They have cocoa butter, oils and baking soda in them so they're good for your skin and fun! My kitchen is messier than when I used to make sugar cookies for my kids but I haven't gained any weight!

Those look so good. What a fun gift. I keep saying I am going to make something like this but never do these look fabulous.

I have been stamping and cutting all day - so much fun. I couldn't get at the gift bags I know we have so I ended up using the cricut and some stamps to decorate a couple of Kraft bags and made a couple of cards - all done and I had a lot of fun. I feel good that I am all ready for tomorrow.

I was looking at the "recipe" but no amounts are given how do you know how much of each ingredient to use. I have never done anything like this.

Those are very pretty, and delicious looking! I hope you tell the recipients what they are because I'd bite into one thinking it was food.

I would love to make these for Christmas presents, just change the colors. (Yes, I like to plan ahead!!!)

The end of the recipe says to "roll into the sprinkles and colored sugars". Real sprinkles and sugar? You would put that into the bathtub?

Thanks for coming back and adding the recipe. I pinned it and a ton of others have pinned it.

Another question where do you get the cocoa butter, citric acid and Skin safe mica coloring or food coloring ? Health food store? I am hoping it is something to buy local instead of on-line as I would like to try it but want to try with a small batch to test them. I have been saying for a while I want to try them or other bath bombs. I think I pinned or you posted something else not that long ago as your site looked familiar.

I did roll them in real sprinkles. It dissolves easily and it's not very much at all. You can buy something called jojoba beads if you don't want to use sprinkles. Bath salts always have chunky stuff in it...lavender, rose petals...so they were fine for me.

You can make bath fizzies without the cocoa butter...it would just be with the citric acid and baking soda. The cocoa butter just adds more skin softening oil! I can find my recipe for bath fizzies and share it if anyone wants it. You can just pack them into cupcake or candy molds. I have a heart chocolate mold that works great.

I ordered my products from Brambleberry . You probably have to order the cocoa butter and mica...or you could make them with no colors and roll in sprinkles. I did one batch that way. You can get citric acid from a beer or wine making store. Citric acid is super expensive from the health food store.

Patti~I'm putting together some kits to make available in smaller batches. Wanna be my guinea pig? If you like, I'll send you a sample and you can be my tester.

The recipe on the website made between 15-18 depending on how I rolled them.

Patti~I can't remember how many the kits that I put together will make nor have I figured out a price. First, I need someone to try out my instructions in the kit and give me some constructive feedback. If you'd like to, just peamail me your address. Yeah! Tester!
