A different recipe today...not one you can eat but a perfect homemade gift for the holidays!
Small metal tin
Peppermint extract or essential oil
Melt the petroleum jelly in either a microwave safe container or by putting the jelly in a plastic bag and submerging into hot water. In a small bowl, mix together the jelly and cocoa. The amount used is up to you to achieve the flavor and color you prefer. Add three drops of peppermint. Pour the liquefied jelly in to a small metal tin. Allow to set for at least three hours.
