      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!

      The only cocoa butter I could find was in a stick form, so I melted it and added the chips, vitamin E oil and cooking oil. Since it was so liquidy, I put it in the fridge and it hardened back into the original stick and everything separted into layers. Chocolate on the bottom and the rest a swirl mixture. Not sure what I did wrong. Maybe I shouldn't have refrigerated it. I can't get any out to use on my lips! Please let me know if you have any hints.

      Everyone LOVED this! And it was so easy! I added 10 chocolate chips (Ghiradelli's Double Chocolate Chips, to be exact) and used the vitamin E oil instead of capsule, but it worked so great. I just threw in 1 oz. of cocoa butter, figuring that looked like about 3 Tbsp. to me. I had little teeny containers, so each batch filled 4 very full. My female relatives were all REALLY impressed that I made it myself. :D Thanks!
