This really does smell like a peppermint patty to me. I have lots of chocolate soap left from last Christmas that didn't sell so I was looking for a way to use some of it up. I think it turned out nice! THe white portion is not GM soap but a straight coconut oil soap superfatted at 20% so it isn't drying (and it's very white). I discount the water at 40% and it still takes forever and a day to trace. I made this last night around 9 and was able to cut it at 7 this a.m. It gets nice and hard quickly. My only mistake was that I miscalculated how much of the white soap to make and it wasn't enough. I'm going to cut the bars a little thicker so they have the correct weight to them. And I think I'm going to make another batch or two for Christmas gifts.
