How to create Mocha and Oatmeal Soap Slices

Yvonne Mcintosh has been busy creating more fantastic recipes. This week she shares with us how to create scrumptious and creative mocha soaps using Crystal Oatmeal and Shea. Be warned, these are so realistic that you will need a ‘Caution, do not eat!’ sign!


  • 300g of Stephenson’s Oatmeal Soap Base
  • Chocolate Fragrance
  • Oatmeal
  • 3 Teaspoons of Instant Coffee
  • 1 Teaspoonful of Cocoa Powder
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Microwavable Jug or Bowl
  • Knife
  • Metal Spoon
  • Pen
  • Rectangle Soap Mould

Preparation Tip

Draw line halfway on the side of the mould

Step 1

Weigh out 300 grams of the oatmeal soap base. Cut the soap into small pieces. Transfer half (150g) of the soap pieces into your microwaveable jug. Microwave for 30 seconds, and then keep microwaving for 15 second bursts until the soap changes to liquid form.

Step 2

Add 5 drops of chocolate fragrance oil. Stir in well! (You can add more or less fragrance oil depending on your preference.)

Once you are happy with your fragrance you can pour the contents of your jug into 3 rectangle moulds, up to the halfway line on the side of the soap moulds. Wait 20 minutes until the soap has hardened before going on to Step 3.

Step 3

With the remaining soap, put it into your microwaveable jug and follow Step 1 until the soap has reached liquid form. Add in 3tsp of coffee grains, 1 heaped tsp of cocoa powder and 5 drops of fragrance oil. Stir in well! If the coffee grains don’t melt in straight away, leave your soap for 5 minutes and put in the microwave for 20 seconds and stir until there are no lumps.

Step 4

Spray the soap in the mould with rubbing alcohol and then pour your chocolaty soap mixture on top of your first layer.

For an extra touch of Awesomeness, you can add some coffee beans or oatmeal pieces to the top of your soaps. Remember to spray them with rubbing alcohol to make sure they stick to your soaps!
