Hot chocolate playdough

One of my daughter’s favorite drinks is hot chocolate. It can be pushing 90 degrees out with 100% humidity and she will still ask for hot chocolate. We have made cookies, cakes, pudding, and so many more edible treats with hot chocolate mix but I wanted to try something totally new. We like making our own play dough and slime.

This Hot Chocolate PlayDough Recipe is super simple actually. If you have made play dough before, or even if you haven’t, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Ingredients Needed:

1 Cup of Hot Chocolate Mix
2 Cups Of Flour
3/4 Cup Of Salt
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup + 3 TBS Water
1/4 Cup Of Oil

Instructions:

We mixed all of the dry ingredients together with a fork in one bowl. Next we added the oil and stirred. It looked like brownie mix. I highly doubt with all the salt and baking soda that it tasted like brownie mix, but it sure looked like it!

Next we slowly added the water and mixed at the same time. Stir until ball starts to form. Take the ‘ball’ out and drop on floured surface.

Winter Playdough REcipe

We first played with coffee cups. We filled and ‘poured’ and my daughter pretended to work at a coffee shop, serving me my favorite drink.

We played with chocolate chips, mixing in pretending to make chocolate chip cookies. We also added some marshmallows.

Winter Activity for Kids

I loved this because it wasn’t anymore expensive than regular play dough and it has a double sensory aspect. Not only is playing with play dough a sensory activity on its own, but the scent that comes from this recipe is phenomenal.

Whether you are making this for a classroom or for home, whether it’s close to Christmas, National Chocolate Day (on October 28), Hot Chocolate Day (on January 31),  or a random Wednesday in February – this is a MUST make!
