This past weekend my beautiful niece was dedicated at our church. So after church we had a small BBQ and I thought, “What better time to try out some new recipes using my oils?” I had been pinning like crazy and needed to see if they were any good. The first one I made was peppermint fudge. Can you say, York Peppermint Patty? That is exactly what this rich deliciousness tastes like. I took some pics, just in case you want to try it for yourself.
First, you line a pan with foil and put non-stick spray on it.
These are the ingredients. That’s it! No joke. You need 3 cups of semi-sweet morsels, a can of sweet condensed milk and one drop of peppermint essential oil.
You put the morsels and condensed milk in a saucepan on low heat. Let it slowly heat up and melt the chips. You do not want to rush this or you will have burnt chocolate on your hands. Once the mixture is smooth you add the one drop of peppermint oil. One drop is really all you will need. It is some super potent stuff, so don’t overdo it.
You then press the mixture in the prepared pan, cover and stick it in the fridge for a couple of hours. Easy peasy. Once it is hard you can cut into small squares. I say small because it is very rich. You only need to eat a couple of these babies before you have had your fill, which is a good thing for me. If this was say, a tray of brownies, they would not last long in our house. Fudge, on the other hand, has a little bit longer shelf life here.
Well, I hope you are able to make yourself a batch and enjoy that chocolatey, peppermint goodness. Tomorrow I will try to post the recipe for the lavender lemonade that I made as well.
