Chocolate Chunk Cookie Soap, Day Two

Yesterday we made the chocolate soap that will provide the chunks for our cookie inspired soap. Now we will be making the “dough” part so we can have cookie soaps!

I wanted to make a soap that looked like a realistic chocolate chunk cookie, so I decided to use Vanilla Hazelnut Fragrance Oil to give the soap baked cookie scent and the brown discoloration that looks like a baked cookie. I’m also using Cocoa Butter to give the soap a chocolatey scent!

Let’s head off to the kitchen to make the rest of our Chocolate Chunk Cookie Soap!

*q.s. = Quantity Sufficient. This is an ingredient that needs to have the amount calculated to match the size of batch that you are making.

Making Soap:
Measure fixed oils on your scale. Warm the fixed oils on the stove or in the microwave. I melted the oils in a microwave. Add sodium hydroxide to the water. Mix well. Once the oils and lye solution temperatures have dropped to a lower temperature (my temperatures were around 120 degrees Fahrenheit), combine oils and lye solution. Mix until thick trace as this will help with the suspension of the chunks in the soap. Add the chunks of chocolate soap and stir until evenly mixed. Pour soap into the desired mold. Allow to sit until soap is firm. The next day cut into bars. Stack to allow good air circulation. Allow to cure for several days before using. Longer curing will result in a harder bar.

Soap Notes: Oh my! This soap smells like a lightly scented chocolate chunk cookie. The soap had a wonderful lather that was a mixture of big and small bubbles that I made just with my hands. I loved the feeling and light scent that the soap left on my skin after washing. (I’m sniffing my hands as I write this.) These soaps not only have a fun appearance, but are appealing to people of all ages and cultures!

I hope you get to try making these soaps because they will just fly off your shelves!
