I'm making lots of Christmas candy this year. One recipe I found is for Dark Chocolate Peppermint Truffles. It calls for mint extract. I couldn't find any, only mint candy oil. Is it the same thing? This recipe calls for a table spoon of mint extract.

lol I think it may be more concentrated, it is in a tiny little bottle and when I opened it Whoooowee! lol very minty. I just want to know how much I should use in replacement of a tablespoon of extract

Cool, thanks hun. I can't wait to try them out. Did you get the extract vs. oil thing figured out? Wish I could have been more helpful.
