Chocolate Bacon Sweet and Salty Lip Scrub


    Date : 2014-05-06

    Introduction

    I love chocolate. Dark and bitter or sweet and milky. Today you can buy so many flavor combinations with chocolate, it is crazy. Chili peppers, almonds, macadamia nuts, cashews, caramel, toffee, coffee, cherries, blueberries, goji berries, green tea and more! It can be overwhelming to buy a chocolate bar. One of the crazier combinations that I have fallen in love with is a chocolate bar with bacon and a touch of sea salt. Talk about yummy!

    I created this recipe to mimic the sweet and salty flavor of my favorite chocolate bar with bacon bits. Try this recipe and find out why chocolate and bacon really do belong together!

    Comments

    The flavor of this finished lip scrub is perfect! When I was making it, I worried that I had too much salt or that I didn t have enough. It is so good, many of the pickier staff members have snagged a jar to keep in their pockets.

    Enjoy!
