This is a recipe we used to make when my daughter was in girl scouts. It was
Great Fun! P.B. in WI.

Edible Play Dough
1 c. Powdered Milk -Dry
1 c. Creamy Peanut Butter
1 c. Honey
In a bowl, combine all ingredients. Chill. Shape into faces, letters, shapes, etc.
or cut out with cookie cutters. If mixture is too sticky, roll in additional
powdered milk. Decorate with raisins, chocolate chips or other candy. Make
sure the child washes their hands first so that when play time is over their
works of art can be eaten as a snack!

My Mother, (who had thirteen children), was an only child and raised by her
German grandmother. When we played on long winter days, she would make us
"Peanut Butter Balls", or if she was out of peanut butter, it was "Jello Balls".

The PBB's consisted of
Peanut Butter
Powdered Milk (no water added)
Mixed together to get the consistency of play dough, and shape into balls, or
anything you desire, then eat! They will be sweet, but not to overwhelm &
nutritious! (my sister would use honey in place of sugar for her PBB's for her
children, she had to add more Powdered Milk to make up for the extra liquid-
so have Fun!!!!)

The Jello Balls were made very much the same way & consisted of
A package of Jello (with sugar in it)
Powdered Milk (no water added)
A small amount of butter or oleo (to get consistency of "dough you could play
with" Mix together & make balls, or any other design you desire!

--Another recipe--

This recipe came from "Feed Me, I'm Yours" by Vicki Lansky. I have been
making it for years. First as a babysitter (in the early 80's) and now as a mom.
Play dough A La Peanut Butter
Mix: 1 jar of peanut butter (18 oz.)
6 Tablespoons honey
Add Non-fat dry milk powder or milk powder plus flour to create a dough
consistency (amount changes depending on fat content of peanut butter)
Optional: add carob or cocoa powder for chocolate flavor.
Hope that is the recipe. Alyssa, San Diego, CA
