How to Make Mushroom Chocolate

Chocolate is a delicious treat on its own, but when combined with the magic mushrooms Psilocybe cubensis, you have a recipe that’s both sweet and trippy. These psychedelic edibles can take an hour or more to start invoking their euphoric effects, so it’s important to be patient with them. Plus, unlike THC gummies, these chocolate bars are tasty enough to make you want to keep eating them until they’ve taken effect. Learn more

To make these mushroom-infused chocolates, first grind the mushrooms into a fine powder. Then, melt the chocolate. It’s best to use a double boiler, but if you don’t have one, you can also put the chocolate in the microwave for a few seconds at a time, stirring after each time to prevent scorching.

Then, add the mushroom powder and any other flavorings (such as vanilla extract or cacao powder). If you’re using dry ingredients like nuts or seeds, stir them in now so they’re evenly dispersed in the chocolate. Next, pour the chocolate into your desired molds or ice tray.

If you’re making a lot of chocolates, this could take a while. Be sure to set aside a few hours for making them, because once you start melting the chocolate, it will harden fast. Once the chocolate is ready, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Storing in the fridge can promote “bloom,” a whitish coating that appears on the surface of the chocolate and doesn’t taste or smell bad, but just looks weird.
