Step 8:
Melt some more clear soap base in the microwave. (The amount you need will depend on the size of your mold and how much space the chunks fill. For ours, we used about 4 more ounces of soap.) Do not add any color. You can add more fragrance if you wish, although it is not necessary since the chunks are already scented.

Step 9:
Pour the clear base over the chunks until each cavity is filled, and allow the soaps to cool completely.

Step 10:
When the soaps are completely cool, pop them out of the molds using your thumbs. If you have trouble getting them out, try placing them in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or so and try again. Wrap them in plastic and give as festive, homemade holiday gifts!
