Essential Oils: Easy Peppermint Fudge

Anne Hope and I have been prepping to teach a Girl Scout troop a bit about the benefits of essential oils.  We have put together several fun activities, a short slide show, and 2 great make & takes for the girls to mix.  It seemed the only thing missing was a yummy snack.  With a quick modification to a quick and easy fudge recipe, we have a delicious oily treat to share.

The directions really are simple:
1. Melt a full bag of chocolate chips. 
2. Stir in a jar of frosting. 
3. Add essential oils for flavoring.
4. Pour into 8x8 pan
5. Let set & cut to serve

I did use chocolate frosting this time, but when I make it again I will use vanilla instead for a creamier taste and a little lighter color.  I think it would also be delicious to try this recipe with white chocolate chips and orange essential oil.

We are going to serve our Chocolate Peppermint Fudge with a citrus flavored ice water.  Hopefully the tastes don't clash too much and give the girls a good idea about some of the ways essential oils could be used in our food too.

While I was feeling brave about mixing essential oils into our food, I also added a couple drops of lemon oil to our favorite hummus recipe.  Yum!  What have you cooked/baked with essential oils?
