Replied to Mint Chocolate Truffles Recipe : Ree Drummond : Food Network

From what I understand, peppermint OIL and peppermint EXTRACT are two different things. I have used the oil to make rock candy at Christmas and it is VERY potent. Thinking it would give a much stronger flavor than the extract in this recipe, but would be easy to overdo. The oil also comes in spearmint flavor, cinnamon, etc. It is seriously very strong....

Perfect! I adjusted by subbing in 3/4 cup butter flavor Crisco for the shortening & butter, used less cloves. Didn't have allspice so put in a dab of pumpkin pie spice and a dab of nutmeg.

Could only find 16 oz. container...

I made this over the weekend and it has a great flavor. Usually Alfredo is so rich, I can only eat a few bites. This was much lighter. The recipe states 4 servings, but could easily make 6-8 servings. This would bring the calorie-count down a bit and a small serving was very filling. I baked a chicken breast and chopped it and added it to the sauce...

The only change I made to this recipe was to use 1/2 salted and 1/2 unsalted butter. Otherwise, I followed the instructions exactly, using my hand mixer as I don't have a stand mixer. It was all that I have been looking for in a frosting.

I made a double batch as I was afraid I wouldn't have enough to frost a two layer cake. I...
