This is a recipe I found on about.com, and posted when chari requested inedible cocoa recipes!!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and add it to your warm bath water as it is running.
  2. This works even better in a whirlpool tub, because it gets frothy and foamy!

This was a fabulous experience that every woman should try. It didn't smell very much like cocoa, but just the knowledge that I was bathing in chocolate was good for my soul. It was almost like a religious experience, lol. The epsom salts made my skin feel nice and soft, too. I didn't use any essential oils because I didn't have any on hand. I don't know if there's such a thing as peppermint essential oil, but I'm going to look into it because I think a minty scent would have made this even more amazing. Thanks for a great idea, Angela! I will be using this frequently when I need to relax and unwind.

A fun recipe to make and give to chocolate lovers, I added one extra tablespoon of baking soda. As a fragrance I made one batch with orange essential oil and one batch with vanilla fragrance. I wrapped them in several small plastic bags, labeled them, tied them with ribbon and gave two friends one bag of each with the different fragrance. They loved it!

I had some apprehension about trying this based on Rita's review, but I did and I wasn't that fussed with it. Yes bathing in chocolate is a nice idea, it does have a luxurious sound, but it just wasn't practical. It made my skin feel nice and soft but epsom salts do that by themselves. I probably won't make it again. For the ring around the bath, simply wipe it down with a flannel (face cloth) while the water is still in and then let it out.
