White Chocolate Body Butter

In the winter I love and cling to just about anything that will keep my skin smooth, soft, and moisturized since I have a tendency to dry up. Since we’ve moved to an area with higher humidity I thought for some reason that this issue might get a little better but I was wrong about that.

I’ve always loved my Homemade Coconut Oil Lotion and out Homemade Lotion Bars but this time I wanted to make a lotion that was just a little more “special” than normal. Something a little more luxurious to give me that “pampered” feeling. Thus this super simple, yet super amazing White Chocolate Whipped Body Butter recipe was born.

–This Homemade Hand Cleaner is great to exfoliate and moisturize dry hands too.

Last month I picked up some cocoa butter on Amazon to try it out and come up with some new recipes with it. Cocoa Butter is a fat extracted from the cocoa bean. Not only is it used to make chocolates (as long as you get food grade) but it’s also used in lotions, ointments, and other body products. Cocoa Butter is high in antioxidants so it will help fight free radicals (so it’s a good ingredient to add to Homemade Sunblock!), and since it’s high in fatty acids it will help deeply heal skin issues. Pair this with the ever amazing Coconut Oil and you’ve got the perfect ingredients for an amazing lotion!

What You Need:

White Chocolate Whipped Body Butter

How to Make:

In a saucepan (or in a double boiler that you rig up such as mine pictured above), heat the coconut oil and cocoa butter until melted.

Pour the melted mixture into a container and stick it in the fridge for a while until it firms up and hardens.

With a hand mixer, whip the mixture until light and fluffy. Make sure to store it in a cool area. If it gets too warm and melts, simply place the homemade cocoa butter lotion back in the fridge and re-whip once it has cooled.

  1. I haven’t tried it yet but I read on another site’s recipe for laundry detergent that most blender blades are able to screw on to canning mason jars….if so and you start with a sterilized jar than you could possibly skip the step of transferring containers…

  2. I’m gonna need a mini-frig in my bathroom for all the wonderful coconut oil recipes. I live in FL and it gets to 81* in my house.

  3. Love how simple this looks! I still haven’t gotten around to making my own whipped body butter, but this looks easy enough. Add a little vitamin E oil and you could call it stretch mark cream!

  4. I have a similar one I recently made only I also added shea butter. My only problem is that it gets hard (we are in Iowa and it is cold right now. We are “put on a sweater” people, not “kick up the heat” people so our house is around 64/day and 59/night). I came up with two solutions. I used the mixture as is and poured it into an empty deodorant container and use it as a roll on. In the rest I added some olive oil and then it whipped into a nice butter that doesn’t get hard.

  5. I’m allergic to Coconut,what other ingrediant would work???
    Sounds soothing,Will attempt to whip some up’

  6. Wow! That does sound easy. I’m going to have to try this. even though it is rainy here in Alaska, my skin is drying out.


  7. Just stumbled on your site a few min ago…would LOVE to try this. Have a quick question? Is this economical to make, I mean does it really save money to make my own?? It looks Fantastic and I want it NOW and also would LOVE to make some of these things for family and friends.

    1. It depends on what you compare it to. If you are comparing it to a lotion you can pick up at the dollar store, then no, that would be cheaper, but if you compare it to what is actually comparable (an organic lotion), then yes, it’s well worth it to make your own. We make our own so we know exactly what is going onto our skin 🙂

  8. I have just used straight coconut oil, or, for more moisture, crisco whipped with lavender essential oil but I think I am going to order some cocoa butter and try this. It sounds luscious! !!!

  9. Does this leave a greasy feel to your skin? Coconut oil is so, well, oily, when warmed, just curious is anyone had used this? Will I get get coconut grease spots everywhere this touches or does the cocoa butter stop that?

  10. i want to try this. i was wondering though, what could be substituted for the coconut (my daughter is highly allergic to any form of coconut).

  11. This looks so yummy I could eat it! (I probably could!) I, too would like to know what could be substituted for the coconut oil?

  12. I love this idea ! When this is warmed, it feels and smells heavenly and is easy to rub in. My hands feel less chapped already 🙂 Very soothing. But I do have a query: Our house is 65 degrees in the day (Indiana). I made the recipe just as printed but was unable to “whip” the mixture. As soon as we started just stirring the cooling mixture with a spoon, it hardened up. If I break off a small chunk, I can melt it in my hands but creamy it is not 🙁 What am I doing wrong or is it just too cold here ? I love to warm some of this and use it after doing dishes or showering. I wish I could keep it in the soft or liquid stage.

  13. Sounds fantastic! I already use coconut oil as a mosturizer, and I love it. And I think instead of coconut oil you could substitute any other oil of your choice, but you may have to add more Shea/cocoa butter to make it thicker

  14. This sounds so luxurious. Love body butter, sugar scrubs, all that good stuff. And white chocolate? Yes, please. Thanks so much for sharing at Inspire Me Wednesday. Featuring you in this week’s issue.

  15. I love making body butters. I bet this smells really good. Thanks for sharing the party @DearCreatives Pinned. Happy New Year!

  16. Wow, this is amazingly simple! My skin gets really dry in the winter so I’m always on the hunt for something that will keep it moisturized. I need to get some cocoa butter so I can try this. Thanks for sharing, stopping by from the Inspiration Spotlight party.

  17. I made some of the body butter last evening. It was wonderful! However, I went to use it this morning and it had hardened up. 🙁 Could I have possibly over mixed it? Any suggestions on how to keep it in the “buttery” state? (We keep our home at 70 degrees.) Thanks!

    1. This lotion will hard up since cocoa butter gets hard when in temps below 75. You could always add a little shea butter or an extra “soft” butter in the mix next time to keep it softer at a wider range of temps.

  18. i plan to make the white chocolate body butter! Sounds yum Yummy! I also plan to make lavender !
    Thanks for the recipe! Dee

  19. Hi. I am trying to make it as we speak. I’m wondering if it can be used as a personal lubricant, or a love potion, if you know what I mean..lol
    I’m also wondering if cocoa butter can be used instead of cacao butter.?

    Thank you.
