What You’ll Need:
3 Medium 9 Ball Silicone Molds
14 oz. Shea Melt and Pour Base
7 oz. Clear Melt and Pour Base
18 mL Butter Mints Fragrance Oil
12 mL Vanilla Color Stabilizer
Brown Oxide Color Block
Electric Bubble Gum Color Block
Medium Pink Sea Salt
Dropper
99% Isopropyl Alcohol

ONE: Cut 14 oz. of Shea Melt and Pour Base and 7 oz. of Clear Melt and Pour Base into small, even pieces. Split the soap into 3 heat-safe containers, with 7 ounces of soap in each (2 shea and 1 clear). Place the clear soap in the microwave and melt using 10 second bursts, stirring in between each burst. Using short bursts prevents the soap from scorching.

TWO: Add shavings of the Brown Oxide Color Block to the melted soap until a rich chocolate color is achieved. Then, add 6 mL of Butter Mints Fragrance Oil and stir to fully incorporate.

ONETHREE: Slowly and carefully pour the brown soap into one of the Medium 9 Ball Silicone Molds and spritz with 99% isopropryl alcohol to disperse any bubbles.
Note: You can make the soap in batches if you only have one mold. After each batch has hardened and cooled, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap to keep it fresh and prevent sweating. Read more about how to store melt and pour soaphere.

FOUR: Place one of the shea soap containers in the microwave and melt using 10 second bursts, stirring in between each burst to prevent scorching.

FIVE: Add 6 mL of Butter Mints Fragrance Oil and 6 mL of Vanilla Color Stabilizer to the melted soap and stir to fully incorporate. Butter Mints Fragrance Oil discolors, so the Vanilla Color Stabilizer will prevent the white soap from turning tan. Read more about fragrance discoloration in this post.

FOUR2SIX: Slowly and carefully pour the white soap into one of the Medium 9 Ball Silicone Molds and spritz with 99% isopropryl alcohol to disperse any bubbles.

SEVEN: 
Place the last shea soap container in the microwave and melt using 10 second bursts, stirring in between each burst to prevent scorching.

EIGHT: Add shavings of the Electric Bubble Gum Color Block until a light pink color is achieved. Add 6 mL of Butter Mints Fragrance Oil and 6 mL of Vanilla Color Stabilizer to the melted soap and stir to fully incorporate.

THREENINE: Slowly and carefully pour the pink soap into the last Medium 9 Ball Silicone Mold and spritz with 99% isopropryl alcohol to disperse any bubbles.

FOURTEN: Allow the soap to fully cool and harden. This will take about 1-2 hours. When the soap is ready, press on the back of the cavities to release it from the mold.

FIVEELEVEN: Melt the remaining pink soap in the microwave on 5 second bursts. Let the soap cool to 130°F so it won’t melt the truffles. When it’s the correct temperature, select the truffles you want pink soap on and spritz them with alcohol. Then, drizzle the pink soap on with a dropper. You can put the pink soap on any truffles you like! We drizzled it on the white and brown truffles for a nice color contrast.
Note: If too much alcohol is spritzed on the truffle, the glaze can slide off. To prevent this, spritz the truffles lightly with alcohol.

SIXTWELVE: Quickly sprinkle medium pink sea salt on the top of each truffle. The soap hardens fast, so make sure to get the salt on the wet soap so it will stick. We had the dropper in one hand and salt in the other to make the process go a little bit faster.

SEVEN1THIRTEEN: Repeat this process with the remaining white and brown soap until all the truffles are decorated. There is no wrong way to decorate them, so have fun!
