Magic mushroom chocolates are often referred to as “truffles” — but don’t get this mixed up with the mycelium bodies which were covered above that also goes by the name truffles.
Chocolate truffles are made by mixing the dry mushroom powder into a chocolate base. They’re popular as a way to mask the flavor of the mushrooms and make them easier to consume.
It’s also important to add the mushrooms while the truffles are cooling. Melt the chocolate separately, pour them into your chocolate molds first — and then mix the mushrooms into the chocolate. This ensures the mushrooms are never heated up — which destroys the active ingredients.
6. Make Scooby Snax (Capsules)
Mushroom capsules are the most common method of consumption for microdoses because it helps standardize the dose and allow you to add other ingredients to the mix.
The term “Scooby Snax” is used to describe a capsule formulation involving a small dose of magic mushrooms (less than 200 micrograms), align with other helpful ingredients such as ginger, L-theanine, L-tyrosine, 5-HTP, caffeine, or other ingredients.
You can get creative when making scooby snax, depending on what you’re looking to achieve. There are all sorts of recipes available online.
You can also make scooby snax capsules for standard psychoactive doses — just keep in mind you’ll likely need to take a few capsules at a time to reach the dose. A standard capsule holds a maximum of about 400 micrograms of dried mushroom powder on its own. Once you account for the other ingredients in the mix, this dose is even lower.
