to estimate the potency of your infused butter.

An important thing to note is that it is no easy process to measure the potency of edibles. There are many variables involved meaning there is room for error. Some of the variables include the amount of cannabis used to make the infusion, the exact percentage of THC in the cannabis used, and the number of cannabinoids lost in the infusion process.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways where the estimate will go wrong and a mistake made at the start will be carried through. It’s important to understand that the potency calculator is just to help you estimate the potency.

Potency Calculator

This potency calculator was specifically made for this recipe. All you need to do is input the total mg of THC in 1 cup of your cannabis butter and the number of servings you made. The calculator is programmed to take into account the 1/2 cup of cannabis butter used for this recipe.
