Even though you can enjoy some magic shrooms the way that they are, they can be the perfect thing to add to your cooking, and they are great for desserts. Magic shrooms and chocolate are a perfect combination since chocolate can often cover the bitter taste of the shrooms. With the right recipes, you can easily combine chocolate and magic mushrooms to make the experience even more pleasant.
DOSING YOUR MAGIC SHROOMS
The dosage for each of the recipes is very simple. You just have to use one regular dosage for each serving of the dessert. For example, if you are creating a chocolate bar with two servings, you would use two doses of shrooms and make sure that it was distributed through your bar evenly. Then, you would use half of the bar for one dose.
The important thing to remember when you are cooking with shrooms is that the main ingredient is psilocybin, and this can break down quickly when it is exposed to high temperatures. Ensure that your shrooms are not placed in a very warm substance.
MAKING YOUR OWN MAGIC CHOCOLATE THE SIMPLE WAY
This is a very straightforward and simple method of making chocolate that is infused with psilocybin. First, you will need to gather some dried shrooms. Then, you will need a bar of your favourite chocolate from the store.
For tools, you will need a glass bowl, saucepan, and a sharp knife. You will need either chocolate moulds or a non-stick baking tray. If you do not have a non-stick pan, you can line one with parchment paper.
First, make sure that the magic mushrooms are dried thoroughly. Then, use the sharp knife to cut the shrooms into small pieces. Break up the chocolate into pieces, as well, and put that into the glass bowl. Place some water in the saucepan and put the glass bowl on the top to make your own double boiler.
Now, put the saucepan on the stove and slowly bring the water to a simmer. When the water is hot, it can heat the chocolate on the top and allow it to melt. If you are having issues with getting this to work out, you can put the chocolate in your microwave on reduced power for a few seconds at a time. While that can still work, you will have to watch the chocolate very closely. You might accidentally scorch it when it is in the microwave.
Once the chocolate is melted, you can let it cool for a bit. While it is still a liquid, you can add in the finely chopped magic shrooms. Then, stir the chocolate so that you evenly distribute the shrooms around it.
Pour this mixture in your moulds or on the cookie tray and then place it in the fridge to set. Then, you can cut it into however many portions you want.
MAKING YOUR OWN CHOCOLATE FROM SCRATCH
If you are more of an expert in a kitchen, you can make your own chocolate from scratch for your shrooms. First, you will need some well-dried shrooms. You will also need:
- 2 cups cocoa powder
- 2/3 cup milk (whole preferred)
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup powdered sugar
- 1½ sticks unsalted butter, softened
- A pinch of salt
For tools, you will need a large saucepan, sieve, chocolate moulds, mixing bowls, and a sharp knife.
First, put the water in the saucepan and bring it to a simmer. Chop the shrooms finely with the sharp knife. Now, mix the butter and cocoa powder until you form a paste. Now, add the cocoa and butter mix to your hot water and stir to make an even mixture. Then, bring the mixture to a simmer.
Once it is simmering, remove it from the heat and put it in the mixing bowl. Use a separate bowl to sift the salt and sugar together. This can get the lumps out. Now, add the salt and sugar to your cocoa mixture and stir well. The next step is to add the milk slowly, stirring as you go.
Once it is all in an even consistency, you can add the shrooms and mix well to ensure that each dose will be even. Put the chocolate in your moulds and then place them in the fridge to set. Then, you and your friends will be ready to enjoy them.
MAKING YOUR OWN HOT CHOCOLATE WITH SHROOMS
If you want to have a rich chocolatey drink, then shroom hot chocolate is for you. You just have to be careful not to make it too hot, so you avoid reducing the potency of the shrooms. You will need:
- Well-dried magic shrooms
- 3½ cups sugar
- 2¼ cups cocoa
- Several pinches of salt
- 1 cup milk for each serving
You will also need an airtight container, a sharp knife, and a mixing bowl.
First, cut the shrooms into several small pieces. Combine your dry ingredients into your mixing bowl and stir it well. This is your hot chocolate mix. You can store in the airtight container for whenever you are wanting some delicious chocolate.
When you are ready for a cup of hot chocolate, fill your mug around three-quarters of the way with milk and microwave it so it is just the right temperature, but not boiling. Then, put in a few scoops of your mix until it tastes just right to you.
You might want to let the shrooms steep for around five minutes before you drink your hot chocolate. Plus, if you swallow the shrooms along with the drink, you might have a more potent experience. But if you do not like them, you can also take them out once they are done steeping.
Hopefully, you have enjoyed learning about making magic mushroom and chocolate treats. Combining the two is an old tradition, and you can experiment to find the right treats for you.
