Edible Play Dough

So I dont know about where you are but here in the UK the weather has been FREEZING. Literally. They say this is the coldest winter in 30 years. WOW!! The schools have been shut and in fact my daughter only just went back from her Christmas holidays today. In the meantime I have been trying to find things to do with her (6years old) and my little boy (2 years old) After exhausting all the resources and playing outside until we were almost frost bitten I decided lets make some edible play dough. Mine LOVED IT! They loved being able to play with the play dough and eat it at the same time. I have to admit it is pretty Yummy! Plus it is just made from things which most people, myself included, have in the pantry at home! Here is the recipe I use!

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
2 cups powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, using your hands. Dough should feel soft and pliable. Form shapes and be creative!

We got chocolate chips out, Sprinkles, marshmallows whatever we could find around the house for them to eat as well. It is so much fun!

Storage: When not using, MUST be stored in an airtight container.

I know what you are thinking... It cant be that easy but honest it is! Enjoy! Oh and try not eat too much! :)
