I love all things Mexican. Artwork, food, the whole kit and caboodle. I was drooling over Mexican Wedding Cookies when I thought up this recipe. Enjoy!

Inspired by the traditional baked good, Mexican Wedding Cookies, the following recipe will add a delightful, fizzy twist to your next bath.  This all natural recipe is full of skin loving ingredients.  Rice Bran Powder is known to help soother and balance skin.  Mango Butter and Organic Virgin Coconut Cream Oil add moisturizing properties to the bath, while Coconut Milk softens and conditions the skin.  



Coco-Lime Bath Cookies

Ingredients
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Rice Bran Powder (coarse or fine)
1 cup Cornstarch
1/2 cup Coconut Milk Powder (for mixture)
1/2 cup Coconut Milk Powder (for topping)
1 tbs. Cocoa Powder
2 oz. Organic Virgin Coconut Cream Oil
2 oz. Mango Butter
5 tsp. Lime Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil
1 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid

Directions
Warm the Mango Butter and Organic Virgin Coconut Cream Oil in a double boiler or a hot water bath until completely melted.  Remove the Mango Butter and Coconut Oil from the heat, allowing it to cool slightly, but not to harden.  Next, line a small baking sheet with waxed paper and set it to the side.  In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the Brown Sugar, Rice Bran Powder, Coconut Milk Powder, Cornstarch, and Cocoa Powder.  Stir the ingredients well, making sure to break up any clumps in the powders or sugars.  Since these ingredients can be a little clumpy by nature, you may want to grind the mixture in a blender or food processor to achieve a totally even consistency.  However, a few small clumps will not damage the cookies, so if that is totally optional.  In a second mixing bowl, combine the Baking Soda and Citric Acid.  Again, make sure to work out any clumps in the mixture.  Next, combine the two bowls of dry ingredients and mix well.  Add the Lime Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil to the melted Coconut Oil and Mango Butter than pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients.  Begin stirring and kneading the mixture immediately.  You must work quickly at this point to get the cookies formed and placed onto the baking sheet.  Using your hands, form tablespoon sized balls of the mixture.  Roll the balls in the Coconut Milk Powder, covering them completely.  Place the balls onto the baking sheet then press them down gently, flattening the top.  They should be similar in shape to a gingersnap or sugar cookie.  Continue shaping cookies with the remaining mixture.  Allow the cookies to harden for a full 24 hours before attempting to remove them from the baking sheet.  After 24 hours the cookies should be hard enough to be handled and packaged.


Usage & Packaging
Coco-Lime Bath Cookies should be stored in a tightly sealed bag or container.  Moisture or humidity can cause the cookies to fizz or "flower" prematurely.  These cookies look adorable in our Cello Bags or 1/2 lb. Tin Tie Bags.  To use the Cookies, simply drop one or two into a warm bath.  They will fizz and bubble, filling the bath with the delightful aroma of Lime and Coconut.  


NOTE: Lime Essential Oil is a photo-sensitizer. If you use real Essential Oil in this recipe these cookies should be used in the evening to give your skin plenty of time before being exposed to sunlight.
