Spice up your Valentine's Day with this super sexy, naughty chocolate body paint. This recipe doubles as a topping for your favorite ice cream or baked goods. Double, triple or even quadruple the recipe so you have extra to give to friends.

****WARNING**** Please take precautions before painting. Do not use the chocolate paint until it has cooled down sufficiently. If the paint is too hot, you may get burned. Test a small drop before use on your forearm.


2 tablespoons chocolate extract

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 pinch kosher salt

3 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons butter chopped

1/4 cup good quality cocoa powder ( yes, it makes a difference)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Optional: 1/2 tsp of your favorite booze

Special tools: 

Food grade pastry brush - available on amazon, your local drug or grocery store & bake shops

Jars for bottling

Recipe:  Makes 1/2 cup  (Triple recipe to make as gifts for friends)
adapted by

In a large saucepan, pour in the sugar, salt, & water. Heat the pan over medium heat until the mixture begins to boil. Do not stir the mixture. Once, it begins to boil, lower the heat and bring mixture to a simmer. Once all the sugar granules have dissolved, remove the pan from heat. Add the chopped butter and whisk until the butter is combined. 

Next, add the cocoa powder, vanilla & chocolate extract. If you are going to add some booze, now would be the time to do it. Whisk to combine. The mixture may be lumpy at first. Whisk until the mixture is smooth & velvety. Test the mixture out with a wooden spoon. You should get a nice thick coat.  

Pour the paint into a decorative jar. Once the paint has cooled down, but is still warm, you are ready to paint. After a while, the paint may thicken. You can reheat it in the microwave or a double boiler. Refrigerate unused portions in the fridge for future use.

Happy Valentine's Day!

    You're welcome!

    Great work! Congrats! I love body painting, last halloween I painted my gf with a mystique costume, we won an ipad. My question would be: Can this be used in a party? I mean, like a true body paint costume? Not just for kinky stuff ;) I would like to use this to paint a modelo to promote a chocolate fountain I sell at a party. Thanks!

    Do you think that your project main picture is somewhat risquè?

    I thought that too, but she's not showing anything that she wouldn't show in a bathing suit, at the beach or a lake.

    A special thanks to Stacey Novak indeed!

    We have far more exposed bodies on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
    I never knew that body painting is considered a "sport". Thank you Heidi Klum!

    Let's be reasonable here - This site shows people how to make all kinds of very dangerous things - fireworks, explosives, guns, knives, etc.

    I think we can all live safely with this level of risk from these photos.

    Maybe. I'll have to review any other pics not posted to confirm though...

    I'm sure some people would see it that way, but it was done in good taste.
