Total: less than 1 hour
10-20 minutes active time
5 minutes melting time
30 minutes – 1 hour cooling time
Money Spent + Supplies Needed:
Total for me: about $10.00 to $12.00 (approx. $1 per soap bar)
Glycerin Soap: $5.99 for 32oz. bag (Hobby Lobby)
Mold: $2.00 (Hobby Lobby)
Soap Scent: Free from using it in other projects but about $3.99 at Hobby Lobby (Use one that you think will go well with chocolate scent such as spices or cream scents)
Orange zest: about $3.00 at Hobby Lobby (if desired, comes with Lavender as well)
Also needed: glass or sturdy bowl to microwave in, Hershey’s cocoa, orange juice (if desired)
Step 6: Add in any other extra exfoliation that you want. I am using orange zest peel. If you want to keep the soap very chocolaty you may want to use something with less zing or nothing at all.
Note: Using glycerin soap helped me a lot! I am glad I did not have to mess with dangerous and risky lye because glycerin already has it in there! This recipe should be safe, quick, and fun for the whole family to make together!
Let me know how yours comes out!
