Recipe by PaulaM-M
This recipe comes from one of my favorite cookbooks,"Dining on a Dime" by Tawra Kellam. I brought this dough, along with lots of kid safe kitchen utensils, to my daughter's daycare. The kids had an absolute ball with it! This recipe yields a dough similar in texture to real play dough, unlike the peanut butter dough recipes I have tried. Food color paste seems to give a brighter, truer shade than liquid but use whatever you have. Enjoy!

Excellent! Made this recipe with a group of children and they enjoyed every minute. I made several colors and used flavored extracts to give each color a matching flavor and scent.
- 1⁄3 cup margarine
- 1⁄3 cup light corn syrup
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 lb powdered sugar (more or less)
- food coloring (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Mix margarine with corn syrup, salt and vanilla extract.
- Add powdered sugar and knead until constancy of play dough.
- Divide and add food coloring of choice to each section. Knead until color is well blended.
- If you are making only one color, it may be easier to add the coloring before the powdered sugar.
- You can use any flavor you choose in place of the vanilla.
- Store in refrigerator when not in use.
- Perfect for party favors and gifts!
