Strawberry & Chocolate Fudge Solid Sugar Scrub Bars Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients (fudge bottom):

2.5 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk melt & pour soap base
.35 oz. dark cocoa butter wafers
3.65 oz. refined shea butter
.5 oz. avocado oil
.7 oz. sweet almond oil
.5 oz. chocolate fragrance oil, or similar
16.5 oz. granulated white sugar

Ingredients: (strawberry icing):

1.25 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk melt & pour base
2 oz. refined shea butter
.6 oz. sweet almond oil
.25 oz. strawberries & champagne fragrance oil, or similar
8.25 oz. granulated white sugar
liquid red soap colorant, to suit

Instructions:

To create my strawberry and chocolate fudge solid sugar scrub bars, you’ll begin by making the fudge bottom and using those ingredients first. You’ll need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients as well as an Ozera 6-Cavity Rectangle Silicone Soap Mold or similar.

Begin by weighing out the dark cocoa butter wafers, shea butter and soap base in the amounts called for in the ingredients for the fudge bottom. Combine in a double boiler and gently heat until melted.

If you do not have a double boiler, you can use a microwave. You’ll need to combine and melt the dark cocoa butter and shea butter first at 40-50% power until mostly melted then melt the soap base with the butters the rest of the way. You do not want to overheat your ingredients so stopping and melting the ingredients as you go is also helpful.

Once melted remove from heat.

Now weigh out the avocado and sweet almonds oils along with the fragrance oil of your choice and stir into the melted butters and soap base.

Next you’ll want to weigh out the sugar into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Pour the sugar into the liquid mixture of oils, butters, soap and fragrance mixing as you go. Once thoroughly combined use a spatula to pour/spoon the mixture evenly into all six of the mold cavities. Flatten with the spatula. (Hint. Place your mold on a cutting board for easy transfer to another location later.)

The mixture will almost fill each cavity. This is what you want so you can build up an icing top.

While the bottom of your fudge solid sugar scrub bars are setting up, you’ll need to mix up the ingredients for the icing top!

Using a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients, heat and melt the shea butter and baby buttermilk soap base. Add the sweet almond oil and fragrance along with 2-4 drops of the liquid soap colorant. Then, just as you did with the fudge bottom, mix in the sugar.

Once the sugar is thoroughly combined you can begin spooning the strawberry “icing” top onto the tops of the fudge bottoms in your mold. Evenly add the mixture to the tops of all the mold cavities and then go back and spread the tops with a spatula or butter knife until the you reach your desired look.

(Hint. For a truer pink avoid using carrier oils that have a deep yellow or green tint to them if making substitutions for the sweet almond oil. You’ll also want to avoid fragrance oils with vanilla in them if you don’t want your tops to turn tan to brown over time.)

Sprinkle the tops with fine ground pink Himalayan salt and fine ground sea salt as desired. This is optional but I think it looks nice!

Now place your fudge solid sugar scrub bars in the fridge until they harden completely.

Once your strawberry and chocolate fudge solid sugar scrub bars have set up, carefully unmold them. Using a Chef’s knife, cut each scrub bar in half.

Then wrap each of the two halves in Kabnet wax – or similar grease resistant deli wrap – and tie off them off with baker’s twine. (Hint. Places like Sam’s Club sell Kabnet Wax.)

If you are making my fudge solid sugar scrub bars to sell rather than to gift or for personal use, then you’ll need to be sure to label the bottoms of these to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.
