Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap - Chocolate Play Dough

*****Don't forget to enter the Lunapad Giveaway HERE.

So I've mentioned before that I'm teaching a class at out local co-op on chocolate. We've done an archaeological dig with the M & M's in our cookies, (graphing) designed our own candy bars, (art) wrote poems about chocolate (language arts) did M & M multiplication (math), made ice cream in sandwich bags (science) and a gazillion games and other chocolatey things to fill the time. And just when I was about to run out of ideas the good old Internet came to the rescue and I found a recipe for Chocolate Play Dough. So the kids and I whipped up a few batches tonight and had so much fun with it. It's definitely not edible (blech) but it smells so yummy! So if you want something new for the kids to play with, here you go.

Chocolate Play Dough from

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup salt
1/2 Tablespoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 Tablespoons cooking oil
1 cup boiling water

We've made chocolate playdough before, we actually got the recipe from the bonus features of Veggie Tales "Larry Boy and the Bad Apple". I believe it used real chocolate (not powder) and we ate it, it was yummy!
