“A simple, edible playdough made with chocolate. Yeah, it's a bit messy, but my kids think it's a lot of fun as well as tasty! (Oh, do I!) :) Yield is approximate.”
2 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 10 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 12 cup corn syrup


  1. Melt chocolate chips in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted.
  2. Add in the corn syrup, stirring until fully incorporated.
  3. Place a piece of wax paper on a baking tray or cookie sheet.
  4. Spread chocolate mixture on the wax paper. (Of course, you could do this with a rubber spatula -- but if you use your hands, you can lick your fingers!).
  5. Cover the chocolate with another piece of wax paper.
  6. Refrigerate until firm.
  7. When firm, remove the playdough from the refrigerator.
  8. Break off a piece of chocolate dough and form into shapes, rolling the dough in your hand to soften it up a bit. Or, you can try cutting shapes out with cookie cutters.
  9. Let the kids eat their creations or save them by placing the dough onto wax paper and storing them in the fridge.
