|Here at MMS, most of us really enjoy chocolate and for good reason! Chocolate is one of the most popular flavors across the world. I can’t forget the wonderful benefits of chocolate either! The two main alkaloids in chocolate, theobromine(thē’ō-brō’mēn’) and phenylethylamine(fěn’əl-ěth’ə-lə-mēn’), have positive effects on the body. They have been linked to lowering blood pressure and raising serotonin levels in the brain (these are the chemicals that help make you happy). Chocolate even has a good number antioxidants to help fight free radicals. Of course, dark chocolate is more beneficial than milk chocolate. I could obviously talk about chocolate for pages, but I won’t. Instead, I’m going to talk about making a Melt & Pour Soap that looks like fudge and naturally smells like it too!
Collect needed supplies:
Weigh Melt & Pour Soap Base into a container for melting soap. I placed my soap in a 2 gallon soap bucket and melted the soap in the microwave. It took about 10 minutes to melt the soap. Once the soap was melted, I used the immersion blender to mix the fragrance oil into the soap. Then I added the Brown Oxide Color and blended until I couldn’t see any more lumps of color. I added the Silver Mica to help add a light catching texture to the brown color.

That looks delicious! I’ll bet they smell great too.
Oh my, these smell so yummy! This smells just like the fresh home-made fudge that my family makes every year for Christmas! I can’t wait to get the samples out to the shipping department!
I can’t wait to try this recipe! I’m having a problem seeing the text due to the overlay of the subscription, archoves and other type! How can I get rid of the overprint and see the vital recipe info? Thanx
