The secret ingredients? Frosting and powdered sugar! The two ingredients come together to make the softest, fluffiest, and coolest play dough you can make. You can use white frosting, as we did, or you can use colored frosting. Or, you can add a couple of drops of food coloring!


  • 1 cup of pre-made frosting
  • cups of powdered sugar

Tools Needed: 

Edible play dough ingredients

Place the powdered sugar in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Slowly add the powdered sugar to the bowl while mixing on low speed. Continually scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure all of the ingredients are mixed. Stir in additional powdered sugar to the mixture until the consistency isn’t sticky but more soft and fluffy.

If, by chance, you added a little too much-powdered sugar, don’t worry! We aren’t perfect and this is a fun recipe! Simply sprinkle a little olive oil or coconut oil into the homemade playdough and BOOM! Problem solved! Edible playdough recipes should all be this easy:) The leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator, but the dough is best used at room temperature. A microwave can be used for a few seconds to warm the frosting back up!
