How to make truffle bath melts?

As we do every year, a few weeks ago we began wondering what recipe to offer you for Valentine’s Day. We quickly concluded that love, in all its forms, should be celebrated every single day of the year with the same enthusiasm.

All of the recipes in this blog can be used to make gifts for either yourself or the people close to you, and this recipe is no exception: today you can offer a bath treat to that special someone who makes you feel good. A moment of relaxation for your best friend – you know, the one who is always there during tough times and ready to participate in your craziest adventures. A “me-time” break for that family member who insists you can achieve anything you set your mind to and is always there to support you. Or a reward for your greatest ally: you!

Ingredients

Basic recipe

Additions depending on your chosen recipe:

Flowers

Tools

  • 1 double boiler large enough to hold all ingredients
  • 3 containers for dry ingredients

  • 1 silicone ice cube tray (regular or fancy)

Steps to follow

  1. Prepare and sterilize your equipment and workspace.
  2. Weigh butters and oils and melt slowly in the double boiler.
  3. Meanwhile, weigh dry ingredients in separate containers.
  4. Weigh aromatic essences or essential oils in a ramekin.
  5. Once the butters have melted, remove from heat and add the fragrance blend. Stir well.
  6. Add, in this order, the baking soda, corn starch, colloidal oatmeal, and citric acid. Before adding each new ingredient, mix with the spatula to make sure everything is well blended, making sure not to overdo it. The paste should have the texture of moist, lumpy cookie dough.IMG_3726
  7. Place a pinch of flowers in the bottom of each mold before spooning in the paste. Press gently with your fingers to pack it down.IMG_3728
