Valentine's Day Fun: Chocolate Play Dough

This yummy looking box of chocolates isn't what you'd expect: it's Chocolate Play Dough! This is something I found that just as fun to make as it is to use. Our homeschool topic this week is everything Valentine's Day, so thanks to some great online sites and the local library we've got fun projects like this, tasty treats to make, learning about the symbols of Valentine's Day and of course lots of cards to create. So much fun!!


2 cups of water
1/2 cup salt
2T vegetable oil
2T cream of tartar
1/3 cup cocoa
3 cups flour

Bring water & salt to a boil. Stir in remaining ingredients. Allow to cool slightly. Knead until smooth. Easy to make using stuff already in the house and it keeps for 4wks in an airtight container.


  1. I knew someone would say that. Yes, this play dough is also good for making pretend poo, which I think kids may enjoy doing more than fake chocolate.

  2. very cute idea!


Getting your comments brightens my day. I'd love if you left one:)
