Firecracker Airfryer Edibles

Firecracker Airfryer Edibles

Firecrackers are a classic stoner treat, typically made with graham crackers and peanut butter. But due to the exodus of our American staff (good riddance) Critic does not know what graham crackers are – and does not wish to learn. Here they are with biscuits and nutella instead. The weed taste is minimal (as is the smell), you don’t have to fuck with butter and stovetops, and you’ll get a decent mellow body high for not much effort. 

Time to make: One hour TOTAL
Makes: 2 decent serves (4 smores)

You will need:

  • Small, shallow oven-safe dish (e.g. wee sauce dish)
  • Tin foil 
  • MARIJUANA (⅓ - ½ a fid), can increase based on tolerance
  • Arnott’s Nice Biscuits, or plain sugared biscuits (x 8)
  • Hazelnut spread (Nutella if you’re feeling fancy)
  • Jumbo marshmallows (optional but recommended)

Step 1: Decarb your weed
Airfryer temperatures can be VERY inconsistent – results will vary, but go low and slow. There’s definitely a joke to be made there but I’m too tired (or stoned from testing these, who’s to say).

  1. Place a few buds in your small dish and break the weed up with your fingers. You could grind or chop, but we want larger pieces with kief preserved. 
  2. Cover the dish completely in tin foil. Wrapping it all the way around helps trap the smell, too. 
  3. Put the covered dish in an air fryer set to 105C for 15-20 minutes. Older/dryer/smaller amounts of weed will take around 10-15 minutes. NOTE: If you know your air fryer runs hot or is dodgy, start checking after 10 minutes. Air fryers do take time to preheat (like ovens), and this is roughly factored into the above times. Temperature and time control are the most important part of making edibles, which air fryers lack – but you probably lack oven skills, so… 
  4. You’ll know the decarbing process is done when your weed is toasted, dry/crumbly to the touch, and slightly yellowed in colour – NOT burnt, brown or oily. If you overcook your weed, it’s not gonna work. Pro tip: compare with some of your untoasted weed from the same fid. If it looks the exact same, put it back in for a bit longer.
  5. When complete, crush decarbed weed into fine pieces with the back of a teaspoon. Use the same utensil throughout – most of the kief and good shit will get stuck to it. 

Step 2: Biscuit sandwich 

  1. Lay biscuits out (8 makes four smores), and spread a generous amount of Nutella on the non-sugar side of each. The fat in the nutella absorbs the THC, so we want as much as possible.
  2. Sprinkle your decarbed weed onto 4 of the 8 Nutella’d biscuits, dividing it evenly-ish inbetween. Use your teaspoon to gently mix the weed into the Nutella. Spread it evenly or you get a mouthful of grass. 
  3. Top off the sandwich by placing a plain nutella biscuit on top. 
  4. Wrap each of your finished smores in tin foil, once again enclosing all edges.
  5. Cook tin foil wrapped smores at 110C for 10 minutes.

Unwrap, let cool (or don’t be a bitch) and enjoy, OR

Optional: Top with toasted marshmallow
Smores are meant to have the marshmallow inside, but I haven’t figured that out yet. 

  1. Unwrap smores, and use a dab of nutella to stick a marshmallow to the top of each
  2. Your airfryer is probably still hot, and we just want to toast up the outside a bit. Cook at ~110 for 3-5 minutes, or until golden. 

Enjoy, and be responsible – wait about an hour before taking more. Get to know your air fryer, and play with the times and temps for different results.
