    Over xmas there will be too much movement and too many relatives for even the stealthiest vape at home. Hikes will become more common but for other times I'm thinking of preparing emergency edibles for 3 weeks or so when I won't be able to vape freely. I have about 5g of abv saved up.

    Soooo what shall I make? I can't do anything that will stink the house out, cooking in the oven with an extractor fan on may be ok as long as a noticeable green smell doesn't hang around longer than a few hours.

    Also it would be great if I could make one big batch and store them in a Tupperware for a few weeks, or do they need to be consumed immediately? I was thinking peanut butter firecrackers for this. I was also wondering if I could even get away with not heating abv firecrackers?

    Thanks!

    You could add your ABV to this recipe. I just made a batch myself, using decarbed high grade flowers, and it turned out awesome!

    I would recommend adding your ABV with the sugar., butter and milk.

    Easy Peanut Butter Fudge:

    1 lb box confectioners sugar
    2 tablespoons butter
    1/3 cup milk
    1 cup peanut butter

    Place sugar, butter and milk in a large mixing bowl.

    Cook in the microwave 2 minutes on high.

    Take out, beat ingredients with hand mixer until combined.

    Microwave 30 seconds more, then add peanut butter and mix until combined well.

    Spread in foil lined/wax paper 8 X 8 pan.

    Wow fudge sounds awesome I'd never even heard of it as a method before. For the quantities you've given would that be using the whole 5g abv and how many pieces would you slice it into?

    I'm assuming 30 seconds x 2 in the microwave wouldn't produce a smell issue? I test the recipe with no abv to see how long it keeps for. It will also look less strange to the family when I suddenly start keeping a crap load of homemade fudge at xmas.

    5 grams of ABV really isn't that much. Dosing is going to depend on what quality herb you started with and how dark it is. I usually make oil with my abv but the last time I made edibles with it, 5 grams wasn't even one dose for me. For comparison, I have a moderate tolerance, most of that abv was probably very high quality ak but it was all used in a solo and I hit it on 7 until it stopped producing vapor.

    I only used 7 grams of high quality flowers, decarbed before added to the recipe. If your ABV is only lightly vaped, it should work ok. You may just have to eat more fudge.

    I'd say its a mix of mids and some very high. However a lot of it isn't vaped too much because of not grinding it fine enough I was getting bits going very dark or even combusting while some bits remained green. Light brown on average. Using a leveled trench on a mflb I'll get two night's worth and so vape about half each time to get a 8/10. I could mix it with some unvaped but then I need to cook it more and risk smells.

    Well, I'll give it a go with the 5g (probably more like 6 now) and feed back how it went!

    Like @Vicki said it all depends on how well vaped your herbs are. Mine were pretty much completely vaped so if yours are much lighter you should be good.
