Easy inexpensive one.

Top Review by Shuzbud

I can't vouch for this being everlasting yet but so far it looks great! It has the right consistency and is very easy to make. I'll test it out on my nephew tomorrow! Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Update: this was very successfully made into a dog, penguin, bone, pizza, rabbit and so on and was just as springy at the end of it all. Very popular with the family- even the adults were impressed!! It's nice that it even smells authentic- when I make this for my class I will add a range of essential oils or flavouring extracts to enhance the experience! Thanks again!
