Edible Play Dough
Today is such an exciting day!! I’ve been so eager to share our newest play dough recipe with you! It’s incredible, it’s edible, and it just so happens to be play dough (which will make you feel like such a fun mom!). You’ll never believe what this stuff is made of…
When you think of edible play dough, what ingredients do you imagine? Will it taste sweet? Will it have flour? How soft will it feel? I can’t wait to show you….
To reveal my little secret: Yes, it will taste sweet! In fact, if you were a fan of my Ice Cream Play Dough then you’ll LOVE this play dough recipe too!
To get started, you will need:
- 2 1/4 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 cup of Wilton’s Vanilla Filling. If you’re not sure what that is, click HERE to see it
Wilton’s Vanilla Filling is fluffy and it used to make some of your favorite treats as a kid (like Twinkies and Ding Dongs)
Mix the ingredients together in your kitchen mixer (a like a Kitchen Aid, works best).
Add the powdered sugar to the frosting in slow increments, continually scraping the sides of the bowl. Use a slow speed on your mixer (no need to go too fast because this dough is pretty thick). Before you add all of the powdered sugar, touvh the play dough and, if it feels at all sticky, add the rest of the powered sugar in. It WILL take a lot more powdered sugar that it looks like though (just continue to test the “stickyness” and say no to sticky play dough).
Roll it into one big ball and make sure it is not crumbly or sticky. If, by chance, you added a little too much powdered sugar, don’t worry! We aren’t perfect! Simply sprinkle a little olive oil onto the play dough and BOOM! Problem solved!
