My chunky homemade vanilla and chocolate soap smells good enough to eat… A must for all chocolate cookie lovers!
You will need one or two bars of the chocolate bar soap from my goat’s milk soap recipe, but don’t let that put you off as the chocolate goats milk soap is so lovely and moisturizing on its own, well worth having a go at.
The vanilla fragrance oil in this recipe gives the soap a very pale cream color.
I’ve also tried it using white chocolate fragrance oil instead of vanilla, but it can turn the soap brown which kind of misses the point, so do check with your supplier first.
I’ve used individual molds for this recipe but it works just as well in a loaf mold.
- 24 oz (680g) Olive Oil
- 8 oz (227g) Palm Fruit Oil
- 2 oz (57g) White Beeswax
- 10 oz (283g) Distilled Water
- 4 1/2 oz (127g) Lye (Sodium Hydroxide/Caustic Soda)
- Chocolate goat’s milk soap bars
- 4 teaspoons of vanilla Fragrance oil
Watch How To Make Basic Cold Process Soap
Before you make this soap, take a few minutes to watch the video below for the basic method. For more detailed information see how to make cold process soap at home.
Use the cold process method plus the following recipe specific steps:
- In Step 5 – Add the fragrance oil at light trace and then bring the soap mixture to a heavy trace to avoid the chocolate chunks sinking straight to the bottom.
- In Step 6 – Pour (spoon or push) the soap into molds and then add the chocolate chunks, you may need to manipulate the chunk a little into various places.
- In Step 6 – Finish by leveling out the soap as best you can, a quick shake or tap usually helps but don’t get too hung up on it as you can always give the soap a trim once it has set.
