Cranberry Orange Bubbleroons


Bubble Bar Recipe

Dry ingredents
1 cup sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSA)
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch


Wet ingredients
1/2 cup liquid glycerin
1 tbsp oil (I used olive oil)
1 tbsp water
1 tsp fragrance oil (I used cranberry orange)
1 tbsp vanilla color stabilizer
red and orange food coloring


Extras

sprinkles 




First, I put the dry ingredients in my kitchen aid and move on to the wet ingredients. With the wet ingredients you want to first measure them out and then stir them together until all ingredients are well incorporated. This is really important because if you don't mix them first your bubble bars won't stick together. Next, you want to mix wet and dry ingredients. When mixing everything together you will want to cover your kitchen aid because the SLSA can get into the air and make you cough and cause discomfort (some people like to wear a mask when working with SLSA but that is optional). After mixing everything you are ready to mold your bubble bars. Note if your mixture is not sticking together now it won't stick together later so you need to add more glycerin until a dough like consistency is achieved. 


Now to form your cookies. I just molded them with my hands until they looked like little cookies. (Make sure you have an even number of cookies)

Next I filled my cookies with the macaroon filling. For this I added a little more glycerin and oil to make the filling easier to work with. Then I put it in a sandwich bag and used that to pipe the frosting.

Now to decorate:) I dusted the tops of the cookies with some super pearly white mica from bramble berry and then put some orange sprinkles on the tops:)


Let dry for a few hours before using or gifting.
To use
Hold bubble bar under running water and watch the bubbles form:) Be careful, your tub may become slick when using bath products like this.
