Tips When Using Essential Oils
Make sure you use top quality essential oils that are food grade only. There are some great brands on the market and the flavour is unbeatable. I much prefer to use a food grade essential oil than an extract, however the extract will still work well if that is all you have.
This fudge will last up to one week in your refrigerator or up to 2-3 months in your freezer. Just make sure you store in an air-tight container.
