Chocolate Play Dough

If your littlest one is missing out on enjoying chocolate with the rest of the family this Easter, why not make some chocolate play dough for them to explore!

Our franchisee Kate, made some for the Tots Play Easter parties she held recently and explains here how to make it and what the Tots thought about it.

"My home-made chocolate playdough went down really well at our Easter Parties recently!

It smelt amazing and the little ones loved playing with it, using lots of Easter cookie cutters and textured rolling pins, or just feeling the texture and taking in the smell!

Here's how to make it if you would like a go at home! Older little ones can help you give it a stir (not once the boiling water is added though!):

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of plain flour

  • ½ cup cocoa powder

  • 1 cup of salt

  • 2 tbs vegetable oil

  • 2 tbs cream of tartar

  • 1.5 to 1.75 cups of boiling water

To make:

  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl

  • Add the boiling water (needs to be boiling not just warm) and mix until the dough starts to come together

  • Pop the dough onto a clean surface and give it a good kneading

  • Keep in an airtight container for up to a month

Enjoy!"
