This Valentine's truffle bath melts recipe makes wonderful heart shaped DIY Valentine's Day gifts for your special Valentine that smell like chocolate and roses! This bath melts recipe is super easy to make and only requires a few ingredients. Plus, you can use the same heart shaped mold to make several of my other DIY Valentine's day gifts.

Instructions:

This truffle bath melts recipe will yield four bath melts.

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the cocoa butter into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat at reduced power in the microwave until it has melted completely. (Alternately you can use a double boiler.)

Now use the measuring spoon to measure out a half teaspoon of the unsweetened cocoa powder. (You can use a full teaspoon of cocoa powder if desired for darker truffle bath melts and more chocolate scent.) Whisk into the melted cocoa butter using a fork or whisk until the cocoa powder has been fully incorporated and is free of any clumps.

Allow the mixture to cool slightly then weigh out the fragrance oil and add to the mixture. Mix well.

Next, place your heart mold onto a cutting board or small cookie sheet for easy transport.

Then pour the melted bath melts mixture evenly into four of the cavities of your heart silicone mold.

Using the cutting board for stability, transfer your mold to the refrigerator. Refrigerate your Valentine’s truffle bath melts until they’ve completely solidified.

Now prepare the “icing” for your truffle bath melts.

Weigh out .5 oz. of your natural white melt and pour soap base in a glass Pyrex measuring cup. (I use a natural soap base here as it cools and solidifies faster than a basic glycerin soap base with SLS.) Heat in the  microwave for 20-30 seconds, then remove and stir. Allow to cool slightly.

Now remove the bath melts from the refrigerator. Unmold and place them top up onto a cutting board or a cookie sheet. Now slowly pour the white soap base across the tops of the cold bath melts in small lines until you have reached your desired look.

Now prepare your pink “icing.” In the same container you used for the white “icing” weigh out .5 oz. of your natural white melt and pour soap base. Heat in the microwave 20-30 seconds until melted. Now add a pinch of colorant, if using a pigment powder for color, or a few drops of a liquid soap colorant to the melted soap base until you reach desired color. Stir well so the color is completely mixed into the soap base.

Now slowly pour the pink tinted soap base across the tops of the cold bath melts in small lines until you have reached your desired look. (The pigment I used for my truffle bath melts faded to more of a coral color so be sure to check with the manufacturer or company you purchase your soap colorants from to see if they fade or the colors morph in melt and pour soap.)

Now carefully remove your Valentine’s truffle bath melts from your working surface and package as desired.

To use, simply add one truffle bath melt to warm running bath water or massage onto skin in the shower or bath after bathing, rinse lightly and pat dry.

Hunter, a friend and also the darling daughter of a friend, helped me make these sweetly scented candy shaped soaps.

Package an assortment of truffles in a small box or inside pink organza bags to make them suitable for gifting to a friend or loved one. This recipe will yield 40 chocolate soap truffles.

Pour the soap evenly into all eight of the mold’s cavities so that each one is filled about halfway then allow the soap to harden completely. You can pop the mold into the freezer to expedite the process if you want. Once the soap has set up, remove from the mold and place onto wax paper. Repeat with the remaining clear soap base.

Now create the drizzle for the tops of the soap truffles by melting 2 oz. of white melt and pour soap base into each of the two beakers. You’ll leave one of the beakers with white soap. For the other add 2-3 drops of stained glass Santa red coloring and mix well. Allow the soap to cool slightly to make pouring easier.
