Tub Truffles aka Bath Kisses

These are decadent little bath treats that just love your skin. Try one and you're hooked! Perfect additions for gift baskets... they'll ooh and aah!


8 oz. cocoa butter
1 to 1 1/4 teaspoons of fragrance (perfume fragrance oil or essential oil)
1 1/2 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid
1/3 cup corn starch


Melt cocoa butter in a small sauce pan. Add fragrance and mix well. Remove from heat. Add baking soda, corn starch and citric acid. Blend together well. Mixture will be a little "soupy". Carefully pour into chocolate molds using a teaspoon. Let stand at room temperature until they begin to set. Then place in the freezer for 30 to 45 minutes. To remove form the molds, place face down on a sheet of wax paper and hold your hand over the back until they release. If they don't release easily, place back in the freezer for a while longer and try again.

To use: add one tub truffle to an already poured bath.

Makes approximately 5 dozen truffles depending on the size of the mold.


The truffles must be molded as soon as everything is mixed. The mixture cannot be remelted because the corn starch begins to thicken thus making a crumbly mixture.

Avoid making your truffles too large as using one that's too large in the bath will create a "tub of sludge" and leave most of the "good stuff" in the bath tub after the bath.

The recipe can be successfully halved to make fewer truffles.
