Chocolate Kiss Soap

A great quick and easy M+P soap for the holidays.

This is reprinted from Soap Crafters:

How to Make a Chocolate Kiss Soap

Chocolate Kiss Soap Recipe

An awesome way to indulge in chocolate without any of the calories or guilt 

You will need:

- Either a Tupperware chocolate kiss-shaped funnel 
(widely available on E-bay)

a plastic Hershey's Kiss filled with little Hershey's Kisses 
(available in the grocery store)

opaque melt and pour soap base

- cocoa powder
coconut oil
Soap Crafter's Chocolate fragrance
cocoa butter
- Really cheap aluminum foil, foil candy wrappers or silver foil wrap 
(the last 2 are available at restaurant supply stores) 
How to:
First, prepare your mold:
~If you are using the funnel for your mold, close up the small end with some caulking, duct tape or I have found that a piece of bubble gum works really well.(I soak it in water to soften it up and then apply to the opening and let it dry)
~ If you are using the plastic Hershey's kiss, drill a 1/2 inch hole in the bottom (wide part) of the plastic kiss. 
Second, prepare your soap:
~if you are using the funnel, you'll need to melt about 8oz of soap
~if you are using the plastic kiss, you'll need to melt about 6 oz of soap
Chunk up the soap and put it into a 2 cup glass measuring cup. Add about 1 tsp of cocoa butter (this will melt while your soap melts) 
Third, prepare your color:
Melt 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in the microwave. To that, stir in 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.
Next, finish your soap.
Stir in cocoa powder/oil mixture and 3/4tsp of chocolate fragrance into your soap base. Set the funnel or plastic mold into a cup to secure it. Pour your soap into the mold and let it set up. For easy removal, put the mold in the freezer for 1 hour after the soap has set up. 
Wrap in foil.
