Rainbow Sprinkle Bath Tub Cookies
20 – 30 drops FD&C Yellow #5*
3/4 cup Epsom Salt
1 cup Oatmeal, Fine
1/4 cup Whole Milk Powder
1/4 cup Honey Granules
1 cup Cornstarch
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
2 oz. Mango Butter
2 oz. Organic Virgin Coconut Cream Oil
1/2 oz. Easter Cookie Fragrance Oil*
1/2 Teaspoon Assorted or Solid Colored Jojoba Wax Beads*
Line a large baking sheet with wax paper or plastic wrap and set it aside. Pour Epsom Salt into a large mixing bowl and color generously with the FD&C Yellow #5 Dye. You’ll need about 20 to 30 drops to dye the salt bright yellow. Mix the salt thoroughly to make sure that it is evenly dyed. Next, add the Whole Milk Powder, Cornstarch, and Oatmeal, breaking up any clumps in the powders. Add the Honey Granules next. In a small heat proof container gently melt the Mango Butter and Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. You can either use a double boiler or a microwave to do this. If you use a microwave be sure to melt the oils in short 20 – 30 second bursts. Be careful not to overheat and damage the oils. When the oils are melted, allow them to cool for a few moments before adding the Easter Cookie Fragrance Oil to them. Next, add the Baking Soda and Citric Acid to the large mixing bowl. Mix the powders thoroughly then add the melted oil mixture, stirring constantly. After the oils and powders are mixed, wipe the mixing spoon clean and continue to knead the dough with your hands. This will make sure that all the ingredients are completely mixed. Using your hands, form small round balls out of the dough. Drop them onto the baking sheet and press them with your hands to form cookie shapes. Continue until all of the dough is used. This recipe will yield about 2 dozen 2 inch cookies. Allow the cookies to dry and harden for several hours before attempting to move or package them. The will harden completely when left overnight in a cool, dry place.
Usage and Packaging
Rainbow Sprinkle Bath Tub Cookies look adorable when packaged in our Small Cello Bags. Use a piece of ribbon or a twist tie to close each bag. To use the cookies, simply drop one or two in a warm bath. The cookies will fizz, melt, and disperse into the water.
*These ingredients contain synthetic components and can be left out if desired. Natural Herbs can be used to top the cookies, and Vanilla Absolute can be used to scent them. Leaving out the FD&C Dye will only alter the color slightly, so a substitute is not necessary.
Remember, you can purchase all the ingredients and packaging you’ll need to create around two dozen Rainbow Sprinkle Bath Cookies in our Body Care Craft Kit for just $20.00! Body Care Craft Kits or finished cookies make excellent, affordable holiday gifts.
