Edible Play Dough

I saw this great post today on Make & Takes and had to share with our readers. My suggestion is NOT to do this activity on a day when you are craving sweets. I love that this is edible, because no matter what my sneaky kids eat the play dough they play with. The store bought kind is salty and nasty, but they eat it. Why they will sneak little bites of that, but refuse to eat bites of their dinner that certainly taste better is beyond me.

Play Dough You Will Actually Want To Eat

(from Make & Takes)

- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 cups powdered sugar

Mix ingredients in a bowl and you’re done! Store in an airtight container or plastic baggie with air sucked out of the bag. (Quick tip: Spray your 1/2 cup with oil before measuring your honey and the honey will pour much easier.)

This recipe had a great consistency! Of course, the more you play with it the softer it gets, but it was not sticky and it was just what I was expecting peanut butter playdough to be. The taste was okay. Any kid would think it was delicious. I thought it was a little too sweet, but again…it’s really for PLAYING, so it was perfect!


  1. Thanks, it is raining here today so we needed something fun to do! Plus I have all of the ingredients!

  2. I can imagine my kiddos would love to play with play dough that they can eat! We may have to give this a try! :-)

  3. I just laughed out loud at this recipe, my youngest was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and has a certain affinity for playdough (or really any dough)...I can't even imagine how I'd correctly measure the carbs in this to properly dose his insulin! :)
