I need to make a fudgesicle soap bar this weekend but do not have a brown colorant. Is there anything in my kitchen or at the grocery store I can use to turm clear M&P brown?

Food coloring just does not make a nice brown.

I thought about cocoa powder, that would work right?

cocoa powder is actually what makes for a good brown color.

Yep, good 'ole Hershey's (or generic) cocoa is a great colorant in CP I know. I used to use black oxide, way too strong and discolored my soap while in the shower and a washcloth. I then started using the cocoa, me liked very much! :D

Paul.... :wink:

Something that will naturally color soap brown is vanilla fragrance oil, unless it's a white vanilla. Vanilla gives a subtle scent, and turns soap deep brown.

Yummy I love fudgesicles! I would go with cocoa. I tried some chocolate soap once. It was a disaster (way to hard and brittle and didnt smell well) But the color was awesome. I even molded it in a cocoa container. Looked great.

I have used melted chocolate (3 small squares per lb soap) and swirled it.
It turned out really pretty and looks GOOD on the ingredient list as well! :lol:
