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.

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.
