Recipe Directions

  1. TE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. On a digital scale, weigh 6 oz. of Honey Soap. Cut up into small chunks. Place in glass measuring cup and heat in microwave at 30 second intervals until all soap is melted.
  3. Add 5 ml. of fragrance. Stir well.
  4. Add 24 K Gold Mica powder (about 1/2 tsp.) until desired color is reached.
  5. Place cake pop mold on a cookie sheet for added stability.
  6. Pour gold soap evenly between 3 cake pop cavities. Spritz with alcohol to pop any surface bubbles. Set aside and allow soap to solidify.
  7. Remove soap from mold once it has hardened. Chop soap into fine irregular shapes (cutting at an angle works the best). Set pieces aside for later.
  8. Weigh 14 oz. of Honey Soap. Cut up into chunks and place in glass measuring cup. Heat until soap has melted. Remove and stir soap to be sure completely melted.
  9. Add 13 ml. of fragrance oil and stir well.
  10. Add Matte Black Oxide Powder (about 1/2 tsp) until desired color is reached.
  11. Pour black soap into all 8 cake pop mold cavities, filling up to the first line. Spritz top with alcohol to pop any surface bubbles. Set aside and allow to set up.
  12. Reheat the remaining black soap in microwave at 15 second intervals until soap is melted.
  13. Heavily spritz the gold soap chunks with alcohol. Toss and spritz again.
  14. Spritz the tops of each soap-filled cake pop mold cavity. Pour the heated black soap into each cavity filling almost to the top.
  15. Drop some gold soap chunks into each cavity to create heaping piles of gold in each "pot".
  16. Measure 2 oz. of Honey Soap and place in small beaker. Microwave at 10 second intervals until all the soap is melted.
  17. Spritz the tops of each soap-filled cavity. Drizzle the melted honey soap on top to secure any loose gold soap chunks. Set aside and allow soap to solidify (about 30 minutes).
  18. Remove soap from mold. Using a soap cutter, cut a small amount off the bottom of each soap to create a flat bottomed "pot".
  19. Sprinkle some 24 K mica powder over the top of each "pot". This will make the golden nuggets sparkle even more.
  20. Package as desired and label.
