hi Janelle...im sure you can double or triple the recipe if you want,but there seems to be a small window of time to dip the berries if you wanted alot,this recipe may be best suited to mold candy or lollipops. you may need to rewarm if it gets too hard,too fast.hi queenfluff...i used young living brand peppermint essential oil supplement.it says for dietary use,(for digestion)im not sure about the fresh leaf as it may alter the color if it adds green and the water from the strong tea may not mix well with all the fats in this,however i have not tried this.if anyone experiments,let us know!

For the peppermint - is it just peppermint flavoring? Not essential oil right - I don't think those are safe to ingest. Can one use fresh peppermint leaf or strong peppermint tea?
