Gathering supplies is simple! With only 5 ingredients, you can make these soaps in no time.


*1 2lb block of soap (I just shea butter)

*Peppermint fragrance
*Silver glitter
*Blue soap dye

Kitchen Utensils:
*Microwaveable mixing bowl
*Sharp knife
*Cutting board

Step 2: Cut Soap

Before microwaving, you'll want to cut the soap in about 1 inch pieces or small cubes. About 3/4 of the entire block made 6 full snowflakes. Add to the bowl.

Step 3: Microwave

Microwave the soap on high for 30 seconds until soap is smooth and not chunky (keep microwaving in 10 second intervals until right consistency).

Step 4: Add Ingredients

Add the glitter (desired amount), a few drops of blue dye, peppermint oil until mixed thoroughly. I added some extra glitter at the end to make mine more sparkly!

Step 5: Fill Molds

After everything is fully mixed together, fill molds. Note: if you wait too long to pour it, the soap can get chunky, its better to work with it when it's warm. If it does clump up a little, just simiply microwave it for a few more seconds. Let sit at least 40 minutes at room temperature or until fully cooled down.

Step 6: Pop Out of Molds

Pop the snowflakes out of the molds and put in gift bags! Enjoy your awesome soaps!

These look beautiful! Can you use food coloring for the blue? Or is it another kind of dye? Thanks in advance for answering.
