I don’t actually like the taste of firecrackers, so I never make them. Cannabis tastes really earthy and the only thing that masks that for me is sweetness. You can also use nutella.
The key to good firecrackers are the 3 Fs: fat, foil and finely ground cannabis.
Mistakes to avoid:
- Low-fat peanut butter, it will still work but not as well (you need fat- the more fat the better) THC bonds to fat.
- Setting the temperature too high… (ovens tend to generally run higher or lower than what they are set to. Very few people calibrate their ovens. If your oven runs hot, setting Firecrackers at 340 F will basically cause the THC to combust.)
- Grind the cannabis.
- Do not eat more than 2 if you don’t feel it after 30 minutes. Edibles are not like smoking, you don’t feel it right away. It takes time for your body to metabolize what you just ate.
