Chocolate-Dipped Turkish Delight Crème

Sounds yummy, right?


I went looking through my lotions to find something super-moisturizing for my ill-fated pedicure yesterday, but alas, there was nothing to be found. Holly and I have been discussing doing another skincare cooking day (we are just now running out of all the lip moisturizer after many, many years!), and that got me thinking….

I didn’t have too many supplies on hand, but I managed to concoct what I’m calling “Turkish Delight”, due to the chocolatey-smelling cocoa butter & yummy rose oil. It smells so delicious, I can barely keep from eating it! It smells just like the little tray of chocolate turkish delights that sat by the register at the corner market in Pennard….oh memories!

Turkish Delight Crème

  • 7 oz. cocoa butter
  • 7 oz. coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. Jojoba oil
  • 8 drops rose oil

In double-boiler, melt cocoa butter & coconut oil. Add jojoba oil when melted, mix well. Take off heat (if very hot, let cool a bit before adding oil), and add rose oil. Whisk periodically while cooling. OPT: beat with mixer to make light and fluffy! (Beating also lightens the color)




ETA: I now have my feet all wrapped up and soaking in my new crème and massaged the extra into my cuticles and elbows and spread the last bits on my slightly sunburnt arms.....I smell like a candy shop! My new favorite lotion/body butter!


  1. Awesome!!!  Gee, would there possibly be a tineh little bit left over for little ol' me...?

  2. But of course!  It's not as nice as the body butter we made back in the day (it's greasier), but it's great for feet/cuticles/knees/elbows!  When you come up next, remind me to scoop some out for ya!
