Chocolate Play dough!!!

Need a quick and easy last minute gift for a child?
Why not try this -
Yes, you read that right.
I needed something special to give to the students in my Nursery class at church. They love playing with the normal homemade play dough each week so i decided to make them their own play dough, but with a twist. I also gave them a set of cutters and roller each and put it all into individual gift bags...too easy.

Like this idea? Here is the recipe -

Chocolate Play dough

1 1/2 cups of plain flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup salt

1/2 tablespoon Cream of tartar

1 1/2 tablespoons oil

1 cup water

1. Place all dry ingredients in a medium size saucepan - mix.

2. Add wet ingredients and stir.

3. Stir over low heat until the mixture thickens and forms a ball of dough.

3. Remove from saucepan, cool slightly, then knead until dough is smooth and even coloured.

4. Store in an air-tight container in a dry cool place.

WARNING -Your whole house will smell heavenly :)
