Step 4: While whisking slowly, add a teaspoon at a time of the wet mixture to the dry mixture. A slight fizzing will occur due to the reaction of the ingredients. Continue to add wet mixture into the dry until your mixture is soft and moist. (Note: You may need to use all of your wet mixture, depending on the batch.)

Step 5: Add the mixture to your molds to the top and add glitter for some extra sparkle. The mixture will expand and rise slightly while setting.

Step 6: After letting them set for approximately 2 hours, remove your bath bombs from the molds. (Note: The timing may depend from batch to batch; you’ll know they’re ready when they become firm and are easy to pull out of the molds.)
