Whether you’ve been smoking for a while, or you’re new to the scene, chances are that you enjoy food – especially herbally infused food. Special brownies, gummy bears, banana bread…it all sounds amazing. We know that learning to start cooking with infused herbs is a daunting task, despite all the goodies promised. The recipes have words like “decarboxylation,” or require hours of cooking time just to get a meager amount of herb butter. It’s enough to scare any amateur chef away.
Well, you don’t need to rely on store-bought munchies any longer! The MagicalButter Herbal Infuser is on the scene, and it has revolutionized cooking edibles. This is a compact, self-cleaning legal smoking herb infuser, that’s perfect for creating butter and oils that will add punch to the recipes you already know and love.
All you have to do is combine your herbs with butter or oil inside the MagicalButter Herbal Infuser. Set the cooking time and wait. No need to watch it like a hawk; it does all the hard work for you. Once you’re done, you’ll strain the contents to ensure no stems or leaves remain in your finished product. If it’s oil, you’re done there. If it’s butter, you’ll place in a dish and leave it in the fridge until it solidifies. Then, cook like normal, starting with some of our easy edible recipes, of course.
Oh, and that scary word “decarboxylation”? Yeah, it does that by itself.

- 10 tbsp MagicalButter

- 2 organic eggs, cold
- Place oven rack one position up from the bottom, and preheat oven to 325F.
- Place all the ingredients except the flour into a large mixing bowl, and mix on low speed for 30 seconds; then set the speed to medium, and mix for 3 minutes.
- Reduce speed to low, and slowly add the flour.
- Once all the flour is added, stop the mixer, and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Then turn the speed back to medium, and mix for 30 seconds. (The goal is merely to incorporate the flour, not to overmix.)

- Remove from oven, cut, and serve!
Q. How do you make infused butter with a MagicalButter machine?
It’s so easy, you’ll never have an excuse to not have it on hand again. Place butter and your choice of legal herb inside the machine, and press the cooking button (about 2 hours). Wait, strain the contents, and place in the fridge for a few hours. Boom! You’ve got your infused butter.
Q. How long does a magic butter machine take?
It depends on the consistency of the butter or oil you’re using. Typically, the butter will take 90 to 120 minutes to become fully infused.
Q. Can I make my own herbally infused butter?
Heck yes, you can! Use any legal herb you enjoy. The process works the same no matter what you pick. You can even use the MagicalButter machine to make tinctures!
Q. What is decarboxylation?
Raw herbs can include an extra carboxyl ring. Decarboxylation is the process of removing this, using a combination of time and heat, to turn it into a purer substance. This is necessary to do properly, because doing it hastily can destroy the herb, making your food taste yucky. Don’t worry: the MagicalButter herbal infuser handles all of this for you!
Q. Can you use coconut oil in MagicalButter maker?
Yes, but because it is a thicker base, it will need to cook for at least 2 hours to properly create your herb-infused coconut oil.
