  • 4 six-ounce ramekins
  • Electric mixer
  • Double boiler


  • 1/2 cup cannabis butter
  • 6 & 1/2 1 oz squares semisweet chocolate finely chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 4 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease and flour four 6-ounce ramekins.
  • Place chocolate and cannabis butter in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes.
  • Combine eggs and sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until pale and thick, about 5 minutes. Mix in melted chocolate, cocoa powder, and flour until combined. Pour batter into the prepared ramekins and place on a baking tray.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the sides are set but the middle is still jiggly, 10 to 13 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
