Chocolate+Play dough=FUN!

Here is a quick and simple recipe I found on Foothill Home Companion awhile back. I've made play dough in the past but never thought of adding cocoa to the recipe. mmmmm smells so good I want to eat it.

Chocolate Play Dough

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup salt
1/2 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 tablespoon oil
1 cup water

Mix dry ingredients in a pot. Add wet ingredients and stir together over low heat until a ball of dough forms. Remove play dough from pot and knead by hand until dough is smooth and evenly colored. If it looks too sticky just add some more flour until it reaches that "play dough" texture. ;)

After an hour it started to dry out a bit...No worries! If it dries out...just add a tad more water and oil. That did the trick for ours. Ethan played with this for an hour! P.S. If you are on a diet, stay away from this recipe--It makes your house smell like chocolate. *sigh* Mmmm

Have fun!
