|Finished Soap Truffles|
I started by making a 3 lb batch of soap and split it in 6 parts. Each part was about 12 ounces each. I scented and colored each part differently.
I chose a variety of scents. I went with mocha, espresso, raspberry, peppermint, hazelnut toffee, and vanilla. This gives a nice variety for people to choose from. I plan to sell these in a pack of four or six.

Anyway, after the soap thickened up enough to actually coat the soap centers, I started covering the centers. I used two spoons to completely cover the centers. This allowed me to get the centers completely covered without ending up with excess soap on the truffles. This ensures a neat and finished appearance. Unfortunately if you try to use the soap before it is thick enough, you can see the color of the soap center right through the soap coating, as you can see below.
