Edible Chocolate Peanut Butter Playdough

   Jax is a big helper.  He loves to be involved in everything we are doing.  So, today I thought it would be fun if we "cooked" something.  So we drug his table into the kitchen and went to work.

    Jax likes to help pour ingredients into a bowl.  Stirring is fun too, though keeping everything in the bowl is a challenge.  But he is a guy after my own heart, because tasting is his favorite part!  He really enjoyed our playdough adventures. 
    Jax is really into choo-choos right now, so we made him a train.  He quickly ate the smokestack right off!  It was nice to have something we could play with and he could taste without me having to tell him no.  We made a mess, but we had so much fun!



Edible Chocolate Peanut Butter Playdough

Ingredients:

3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa

  1. Mix together all ingredients
  2. Add water until it starts to come together (I added 8 tablespoons)
  3. When the mixture is still a little crumbly, but not to powdery, work it with your hands.  It should come together to make a playdough consistency.  Adjust by adding a few drops more water or a little more flour

    1. It might have tasted too good though, we spent as much time tasting as playing!! We really enjoyed it though. Thanks for hosting!

    1. He loves to help in the kitchen, so it was fun to make something he could really dive right into! Plus if we didn't like what we designed, we could just eat it!
