CBD Brownies Recipe
- 9×13 Baking Dish
- Mixing Bowls
- Wire Rack
- 1 Cup CBD Butter *Melted
- 3 Cups White Sugar
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
- First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Then lightly grease the 9×13 inch baking dish or line it with aluminum foil. This will ensure the brownies do not stick to the pan.
- Next in a large mixing bowl combine the melted CBD butter, sugar, and vanilla. Then beat in the 4 eggs one at a time while thoroughly mixing after each one. Ensure the mixture is well blended.
- Now using a separate mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Once it is sifted together, gradually stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture until its well blended.
- Stir in the cup of chocolate chips.
- Now once the batter has been thoroughly blended, spread it into the prepared 9×13 inch baking dish.
- Place the dish in the preheated oven. To check when the CBD brownies are done, insert a toothpick into the centre and if it comes out clean they're ready (can easily pull out), usually 35-40 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool off before dividing it up into the desired serving sizes.
