This rich moisturizer is great for extra-dry skin or classic rough skin spots, such as feet, knees and elbows. Also, this recipe can be used as the ultimate massage balm. Warm up a small amount between your palms and treat a loved one to a decadent and relaxing massage for chocolate lovers. MAKES 4 OUNCES.

• 1/4 cup grated cocoa butter
• 1 tablespoon grated dark chocolate

• 1 tablespoon grated beeswax

1. Place all ingredients in a microwave-safe container or on the stovetop in a double boiler. Melt gently, stirring often.
