Tips for Making Peanut Butter Soap

Peanut butter in soap is wonderful! I used about 3/4 cup melted peanut butter added at trace to a 5 pound batch. I added no fragrance. It came out a very light brown. It smelled just like peanut butter and it was very softening to the skin. I added some dark brown chunks that were strong vanilla. People always say strong vanilla smells like chocolate. I called it my peanut butter cup soap. It was a big hit!

I have made peanut butter soap and must confess that I LOVE it, and so do my small nieces and nephews who can brag to their friends they wash with butter!!! I used any old favourite recipe (oh, I also used chocolate chips in this soap for a swirl effect), made it about 3% discounted. Took about 1 oz chocolate chips and melted part way in a separate bowl in the microwave, same thing for the butter. When the oils in the recipe were hot, I poured a little (about 1/4 cup) over each additive, butter and chocolate chips, mixed well so they would not harden up again. Then proceeded with the recipe as usual and superfatted with the butter and chocolate chips making a swirling effect, so I ended up with white soap swirled with golden beige butter and dark chocolate. Very pretty!
