Chocolate Playdough

My girls just love playing with playdough. For that reason, I usually make it at home. There are so many different recipes out there and it's fun to try them all. I recently came across this recipe for chocolate playdough and I thought it would be perfect to make for Valentine's Day! The aroma is heavenly! Although it is not edible, it is still fun! I plan to make a large batch for Felicia to share with her friends at preschool.

Here is the recipe:
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup salt
1/2 Tablespoon cream of Tartar
1/2 Tablespoon oil
1 1/2 cups water

Mix dry ingredients in a medium size saucepan. Add wet ingredients and stir together over low heat until a ball of dough forms. Remove playdough from the saucepan and knead by hand until dough is smooth and evenly colored. Store in an airtight container.


  1. What a great idea. How do you store the play douch? Does the cocoa effect the douch in any way after a period of time?

  2. Oh-I'll have to try this! My mom always made our playdough homemade too bc we liked to eat it!
    This recipe looks fun and yummy!

  3. But this looks so edible! It really does look like fun...

  4. OHHHH I know a few little people who would LOVE this. Sandy you're a genius!

  5. This would be too difficult not to eat! Thanks for the recipe! I'll be including it on OCP tomorrow. See you soon!

  6. If it smells good, I would be tempted to eat it. As I have said before, my willpower sucks!

  7. How do people come up with this stuff? I wouldn't even know where to start to create a recipe like this. Chocolate? Seriously. :) Thanks for passing this along...

  8. Megan-I store the play dough in an air tight cotainer just like any other playdough. I'm not sure what will happen after a period of time because this is the first time I made this one:0)

  9. I will have to save this one for later! My little one would eat it quick!

  10. That is a fun idea. Thank you for sharing!


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
