Hot Cocoa And Marshmallows

Pairing cocoa and a Hot Cocoa & Marshmallows Bath Bomb sounds nothing short of heavenly! I know what you are thinking. Are those real marshmallows on the bath bomb? Yes!  They are real dehydrated mini marshmallows! You can find them in most grocery stores (look in the baking or coffee aisle) or from Amazon. They add a great touch to the bath bomb.

Bath Bombs Are Da Bomb!

The Hot Cocoa & Marshmallows Bath Bombs are made with coconut oil which is so good for your skin. Coconut oil has been proven to hydrate the skin for a full day and it also helps to improve skin elasticity. This recipe also makes use of a pantry staple, cream of tartar, which is great for reducing acne. Cream of tartar is powerful at pulling toxins from the skin and destroying bacteria for clearer skin all over.

Step 2: Mix in coconut oil, the polysorbate 80 and hot cocoa scent. I use my hands to be sure I break up all the clumps. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.

Step 3: Mix in the mica color, cocoa powder, and brown cosmetic glitter.

Step 4: Take one mold and fill each side with the mixture until it is a bit over-flowing. Press both sides together and gently tap each side and carefully remove the bomb. As you progress through making the bath bombs, you may need to spray them with the rubbing alcohol to moisten them, so they bind together. Dry a minimum of 24 hours.

Step 5: Place soap cubes into a microwave-safe bowl and melt for 30 seconds and stir. Continue to melt in 30-second intervals until completely melted. Using a small spoon, drizzle the soap over the bombs. Add a few of the marshmallow nibs to the top of the bath bomb, but do it before the glaze hardens.

Warm up with a hot cocoa and marshmallow bath bomb on a balmy fall day!
Prep Time10 mins
Active Time10 mins
Drying time1 d
Total Time1 d 20 mins
Yield: 5 bath bombs

Equipment

  • Bath bomb molds
  • Spray bottle
  • Mixing bowl
  • Microwave safe bowl
  • Small spoon

Materials

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 1/4 cup cream of tartar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon polysorbate 80
  • 1 teaspoon hot chocolate scent
  • 1 tablespoon Brown mica powder
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2-3 cubes white or goats milk melt and pour soap base
  • Dehydrated mini marshmallow nibs

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, and cream of tartar.
  • Add the mica color and cocoa powder. Whisk dry ingredients together.
  • Add coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so you bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!
     
  • Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.
  • Add the hot chocolate scent.
  • Mix the ingredients together. I use my hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is really mixed in there. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.
  • Take one mold and fill each side with the mixture until it is a bit over-flowing. Press both sides together, using a twisting/grinding motion to get rid of any excess mixture. Gently tap each side and carefully remove the bomb. As you progress through making the bath bombs, you may need to spray them with the rubbing alcohol to moisten them, so they bind together.  Allow the bath bombs to dry a minimum of 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the final stage…the glaze!
  • Place soap cubes into a microwave safe bowl and melt for 30 seconds and stir. Continue to melt in 30 second intervals until completely melted.
  • Using a small spoon, drizzle the soap over the bombs. Add a few of the marshmallow nibs to the top of the bath bomb, but do it before the glaze hardens.
