i know i’ve seen this recipe for a long time…just never made it.
but i am teaching a week long camp at the museum based on pioneer days and i wanted a “baking” looking color to go with our enamel dishes. usually i do a plain play doh with a bit of cinnamon.
this year i also made a batch of chocolate play dough…the first batch not working (way too crumbly…not sure what happened). very quickly the chocolate and cinnamon/vanilla batches are blended.
chocolate play dough:
combine (i do all the mixing in my kitchen aid):
1.5 cups flour
.5 cup cocoa
3 tsp cream of tartar
2 cups water
1 cup salt
2 tbs oil
mix it all together (at this point i had to add quite a bit of extra flour…not sure how much)
