How To Make Peppermint Candy Soap
What can be more fabulous than handmade soap to give as gifts! And a cute one at that!
The first step is to determine the amount of liquid the mold holds by filling a round mold with water and then pouring that amount into a measuring cup. Each soap cube equals 1oz. And each mold that I used contained 1/4 cup of liquid. 1/4c equals two fluid ounces. So two cubes melted equals 1/4 cup.
Next, cut the number of glycerine cubes needed and place into a microwave safe measuring cup. Microwave at 30 seconds, stir and then microwave at additional 10 second increments until soap is melted. Stir again.
Pour the red liquid soap into the molds and . . .
lightly mist with alcohol to remove any air bubbles.
Pour the white soap into molds and lightly mist with alcohol to remove air bubbles
Let dry for a few hours and remove from molds. Wrap each peppermint soap in cellophane to look like candy.
Secure ends with ribbon, tying in a bow. Cut off excess cellophane.
How cute is this! It's also a fun project to do with kids!
