Edible Play-dough

If your child is anything like mine, they enjoy eating foods that are "off-limits" more than those that they are supposed to be eating. Emma LOVES to eat play-dough and because we had so many issues with getting her to eat I didn't want to tell her no in fear that she'd stop putting anything in her mouth, so this a great solution.
Obviously you can use any nut butter you like and as much or as little honey. Make sure to use whole milk powder for the most bang for your buck!


about 18 oz. of peanut butter
about 6 tbsp. of honey
about 1 1/2 cups of powdered milk

Mix all ingredients well. Add powdered milk until the playdough is workable with your hands. This is a fun recipe for kids to play with and certainly has a yummy taste. Optional: Use raisins, nuts, or candy to decorate. Don't forget to eat!
