This should be a happy blog for those of you who like chocolate, and who doesn’t?! With holiday party’s and events happening for the next 2 months, I’ve got a great idea for you to add into your holiday recipe file. Let’s start with adding 1 drop of Peppermint essential oil into a batch of mixed brownie batter. You can add more drops but our oils are really concentrated so I recommend just one drop. After you bake the brownies they will have just a slight flavor of the Peppermint and it tastes wonderful with the chocolate taste. You can also do this same thing with Lavender oil; this is really a unique taste, with Wild Orange oil, Cassia or Cinnamon oil, and Lemon oil. Some people like to make the brownies the regular way and then add the oils into the frosting that could go on top. And yes, some people frost their brownies! Another fun idea that has become popular is making essential oil infused fudge. I’ve tried fudge that has been flavored with Tangerine oil, Spearmint, Black Pepper, ( Really!! ) Grapefruit, Lime, and Wintergreen oils. You can blend some together to add your own special recipe to your event and I guarantee you will get lots of compliments and comments about this unusual, but fun addition. ~ Both of these ideas make great gift ideas and can be shared even after the holidays are over. I don’t know too many people who would turn down a flavorful brownie or piece of fudge if offered to them… I know I wouldn’t!
Happy Baking! Jana
