Snap Bar Wax Tarts Recipe: Preparations and Cleaning
Before you begin to create your wax melts recipe, you will want to make a few preparations. First, gather your cosmetic ingredients for this wax tarts recipe. It can be useful to get everything that you need before making your diy wax melts to have the process go easier. Also, you will want to sanitize any craft equipment that you will need for the wax melt recipe. Next, you will want to prepare an area for you to use as a work space. Further, it is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while you prepare this candle wax recipe. After you have made these preparations, you will be ready to work on making this homemade candle recipe!
Next, you are going to want to create the double boiler for this recipe. While you will still need to stir, the double boiler will be useful for preventing your wax from overheating. To create this device you will need two pots that will fit into each other. In the larger pot you will add water, which will be heated to a boil. Your pouring pot will act as the smaller pot for this recipe. Now, you will want to heat your water. Once the water is at a boil, set your pouring pot inside to melt the candle wax inside.

Snap Bar Wax Tarts Recipe: Weights and Amounts of Ingredients
A small amount of the White Color Block
6.5 ounces of the Bliss of Bliss Candle Wax
A small amount of the Royal Blue Color Block
0.65 ounces of the Independent Fragrance Oil
A small amount of the Scarlet Color Block
First, you are going to measure out the granulated candle wax for this portion of the wax melt recipe. So, you will want to add one ounce of the Pillar of Bliss Wax to your pouring pot. You are going to need to use your pouring pot device to melt your candle wax. Once your candle wax has completely melted, you are ready to move on to the next step in preparing this portion of the wax melts recipe.
Snap Bar Wax Tarts Recipe: Creating the Blue Candle Wax
Next, you are going to add the candle colorant to your melted Pillar of Bliss wax. So, you will need to cut a small amount off of the Royal Blue color block. You will want to add this small amount of candle dye to your melted wax and mix it in. Be sure to stir until all of the added color block is incorporated. Once you have a beautiful deep blue color, you are ready to move on to the next part of the process.
Once your wax has been colored, you can add the fragrance oil. So, you will want to add 0.10 ounce of the Independent Fragrance Oil. Once you add in the scented oil, you will want to mix everything together to make sure that the fragrance is fully incorporated. Then, you can move on to the next step in the process.
Now you are ready to pour your scented wax into the mold. So, you will want to retrieve your silicone loaf mold. However, this isn’t the only mold that you can use for this recipe. Instead, you could pour your candle wax into another silicone mold that you use for candle making or even a nonstick pan. If you use a pan, then we would recommend that you line your pan with wax paper to make it easier to remove.
After the blue wax portion has cooled and set up completely, you can remove it from the candle mold. You will want to use a knife to cut the blue candle wax into chunks. For our purposes, the chunks do not need to be even. Also, you may notice that you create little blue shavings as you cut. You will want to save both the chunks and the shavings. After everything has been cut, you will need to put this to the side for a later step.
Next, you can move on to prepare the red portion of the candle recipe. So, you will want to wipe out your pouring pot. Once your pouring pot is clean, you want to add one ounce of the Pillar of Bliss Wax to your clean pouring pot. Use your double boiler to melt the candle wax and stir as the wax melts. Once everything is melted, then move on to the next part of the process.
Snap Bar Wax Tarts Recipe: Adding the Red Candle Colorant
Now, you are ready to add the colorant to your melted wax. You will need to use a knife to cut a small amount of the Scarlet Color Block Dye. Then, you will want to add this small amount to your pouring pot. As the color block melts, you will want to stir in the color. Once you have fully incorporated the colorant and have a bright red hue, then you will be ready to move on to the next step in the process.
Now that your candle wax is colored, you can add the scented oil for this wax melt recipe. You will want to add 0.10 ounce of the Independent Fragrance Oil. After adding the scented oil, you will need to mix the scent in well. Once the scent has been fully incorporated into the melted red wax, you can move on to the next step in the candle making process.
Once everything has been mixed together, you are ready to move on to pouring the candle wax. If you are using the silicone loaf mold, then you will need to pour your red candle wax in another cavity. Anyone that is using a different candle wax mold can use that mold at this time. Again, you will want to wait for the candle wax to step up before moving on to the next step in the process.
Once your red candle wax has completely set up, you are ready to remove this portion of the candle wax from the mold. Then, you will need to use a knife to cut your red wax portion into chunks. Again, your chunks should be a bit uneven. Also, you should remember to keep any smaller shavings that you create. If you add both shavings of wax and larger pieces, it gives you melts added interest.
For the next part, you are going to need both the red and blue chunks of wax. You will need to mix these two colors together. If you would like, you can mix them together in a separate bowl. Once you have these colors mixed up, you are going to need to get your mold. So, you will need to get the break bar mold. Then, spread out your wax chunks and shavings all throughout the mold.
Now you are going to create the white portion of your wax tart recipe. So, you are going to want to add 4.5 ounces of Pillar of Bliss Wax in the pouring pot. Then, you will need to melt this candle wax using your double boiler.
Once you have your wax melted, you are ready to add the scent and wax colorant. So, you will want to add 0.45 ounces of the fragrance oil to your melted wax. Also, you will want to add a small amount of the white color block to your melted wax. You will want to stir until all of these candle making ingredients are mixed together well. You will want to allow the temperature of the wax to cool to about 145 degrees Fahrenheit. This will ensure that your candle mold doesn’t melt when you pour the white candle wax.
Once your candle wax has reached the proper temperature you will be ready to move on to the next step. So, you will need to take your white candle wax and pour it into the mold. You will need to pour this wax directly on top of your red and blue wax chunks.
After your scented wax melts have completely cooled you are ready for the next step. So, take the breakable wax melts and remove them from the mold.
Next, you are going to break your wax melt chunk into pieces. Your wax melts will break into shapes that are similar to chocolate bark. After you have these pieces broken, you simply need to package your wax melts and let it cure.
Once your wax tarts have cured, you are ready to use them! These wax melts smell too good not to use. All you will need to do is add a big chunk or a few smaller pieces to your wax tart warmer. Then, your home will be smelling its best in no time at all!
