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)
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.
that looks like so much fun. and pretty, too!
This recipe is a keeper! :) That would be fun to make.
