Edible Hot Chocolate Play Dough Recipe

Thank you for sharing!

My kiddos had so much fun playing with this sweet-smelling hot chocolate play dough (and it's totally edible). I loved how easy it was to make...

It was 10am Saturday and we were bored. My daughter had pneumonia and a grouchy attitude (she had pneumonia for goodness sake!) and we were bored out of our minds. She’d watched 9 million episodes of My Little Pony and Strawberry Shortcake, but even that was getting terribly uncool at that point. Apparently, as mom, I am responsible for my children’s occupational-fun-level (meaning I have to keep them occupied with fun things?! what?!). Enter my newest idea: Edible Hot Chocolate Play Dough Recipe. Everything needs to be edible (or taste-safe, because it’s not like you really want to eat this stuff once you taste it), since our kiddo is like, 2, so this stuff is safe to play with and to nosh on (although it’s kinda yucky tasting even if it smells awesome).

Why I make Play Dough for my Kiddos

I don’t like to be all preachy about why I do what I do, I just like to do it and put it out in the world, but with this, I think it’s important to share why I would make play dough for my kids. See, the thing is, we need strong hands. In an age where we use computers to type constantly, we use our phones like constant interpersonal communication attachments, we really need our fingers to be strong. And, because I want my kiddos to be able to play instruments, write with a strong hand, and have control over their fine motor skills, I totally want to turn play into a muscle-building activity. So, it’s really a multi-part reasoning. I think it’s fun, too, but since I’m not JUST having fun with them, it’s kinda awesome.
