There are lots of edible playdough recipes out there, most of these use very simple ingredients and are easy to make. Some though, while being edible, really taste pretty unpleasant. This is one of the better tasting recipes using simple peanut butter. So if you want a nice easy guide on how to make peanut butter playdough, look no further.

The great think about this homemade peanut butter playdough is that it’s so easy to make. When I used to play with the real playdough when I was a kid, I always used to love the smell. Although playdough is non-toxic, your not really supposed to eat it. I imagine eating a large amount of the stuff would give you a pretty bad stomach ache. Hence the reason why there are now so many recipes out there for edible playdough. So let’s take a look at the recipe for peanut butter playdough.

Ingredients & Simple Homemade Recipe

The fact is that this homemade recipe is both cheap and easy. There are only a few basic ingredients and it takes no time at all to whip up a batch of the playdough. This is a recipe that involves no cooking and it’s safe to eat when your finished playing with it. So first of all, here are the basic ingredients.

2 cups of powdered sugar

1 cup of peanut butter

½ a cup of honey

That’s pretty much it. Obviously you can double up the ingredients to make large quantities or you can halve them if you want less. I prefer to use the smooth peanut butter as the playdough has a nicer consistency then, but you could experiment by using the crunchy kind if you want to try something different.

The method is very simple. Some recipes require cooking, slowly measuring out ingredients and then adding at different times. This one does not. All you need to do is throw them all into a bowl and get mixing. Mix well and you should get a nice soft fluffy playdough. You will find that when you start playing with the dough it becomes softer and easier to mould. The fact is that kids almost enjoying making the stuff as much as they do playing with it.

What Next?

When you have a nice pile of homemade peanut butter playdough it’s obviously time to play. You should find this is not sticky, it does not stick to surfaces and it should be pretty easy to shape. Of course, when you have had your fun you then have the option of easting it! It tastes rather sweet but most kids will like it although it’s probably not the healthiest of snacks as the there is a lot of sugar in there.

If you don’t eat your playdough and want to put it away and then use it again later, you need to store it in an airtight container. The fact is that this dough will not last forever. Given time it will start to spoil so you can’t keep it forever. For best results store it in the refrigerator and it should last for a few weeks at least.

The fact is there are so many different edible playdough recipes out there. Some are very good, some not so good. With simple ingredients you can create a whole host of different playdough colors, textures and flavours.
