|For me, Chocolate truffles are a rare treat, but they are some of my favorite candies. According to the dictionary, a chocolate truffle is a ball shaped candy made of soft chocolate and dusted with cocoa. One of my favorite chocolate truffles is a homemade Raspberry White Chocolate Truffle. Yum!
I had chunks left over after making the Raspberry Milk Soap and I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them other than use them! As I started thinking about what scents worked well with raspberries, I thought about the Raspberry White Chocolate Truffles we make occasionally at home. I decided that I wanted to make a batch of soap that used Cocoa Butter and was scented with Vanilla Cream.
Collect needed items:
*Precise weight of the soap shreds is not necessary.
Measure fixed oils on your scale. Warm the fixed oils on the stove or in the microwave. I melted the oils in the microwave. Add sodium hydroxide to the water. Mix well. Weigh the Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil in a beaker and set aside. Mix Titanium Dioxide and water and set aside. Measure soap shreds into a small mixing container.
Combine oils and lye solution. Mix until thin trace. Upon light trace, add the Vanilla Cream Fragrance Oil and Titanium Dioxide Color Mix. Mix completely and then add the soap shreds. Stir well. Pour soap into the desired mold I used a different style of the Guerrilla Mold from Dirk’s post. Allow to sit until soap is firm.
The next morning 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.
I can’t stop my mind from plotting different soaps to make that look like this! What would you make?
