How To Make Mushroom Chocolate at Home

What better way to transform the not-so-tasty magic mushroom into a sweet chocolatey delight than by making mushroom chocolate? 

If you’ve ever eaten shrooms, then you can attest that they have a rather unpleasant flavor and texture. Of course, this doesn’t in any way affect their medicinal value, but people can be discouraged from benefiting from their worth because of their taste.

In this article, we’ll show you how to use chocolate to make magic mushrooms into a delicious wonder. The most exciting part? You can get it done at home!

Health Benefits of Chocolate

One major ingredient in chocolate that is responsible for its health benefits is cocoa. Pure cocoa creates similar results in our body and mind as magic mushrooms, however, at lower levels. As such, the effects of chocolate can include: 

  • Reducing stress levels: Cocoa influences our serotonin system to reduce stress levels, which causes a greater feeling of tranquility.
  • Combating depression: Because it activates oxytocin (or the love hormone) in our brains, chocolate functions as a natural antidepressant.
  • Stimulating the central nervous system (CNS): Chocolate contains theobromine, which improves blood flow in the muscles. This, in turn, enhances alertness, cognitive function, and the delivery of oxygen to the brain. 

Chocolate + Magic Mushroom: How Safe Is It?

Chocolate made from pure cocoa functions as mild monoamine oxidase inhibitors or MAOIs. Many antidepressants are MAOIs, which prevent the removal of serotonin and dopamine from the brain. As opposed to mixing stronger MAOIs with shrooms, which can have some unpleasant results, chocolate is safe to use with magic mushrooms. 

Most of the chocolates you’ll find at stores today are made from refined cocoa. To get the best mushroom chocolate, it is ideal to use some raw cocoa.

Before Getting Started: A Note On Psilocybin

The psilocybin in mushrooms doesn’t do well with heat. In fact, it begins to break down around 70°C, which can ultimately ruin its effect. Irrespective of what you want to cook or prepare, you shouldn’t go beyond this temperature.

The best way to preserve psilocybin is to cook any ingredient that needs heat first and add mushrooms after the heat is gone. So, whether it’s tea you want to add your shrooms into, ensure the water is cooled off first. Similarly, for mushroom chocolate, it’s best to melt the chocolate and then add shrooms when the heat is gone.

How To Make Magic Mushroom Chocolate

Once you have your ingredients set, magic mushroom chocolate is pretty easy to make. Here are the resources you’ll need and how to get it done.

Ingredients and Equipment

  • Cracker-dry magic mushrooms
  • Bars of your favorite chocolate
  • Raw cocoa (optional)
  • A glass or metal bowl
  • A large saucepan
  • Stirring spoon
  • A coffee grinder or sharp knife
  • Baking tray (non-stick)
  • Candy or alcohol thermometer (optional)


  1. Cut or grind the mushrooms into smaller pieces. The smaller they are, the better.
  2. Break your chocolate into smaller chunks and place them in the glass or metal bowl.
  3. To melt the chocolate, pour some water into the saucepan. Then, transfer the bowl with the chocolate into the pan, and ensure there’s about an inch or more space between the water and the base of the bowl.
  4. Bring the saucepan to boil over low heat so that the steam will cause the chocolate in the bowl to melt. You can aid the process by gently stirring the chocolate with a stirring spoon.
  5. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate by placing the bowl in a microwave and heating it at intervals of 30 seconds so it doesn’t get burnt. 
  6. After melting the chocolate, allow it to cool down to below 70°C. You can use a candy or alcohol thermometer to ascertain the temperature.
  7. Once the chocolate is below 70°C (and still liquid), add the ground mushrooms and the cocoa powder.
  8. Stir the mixture until the content is evenly distributed.
  9. Scoop out the mix in molds onto the baking tray and place in the fridge to cool.
  10. Once it’s cool and solid, your mushroom chocolate is ready to eat!

Tip: You can also make magic truffles chocolate by following the same process for mushroom chocolate. Additionally, any extra flavoring you want to add should be oil-based and melted separately so it’s easy to mix.

Carefully Dose Your Mushroom Chocolate

In practice, it is a bit difficult to tell the exact dose of shrooms in your chocolate. However, a good rule of thumb is to use one dose of mushrooms for a portion of mushroom chocolate. You can then scale it up based on the number of times and the number of people who would eat the shroom chocolate.

If it’s your first time trying this recipe out, it’s advisable to go even lower with your first dose. Over time, you’ll know the dosage that best suits you.

Mushroom Chocolate Effects  

Magic mushrooms are known for the euphoric high they cause. As such, you should expect the psychedelic and relaxing effect of the shrooms after eating the chocolate.

However, it typically takes about 30 minutes for the effect to kick in. In fact, some varieties of mushrooms can take up to 45 minutes to 1 hour before you feel anything. Therefore, it is best to wait at least an hour before eating more magic chocolate.

How Long Do Magic Mushrooms Last?

The truth is that the lifecycle of mushroom chocolate depends largely on how you store the chocolate. If you seal it and store it in a cool and dark place, it can last up to a year while retaining the psychoactive properties of the shrooms.

Fun fact: While chocolate could have a funny taste with time, it never really spoils.

Go Create Magic!

Making magic mushroom chocolate is an easy, delicious, and rewarding journey to embark on. Moreover, the raw cocoa further enhances the stimulating effect of the shrooms.

Note that this recipe is just a foundation. You can explore the addition of other ingredients like nuts and dried fruits. So, if you love chocolate and also want to try magic mushrooms, what are you waiting for? Go create magic today.
