Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe

There is something about Autumn and the holidays that make you want to create a warm, cozy home. I suppose it is similar to hibernating. If you are going to spend most of your time indoors during the cold weather, then making your home a snug place to come home to is your hibernation time. There is nothing better than walking in the front door of your home to warmth, family, pets and good smells to make you feel safe and happy to be there! Nature’s Garden’s Pecan Pie Wax Melts recipe will definitely give your home a wonderful, inviting smell of warm butter, caramel, brown sugar, and toasted pecans.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: A History of Pecan PiePecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: A History of Pecan Pie

While any information on how the Pecan Pie came to be is a little sketchy, it is for certain, that it started out as one type of dessert similar to the ingredients that were used and then evolved into a true Southern dessert using staple ingredients that were native to the area. The basis of this pie is sugar, butter, syrup (pre-Karo syrup days, it was cane syrup) and eggs. This is the basic recipe for Chess Pie, which has its own origin. However, the addition of pecans and whoever thought of adding it is a mystery that will never be solved, but let’s thank whoever felt like spicing up their dessert! A personal favorite addition to my pecan pie? Chocolate drizzle and a dollop of ice vanilla ice cream! Mmmmm!  However, our inspiration for this project came from these pecan mini pies from Sugar Hero.  While, of course, our wax melts aren’t edible, her mini pecan pies are simply AMAZING! So, if this wax tart recipe, and sent leaves your belly grumbling, give her recipe a try.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Let’s Talk Ingredients

So before we move onto making our Pecan Pie Wax Melts, let’s familiarize ourselves with some of the ingredients we are using.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pillar of Bliss Candle WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax

So anytime a recipe calls for a wax melt,  we will always use our Pillar of Bliss. The reason for that is that Pillar of Bliss is the best wax when we are using a mold for our creation. This wax has an easy release from the mold since it hardens up nicely. Most waxes, such as soy, are often too soft and can often difficult to get out of the mold. Pillar of Bliss is a granulated blend of soy wax (more than 50 percent) and paraffin wax. This wax has excellent scent retention as well as amazing hot and cold throws. 

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Joy Wax Candle WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Joy Wax Candle Wax

The next wax we will be using is our Joy Wax Candle Wax. This wax is also a blend of soy, veggie waxes, and paraffin. Joy Wax also has wonderful scent retention along with awesome hot and cold throws. Any time you would like to add a fluffy topping to any of your candle creations, this wax is perfect for that! As you will see, it can be whipped up into a puffy cloud of fluff! It’s perfect for use in dessert candles or wax melts!

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Granny’s Pecan Pie Fragrance Oil

This is one of my favorite home scents to use for the fall (or anytime actually). It has a warm aroma of brown sugar, vanilla, butter, and roasted pecans. This fragrance oil does amazing in all candle waxes that were tested. It also did very well when we tested in Cold Process soap. While it did discolor to a chocolate brown (which I think is a perfect color for a soap when using this fragrance) there was no acceleration, or ricing! It did, however, separate, yet it reabsorbed with no problem. I am sure that this would be a perfect fragrance to add to your fall/holiday line of products.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You will Need

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on your wax melts, it is always good to prepare your work area. Clean your work area and also your equipment that you will be using. Make sure that you have all your ingredients and utensils handy and within reaching distance. These few steps will help ensure that your creating will run smoothly and uninterrupted. If this is your first time working with candle wax, you might like to familiarize yourself with how to make candles. Follow this link to get a quick rundown on melting and pour temperatures and also proper temperatures for adding fragrances.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing Your Double Boiler

The first step before starting your wax melts will be to set up your double boiler. If you know the process of setting up a double boiler, you can move on to the next step of prepping your wax. However, if you are unfamiliar with a double boiler, we can explain to you how it is done in a few easy steps.

First, you will need a large pot or even an old cake pan for the outside part of your double boiler. Place this onto your heating element. This can be your stove top or even a hot plate. Next, pour about 3 inches of water into the pot or pan. Then, you will need a smaller pot or a pouring pot, for the inside part of the double boiler. As a side note, it isn’t really necessary, however, it is so much easier pouring melted wax into the molds if your pot has a pouring spout. That is why a pouring pitcher is ideal as the inner part of your double boiler. Next, turn your burner on to medium heat to allow the water to warm up as you are preparing your wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Wax for the BasesPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Wax for the Bases

First, you will be preparing the bases of the wax melts. For this step, you will need the Pillar of Bliss Wax. On your scale, set your pouring pot and tare out the weight. Weigh out 325 grams of Pillar of Bliss Wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the candle dyes and fragrance oilPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the candle dyes and fragrance oil

Next, place the pouring pot into the larger part of your double boiler and allow the wax to melt to the proper temperature, stirring occasionally. While you are waiting for the wax to melt, you can weigh out the fragrance oil. To a small dish, weigh out 32 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil. You can set this aside for the moment. Once your wax has reached the correct melting point, remove the pouring pot from the heat and you can now add in the liquid candle dyes. We are going for a pecan color so you will add in 3 drops of yellow liquid candle dye and 4 drops of brown liquid candle dye. Stir this well to incorporate the color thoroughly.

Once the wax has reached the correct temperature for the fragrance oil, you can now add that, once again stirring well to completely disperse the oil throughout the wax.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the WaxPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Pouring the Wax

Now that your melted wax is colored and scented, you will be pouring the wax into their molds. With the silicone mini muffin mold in front of you, carefully fill each mold to the top with the melted wax. Once these are all filled, allow them to set up completely until they have cooled. Pop them out of the muffin cavities and place them on a piece of wax paper. You can set these aside for the moment.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Pecan EmbedsPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the  Pecan Embeds

Next, you will be preparing the Pecan Embeds. For the embeds, you will notice we are using a mold from Flexible Molds. This company offers many different types of molds to fit any of your soap or candle making needs. They are very durable molds, that will last you a long time! So, to your pouring pot weigh out 50 grams of Pillar of Bliss candle Wax and place it into the larger pot of heated water. Melt this wax down to the proper temperature. While you are waiting for this wax to melt, weigh out 5 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil into a small bowl and set this aside for the moment.

For the color of the pecans, you will only need a small amount. So, using a toothpick to add the color, swirl in a small amount of yellow and brown liquid candle dye. The pecans do not have to be the same exact shade as the bases of the wax melts. It is okay if they are a bit lighter. Stir the liquid color until it is fully blended. Now you can add in the pre-weighed fragrance oil and stir this well also. Next, you will pour the melted wax into the pecan embeds mold carefully. Once again, you will let these set up until cool before removing them from the mold. Since the mold has only 6 cavities, you will need to remelt any of the wax remaining in the pot to pour the second set of pecans.  Set the pecans aside on a piece of wax paper until later.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Chocolate DrizzlePecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Chocolate Drizzle

Next, you will be preparing the chocolate drizzle. For this, you will need the joy wax. In your pouring pot, weigh out 20 grams of Joy wax. Melt the wax completely and then add in 2 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance oil. Then, using the toothpick method, add in both black and brown liquid candle dye. Stir this well to fully incorporate the fragrance and color.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Drizzling the Chocolate

Now, you will drizzle the chocolate wax over the bases of your pecan pies. So, using a spoon, dip it into the wax and holding it above the bases, drizzle the wax back and forth over the pies until you have used all the wax, or until you are satisfied with your drizzle.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Preparing the Whipped Topping

The next step is preparing the whipped topping of the pies. As a side note, if you are using the same pouring pot as in the previous steps, you will want to clean out the pot completely using paper towels. This is only necessary since the whipped topping will be white with no color. Any leftover colored wax may cause your wax to have a tint. So, in your cleaned out pouring pot, weigh out 120 grams of Joy Wax. Place into the heated water and melt, stirring occasionally.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Creating the whipped toppingPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Creating the whipped topping

So once the joy wax has completely melted, remove the pouring pot from the heat source and add in 12 grams of Granny’s Pecan Pie fragrance and stir this well to combine. For this step, you can use a mixer or even just a spoon. As your wax is cooling down, it will begin to thicken. As it begins to thicken, mix the wax to create a whipped topping consistency. Once you have your wax to whipped consistency, place a dollop on top of each cupcake base.

Pecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Pecan EmbedsPecan Pie Wax Melts Recipe: Adding the Pecan Embeds

Next, place a pecan embed on top of each whip topped pie. Press down so the embed adheres to the top snugly. This recipe creates 12 wax melts. Pecan Pie Wax Melts are ready to use! Simply place one in your wax burner and enjoy the warm, comforting aroma that will fill your home!
