Get Baked With This Delicious Recipe For Cannabis-Infused Brownie A La Mode

While it’s impossible to figure out who originally came up with the genius invention of the “pot brownie,” it’s safe to say that the concept will live on for eternity. Even to this day, folks everywhere are still trying to perfect and recreate their own versions of the legendary recipe.

Now, thanks to the newly founded legalization of recreational use of MJ in states like Washington, Colorado, and most recently, California, the aspects of cooking with cannabis are becoming more widely accepted. And, with more acceptance, comes improved technique, efficiency, and more deliciousness.

Since 4/20, aka the biggest celebration of cannabis all year, is almost upon us, we picked up your fave low-cal, high protein ice cream, Halo Top, to make the day — and the pot brownie — even more delicious. See our recipe for “Pot Brownie a la Mode” below.

Remember, everyone’s cannabis tolerance varies. FOODBEAST recommends consuming medicated edibles with oversight and caution. You can always eat more — not less!

Pot Brownie A La Mode Checklist

You will need:

– crockpot

– baking sheet

– oven

– cheesecloth

– cannabis grinder

– baking pan

– About 16 hours of cooking time


7-14 grams of cannabis

½ pound clarified butter

½ cup Cocoa powder

½ cup flour

3 ½ cups sugar

8 whole eggs

For the pot brownie al a mode recipe you’ll need 7 – 14 grams of cannabis and a ½ pound of clarified butter, to make cannabutter. Grind up the cannabis — preferably on a baking sheet — then bake for 30 minutes at 240 degrees.

After your cannabis is done baking, transfer it into your crockpot. Next, take the ½ pound of clarified butter and mix into cannabis and mix thoroughly. Let mixture cook on low for 6-8 hours.

After your cannabutter is done cooking for 6-8 hours, strain the mixture using cheese cloth. Just be sure that there is no plant material left. Let chill overnight.

Next, it’s time to make our brownies. Combine one ½ cup cocoa powder, a ½ cup flour, 3 ½ cups sugar, and 8 whole eggs into a large mixing bowl and stir. This mixture should yield a thick chocolatey paste.

Add in the ½ pound of cannabutter and one ½ cup of melted butter. It’s also a good idea to coat your pan with a nice layer of cannabutter so the brownies do not stick. It’s best to use a 9” x 13” or 11” x 15” pan.

If you only have a small pan, try not filling it to the top — the brownies will come out undercooked. You can use a toothpick to check if brownies are done. If brownies stick to the toothpick, cook them longer.

Set oven to 300 degrees and bake for 40 minutes. After cooling, cut and serve with a scoop (or more) of Halo Top ice cream (we used Vanilla Bean!).

Watch This Restaurant Turn Fried Chicken & Waffles Into A Cubano Sandwich

It’s easy to see why the Cubano sandwich trend has began to proliferate, branching out from its roots on the East Coast. If you think about it, the Cubano is probably one of the simplest sandwiches ever made, yet its simplicity is sparking culinary intrigue across the country —  and everyone is beginning to notice something special about the Cubano.

Having originated in Florida, the Cubano is traditionally made with roasted pork, ham, pickles, Swiss cheese, yellow mustard and lightly toasted on a panini grill. Its adaptations can certainly vary when it comes to specific ingredients, but all share the same no-frills approach to making an unforgettable and deliciously savory, melt-in-your-mouth creation.

This April, Bruxie, the fried chicken and waffle sandwich chain, will also be sharing their own Cubano concept.

Behold: the Bruxie Fried Chicken & Waffle Cubano Sandwich.

Made with shaved ham, Bruxie’s house-made honey-mustard, thinly sliced pickles, and of course their crispy, golden brown fried chicken, all served between two savory waffle buns, this is something that might actually be better than Spring Break.

If you’re looking to experience the traditional taste of the Cubano with a twist from Bruxie Gourmet Waffle Sandwiches, you’d better hurry. Like Spring Break, Bruxie’s Cubano Sandwich won’t be here forever (even though we all wish it would).

The Bruxie Cubano sandwich will be available from April 5 – 25.

Woman Attacked by Angry Taco Bell Customer who Blames Her for Missing Breakfast Cutoff


Every fast-food employee knows that the last 20 minutes before the breakfast menu ends are the most chaotic. Customers will storm the the restaurant and drive-thrus demanding they get their morning fix, regardless of the breakfast timer running out. One instance ended in the horrific attack of a Taco Bell customer.

According to KGUN-TV, a woman was ordering her breakfast at the Taco Bell drive-thru when she was assaulted by an angry Taco Bell customer. Detectives believe that the cause of the attack was the vehicle behind had just missed the cutoff for the breakfast menu and decided to take their rage and frustration out on the woman in front of him. This was obviously the best course of action rather than blame themselves for the hours they’ve had beforehand to order breakfast.

The woman reportedly pulled out of the Taco Bell when she noticed that the SUV that was behind her in line was now following her. Upon pulling over to call the police, she could hear the passengers of the vehicle (a man and woman) yelling expletives towards her.

A man then exited the car and proceeded to smash her car windows. Afterwards the man picked up a rock and struck the woman repeatedly in the face. The woman received a broken nose and teeth as a result of the attack, which unfortunately occurred only a few weeks before her wedding.

Despite this vicious assault, she says she will continue to go through with her big day.

Cult Soda Surge Made Available on Amazon, Sells out Immediately


Arguably the most popular soda of our childhoods has made a swift return. Yessir, if Coca-Cola ever had a child with Mountain Dew, it was Surge. While the citrus-flavored soda didn’t sell as well as most of the other carbonated beverages stocked on shelves at the time, its absence has definitely made many hearts grow fonder.

Dark times fell upon the soda world in 2003 when the soft drink was discontinued only seven years after it made its public debut. The Surge Movement, which was created to bring back Surge years ago, has more than 130K fans of the cult beverage. Coca-Cola has noticed this and made strides to quietly bring back the niche product. Upon being released on Amazon, the cult soda was sold out almost immediately. Another batch was posted and then also quickly sold out.

Surge’s brief, but messianic return can be considered a sign that the soda will be here to stay. According to Coca-Cola, this comeback will be a test to see if it’s worth restocking store shelves with the product. Yes, Coca-Cola. It most definitely is.

Never have we seen a product get such a near perfect review on Amazon. That’s the love of Surge for you.

Getting Familiar With Delicious Palestinian Stuffed Chicken

When grandma cooks, twenty times out of ten it’s fire. Doesn’t matter who’s grandma it is or where grandma came from, a recipe coming straight from her is unequivocally a banger. A meal from grandma means a meal cooked with love and care, one that comforts as much as it satisfies.

So when Foodbeast Marc Kharrat came upon a Palestinian dish that literally translates to ‘grandma’s stuffed chicken’, we all knew it’s automatically a must have.

Jerusalem Chicken, a Palestinian restaurant in Los Angeles, California, serves up delicacies such as the tangy and tantalizing Musakhan and flavorful cauliflower fritters called Mshat. But the scene stealer at this local gem was the Siti’s Stuffed Chicken. ‘Sitti’ in Arabic means ‘grandma’, which is only fitting, being that the stuffed chicken is a treasured family recipe passed down from the owner’s grandma herself.

“The dish is a labor of love. generously stuffing each cornish hen by hand. The stuffing mixture is made of rice, mushrooms and beef, which is stuffed carefully under the skin,” gushed Marc after experiencing the dish itself.

With such high praise and the backing of grandma’s love, it’s no wonder that Jerusalem Chicken is putting on for Palestinian food in all the delectable ways.
