Black Cocoa Butter Homemade Soap in a Bag

Mold this soap how ever you like, or just cook it in the crock-pot and plop it into a bag when it’s cooled to use for chunking into future soap batches for added colour.

Black Cocoa Butter Soap

  • 16oz Black Cocoa Butter
  • 8oz Coconut Oil
  • 8oz Olive Oil
  • 12oz Water
  • 4.36oz Lye

Follow basic soap making directions. I cooked this in the crock pot because I wanted to chunk it for other soap recipes. (I will be adding ‘how to’ make crock pot soap soon. Stay tuned.)

It comes out a dark brown colour.

It is also nice cut into larger pieces and polished. Here is a chunk I cut but haven’t polished it. There is a bit of blur and glare, I hope to have a few better pictures up soon.

Black Cocoa Butter Homemade Soap Chunk


I made these soaps with a Sandalwood Essential Oil blend (I’ll be posting that here too as well as having some for sale, I have a lot of good stuff coming up!) and chunked some of the black cocoa butter soap into it to give it some character.

Nice for a man or a sultry lady (even if it’s just for a few minutes in the shower), but the big surprise for me is that kids seemed to like it when I had it at the farmer’s market. Go figure!

    Fabulous recipe and I think I’ll love black cocoa butter. I love the soaps you’ve made with it. I’m passing on it right now as I’m such a newbie and need to get into the basic stuff first. Thanks for sharing though!!

    Hi Pat, it does seem a little complicated but it’s not really too hard, especially if you make the black soap first – it is really easy. I am doing a fair number of ‘chunked’ soaps because it is quite easy to add colour and interest that way if you have some solid coloured soaps already made.

    There is a little more to be concerned with in way of ingredients, just wanted to let you know that the only thing that is really much different from a basic soap is the soaking of the olive oil/annatto seeds and slicing the black cocoa butter soap in. (not trying to convince you, just wanted to let you know that it may be doable or a similar recipe in the future if you wanted to try it.)

    Sometimes things that are quite simple can give amazing results! I am leaning towards simple in anything I can these days – including soap recipes. I am finding that they are just as good and much easier to make.

    I also forgot to add how I finished up the soaps by painting them with the black Australian clay and gold mica. I will be putting a post up on that too. I wasn’t sure how it would work but it did turn out very nicely.

    I’m glad that you liked them. Thanks!!
