Gift-giving is popular around the holiday season, and we all love something that is cute and simple that can be given to neighbors and coworkers. The easiest way to make something cute and simple is to put it in a nice-looking container. Abundant Health has lots of different containers that can transform your gift from ordinary to classy!


Not only do we have a few ways you can use our containers in gifts, but these recipes also include essential oils. You’re sure to be a hit when sharing these simple delights with an added twist of essential oils in every bite!

Ingredients & Supplies:

  • 1 can (14 oz./396 g) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups (12 oz./340 g) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 5 drops peppermint or orange essential oil
  • Mason Jar Mug or PET Jar for gifting

Instructions:

  1. Butter a square pan, and line with parchment paper. Set aside.

  3. Remove from microwave, and let sit 1 minute.
  4. Stir to combine until the chocolate chips are completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla extract.
  5. Pour fudge into prepared pan. Let cool all the way through before cutting (to speed up this process, you can place fudge in the refrigerator for 1 hour).
  6. Cut fudge into squares, and place them in a mason jar mug or PET jar. Tie a tag on with ribbon or string for the final touch.

Note: This fudge does not need to be refrigerated.
