CornerStones Chocolate Edibles

I absolutely love edibles. I’m not the biggest fan of smoking anything due to the impact on the lungs, so I will be doing a lot of product reviews and cooking recipes for edibles.

Today, I want to talk about CornerStones chocolate candies. I did not see these available in Colorado, so when I saw them here in Washington with a plethora of flavors (one of which is Espresso?!)… I had to try them.

I have only tried three of their flavors (so far):

  • Espresso Chocolate
  • Raspberry White Chocolate
  • Mint Milk Chocolate

Each bag contains 10 individually wrapped chocolate squares with 10mg THC per square. I really like that each square is individually wrapped and that the wrapping is plain silver. I can take one with me to an event and it’s completely innocuous (I always have a DD, don’t worry). People assume I’m in need of a sugar fix, not a plain reliever.

I tried the Espresso chocolate one first (sorry, I ate them all so I don’t have the bag for the photo). They’re good enough to eat by themselves because the marijuana aftertaste is minimal, which is really nice because I’ve had some edibles that had a strong marijuana aftertaste. I’m not a fan of burping MJ.

As I ran out of the Espresso ones, I bought the Raspberry and Mint ones. So far I must say that the raspberry ones are my favorite. If you’ve ever had a raspberry white mocha then you’ve experienced the flavor combination (if you haven’t… you know what to do).

Though all three have been delicious enough to eat by themselves, I have had fun incorporating them in other treats, such as s’mores and milkshakes!

Recipe time! Shall we start with s’mores? You will need:

  • Graham Crackers
  • Marshmallows
  • CornerStones Chocolates (I recommend the espresso ones for the s’mores)

Obviously the ideal location for making s’mores is next to a fire while you’re camping., however, you can always enjoy s’mores at home too! (Unless you have a flat-top electric stove. In which case, you’ll have to get more creative. I do not recommend using the microwave).

We have a coiled electric stove, so I use the following steps:

  1. Turn the burner on so the coil is hot enough to turn red.
  2. Skewer the marshmallow with a fork or actual skewer.
  3. Hold the marshmallow at least an inch away from the heat and rotate.
  4. Allow the marshmallow to reach a golden brown color.
  5. Place the marshmallow onto a prepped graham cracker with a square of chocolate.
  6. Eat it! 🙂

For the milkshakes, we use cashew milk ice cream due to my FiancĂ©’s dairy intolerance. You can use whatever type of ice cream you prefer. Each of the Corner Stones chocolates work well with vanilla and chocolate ice cream. I would recommend choosing comparable flavors that pair well.

For the milkshakes you will need:

  • Ice Cream (approximately 1 cup per person)
  • Milk; Whole, Soy, Almond, etc (1/3 the amount of ice cream used)
  • CornerStones Chocolates
  • Optional additional ingredients: peanut butter, caramel, girl scout cookies, other candies, etc).
  • Blender
  • Glasses and spoons
  1. Place the desired ingredients into the blender,
  2. Blend until you have a smooth consistency.
  3. Pour into glasses, top with any additional ingredients, and enjoy!

If you try these edibles in a recipe, please comment below and tell me how it went!
