How to Make Firecracker Edibles
Firecracker edibles are one of the easiest and most delicious hemp treats you can make. Whether you are trying hemp for the first time or you're a seasoned hemp enthusiast, these firecracker edible treats are sure to delight your taste buds and keep you coming back for more. This recipe is also highly versatile, allowing you to easily substitute your preferred ingredients. This recipe will discuss how to make two equally scrumptious versions of this classic hemp-inspired snack and how a LĒVO infusion device can make the process easier.
Using a LĒVO Infusion Device to Make Firecracker Edibles
One of the three core ingredients in our firecracker edibles is dried ground hemp flower. Before making yourself a firecracker edible, you'll first need to decarb (activate) your choice of hemp. This process activates the potency of your herbs. Activating hemp flower manually can take time and the process is messy. In addition to being tedious, decarbing by hand can yield inconsistent results.
LĒVO devices simplify the decarbing process by activating hemp for you at the touch of a button. The LĒVO also has an infusion feature that allows you to create hemp-infused butters, oils, milks, honey and other useful concoctions. While you rummage through your pantry or run to the grocery store to gather the other ingredients you'll be using to make your firecracker edibles, your LĒVO device will be activating your hemp flower. Once your herbs have been properly decarbed, remove them from the LĒVO herb pod and sprinkle the desired amount onto your edible treats.
The LĒVO comes in three different models: the LĒVO II, the LĒVO C, and the LĒVO Lux. The LĒVO II is ideal for personal use and looks great in any home kitchen, while businesses commonly use the LĒVO C since it produces larger batches. The elegant LĒVO Lux has the same capacity as the LĒVO II but features a gorgeous metallic facade and DRY+ cycle, making it a perfect feature of culinary spaces.
The first step in making your firecracker edibles is to decarb your hemp flower. If you want to experience the plant’s psychoactive effects, activating the hemp is essential, though you can skip this step if you want to minimize or avoid these effects.

Firecracker Edibles Recipe
Many people enjoy making their hemp treats but cannot devote time to making complex hemp flower recipes. You'll love these super easy firecracker edibles if that's you. To make our recipe, you only need three ingredients and five minutes.
Our traditional firecracker edible recipe conveniently uses two common pantry staples: crackers and peanut butter. The peanut butter improves the absorption of hemp flower, making your edibles more potent, while the cracker acts as a vehicle for the other ingredients.

These treats combine sweetness with a hint of salt and the creaminess of nut butter with a crunchy base. They are naturally vegan and dairy-free and can easily be made gluten-free, depending on your dietary needs. Below, we will look at two simple variations of this delightful snack but there are unlimited substitutions you could try depending on your personal preferences.
¼ teaspoon activated hemp flower ground
1 teaspoon peanut butter
1 saltine cracker
¼ teaspoon activated hemp flower ground
1 teaspoon of hazelnut butter like Nutella or Nutiva (dairy-free version of Nutella)
1 wafer or cookie
Activate your hemp flower using LEVO.
Once it has been decarbed, you can grind it as finely as you prefer.
Spread your peanut butter, Nutella, Nutiva, or other nut butter on a cracker or cookie.
Sprinkle the finely ground hemp flower on the snack and enjoy!
The Base - While many hemp enthusiasts prefer saltines for firecracker edibles due to their texture and subtle salty flavor, you can use any similar food item for a base. Vanilla wafers, shortbread cookies, water crackers, and even toast can be used as a base for a firecracker edible. If you can spread nut butter on it, it's fair game!
Other Nut Butters - If you're allergic to peanuts, you could use practically any nut butter for your spread, including cashew butter, almond butter, and sunflower butter. The beauty of firecracker edibles is their versatility! If you don't particularly like the taste of hemp, we recommend using Nutella, Nutiva, or another spread with a lot of flavor to help mask the taste of the ground flower. No matter which spread you choose, we recommend using a nut butter or similar substance, if possible, as the fat content increases the potency and absorption of your herbs.
Hemp Flower - While many hemp edible recipes utilize infusions and extractions, people also consume hemp in ground form. Once you have decarbed your hemp flower, we recommend using a coffee grinder to grind it as finely as possible before sprinkling it on top of your edibles.
Dosage - If you are new to making your own hemp edibles, you might wonder how much decarbed hemp you should sprinkle on each edible. About ¼ teaspoon is considered a good beginner's dose. It's better to start small and gradually increase your dose than to begin with a dose above your tolerance level. If you're a more experienced user, you could add more. Start low and start small.
Storage - Decarbing hemp flower extends its shelf life, so you can store it for several months after activation. Be sure to place it in an airtight container and stash it in a cool, dark area to maintain freshness.
