Edible Playdough

I had my first attempt at making play-dough for my 2 year old recently.  In my spare time (yeah, right!), I have had a few seconds to look for non-toxic play-dough. There are a few out there, but they are so expensive, so I decided to make my own edible version.  It came out well, but, I would like to find a recipe down the road that is not so sweet.  Here is what I did:

*1 1/2 -2 cups of peanut butter (smooth)
*2 cups powdered sugar
*1/2-3/4 cup honey

Mix the three ingredients together in a bowl.  I have ranges because not all peanut butter and honey has the same consistency.  Start with the smaller measurements, then add more as needed until you reach the desire consistency.

My son had a ball playing with his play-dough.  I pulled out all kinds of cookie cutters, pie crust cutters, and some springerle cookie molds (you can read more about these HERE.)

These are from William Sonoma and are the best!

Some Springerle forms I have

Do any of you have a version that is not so sweet or any other fun edible play-dough recipe?


  1. Wow. Never imagined this is possible. have you tried mixing raw cacao nibs and raw cacao powder in it? I bet it is delish!

  2. I think you can use powdered milk in place of powdered sugar. :)
