Just had to share this lushish looking bath truffle that I made!
Very easy to make. I scented these goodies with Rose FO and Rich Dark Chocolate FO.
I was inspired by Sarah Milroy
at 'Spicy Pinecone'.
All you need is some inspiration, and a few ingredients.
10 oz baking soda
5 oz citric acid
6 oz hard butter such as Cocoa Butter
And .35 oz fragrance oil of you choice
Weigh out baking soda and citric acid and mix well. Make sure you get out all the clumps.
Melt your hard butter in a double boiler, or in the microwave using 30 second bursts.
Add coloring to your hard butter along with the fragrance oil.
Sarah Malroy said to be careful with using mica's for colorant. You can, but use very little because it will stain your tub.
Mix the butter into the dry ingredients until well blended. Pour into mold of your choice.
I used a silicone brownie bits mold.
Set aside and let harden over night.
Next day you make a fourth of the recipe above. You don't have to scent it if you don't want to. You can color this as well with a bit of TD or any other colorant.
Here is where you'll have to work fast. Pour the mixture into a pipping bag (or a zip lock bag) and get the mixture down to the tip and very carefully snip a small part of the corner off. Pipe the mixture over the truffles and add what ever you want in the top. I added a glycerine soap melt and pour rose.
Let dry for 24-48 hours. Then drop one in a tub of hot water, and enjoy!
Use caution when getting out if the tub, as it may be slippery!
They look sooooo good! Good enough to eat! But please.......don't! Lol
If you need a better picture of the whole process you can watch Sarah Milroys YouTube on making Bath Truffles - Day 1 and Day 2.
Have a great weekend!
