For our experiment for edible playdough this month I used a no bake chocolate oat and peanut butter cookie recipe and left out an extra bit of oats to make it more manageable.
Chocolate Oat Cookies turned Edible Play Dough
Chocolate Oat & peanut butter cookie recipe:
This is the original recipe for the cookies
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 tablespoons cocoa
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 3 cups oats
Boil sugar, cocoa, butter and milk for 1 min. remove from heat. Add peanut butter, vanilla and oats and stir till mixed. Empty out on waxpaper, roll and cut into squares or roll into balls when cool enough to handle.
For this edible play dough I left out half a cup of oats. Because of the oiliness of the butter and peanut butter the play dough does not stick to the hands.
My 4 year old decided that this chocolate play dough looked like mud and as such he grabbed some cars to play “stuck in the mud” with.
Some construction vehicles were needed to get the cars unstuck as well.
I think this one turned out great! The kids were nibbling on the play dough while playing too 😀
