Edible Peanut Butter Play Dough



One thing that I don't like to have on hand because of the mess is Play-Do. I shouldn't be so insistent about not having it around, because I really enjoyed playing with it as a child and I was allowed to play with it at Grandma's.... Hmmm.. I don't really recall playing with it at home, though. I guess that's because Grandma doesn't mind the mess.


Whenever my kids play with Play-Do, it ends up getting mashed into the rug or in little Suzie's hair, or getting shoved up a nose or somewhere where you don't want that colorful mess to be.

However, there really isn't a no Play-Do rule in my house and in the winter time I find myself running out of idead for my kids to do that aren't always "Go watch tv or play a video game. Sometimes I like for them to do something productive like clean the house and pick up their toys, but on those days where I JUST DON'T want to hear them arguing with me or picking fights with each other, Play-Do sounds like a pretty good thing to have on hand.... But wait, I don't have any. 

So what should I do?

I know! Make some of my own!

How to Make Edible Peanut Butter Play Dough

What You Need for Play Dough

Making play dough is about the easiest thing you'll ever do in your life. For this recipe, we just have to ingredients: 


  • Any fun things you'd like to bring out. I like to use sprinkles, candy eyes, chocolate chips, and whatever other fun edible things I have left over from previous baking experiments. 



How to Put It Together

Seriously, this is so easy, just mix together 1 cup powdered sugar and 3/4 cups peanut butter. If the dough is still sticky, add more peanut butter.



It's so easy, even I can do it!




I had to hold his hand back for the picture, otherwise, every time I tried to take a picture of him eating the dough, it was already in his mouth being consumed. 


Conclusion

Let me tell you, I was very frustrated when taking pictures for this post. I had cleared a space (because my whole counter is always filled with something) wiped it up, and made the dough without a hitch. 

I took pictures along the way and had some really cute pictures of my son pulling and shaping the play dough, just really digging his fingers into it and making faces with the eye candies and such and then when I went to look at them, my memory card had stopped working! All of those pictures never saved! 

I ended up using my phone to take pictures, but by then, my son was finished with playing and starting to get a little tummy ache from eating so much.

If you don't want to waste the dough and you're not squeemish, you can melt some chocolate and make some peanut butter balls or as Indiana-ites call them- Buck-eyes.

    1. I think the only time I got to play with this as a kid was at school, otherwise I might have been able to play with the real stuff at my grandma's.

  6. I love Buckeyes. I'd probably want to make those instead of playing with the dough, lol. But I love this idea. It's lets your kids create fun dough that they can later eat.

  10. I have made this by accident. I tried to make peanut butter frosting and it was a bit too thick.

  12. Oh my goodness this so easy! I didn't know that was possible to make Play-Doh in two ingredients. My son will love eating it, I mean playing with it. 😀

    1. You can also add some flour, too to keep it from getting stick (which if that happens, just play around with it and it will go back to play do consistency), but flour doesn't taste as good. Haha!

  13. That is such a shame that your camera didn't work for you, it's always the way! But at least your son had fun making the dough.

    1. Thanks! I found out that it was just my memory card. I bought another one, but it was a shame that the old one stopped working since it had so much extra storage on it, but it happens.

  14. It's such a shame I didn't know this back when my son was a toddler, he'd try and eat clay so I just steered clear of the thing until he was around 5. :P Definitely will save this for when my 6 month old daughter is a toddler. :)

    1. Thankfully, the kids didn't go straight to just eating it. They played around for a little while and then ate it after, but limited themselves. haha.

  17. Very nice! This one's a good projects with the kids for their imaginative minds and creative thinnking. I like the idea of edible play doughs!

  18. When kids are younger, you always worry about what they put into their mouth, but unless they are allergic to peanut butter, this is very tasty and you know what's in it.

  19. This is such a cute and creative idea. I can’t believe no one did it for me before as a child. I’ll have to share this with my mommy friends!

    1. Thanks! No one did it for me, either... except maybe one time that I might be remembering from head start or maybe one of those rare times I made cookies with my grandma?
