12 Days of Cannabis Cookies for an Extra-Happy Holiday
“On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
An insane hit of THC.”
Baking sweet treats is serious business around the holidays. The oven is basically a revolving door with trays of stacked cookies flying in and out. We ain’t complaining.
And whether you’re a purist with a family recipe that still shines or a new baker looking for something bold to whip up, there’s a special batch you may want to consider. Yep, we’re talking cannabis cookies.

We’ve put together a list of standout edible cannabis recipes you can bring to any holiday party (with due warning).
The creaminess of a coconut almond macaroon or the kick of a gingersnap will mask the taste of cannabis, leaving your strait-laced uncle to ask, “Is there even weed in here?” while reaching for his third and seeing a lot of purple or something.
Now that’s good baking. These 12 cannabis cookie recipes will have you in a Happy Holidaze quicktime.
While those used to the effects of edibles may have a simple swell time with these recipes, people who are new to them may find it hard knowing how much to eat.
Due to their delayed effect (you’ll feel their buzz between 30 minutes and 2 hours later), edibles have a high potential for overdose, and their effects can last a long time compared to smoking.
Especially when home baking, the THC content can be hard to track. Take it slow and know your limit.
The “I don’t feel anything, just one more” mentality is fine until it all kicks in simultaneously. Whoever you’re sharing cookies with, provide fair warning of what’s afoot.
1. Gingersnap cookies with medicated caramel frosting
Topped with a layer of weed-enhanced caramel frosting, these molasses-spiked morsels are the sweets you never expected would find their way into your holiday baking — but are glad you gave em’ a shot.
Think of them as the perfectly spiced gingersnaps grandma used to make, only with something a little extra that grandma would never have thrown in.
Made with cinnamon, molasses, and ginger, the tasty delights only need 10 minutes in the oven. One batch makes 30 cookies, so put on a pot of tea, throw these in the oven, and freeze any leftover dough for next time.
2. Cannabis-infused almond laced cookies
If you need a break from classic gingerbreads, we hear you. There’s definitely a time and place for crispy snowflake-like cookies with a different kind of look and zing — one of fresh orange zest and almond.
(And a little cannabis-infused coconut oil.)
They’re drizzle-coated with chocolate, so, as you can imagine, that combination is killer. These treats are vegan and gluten-free too, made with coconut oil, coconut milk, gluten-free all-purpose flour, and brown rice syrup.
But, as another reminder before licking the delicious spoon too many times — there’s definitely cannabis-infused coconut oil in here. So if you want to finish the bake without getting baked, then it might be wise to refrain from spoon-lickage.
3. Cannabis chocolate chip cookie dough balls
When cookie dough cravings hit, cookies that require zero baking are a must.
Usually sneaking a chunk of cookie dough means risking the chance of a belly ache after eating raw egg. Not today, belly bother!
This recipe is sans egg but needs cannabutter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, milk, vanilla extract, flour, and semisweet chocolate chips.
You can store them up to a week in an airtight container, which is also ideal for a cookie you should refrain from devouring more than one or two of at once.
4. Oatmeal canna cookies

Oatmeal cookies are always a hit on the dessert table. These dense treats come to life as a result of raisins, oats, pecans, and the wild-card ingredient of cannabis-infused butter.
Bake these (very) bad boys until they’re slightly browned and serve. But do let the people know what they’re biting into — they’re in for one heck of a journey.
5. Marijuana peanut butter cookies
Peanut butter cookies are a no-brainer.
They’re both salty and sweet, and we often reach for them when a classic chocolate chip just isn’t cutting it. Who doesn’t love that soft, chewy, peanut buttery-ness?
This recipe, based on a grandma’s very old recipe, provides a bunch of protein alongside a touch of cannabutter.
6. Cranberry, cannabis, and chocolate chip cookies
Wrapping presents, arranging food, trying to get everything finished at work before you get to put your feet up — the holidays can be super chill, but the weeks before can be mad. And the holidays themselves aren’t always happy.
Don’t worry though — these cookies can take the edge off.
Packed with brown sugar, vanilla, oat flour, oats, cinnamon, ginger, dried cranberries, dark chocolate chips, and cannabis-infused coconut oil, you’ll forget that you’re biting into something healthyish.
And also where you put your Santa hat.
7. Marijuana toffee chocolate chip cookies
Toffee isn’t a flavor everyone wildly craves through the holidays in the same way as a gingerbread or shortbread.
But once you get a taste of the butterscotch-like bits, it’ll be in your baking rotation for some time. This is just a good-ass cookie generally, but its nuttiness (and overall woozy vibes) lends itself well to holiday-themed tomfoolery.
(If people really have an issue with its lack of “holiday flavors,” just cut it into the shape of a Christmas tree.)
This medicated recipe is sweetened up with a toffee chip/chocolate chip combination and nutty with your pick of walnuts or pecans.
8. Cannabis-infused sugar cookies
You wait all year to stuff your face with sugar cookies so might as well make them gorgeous. And intoxicating.
If the intended recipient of your cookie is fine and dandy with the surprise ingredient of cannabis butter, we see these as the perfect gift for any holiday visit.
Plus, you can regulate how potent your sweet treats come out by swapping out any portion of the cannabutter with standard butter.
9. Coconut almond macaroon edibles

With toasty coconut on the outside and dense almond on the inside, these medicated macaroons are a fun break from your spiked eggnog.
These fancy-looking desserts are vegan and gluten-free too.
10. No-bake stoner chocolate balls
Not all chocolate-filled desserts are as unhealthy as you think. These chocolate bites are on the healthier side thanks to wholesome oatmeal, salty peanut butter, instant espresso, honey, dried coconut, and cocoa.
And a knob of cannabutter doesn’t hurt either.
11. Gluten-free medicated holiday cookies
Gluten-free, festive, and most importantly, delicious.
The base of these cookies is made up of chia seeds, brown rice flour, and garbanzo bean flour, and they’re coated in a frosting packed with citrus zest, cannabutter, sugar, and maple syrup.
Santa will be thrilled if you leave these out for him. Although he might not end up getting around to all of those houses if he chows them down in front of the fireplace, so maybe tell him to hang onto the cookies until he’s back at the North Pole.
12. Weed snickerdoodles

Cinnamon is a classic wintry spice, and snickerdoodles are among the best cinnamon delivery systems imaginable. Pair that with a hit of marijuana-y fun, and you might just have completed Christmas by making these.
This recipe uses kief, or cannabis pollen/crystals, so that the flavor remains nutty and avoids the herbiness of many weed cookie recipes.
Cookies are excellent. Some people maintain that weed is equally so. Combining the two in a seasonal way may make you a holiday hit worthy of Mariah Carey.
If you’d prefer a less… contemplative cookie, look no further than our bumper guide to creating holiday cookies.
Get right into the winter spirit with these 12 holiday cookies that are a bit stronger than last year’s. Weed cookies may be what makes your holiday season merry and bright in 2020.

🚀 How to Make Marijuana Cookies Step-by-Step
As I’ve already told you, making marijuana cookies is very simple and you don’t need more than 30 minutes to prepare them (depending on your cooking skills). But let’s get to the important thing, the steps to make marijuana cookies:
Step 1: In a saucepan, put the butter to melt and when it is ready, add the marijuana previously grinded and decarboxylated. Put it on a low flame so it doesn’t burn.
put the butter to melt
You may also find marijuana butter for sale in your favourite marijuana dispensary.
Step 2: When the butter is ready, or we have melted the purchased marijuana butter, strain it into a bowl.
we filter the mixture
Step 3: Add sugar and eggs and beat well. While stirring, add the flour. If you want and to avoid lumps, you can pass the blender for a moment. Once we have a compact dough left, it’s time to add the extra ingredients we talked about before (chocolate, some aroma, etc…)
Add sugar and eggs
Step 4: Cover the bowl with transparent paper and place it in the oven while it is heated to 140 degrees.

Step 5: Remove the baking tray from the oven, place the baking paper and start making small balls with the dough already cold. The next step is to crush those little balls you’ve made with the help of a roller. And, from here, you can do two things: put them directly into the oven or, using molds with shapes, to give your biscuits shape you like the most. It may sound very sappy, but if you’ve used marijuana desserts before which make you happy, the evening can be very, very funny.

Step 6: Whether or not you have made shapes, place them in the oven for about 15 minutes. You’ll know they’re made because they start to brown. Don’t leave them much longer, because they can harden a lot.
place them in the oven for about 15 minutes
✅ How to Make Marijuana Cookies Without Oven
Actually, the recipe for cannabis cookies with or without oven, is not very different, although the flavor or the final result is not the same, the truth is that they are just as good. However, since we like to be able to give you a lot of ideas, let’s go with a slightly different recipe for oatmeal and chocolate marijuana cookies, for which you’ll need:
- One cup (it will serve as a meter)
- One cup of sugar (white)
- One cup of milk
- One cup of cannabis butter
- Four tablespoons of cocoa powder
- Half cup of peanut butter cream
- Three cups of instant oatmeal
- One coffee spoon with vanilla or cinnamon extract.

Of course, also the stuff we mentioned above for making cookies. And what are the next steps? Very easy; take notes:
Step 1: Mix the sugar, milk, cocoa and butter in a saucepan, and let the blend boiling for half a minute.
Mix the sugar, milk, cocoa and butter
Step 2: After this time, remove the saucepan and add the peanut butter, oatmeal and the aroma we have chosen.

Step 3: From the mixture we’ve made, we make balls to place them on a tray with baking paper, so that it does not stain, for later let them cool and harden until they are to our liking, and ready to eat.

Step 3b: The flavor of the cookies without baking does not appeal to everyone, so you always have the option of putting them in the microwave, about 5 minutes, at medium power (this will vary depending on each microwave) to have the texture more like traditional homemade cookies.

📖 How to make vegan pot cookies
Of course! vegans also have the whole right to enjoy some delicious marijuana cookies, but, using other ingredients, so whether you are a vegan or not, we also offer you this rich and simple recipe for cannabis cookies to make at home.
You’ll need to prepare:
- 1 Glass of sugar
- ½ glass of almond milk
- 3 tablespoons soluble cocoa
- 140 ml of coconut oil with cannabis infusion (so that we can decarboxylate marijuana and benefit from its THC).
- 1 tablespoon of starch
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla, cinnamon or other natural flavor you like
- 1 tablespoon of yeast
- A pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 50 g of brown or cane sugar
Ingredients for vegan cannabis biscuits
Once we have all the ingredients, the next steps are as follows:
Step 1: while the oven is pre-heating to 200 degrees we make the infusion of the coconut oil and cannabis tea in a saucepan (not recommended to make it in the microwave)
the oven is pre-heating to 200 degrees
Step 2: Mix the sugar, milk, starch, water, the aroma we have chosen, and add the infusion over the mixture. Mix flour, yeast and cocoa in another bowl.
Mix the sugar, milk, starch, water
Step 3: When both masses are ready, pour the liquid one over the solid one and knead it with your hands. You could do it with a rod, but doing it this way you won’t pass the heat from your hands into the dough. When it’s mixed, you can add cocoa nuggets or any other nut you like. We allow the dough stand.

Step 4: In the meantime, take a baking tray, wrap it with baking paper and make balls with your hand or with the help of a soup spoon.
Step 5: When you are finished with the balls, place them in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
place them in the oven for 10-15 minutes
🎯 Things to consider before eating marijuana cookies
As you may know and as we have already mentioned in other recipes, smoking marijuana is not the same as eating it, so you should be much more cautious when using it. In the case of these cookies, and especially if you are not in the habit of eating them, we advise you not to eat more than 1 or 2 before you see the effect they will have on you. That the effect can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours, so even if you feel like another one, you’d better wait. We want you to have fun!
Of course, and although we hate to mention it, you also know that cannabis and alcohol are not best friends, so even if you’re laughing with your colleagues, as much, you may take a glass of wine or one beer. But It would be better to avoid it, though the risk you take, is only up to you. Our responsibility is to give you the best recommendations.
