I had fun playing with soap making. I came up with chocolate chunk soap.
First you have to make the chocolate soap. I used a basic recipe and added some cocoa powder to it.
When I finished the soap and took it out of the molds, I cut it into bars and then chopped the bars into small pieces.
You have to use this soap as an additive within a few days or it won’t work.
I used half of the first batch to be my chunks in the second batch.
After cutting the soap, I put it by my workspace in the kitchen and prepared to make another batch of the basic soap.
I prepared my soap and when it reached trace, I added the chunks of chocolate soap slowly.
Then it was ready to scoop into the molds.
Once it’s in the molds, you just treat it like any other batch of soap.
When it was time to remove it from the molds and cut the bars, I was really anxious to see how it turned out.
I like the effect when I cut the bars.
I had two trays of soap and one two-pound loaf mold filled up.
The soap from the loaf molds was really nice. You get to see more of the chunks.
After it’s done curing, it will be added to my online market.
I really enjoyed making this one. I might try it again with different colored chunks. The possibilities are limitless!
