The perfect candle for the cold winter months! The Cafe Mocha Candle looks exactly like a cafe mocha and smells like one, too. The tantalizing scent and true to life look of this candle have fooled many. It looks so good, you’ll want to drink it!
- Adhere a Candle Dot in the center of the Glass Mug.
- Take a Candle Wick that is suited for your sized Mug and strongly push the Wick onto the Candle Dot. (To find a wick that is right for your mug: measure the diameter of the widest part of your container, look at our Wick Chart, and under the Natural Wax Suggested Applications column find the diameter of your container. This will give you some wick suggestions that will work well.)
- Place the Wick through the Wick Holder’s hole and center the Wick in the Mug.
- Take enough C-3 Wax to fill the mug and melt the wax using your preferred method. (One pound of soy wax by weight will equal approximately 18 ounces of liquid wax when melted. If you have a 15 ounce mug, one pound of wax by weight would suffice.)
- Completely melt the Soy Wax and get it to a temperature of 160-180 degrees F.
- Stir in some Brown Dye until the desired shade is reached. Remember you can always add more, you cannot take away. Our example only used a few shavings to achieve the color we wanted.
- Thoroughly mix in the Mocha Cream Fragrance Oil. We recommend using 1.5 ounces of fragrance oil per pound of wax.
- Allow the temperature of the Wax to lower to 150-160 degrees F.
- Slowly pour the Soy Wax into the Mug. Fill the Wax to within one inch of the top of the Mug.
- Gently tap the sides of the Mug to release any air pockets.
- Allow the candle to cool.
- After the candle has fully cooled, take the Wick Holder off of the Wick.
- Melt enough 2526 Wax to fill the top of the Mug. (One pound of paraffin wax by weight will equal approximately 20 ounces of liquid wax when melted. If you have a 15 ounce mug, 5 ounces of paraffin by weight would probably work.)
- Completely melt the Paraffin Wax and get it to a temperature of approximately 180-190 degrees F.
- Stir in a tad of Mocha Cream FO. (If you have a 15 ounces mug, 1/2 ounce would work well.)
- Allow the Paraffin Wax to cool down. Note–You have to work fast during this step. When the Wax starts thickening, take the Fork and begin whipping the Wax. Once the Wax is whipped up, take the Fork and plop the Paraffin Wax into the Mug. Being sure to push the Wax against the sides of the Mug and all around the Wick. How much “whipped topping” you add to the top is purely personal preference.
- Let the wax finish cooling completely and you have a scrumptious Cafe Mocha Candle!
