Cannabis-Infused Reverse Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cannabis-infused chocolate cookies with white chocolate chunks are a great twist on a classic chocolate chip cookie. This recipe will make a large batch, but prepared cookie dough can be stored in the freezer. We’ve included instructions for storing prepared dough below.

This recipe requires prepared cannabutter prior to getting started. You can find our cannabutter recipe here. Always consume cannabis responsibly.

Total time: 35 min
Preperation time: 20 min
Cook time: 15 min
Yield: 40 to 48 cookies


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Small (pinch) bowl
  • Electric hand mixer (or stand mixer)
  • Spatula
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Baking sheets
  • Parchment paper
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Large tablespoon or 2-inch scoop for portioning


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup prepared cannabutter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp of instant espresso powder, combined with 1 ½ tsp of very hot water in a small bowl to dissolve
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup dark/black unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ tsp table salt
  • 1 ½ pounds good quality white chocolate, coarsely chopped (or substitute equal amount of white chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Combine the both butters and sugars in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium-high until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well and scraping down the bowl after each addition. Add the vanilla and instant espresso/water and mix well. Add the cocoa and mix on low until combined.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix on low speed until just combined (DO NOT overmix). Gently fold in the chopped white chocolate.
  3. Using a large tablespoon (or 2-inch ice cream scoop), drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, approximately 2 ½ tablespoons of dough per cookie, leaving at least 1.5 inches in between to accommodate spreading. With damp hands, flatten the dough slightly.
  4. Bake for exactly 15 minutes (cookies may appear underdone in the centre). Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, store in an airtight container. Enjoy!

Freezing Instructions:

If you won’t be baking this entire batch right away, you can store the prepared dough in the freezer to use at a later date. Simply follow the above instructions to the end of Step 3, then place the prepared baking sheet in the freezer. Once the cookies are frozen solid, transfer to a large freezer bag. When you are ready to bake them, simply take out the desired amount, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake from frozen for 16 minutes at 350ºF. Frozen dough will keep in the freezer for up to three months.

Remember, it can take anywhere between 60-180 minutes for you to begin to feel the effects of ingested cannabis and the effects may be felt up to 8+ hours after consumption. The JWC family reminds you to always consume responsibly.


These calculations are approximate and are based on our cannabutter recipe, which you can find here. Always consume responsibly.

Each cookie may contain ~10.9mg/THC.

With any cannabis-infused edibles, the general rule is to start with a low amount, and only increase slowly. Here at JWC, we would like to remind you that determining your dosage should be based on the information provided to you on your medical document. Do not change your dosage without first consulting with your healthcare provider. As always, make sure that your edibles are properly labelled and are stored out of reach of children and pets. When working with edible, cannabis-infused products, try to understand and maintain the ratios between the amount of cannabis and the butter or oil being infused. If your cannabis butter or oil is potent, consider reducing the amount used in your recipe by using a mix of infused and regular butter.
