How to Make Chocolate Edibles with Coconut Oil
Who doesn’t love chocolate, and who doesn’t love a good edible? This chocolate edible recipe will have you feeling good and craving more! And the best part is that the recipe is easy to make, especially when you use the LEVO II to infuse your coconut oil with hemp flower.
The Benefits of Infused Oil
One of the best ways to incorporate more herbs into your food and other goods for your wellness is to infuse them into oils and carriers without having to worry about consuming the herb in its natural form. Infused oils have become more popular as people have taken their wellness into their own hands. Natural foods stores across the country are selling infused oils, butters, and other goods, but many of them can run you a pretty penny. Enter LEVO II.
You no longer have to worry about trying to simulate all the steps of infusing herbs into your liquids manually or routinely paying high prices for pre-made infused oil and butter. The LEVO II is a unique, one-of-a-kind device that infuses oils, butters, milk, honey, glycerin, and more.
The LEVO II comes in five different colors: black, green, cream, red, and blue, and its sleek design will be sure to look great on your kitchen counter with any aesthetic. The device features push buttons and a sleek, clear, digital screen that makes its functions easy to read and easy to use. And the best part? The steeping infusion process is entirely automated.
Cleaning is easy; just wash four small parts (the reservoir, the herb pod, drain tube, and the silicone stirrer) with soap and water or in your dishwasher.
We believe so highly in the LEVO II that if for some reason, you’re not satisfied with it, we’ll refund the purchase price as long as you return it within 30 days of delivery. Additionally, the LEVO II includes a one-year limited manufacturers’ warranty.
Infusion is made easy with this affordable, non-toxic, and dishwasher-safe device.

What You'll Need
Infused Coconut Oil
Take your medicinal flower or favorite hemp and place it into the LEVO herb pod. There’s no need to grind it, but if you choose to, be sure not to grind it too finely. It needs to be coarse enough not to seep into your oil. Coarser herbs also infuse better.
Place the LEVO herb pod into the LEVO II reservoir.
Measure 16 oz. of coconut oil. If the coconut oil is solid, as is common, you can use a kitchen scale to measure out 16 oz. or 2 cups.
Place the measured coconut oil into the LEVO II reservoir with your flower. Close the LEVO II lid.
Using the time and temperature calculator on our site, set the temperature on your LEVO II to 160-175 degrees Fahrenheit. Infuse your coconut oil in the LEVO II for 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the time suggested for medicinal hemp on the time and temperature calculator.
Using the LEVO herb press to squeeze the extra infused oil from the medicinal flower or hemp, pour your warm infused coconut oil into a container. Be sure the container has a proper seal so that the coconut oil won’t spoil.
Keep your infused coconut oil in your cabinet, or you can freeze it.
Chocolate Edibles with Medicinal Hemp-Infused Coconut Oil
Using a double boiler, fill the bottom pot with 1 cup of water. Boil water on high heat.
Set the heat at medium-low to low, and place 2 cups of chocolate into the top double boiler pot. The steam from the bottom of the double boiler will melt the chocolate above.
Gently stir as the chocolate begins to melt, and continue stirring occasionally while the chocolate melts, for about 5 minutes or until the chocolate is fully melted.
Add 4 tablespoons of your flower-infused coconut oil to the pot with the chocolate. (If using the Levo Herb Blocks, use 1 and ⅓ blocks of oil.)
Continue stirring until the mixture is completely melted and combined.
Remove the pot containing the chocolate from the pot containing the boiling water and set it aside.
Pour or scoop the chocolate out of the pot into your molds. You can use whichever molds you like, we love our Gummy and Candy molds. To remove any air bubbles from your molds, gently tap the molds with your hand or against the counter.
Place molds in the freezer or fridge for approximately 15 minutes.
After the molds set, remove your flower-infused chocolates from the molds and place them in your desired storage container or a ziplock bag. To keep fresh, store the chocolate edibles in the fridge or freezer.
- If you molded your flower-infused chocolate edibles and keep them refrigerated or frozen, DON’T melt them in the microwave. Melting your chocolate will ruin the potency of the medicinal flower that you infused in your coconut oil.
- If you notice your chocolate chips aren’t melting entirely, don’t worry. Many chocolate chips do not melt completely and may maintain some of their shape.
- Don’t rush the melting. Your chocolate should melt on medium-low to low heat so that the chocolate doesn’t turn out clumpy and dry.
