First, you are going to create the melt and pout peep bunny soaps. These will be used to top the cold process soap that you will be making some later steps. So, before you begin the portion of the recipe that deals with the cold process soap you will be creating eight bunny peeps with melt and pour soap. When the time comes, you can choose to have two of each color or have a different color combination off peep bunny soaps. But, we will provide the amounts needed to achieve the correct colors. So, lets start with the melt and pour.

Peeps Cold Process Soap Recipe Melting the Soap

Now, you are going to melt the soap needed to create the bunny peep soaps. Since each peep will require 40 grams of melt and pour soap and we are creating two at a time, we will begin by melting 80 grams of the Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap. Melt this in 30 second increments. After you color this portion of your soap, you will melt three additional portions in their own bowls to be colored.

Next, you can add the color and scent to your melted soap. Take the melted 80 grams of Oatmeal Melt and Pour Soap from the previous step. Add 4 grams of the Yummy Gummy Fragrance Oil and the colorant of your choice. Depending on you decision, you will use 2 grams of Neon Pink, 2 grams of Deep Purple, 2 grams of Neon Blue, or 1 gram of Neon Yellow. You can either do a set of each color, or pick your favorites.

Once you have repeated these steps to get eight filled bunnies, then its time to move on to the next step.

White Chocolate Fragrance OilWhite Chocolate Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

White Chocolate Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is a creamy, decadent white chocolate scent that is simply mouthwatering.  It’s difficult to resist the allure of rich white chocolate!  Did you know? White chocolate, while being a chocolate derivative, is not actually chocolate in the strict sense.  White chocolate contains no cocoa solids, which are the chocolate brown particles left behind after cocoa butter is extracted from cacao.  Despite this difference, White Chocolate is still a wildly popular confectionery treat and makes for a wonderful fragrance oil!

What Does White Chocolate Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

White Chocolate Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is a delightfully rich true-to-name fragrance that bears the aroma of white chocolate.  This scent is comprised of creamy cocoa butter, marshmallow, meringue, white chocolate, and vanilla beans.

Soap makers can use 5% fragrance oil in HP soap, melt and pour, or CP soap recipes.  Our cold process soap testing results show that soaps made with this scent discolor to a milk chocolate color!  There was no ricing, no separation, and no acceleration.  Cured soap had a strong scent retention.  We find that the discoloration of soaps with this scent accurately represents the fragrance, and therefore we do not recommend a colorant.  A contributing factor to the discoloration of soaps made with this fragrance is the 4.2% Vanillin content of this fragrance oil.  Vanallin contributes heavily to the discoloration of soap, but incorporating Vanilla White Color Stabilizer may help reduce the effects of this discoloration.    If you do wish to color your soaps, you may use liquid soap dye in the amount of your choosing.
