Get ready for your best Easter Egg Hunt yet! Swap the usual boring Chocolate Eggs for these Glitter Egg Bath Bomb Melts. The Eggs fizz up when you throw them in your bath water and at the same time the cocoa butter moisturizes and nourishes your skin. Zero calories, 100 % fun!
What you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup
- 1/4 cup
- 1/4 cup
- 3 tbsp.
cocoa butter Edible glitter(optional)
- Essential oils (optional)
1. Mix your dry ingredients
Add your baking soda, corn starch and citric acid to a bowl. Give it a good stir with a spoon or whisk.
2. Melt your cocoa butter
Melt 3 tablespoons of cocoa butter in a double boiler or on a low setting in the microwave. Heat it up until all of the cocoa butter is melted. Set the cocoa butter aside and let it cool down a bit. It should still be liquid, but not so hot anymore.
3. Glitter it
While I waited for the cocoa butter to cool down, I glittered my molds. I used edible glitter (also called lustre). This is what LUSH uses as well. It’s the best choice because it’s the most environmental friendly when you flush it down your drain. You can find edible glitter in the baking aisle at larger supermarkets. Or, of course, online. What can’t you find online these days?
4. Add your butter
Slowly add the cocoa butter to the dry mixture. I added it 1 teaspoon at a time. Mix the cocoa butter in with a whisk or spoon. You want the butter to be distributed evenly, so watch out for lumps!
5. Fill your molds
The mixture should clump together when you take some in your hand and squeeze it.
Let the bath fizzies sit in their molds until the cocoa butter has completely hardened. I find it best to just leave them in there overnight.
I wanted my eggs to be super glittery so I added another layer. I put some glitter in the palm of my hand and rolled the egg in it. Then I patted the rest of the glitter on the bath bomb with my finger. I think it looks prettier this way but at the same time it’s also messier. So it’s your choice!
Enjoy your Easter approved bath bomb melts!
