Chocolate Without the Guilt

I never thought I could have chocolate without it going straight to my thighs! Well, here is Scrub-A-Dub Soap's brand new scent: Dark Chocolate Peppermint.

This bar was made with real cocoa powder, believe it or not (heaps of cocoa butter helps too!). That's right! Cocoa powder acts as a rich chocolaty scent for your soap and also gives it a rich deep chocolate color. For a 2 lb batch of soap, I use approximately 3/4 of a cup of dutch processed cocoa powder. If you desire more of a 'milk chocolate' scent, I recommend adding a few teaspoons of vanilla essential oil. A boosted extract could be used in place of the essential oil here, as pure vanilla essential oil is quite expensive. If you are overtaken by a spontaneous spirit, try adding some finely ground cinnamon!
