Our Chocolate Bakery!

I saw a post on Pinterest the other day to make homemade chocolate play dough and thought I would give it a go with my 2 kiddies on a rainy afternoon. It was so simple and smelt amazing! The recipe and method we used was as follows:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp cream of tarter
  • 1 cup salt

Mix all the ingredients in a large saucepan. Stir constantly over a medium heat. Once a ball is formed, take off the heat and allow to cool. Then knead for a while and that is it!!! Simple and it smells so good! My daughter commented that our home smelt like a chocolate bakery! So we decided to set up a chocolate bakery for the afternoon! I set the kids up on the table with cookie cutters, food bags, sequins/beads to decorate with and a play cash till. We also had a play phone for me to call the ‘bakery’ with my sweet treat orders! We had great fun and played for hours. My little boy usually struggles to hold his attention for longer than 5 minutes so this was a big hit! Recommended activity!

    1. Thank you! It’s a lot of fun and the smell is amazing! We can play this for hours pretending to order, making the different treats and decorating. Its good for number skills as well if you use a play till and money. Have fun! 🙂
