Chocolate Chip Bath Cookies

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

Look at these nifty cookies! My sister loves chocolate chip cookies, so to add a few extra things to her Eid gift I decided to make her some Chocolate Chip Bath Cookies. I even tested one out before I gave it to her... I can't explain how weird it is to bath with a cookie..hehe especially when you are fasting! They are pretty easy to make, makes a really interesting and unique gift, and work pretty well (like a solid bath salt). Here is the recipe for anyone who wants to give it a try.

Makes 30 cookies

2 cups (16oz/227g) sea salt - finely ground
1/2 cup (2oz/114g) baking soda
1/2 cup (2oz/114g) cornstarch
2 tblsp almond oil or canola oil
1 tsp vitamin E oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
chocolate chips
(optional) food colour - if making a different cookie

note: you can use any oils you like, I even added vanilla extract to give it a more cookie like scent. And I'm sure you could add other things that are good for your skin, like oatmeal or cocobutter or olive oil, etc.

:: Pre-heat oven at 350°F (180°C)
:: Lightly beat eggs, then mix in canola oil and vanilla - set aside
:: In a separate bowl, stir together salt, baking soda, and cornstarch
:: Add the dry mixture to the egg mixture and combine to cookie dough consistency - do not over mix!
:: Roll the dough gently into 1 inch balls, no need to flatten, push in some chocolate chips, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet
:: Bake approximately 5-7 minutes - do not need to be browned, just spread and well set
:: Allow to cool completely before storing in a sealed container.
:: Wait 24 hours after baking before using.
:: Drop one or two cookies into a warm bath and allow them to dissolve slowly.

Note: Don't smash or crumble them, or you'll get floating crumbs

Looks good and very cute. I may also try this as well. Maybe even see if it would work with other types of cookies. This is a great gift idea.

As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu my dear sisters,

um mahtab, haha.. that's so funny! yuppers she can have a milk and cookie bath! I'll tell you what she won't be using.. her Coconut Lip Butter! Oh my goodness, it is soooo good..I don't know if I should be put it on my lips or spread it on my toast...hehe (yes, I got my paws on it..thanx um mahtab, you are so sweet..hehe)

Anyone who can get a hold of Coconut Lip Butter by The Body Shop, you'll never buy a different lip balm... *trust me, I'm married to lip-balm!)

Wa'alaykum as-salaam wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatu my dear sisters Suhaa and Hijabi Apprentice,

Jazak'Allah for the wonderful comments.

Oh sister Suhaa... I don't believe in non-creative people :) I think everyone is creative, just some people 'tap' into it more often than others.

Yes, I think it would be something fun to do with children. But please make sure to remind them they can't eat them.
