The big reveal. This loaf was formulated with Oils of Coconut, Palm, Olive, Cocoa Butter, Coffee Butter, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Dutch Douwe Egberts Coffee, Droste Cocoa and Chocolate Espresso Fragrance Oil.
I've had a couple of friends suggest names for this soap. So I thought it would be fun to get people's ideas. I have two names thus far:
- "Wash My Mouth Out With Soap, Please!"
- "I'm Cukoo for Cocoa Suds!"

Some of you may remember my Dutch Treat post. This soap is a variation of that soap. I'm using coffee butter in this formula, which is new to me. I also have Droste Cocoa colored layers. I am very excited to cut into this loaf. I loved making Dutch Treat in the past, and I'm curious how this one will stand up to it. As I made this, it smelled more like a lighter, sweeter chocolate experience. No doubt because I did add Chocolate Espresso Fragrance Oil this time around. In the past, I've restricted Dutch Treat to individual bar molds, so doing it in a loaf will give it a new life. - H
