DIY Candy Corn Soap

Author Anne-Marie Faiola is showing you how easy it is to make your own Halloween-themed soap out of everybody's favorite treat, candy corn!
Materials
  • Silicone Loaf Mold
  • Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base
  • White Melt & Pour Soap Base
  • Perfect Orange Color Block
  • Fizzy Lemonade Color Block
  • Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil
  • Vanilla Color Stabilizer
  • Isopropyl Alcohol 


Directions

1) Chop 32 ounces of Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base into small uniform pieces. Then, chop 16 ounces of White Melt & Pour Soap Base into small uniform pieces. Place the following amounts of soap into three heat-safe containers.

  • Container A: 16 ounces Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base + 0.5 ounces White Melt & Pour Soap Base
  • Container B: 16 ounces Clear Melt & Pour Soap Base + 0.5 ounces White Melt & Pour Soap Base
  • Container C: 15 ounces White Melt & Pour Soap Base

2) Add a small chunk of Fizzy Lemonade Color Block to container A and melt in the microwave using 30 second bursts. Between each burst, stir the soap to help it melt evenly. If you want the color darker, you can add more of the color block and stir to fully incorporate. Once melted, add 0.2 ounces of Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil and 0.2 ounces of Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Stir in completely and pour into the mold. Spritz with alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow to fully cool and harden for about 15-20 minutes.

3) Once the yellow layer has hardened and can support a layer on top, add a chunk of Perfect Orange Color Block to container B. Melt the soap in the microwave using 30 second bursts. Between each burst, stir the soap to help it melt evenly.

4) Once melted, add 0.2 ounces of Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil and 0.2 ounces of Vanilla Color Stabilizer to the orange soap. Stir in completely. Check the temperature of the orange soap. If it’s hotter than 130 degrees F, allow it to cool slightly to prevent melting the layer below. Once it’s the correct temperature, spritz the layer below with alcohol to help the layers stick and pour into the mold. Spritz with alcohol to get rid of bubbles. Allow to fully cool and harden for about 15-20 minutes.

5) Melt the soap in container C using 30 second bursts. Once melted, add 0.2 ounces of Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil and 0.2 ounces of Vanilla Color Stabilizer and stir in completely. Check the temperature of the white soap. If it’s over 130 degrees F, allow it to cool slightly to prevent melting the layer below. Once it’s the correct temperature, spritz the layer below with alcohol to help the layers stick and pour the soap into the mold. Spritz with alcohol to get rid of bubbles.

6) Allow the soap to fully cool and harden for at least 3 hours or up to overnight. Remove from the mold and cut into bars about 1″ thick. Then cut the bars into a triangle shapes with the white layer at the top. Repeat this process for the entire loaf.

7) Use the Clean Up Tool to round out the edges of each bar until you’re happy with the look. Enjoy! Wrap them in plastic wrap to avoid glycerin dew.
