How To Make Homemade Edible Play Dough with Recipe

We love this frugal recipe for making homemade edible play dough and it only takes about 3 minutes to make! You don't have to worry about your kid's eating this one as it is totally edible! So they can create some fun things with their play dough and then when they are finished they can have a little snack. I do recommend that you have them WASH their hands before playing with this so that they don't "germ" up their dough snack!

Edible Play Dough Recipe

Mix 1 jar of peanut butter (18 ounce)
6 Tbsp. of honey
non-fat dry milk powder (until the correct consistency)

In a large mixing bowl you will want to mix up the creamy smooth peanut butter with the honey. Then start stirring in the dry powdered milk until you get a dough consistency. I recommend doing a tablespoon at a time. Once it is ready...let the kids play with it and then when done they can enjoy a snack!

Additional Tips: If you want colored play dough you can break off balls of the dough and then mix in some cocoa powder for brown chocolate dough or try mixing in some kool-aid drink powder. The cherry flavor makes a nice red or reddish pink dough but you ONLY want to use just a tad of the Kool-aid powder...just a tad to tint the dough. We have also added drops of juice into the mixture and decreased the honey a tad to get tinted a few drops of grape juice (purple grape juice) will help to tint the dough blue.

You do NOT want to store this dough as there is no preservatives in it and it will go let them eat it or dispose of it when they are done.
