Valentine's Day activity for kids : Let's make chocolate playdough
Yum! Tasty chocolate! Chocolates are a must around Valentine's Day!
I wanted to help my brother, Crafty the Chef, make chocolate... But it was a disaster!
Making chocolate is harder than you might think. It's much easier to eat it. I want to make lots of tasty treats too!
So I found this great recipe for chocolate playdough. I won't be able to eat it, but at least I can pretend to be a baker!
Follow the recipe to become a pro candy maker too!
- 2 cups of flour - ½ cup of cocoa powder
- 2 cups of boiling water - 1 cup of salt
- 2 tablespoons of oil - 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar*
(*Cream of tartar looks like flour. You'll find it in your grocery store's spices section)
Mix all ingredients in a big bowl using a spoon.
Mix your dough until it looks like the dough in this photo.
Knead your dough with your hands. Be careful: it might be hot!
Add flour if the dough is too soft, or oil if the dough is too dry.
Once you have the consistency of playdough, you can start using it.
You'll need a sealed container to store it.
You can pretend to bake or make candies! Have fun!
*This playdough is not toxic or bad for your health. But it does NOT taste good! So I recommend you just play pretend.
