8 oz. cocoa
1 to 1 1/4 teaspoons
of fragrance (perfume fragrance oil or essential oil)
1 1/2 cups baking
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.
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 recipe can be
successfully halved to make fewer truffles.
