    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.

    It's a wavy cutter that I think is used for cheese and veggie slicing. One drawback is that the ends only have one wavy side.

    No, I still have some peppermint from Susan I bought a while back. One of these days I'll run out and then I hope Lillian does another coop. :)

    Very Pretty! My chocolate never sells either - most food scents don't around here, but that is very nice!
