Selecting Your Ingredients

The secret to exquisite infused brownies lies in selecting top-notch ingredients. 

For the botanicals, aim for quality and consistency. It’s important to choose a suitable herb that complements brownies’ rich, chocolatey flavor. 

Always consider the flavor profile and potency to ensure a balanced and enjoyable treat.

When it comes to other components like chocolate, flour, and sugar, choosing higher-grade options can amplify your brownies’ overall flavor and texture. 

Remember, the quality of your ingredients directly influences the outcome.

How to Make Infused Brownies

Crafting the perfect batch of infused brownies involves several key steps:

  • Decarboxylation. A critical step, decarboxylation activates the key components in your infusion. A precise tool like the ONGROK Decarboxylator Machine can be incredibly useful for maintaining lab-grade temperature control.
  • Infusing Your BaseMerging the activated ingredients with a fat source, such as butter, is essential. The ONGROK Butter Maker provides an even and effective infusion, ensuring the potency and quality of your end product.
  • Preparation. Preheat your oven and prepare your baking pan once your fat source is perfectly flavored.
  • Mixing Your Brownie Batter. Blend your infused base thoroughly with your favorite brownie mixture, ensuring a uniform consistency.
  • Baking. Finally, bake the mixture according to the recipe guidelines.

Troubleshooting Common Baking Issues

Encountering problems while baking infused brownies is not uncommon. 

Here are some solutions to typical challenges.

  • Dry or Crumbly Brownies. This often results from overbaking or incorrect oven temperature. Use an oven thermometer to ensure accurate heat settings. Adding a bit more fat to the batter can also help.
  • Uneven Baking. If the brownies are baking unevenly, it might be due to your oven’s hot spots. Rotate the pan halfway through baking for a more uniform bake.
  • Sticking to the Pan. To prevent sticking, make sure to grease your pan adequately or use parchment paper.
  • Uneven Infusion. An uneven mix of your infused base can lead to varying potency in different parts of the brownie. Thorough mixing is key to avoiding this issue.

Customizing Your Brownies

One of the joys of making infused brownies is the ability to tailor them to your preferences. 

And because we all like different things, there is no one answer for how strong to make the base when making brownie edibles. 

Adjusting the potency is as simple as changing the proportion of infused ingredients. 

You need a bigger quantity when infusing the fat source to make the herb more potent. However, mix your infused base with a regular one for a milder batch.

Get creative by adding layers or toppings to your brownies. Consider a swirl of peanut butter, a sprinkle of sea salt, or a layer of caramel. 

The possibilities are endless, limited only by your imagination.

Keep testing and experimenting with different flavor extracts or toppings to find the right combination for you.


What’s the best way to store infused brownies?

To keep your brownies fresh, store them in an airtight container. They can stay at room temperature for a few days, but for longer storage, refrigerate or freeze them. This preserves their freshness and maintains the potency of the infusion.

Can I use any strain for my infusion?

Yes, but consider the flavor profile and potency. Some herbs complement the chocolate flavor better than others.

How long do the effects of an infused brownie last?

The effects can vary, but typically, they last longer than smoking or vaping. Start with a small portion and wait to understand its effects on your body. Always consume in a comfortable and safe environment.

Are there any special tips for first-time bakers?
