CBD infused Holiday Recipes

In true holiday spirit, we gathered a few of our office’s 2021 must-try holiday recipes and put a little holus twist on them, by infusing them with our CBD.

We promise that these recipes won’t disappoint!

(and, should you want to make them family-friendly, simply omit the CBD!)

TIP: Have you ever baked with CBD before? When baking with CBD it is SO important that your baking temperature doesn’t exceed 340°F. The reason being is that you will alter the state of the CBD, as anything over 340°F will begin to burn off terpenes – so, baking at 340°F ensures potency.

CBD Infused Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls

There are so many flavors of Christmas, but Eggnog is iconic. These CBD-infused eggnog cinnamon rolls are your new holiday obsession and the perfect addition to Christmas morning!

Ingredients

Dough:

    • 2 ½ Cups flour
    • 2 TBSP sugar
    • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
    • ½ tsp baking soda
    • ½ tsp salt
    • 1 Cup eggnog of choice
    • 30ml bottle of holus’ High Potency Natural Tincture

Filling:

    • 7 TBSP butter – melted
    • 3/4 Cup brown sugar
    • ¼ Cup sugar
    • 1 tsp nutmeg
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 tbsp butter – melted

Frosting:

    • 4 oz. cream cheese (or cream cheese substitute) – softened
    • 1 TBSP eggnog
    • ½ Cup powdered sugar
    • ½ tsp nutmeg

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 340°F
  2. Stir together the filling ingredients until it looks like wet sand. Set aside.
  3. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Create a well (hole in the center of the dry ingredients) and pour in the eggnog and 2 TBSP of metled butter. Use a fork to stir together to form a soft dough.
  4. Place the dough on a well-floured surface. Knead the dough a few times to work a little bit of flour into the dough. Do not add too much flour or your rolls will be tough.
  5. Use your hands to gently press the dough into a 10″x14″ rectangle, keeping some flour between the dough and counter.
  6. Spread the dough with 2 TBSP melted butter, and sprinkle the filling over the top. Leave about a ½” border all around the dough
  7. Slowly roll up from the shortest side. If the dough sticks to the counter, use a spatula or knife to gently loosen it as you roll. Cut the roll into 9 even pieces.
  8. Spread 1 TBSP melted butter in the bottom of an 8″x8″ baking dish.
  9. Place the 9 rolls in the pan with room around each one. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool slightly.

6 Bombs | Total Time: 45 mins.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Place a large plate into the freezer
  2. Create a double boiler by bringing a medium pot filled a little less than halfway with water to a simmer. Place a heatproof bowl that’s just big enough to sit on top of the pot and add your chopped chocolate to the bowl. Keep the pot over low heat and stir with a rubber spatula. Once chocolate is silky smooth add 6 droppers full of CBD to the bowl and mix until fully incorporated.
  3. Using a spoon or large pastry brush, coat each of the mold cavities with the melted chocolate, and place into the freezer for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes is up, repeat this step again. Remove both the candy coated mold and plate from the freezer. Carefully remove the candy coated half spheres from the mold and place onto the chilled plate.
  4. Place the small plate into the microwave and heat for 2 minutes.
  5. Place one candy coated half sphere upside down on the heated plate and move around to slightly melt the rim. Add 1 TBSP of Strawberry Drink Mix and 6-8 marshmallows.
  6. Place another candy coated half sphere upside down on the heated plate and move around to slightly melt the rim, and stick that half sphere on top of the other, and very gently secure the two together (they should go together no problem, but should you have any issues, just rub a little melted chocolate on the seam).
  7. Using the tines of a fork, drizzle melted chocolate on top of the bomb, and add sprinkles.
  8. Place Strawberry Hot Chocolate bomb into 6oz of milk of choice, stir and enjoy!

Key Lime Cheesecake Truffles

Are you dreaming of palm trees instead of Christmas trees?

These truffles are indulgent, rich, perfectly sized, and offer all the tropical holiday vibes, making them so irresistible!

 Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Zest the key limes and set them aside. Juice the limes, remove the seeds, and set the juice aside. In a food processor, pulse all the Oreos until they are crumbs. Add the cream cheese and pulse again, only for a few seconds. Before the cream cheese is fully mixed in, add the lime juice, 24 droppers full of CBD, and half of the zest. Pulse again, until the dough clumps, or sticks together. You should be able to easily form it into balls, that hold together.
  2. Form dough into balls, about 1 inch in size. Place on a pan lined with parchment paper, and lightly grease the paper. Set the balls in the freezer to firm them up.
  3. Create a double boiler by bringing a medium pot filled a little less than halfway with water to a simmer. Place a heatproof bowl that’s just big enough to sit on top of the pot and add your chopped chocolate to the bowl. Keep the pot over low heat and stir with a rubber spatula until silky smooth.
  4. Using a skewer or fork, dip the truffles into the white melting chocolate, covering all sides. Lightly tap the stick or fork on the side of the jar to drip any excess off the truffle.
  5. Sprinkle a bit of the zest on the top of the truffle while the candy melts are still wet.
  6. Let dry completely, and enjoy!
