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. 


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.
