After the Double Boiler did not melt Hershey’s Chocolate successfully, I got impatient. I put 1 Tablespoon of Hersheys, 1 Tablespoon of Jojoba Oil and 1 Tablespoon of Beeswax (pre-melted) into a microwave safe bowl.
I shoved the bowl into the microwave for 60 seconds. My haste was not rewarded.
After 1 minute and 20 seconds, the batch with the Hershey’s had melted but was not incorporating. I stirred with more vigor. It held together better.
I triumphantly pulled out my frozen knife from the freezer. I plunged the cooled implement into the piping hot mixture. The chocolate, waxes and oils instantly solidified on the frozen knife. The insta-cooled balm was easy to spread on my lips, tasted delicious and the proximity to sugar made me euphoric.
I carefully poured the balm into the clear twist up tubes. There was some cackling with glee and delight as the chocolate started to cool.
1 part Jojoba
