Chocolate & Peanut Butter Playdough

14

I was searching online for a good chocolate playdough and I wasn’t very happy with any of the recipes (it seems like a lot of sites just copy the same play dough recipes from other sites). So I decided to make my own recipe up yesterday and for my first attempt I am very pleased. This recipe tastes great and is a good texture to play with BUT it really does look gross (like poop to be honest but the boys didn’t notice). I gave it to my boys on a plate and after a few minutes of playing with it I gave them mini M&Ms for decorating (eyes and spots). I have to confess that their favorite part was eating it so I didn’t take any pictures of their creations (but Janne below did in a post on her blog).

Here is the recipe, let me know how it works if you try it! I may tweak it next time I make it but here is exactly what I did and it came out yummy:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • about 1 cup powdered sugar (I added 1/2 cup first and then added more to get the right consistency)
  • 3 tablespoons dutch cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons powdered milk (probably could have left it out or used more of it if you want less sugar but I find too much gives a grainy texture)

*I would only give it to the kids on plates because after they squished it and pounded it, it did stick to the plates a bit and I wouldn’t want it on my table. It didn’t stick to their hands though so you don’t have to worry about it being super sticky!

Here are my previous play dough posts:

    That sounds like something we will DEFINITELY have to try. Thanks!

    And thank you for your birthday suggestions on my blog. Great ideas!

    I used dark dutch cocoa powder and I think thats why it wasn’t the best color! Regular cocoa powder makes a more appealing dough.

  3. We may give this a try with sunbutter (made from sunflower seeds) instead of peanut butter since we have an allergic child. It could be fun to have a variety of stuff to decorate the creations like the mini M&M’s… coconut and chocolate chips and so on. :) Thanks for posting this!

    Thanks for this recipe! I had looked all over the internet for an edible playdough, and most had corn syrup, which I’m currently out of…So I decided to try yours, and the girl loves it! It is a little sticky, but I think that’s because I didn’t measure the powdered sugar very well…Thanks again! This is a great savior to a rainy, cold afternoon!
