A sinfully fat free way to enjoy the decadence of chocolate!
- 1 Cup Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)
- 1/2 Cup Citric Acid
- 1/2 Cup Corn Starch
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons Grapeseed Oil, or any light carrier oil
- 1-2 Teaspoons of Chocolate Fragrance Oil
- 3 Teaspoons Dark Brown Iron Oxide
- 2-4 ozs of Witch Hazel in a spray bottle
- Kiss Mold or plastic funnel – 2 ozs each
- foil & tags
Recipe makes approx. 12-14 (2 oz) bath bombs
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl until blended. We used a Magic Bullet™ to achieve an ultra fine mixture and an excellent blend of the brown oxide into the white powders. The finer the mixture is, the smoother the bath bomb will be. Return the blended dry ingredients to the bowl and add the grapeseed oil and chocolate fragrance in a drizzle throughout the bowl.
Start spritzing the witch hazel lightly over the entire mixture, being careful not to activate the citric acid too much. Continue to moisten the mixture until it sticks together easily. Start filling the mold/s, pressing firmly to fill all the gaps. Let dry several hours. Turn out the bombs and wrap in small pieces of foil with a gift tag. Drop in the bath for a delightful soak.
The Magic Bullet can be purchased at Walgreen’s Pharmacy or online.
Note: Kiss Molds are no longer available from the manufacturer. Hersey’s has a copyright
on that shape and sued them–We’re boycotting Hersey and all their products.
You can use a plastic funnel that has a similar shape and tape off the tip!!
