Mushroom Chocolate. Magic mushrooms and chocolate have been used as a match made in heaven for generations, so here are a few recipe ideas to help give it a go.
Although magic mushrooms can be enjoyed straight up as they are, they can make a great addition to your cooking – especially if you have a sweet tooth. Chocolate and magic mushrooms are an excellent mix, allowing you to enjoy great flavour as you munch down your shrooms. So here are a few recipes to combine the two into magic mushroom chocolate, making the mushroom experience much more palatable.
Buy Magic Mushroom Chocolates
Mushroom chocolate, or magic mushrooms, contains psilocybin, which is modified in the body to psilocin after ingestion. Both compounds are hallucinogens that work by promoting a loop of communication between neurons, contributing to neurotransmitter release. Additionally, psilocybin mimics a chemical called serotonin, a neurotransmitter related to feelings of happiness and well-being that contribute to the euphoric high that’s the common catalyst to psychedelic drug use.
A QUICK WORD ON DOSAGE
Dosage for all of these recipes is quite simple. All you have to do is use one normal raw dose per portion.
Example: If you are creating one chocolate bar to share between two people, use two doses of magic mushrooms and evenly distribute it throughout the entire bar. This will mean half a bar equals one dose.
Important note: The psilocybin within magic mushrooms – the main psychoactive ingredient – quickly breaks down when exposed high temperatures, so make sure your shrooms are never placed in any overly hot substance.
Easy Way To Make Magic Mushroom Chocolate
The most simple and straight forward method of creating a magic mushroom infused chocolate is as follows.
YOU WILL NEED:
Thoroughly dried magic mushrooms
Bars of store bought chocolate (whatever you fancy)
A large saucepan
A glass bowl
A sharp knife
Chocolate moulds (if you don’t have moulds you can use a non-stick baking tray)
Using your sharp knife, cut up your magic mushrooms into small pieces.
Break up you chocolate and place it in your glass bowl.
Put some water in your saucepan then place your glass bowl on top of it to create a DIY bain-marie.
Place your saucepan on a heat source and bring the water to boil. As the water boils it will heat up the chocolate above it, causing it to melt.Alternative: If you are struggling to get this to work, you can also place your bowl of chocolate in a microwave on low. However, whilst this will work, you will need to keep a very close eye on your chocolate, as it will easily burn when microwaved.
Now that you have melted chocolate, allow it to cool for a second.
Once the chocolate has cooled a little, but is still liquid, add in your finely cut mushrooms.
Stir the chocolate mix so that the mushroom are evenly distributed throughout it.
Carefully pour it out into your moulds and then put them in the fridge to cool and set.
