Melly Mel asked if there was a withdrawal patch for Recipezaar when she was going to be away for a while. I rushed in to provide this home remedy - but remember, this is not for long term use. You must return to Recipezaar as soon as your circumstances permit!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all in food processor.

  4. Secure with first aid tape.
  5. Refrigerate unused portion until needed.
  6. Make a new patch twice a day.
  7. Place the new patch in a different location to avoid localized irritation.

Worth five stars with the following adjustments: Use one jar of Nutella instead of chocolate, make sure you use unsalted butter, use shallots instead of onion, up the garlic to 3 bulbs, add the bitters to the evoo and finally do not apply the patch to the upper arm; it works much better when applied to the left cheek and I don't mean the one you apply blush to.
