Have you ever had tiramisu? This decadent Italian dessert is made of coffee-soaked sponge cake layered with a whipped custard of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese and dusted with cocoa. Can you give a deep longing sigh with me? I think I’m hungry now!
So how did I make this Ultimate Tiramisu Lip Balm?
It all started with the new Cheesecake Flavor and my experimenting to discover a blend that could use this yummy flavor. I started thinking about creamy desserts. Flan, custard, eclairs, créme brulée , tiramisu… Wait! Tiramisu has coffee. I like coffee! Tiramisu has cocoa. I love chocolate! That’s it. I’ve made my choice, I’m making a tiramisu lip balm.
Let’s go make this delectable lip balm that (hopefully) will taste like tiramisu.

Weigh all of the ingredients except the flavor into a microwave-safe container. Gently melt using short time bursts until most of the ingredients are melted. Melt the remaining chunks of Beeswax and Cocoa Butter by stirring the mixture.
Add the flavor and color if desired. Once the flavor has been mixed in, fill your containers. After the lip balms have cooled, cap the containers and label.
