A top chef may soon be causing the munchies even as she satisfies them. Prominent Chicago chef Mindy Segal announced Tuesday she plans to create a line of cannabis-infused edible products for medical marijuana patients.

Segal, the owner of Mindy's HotChocolate restaurant in Bucktown, has agreed to make a line of products for Cresco Labs, which plans to operate three cultivation centers in Illinois.

Cresco says Segal is the first James Beard Award-winning celebrity chef to agree to bake for the cannabis industry.

Her first products will include a line of chocolate brittle bars, granola bites, hot chocolate and a cookie batter mix, playing off recipes from her book, "Cookie Love." The edibles should be ready by late February.
