If you’re on the hunt for a super sweet homemade Valentine’s Day gift idea, this homemade chocolate truffle soap recipe is sure to delight. These melt and pour soap truffles are both fun and easy to make and are scented with a Chocolate Drizzle fragrance oil so they smell phenomenal.
Hunter, a friend and also the darling daughter of a friend, helped me make these sweetly scented candy shaped soaps. We used a Melt & Pour Chocolate Truffles Soapmaking Kit from Wholesale Supplies Plus for this project, but you can also buy the ingredients individually if you like or happen to already have some of the soapmaking ingredients handy in your stash.
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.
Homemade Melt & Pour Chocolate Truffle Soap Recipe
Recipe from Wholesale Supplies Plus
32 oz. Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base
4 oz. White Melt & Pour Soap Base
1 piece Brown Oxide Soap Color Bar
1 teaspoon Brown Sparkle Mica Powder
17.5 ml Chocolate Drizzle Fragrance Oil
2 oz. medium grain European Spa Salts (optional)
4 drops Stained Glass Santa Red Liquid Dye
Supplies & Equipment:
Cake Pop Silicone Mold
8 Clear 6″ x 3.75″ Poly Bags
8 Pink 6.5″ x 5″ Organza Bags
Cookie Sheet or Cutting Board
Glass Measuring Cup
plastic transfer pipette
Digital Kitchen Scale
Parchment or Waxed Paper
Place the silicone pop mold on a cookie sheet or cutting board. This will make it easy to move the mold once filled if needed.
Next, weigh out 6 oz. of the clear melt and pour soap base and cut into chunks. Place inside a glass measuring cup and melt in the microwave. Remove from microwave and add 1/4th of the brown color cube to the melted soap base, then stir until it dissolves fully.
Now measure out 1/4 teaspoon for the brown sparkle mica powder and stir into the soap until it’s fully blended. Using a plastic transfer pipette, measure out 3.5ml of Chocolate Drizzle fragrance oil and stir into the soap.
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.
Slowly pour the pink and white soap onto the tops of the truffles as desired. If you choose, you can also add either course grain salt or coarse grain sugar to the drizzle immediately after it’s poured. Allow soap drizzle to harden completely.
Finally, remove the truffles from the wax paper and place four truffles into each of the clear poly bags then inside the pink organza bags and gift!
