Peanut Butter Playdough

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

This treat can serve as edible play dough (just make sure the kiddies wash their hands before playing with it). Children can mold and shape while eating it. It's a great after school snack. Store extra portions in plastic bags in refrigerator or freezer.


  1. In large bowl, cream together peanut butter and confectioners' sugar, then beat in honey and fold in milk powder.
  2. Divide into 15 equal portions and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.

I enjoyed making this so much when I was a child and I am so excited to find the recipe here so that I can share it with my daughters! This is so fun to make, shape, and then, of course, EAT! It really tastes great. An alternative is to mix in rice crispies. When I was little, we didn't add the powdered milk, but I do like this as a healthier version -- the kids won't even know it!

Not recommended for infants under 12 months due to peanuts having allergenic potential.

Made this with the kids, great summer boredom buster and it smells (and tastes!) way better than Play-Doh! Just be careful not to get it on clothes, the peanut butter will leave a grease stain. Also FYI, honey is safe for children over 1 year. Under one year cannot have it b/c it is not pasteurized and therefore small risk of botulism.
