Chocolate Bath Truffles
1 cup of Baking soda
3/4 cup Citric acid
1/4 cup of grated cocoa butter
1/4 cup of Cornstarch
1 tsp of cinnamon powder
1 tsp Chocolate flakes
15 drops chocolate fragrant oil
15 drops vanilla fragrant oil
200g of Dark Cooking Chocolate
Makes approx 10 truffles
These bath truffles look Divine and are fantastic for gift giving. They are a cross between a bath oil and a bath bomb but much more luxurious than either of them. The chocolate leaves your skin nourished and the smell is divine.
Mix all the ingredients together (Excluding the 200g of chocolate)Spray or drizzle the mix with a small amount of witch hazel or other moisture agent until it binds. Roll into small balls (like you would for real truffles)
Allow them to dry for 24hours.
Then take the balls and dip them into the cooled but still melted dark chocolate. Coat the balls quickly and set aside in the freezer until the chocolate sets. You can drizzle them with white chocolate or even coconut or chocolate sprinkles.
Finish off by placing them into truffle cases.
Add 1 truffle to running water for a lovely bath.
These truffles will last several months if not longer, but you will need to keep them wrapped up to avoid ants eating the chocolate coating. A cellophane bag would be sufficient.
