Valentines Chocolate Playdough Recipe

It's been ages since I made a fresh batch of playdough. Today, I figured it'd be good to make something with a Valentines theme. What could be any better than chocolate?!

The following recipe was really easy and ready to play with in about 15 minutes.

2 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of plain flour
1/2 cup of cocoa
1 cup of salt
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 1/2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
Stir up all the ingredients in a saucepan, over a low heat, until the dough forms. Allow the playdough to cool and then you’re ready to play.
This makes  a dark chocolate coloured playdough with a great smell. If you’d like to make it milder just use more flour and less cocoa, making sure you use 2 cups of the flour/cocoa combination in total. The playdough looks and smells good enough to eat, but of course it isn’t, Chick 2 learnt this the hard way before I'd had a chance to explain it wasn't to eat!!
I had a few empty chocolate boxes left after Christmas. So I showed Chick 2 how to roll the playdough into balls and he spent the morning coming up with games around making chocolates and biscuits for friends and family (I wont go into the bit where he started saying it was 'poo!')
