Peeps Playdough

Yes, you read that right!

Yesterday, Eliel and I made some edible playdough out of Peeps!  I had seen people raving about it on Facebook and with the weather being so crummy, I thought it would be a fun indoor activity to try!

The 'recipe' is as follows:
4 Peeps (any flavor/shape)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
3 tablespoons of powdered sugar

Not a very healthy snack but sometimes it's okay to cheat a little (although when Eliel cheats with sugar, Mommy pays for it later!)

Basically, you put the Peeps and oil in a bowl and microwave it for 10-15 seconds.  This is half the fun because as most of you know, Peeps are a BLAST to put in the microwave so long as they don't explode! Upon taking them out, sprinkle some powdered sugar over them and start mixing.  It will quickly turn into a ball and become somewhat gooey.  Keep adding sugar and stirring until you have a nice ball of playdough.  Then, before grabbing it, rub some powdered sugar on your hands to keep it from sticking to you.

Eliel was amazed that we 'made' playdough.  He kept poking it, squeezing it and rolling it into balls. 

Where did the Peeps go?
I love making a mess!

Then, I showed him that he could eat it.  The result was hilarious!

After eating a 'rocket ship', a ball, and a snake, Eliel decided that he didn't want to eat anymore.  He'll eat sweets but luckily he doesn't have a sweet tooth. He had fun making and playing with it though!  You should try it even if you don't want to play with it!  It tastes yummy!
