This is so cool! The smell of melted cocoa butter trickles my nostrils;-) I didn't get chocolate chips at the store y'day, so I substituted that with 1/2 tsp. Nescafe coffee powder(to get a coffee flavoured lip balm), 1/2 tsp. Nesquik chocolate powder(to get a chocolate flavour lip balm) and 1 tsp. of Hintz Dutch processed cocoa powder(to get a dark chocolate colour and flavour lip balm). Instead of melting the cocoa butter in the microwave, I did it over the stove(much easier and quicker and plus I could enjoy the smell of the cocoa butter as it melted much more!). I did not use a Vitamin E capsule, because my cocoa butter formula is already enriched with Vitamin E. I just used some of this on my lip and my hands. My lips have a natural glossy effect and my hands are feeling as soft as those of a new born baby:-) This will make a great gift! Thanks for sharing and I hope you liked my coffee and chocolate substitute ideas!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa butter (available in the pharmacy)
  • 3 -4 chocolate chips (as an alternative use white chocolate chips)
  • 1 vitamin E, capsule
  • 14 teaspoon almond extract (or cooking oil)

Directions

  1. Melt the cocoa butter in the microwave.
  2. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted.
  3. You may have to microwave the mixture again for a few seconds.
  4. Add vitamin E and oil.
  5. Note: Vitamin E is a natural preservative.
  6. Stir very well, or the lip balm will turn out lumpy.
  7. Pour into a small container.
  8. Great gift idea!
