Chocolate Play Dough Recipe!

How to Make Chocolate Play Dough!

The same day that we did the Chocolate Making Kit, (boy did my kids love that!!) I had a surprise for the kids. We made an enormous batch of chocolate play dough! Then, while I read aloud I let the kids have fun.  This was such a huge hit — even my 12 year old came over to check out the action for a while (though it was definitely the girls who had more fun with this).  The play dough cookie molds we had made the play dough look good enough to fool someone, didn’t they?!!

How did we make our chocolate play dough? Here’s the recipe we used:

Into a sauce pan put:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1 Tablespoon cream of tartar
  • 1 Tablespoon oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 drops of glycerine (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

Place the sauce pan on medium heat. Mix until it is a solid mass. (I basically cook it until I can’t stir it any more). Let it cool and knead it. Let the fun begin!

Chocolate-PlayDough-Recipe-PrintableWhen the kids were little, we used to make our own play dough about once every week or two changing it for the seasons.  Instead of the cocoa powder you can substitute 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice (in the Fall) or peppermint extract (during the holiday season). You can add glitter (for a winter theme).  My kids always had a lot of fun with this! I hope yours do too! ~Liesl
