Chocolate Playdough

If it isn't red on Valentine's Day then it should be chocolate. Make some Chocolate Play Dough using this recipe from A Foothill Home Companion for your little one to play with on Valentine's Day.

What you need

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup salt
1/2 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 tablespoon oil
1 cup water

What you do:

Mix dry ingredients in a medium size pot. Add wet ingredients and stir together over low heat until a ball of dough forms. Remove play dough from pot and knead by hand until dough is smooth and evenly colored. Store in airtight container.

Very cool idea. I made play dough last week for the first time in years. I added vanilla and the kids loved the smell. So chocolate is definitely on the menu!!! We made pretend cupcakes with our dough and tinted it with food coloring. Thanks for all your great ideas, LOVE THEM!

I'm afraid I might want to eat that if I made it. :}

I've never heard of this. Brilliant! Although, I've banned playdough from my house until the spring when they can take it outside. I'll try it then!

We make ours with Kool Aid packs for vibrant colors and wonderful scents! Don't worry Teresa, it may LOOK and SMELL good, but there is so much salt in the recipe no matter what it tastes AWFUL!! Great idea though, I will try this variant for sure!
