To make mushroom chocolate, the first step is to grind the mushrooms until they are a fine powder. Next, add the mushroom powder to the melted chocolate and stir it thoroughly. Optionally, you can add dried rose petals to this recipe for a Valentine’s Day touch. Roses offer added health benefits and a delicate floral flavor to the chocolate.
Once the chocolate is mixed, remove it from the heat and add any other desired ingredients such as nuts or sprinkles. Finally, pour the chocolate into molds or a baking tray and put it in the fridge to cool and harden.

Note: Psilocybin is a Schedule I drug and creating mushroom chocolate can get you arrested, so it’s important to exercise caution and be aware of your surroundings when making this recipe. Also, unless you live in Denver or Oakland, it’s still totally illegal to consume magic mushrooms (even without cooking them).
A scale is highly recommended, as the amount of chocolate needed can vary greatly depending on your molds. It’s also a good idea to weigh your mushroom powder to make sure you’re getting a precise dose (although a gram is plenty if you’re a seasoned shroomer). The temperature of the chocolate needs to be kept very low as psilocybin degrades quickly in hot conditions.
