Peanut Butter Play-Dough

This past week I had a house full of kids, so I decided to make them some edible play dough. This recipe was great and made a bunch for another day!

3 1/2 cups peanut butter
4 cups confectioners' sugar
3 1/2 cups honey
4 cups dry milk powder

1. In large bowl, cream together peanut butter and confectioners' sugar, then beat in honey and fold in milk powder. Divide into 15 equal portions and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.

I mixed all of the ingredients in the mixer in the order stated above, but had trouble when I added the milk powder. It was just way too thick! So I turned it out onto my counter and mixed it with my hands, which took a while, but worked really well. The kids LOVED this. And they loved that they could eat it. My nephew was really hesitant because he said it would make him sick(bless his heart for being obedient and not eating regular Play-Doh!), but once I told him that this was different he tried it and liked it. They didn't eat very much, they more just tasted it and then played with it. My younger daughter sat and played for a full hour, 30 minutes after everyone else had left the counter!
Also, I tried it with organic peanut butter and it was way too sticky, so I added a little Jiffy and that seemed to help.
