Edible Playdough

I really love having Ivy help me cook and bake.  She is really getting into the whole thing!

She's come a long way over the last year in her cookie making skills!  And her hat and apron fit a bit better too.

She kind of plays with the dough like playdough and just cuts it up and then squishes it around.

 The only problem is she has a thing for eating the dough which is ok if there isn't eggs, but what doesn't have eggs in it?.  She always sneaks a taste (or 10) and says MMM thats gooood.  Then I tell her she can't eat anyore and we need to bake it first.

 When we were making cookies on Sundays she attempted to be sneaky she grabbed a handful and went and ate it on the couch! 

The little tricker!

So yesterday we made some edible playdough!  The plan is to pull this out when baking so she can play and eat and not get sick.  I found the recipe on Our Best Bites(a personal fave!) in their kids week recipes.   Just watch out its pretty yummy and you'll find yourself sneaking bites too!

1 cup smooth peanut butter
2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup honey
Just mix it all together in your mixer and let your kids go to town! 



  1. I've mentioned making play-doh lately, and now I'm gonna make some yummy stuff...I know Tayvin would try to eat it, so might as well keep it edible. Anyways, I love your blog! I love the ruffly looking wreath, the awesome scarves, etc. I also like how you linked all the things you want to do in the future. I've gotten about half way through the links and am in LOVE with the Jingle box and totally need to make Tayvin a crayon apron like yesterday. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  2. We use a pasturized egg product- liquid eggs for cookies and homeade ice cream. It bakes up just fine and I don't feel bad at all about letting my kids sneak bites.


I la la love hearing from you!
