Infused Stir Sticks

Infused Stir Sticks

I love hot cocoa and Choffy and infusing them with essential oils is amazing. Infusing chocolates with essential oils is a fun way to change it up.


8 – 15 drops Essential Oils (see recommendations below)
6 oz Chocolate (White Chocolate, Almond Bark, Candy Melt)
Paper Sucker sticks

DirectionsMelt chocolate on half power for 1 1/2 minutes and stir. Continue on half power 30 seconds at a time until chocolate is melted.

Add in essential oils to taste.

Coat sticks with chocolate multiple times. Allow to set. Package each flavor separately.


10-15 drops Wild Orange

7 drops Spearmint, 7 drops Peppermint

6 drops OnGuard, 2 drops Cinnamon

4 drops Cinnamon, 2 drops Clove

6 drops Wild Orange, 2 drops Cinnamon

Pumpkin Butterscotch Streusel Muffins

I wanted to make pumpkin muffins for Halloween breakfast tomorrow, so I went to my storage room for inspiration. These turned out amazing!

WARNING: MUST USE BAKING CUP LINERS. Butterscotch may stick to the pan if you over fill the liners. I had 3 that I over filled and that stuck to the pan. I made a mess getting them out. They became our taste testing muffins.


1/2 cup Butter
1 cup Flour
2 boxes Spice Cake Mix
26 oz can Pumpkin Puree
4 drops doTerra Cinnamon Bark
2 drops doTerra Clove
12 oz Butterscotch Chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 24 cut muffin tin with baking cup liners.

In a small mixing bowl cut together butter, 1 cup of cake mix, and flour to create the Streusel. In a medium mixing bowl combined cinnamon and clove essential oils into pumpkin. Stir remaining cake mix into pumpkin mixture. Mix in Butterscotch Chips.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 the way full. Top with approximately 1 tablespoon Streusel. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove immediately from pan and place on cooling rack. Enjoy warm or cold.



Nanaimo Bars

I was introduced to Nanaimo Bars by Joseph’s Family. They quickly became one of my favorite desserts. Over the years I have used their family recipe, but after going to Canada, I knew I had some playing around to do. The filling in the Bun King Bakery Nanimo Bars were more creamy and fluffy and the chocolate top was smooth. We like adding essential oils to the filling as well.
