Chocolate Playdough

"A simple, edible playdough made with chocolate. Yeah, it's a bit messy, but my kids think it's a lot of fun as well as tasty! (Oh, do I!) :) Yield is approximate."

Ready In:
2 cups


  • 10 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 12 cup corn syrup


  • Melt chocolate chips in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted.
  • Add in the corn syrup, stirring until fully incorporated.
  • Place a piece of wax paper on a baking tray or cookie sheet.
  • Spread chocolate mixture on the wax paper. (Of course, you could do this with a rubber spatula -- but if you use your hands, you can lick your fingers!).
  • Cover the chocolate with another piece of wax paper.
  • Refrigerate until firm.
  • When firm, remove the playdough from the refrigerator.
  • Break off a piece of chocolate dough and form into shapes, rolling the dough in your hand to soften it up a bit. Or, you can try cutting shapes out with cookie cutters.
  • Let the kids eat their creations or save them by placing the dough onto wax paper and storing them in the fridge.
