4 Easy Edible Playdough Recipes

2 min read

Do your children spend more time eating their playdough than playing with it?

Surely it doesn’t taste that good! Here are a few recipes for edible playdough… but watch out, they’ll definitely end up eating more of it than playing with it now!

1. Peanut Butter Playdough

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup milk powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • food colouring (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until desired consistency is achieved. Wrap firmly in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.

2. Allergy Free Edible Playdough

  • 1/3 cup margarine
  • 1/3 cup glucose syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups icing sugar
  • food colouring (optional)

Mix the margarine, glucose syrup, salt and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add the icing sugar and knead until smooth. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
Glucose syrup can usually be found in the cake section of the supermarket.

3. Easy Edible Playdough

  • 1 packet cake mix
  • 250 grams softened butter
  • 3 tablespoons water

Mix cake mix and butter in a large bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until desired consistency is achieved. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.

4. Chocolate Playdough

  • 1 cup cooking chocolate
  • 1/4 cup glucose syrup

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water.  Stir the chocolate until smooth. Add the glucose syrup and stir until combined. The chocolate will stiffen almost immediately, but persist and it will combine and become easier! Place into a ziplock bag and refrigerate until firm.  Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
