Peppermint Fudge with YL Peppermint Vitality Essential Oil
Attention all CHOCOLATE LOVERS! This fudge is AH-mazing. Seriously. I’m not a huge fan of chocolate. Did I just publicly post that fact to the world?! Yes, yes I did. HOWEVER, I am in love with this fudge. It may be the end of my hanging-on-to-the-last-thread-of-skinny-life days. Guess what else? It has Young Living’s Peppermint Vitality™ Essential Oil in it. Yep. The perfect, subtle, healthy addition to this fabulously easy fudge. FYI, I did not come up with this. Some sweet, incredible YL oiler somewhere out there did. I do not take credit for this. The entire recipe is at the end of this post. Let’s get to it, Shall we?
For the first step, combine your can of sweetened condensed milk with 3 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips in a pot and turn on low heat until melted.
I like pictures in recipe posts. It lets me know I’m on the right track, how about you?
Once fully melted, it will look something like the image below. I thought I was going to end up with something very liquidy… that’s totally a word. This is why I like photos.
Boom! Perfection right there. NOW let’s add that Peppermint Vitality™ oil. Remember to remove from heat and then add your drops. I use all 7 drops in the recommended drop range.
Stir it in well and get out your 9×13 pan. Cover it with tinfoil. Grab that coconut oil and slather it across the pan.
Once you’ve got a layer of coconut oil on that bad boy, plop that yummy fudge mixture right on top.
Use a spoon to pat the fudge down flat and spread across the whole pan and place in the fridge. I cover mine with wax paper, mainly because I’m a weirdo and feel like things can get into it if it’s not covered. So do your thing.
Once you’ve let them chill for 2 or more hours, take them out and flip the pan over on top of the wax paper. Now you can easily pull the tinfoil off. I usually let the giant fudge square sit on the counter for a few minutes so it softens up a bit for easier cutting. I use a pizza cutter. I’m all about what’s quickest and easiest. Once you’ve cut your peppermint fudge squares of delight, you can put them out to serve immediately or place back in the fridge for serving later or if you’re like me and my husband, so you can graze now and then. 😉
A great idea for those of us who LOVE sharing YL oils with others, is to put a few pieces in a little baggie tied with ribbon, a recipe card and Peppermint Vitality™ oil sample. This is also a fabulous idea for little holiday goodies.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as we do! Here’s the recipe graphic.
