Chocolate Chunk Cookie Soap, Day Two 7


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!

Collect needed items:

Recipe:

Recipe in ounces:
24 ounces Palm Oil
20 ounces Coconut Oil
16 ounces Olive Oil
4 ounces Cocoa Butter
9.21 ounces Sodium Hydroxide (6% Superfat)
24 ounces Water
0.8 ounces Vanilla Hazelnut Fragrance Oil
Recipe in grams:
680.4 grams Palm Oil
567 grams Coconut Oil
453.6 grams Olive Oil
113.4 grams Cocoa Butter
261.1 grams Sodium Hydroxide (6% Superfat)
680.4 grams Water
22.7 grams Vanilla Hazelnut Fragrance Oil
Recipe in Percentages
37.5% Palm Oil
31.25% Coconut Oil
25% Olive Oil
6.25% Cocoa Butter
q.s. Sodium Hydroxide (6% Superfat)
q.s. Water
q.s. Vanilla Hazelnut Fragrance Oil

*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!

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    I adore sweets, but I especially adore chocolate chip cookies. I will definitely be making these….but I want to make them round. I think a PVC pipe might be in the future of these cuties. Thanks Andee, I love this one!

        I was thinking that same thing. I was wondering if I could use individual round molds so the chocolates chunks would stick out of the top like a regular cookie. hmm.

          That might work…if the mold is designed to have the top of the soap be at the top. Most molds I can think of have the top of the soap at the bottom. Hmmm. Now I have to go see if I can find a mold that I can try this in!

    There’s a certain brand of greek yogurt cups that
    work great as round molds. Pop right out.
