i altered a chocolate box that i got for christmas. my dh rolled his eyes a bit when i saved it. but i *knew* it would come in handy someday!
i made chocolate bath bombs using a truffle mold so they would fit inside perfectly. after they are used up i thought that this would be a great place for storing brads or eyelets.
1 1/2 cups baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid, powder
essential oils (5-10 drops)
fragranse oil (1-1 1/2 tablespoons)
Mix dry ingredients together.
Quickly wisk in oils
spray pam lightly in molds
pack in mixture VERY firm
let sit 20 minutes and gentle tap out.
above is a very basic recipe. there are MANY others and most of them work. if you live in a very humid area these will not set or start to foam in the bowl. i added 1/4 cup of cocoa powder into the dry mix as well as hot chocolate fragranse oil. i use www.coastalscents.com for all my bath bomb supplies.
candy molds can be found at michaels.
