While I have published hundreds of creative and exotic cannabis recipes, I realize every now and then that I am missing some of the classics.  Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies being one.  So it was beyond HIGH TIME I did something about it.  Below is a terrific classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, medicated with marijuana butter (click here to learn how to make it if you don’t already know).  I based this recipe upon the ultimate classic when it comes to Chocolate Chip Cookies, Nestlé’s legendary Toll House cookies.

Freezer Friendly Cannabis Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of the best things about this recipe is that it is freezable!  I like to portion out individual cookies, place on a baking sheet and freeze solid before transferring to plastic freezer storage bags.  

Anytime you are ready for a medicated treat, simply remove the number of cookies you like, and bake up hot fresh medicated cookies anytime you want them.

From ready to make Cannabis Chocolate Chip cookies also make terrific DIY gifts for the edibles lovers in your life.

A note about the Dosing on this recipe!

This recipe will have about 10 mg THC per cookie  IF you made your marijuana butter from average cannabis (10% THC) and used 1/2 ounce of marijuana to make 1 cup butter.  

To adjust the dosage, either up or down, for your personal needs and to reflect the strength of the marijuana you are cooking with and the amounts you used to make your butter, be sure to take my FREE 10 minute online Dosing Class that will teach you how to do it.  Better yet, use my handy dosage calculator tools that do all the math for you (see below).

    Great choc chip cookie! Thanks for the recipe!

    One note: ingredients list baking powder; instructions, baking soda. Could cause confusion for those new to baking. 🙂

  • In your chocolate chip cookie recipe it’s his half a cup of cannabis infused butter And half a cup of butter I’m a bit confused do you put ordinary butter and and cannabis butter

    I used one cup of cannabutter and came outdtrong and delicious. Thanks for the recipe. First time ever growing harvesting and now cooking. Been waiting 50 years for this. This will be my go to recipe for sure.

    I messed up the recipe, put the eggs and vanilla extract in after mixing in the flour lol. They still came out pretty good.

    • Good to know. It should still work, but doing it the way the recipe is written should give a little better texture to the finished cookie, at least in theory. I am happy to know it still worked out!

    Was wondering how to store baked cookies? Is freezing an ok option? Thanks for this! I was making caramels for an edible, but it’s just gotten to dang sweet – happy with cookies!

    • You can but they can get soggy if not stored properly. A better option is to freeze the cookie dough unbaked (form cookies, put on a baking sheet and freeze, then move to a storage bag when frozen. Bake from the frozen state however many you need. Fresh hot cookies!

  • In the notes about dosing it says about10mg per cookie using 1/2oz cannabis to 1 cup butter. But in the ingredients list it calls for 1/2 C cannabis butter and 1/2 C regular butter. So is it 1/2oz cannabis to 1/2C butter or is the full cup of butter supposed to be cannabis? Sorry, I’m new to cannabis baking and want to make sure I get it right.

    • No, it means you made THE ENTIRE batch of butter with 1/2 ounce (14 grams) to one cup, but you are only using 1/2 of that batch in the cookies (you can make whatever you like with the other half, or if you need a stronger dose use more cannabutter and less regular butter). Everyone is different on dosing and if your cannabis is a different % of THC that will change the dose too, that’s what I say take my free dosing class or get the calculators to make it right for your needs and what you are cooking with.

  • If I freeze some of the uncooked dough how long is it good in the freezer for? How do you recommend cooking them from frozen? I was thinking of freezing them and once they get solid vacuum sealing them.

    Made this, cooked 6 and froze the cookie dough for the rest of the batch. Will cook them as I need them, they taste great!

  • You said you base your recipe on Nestle’s Toll House. I’m curious as to why you went with baking powder over the baking soda used in the Nestlé recipe. Thanks!

  • Can I make this recipe with 2 cups of cannabutter for hero dose cookies? 23% thcA bud. Or too much butter will ruin recipe?

  • Hi. I have some cannabis extract that my dad made and gave to me. It’s made out of food grade alcohol, and about 80% thc. Can I use this in these cookies? I’ve made brownies with it and the brownies took forever to finish cooking.
