I made this with few modifications; I reduced the honey to 1 cup as some reviews said the dough was to sticky; also I didn't have any powdered milk so I used confectioner's sugar (2 cups). I found the dough was still a little too sticky so I added about a 1/2 cup wheat bran. It turned out great and the kids thought it was so cool that they could eat the play dough after they were done.

i thought i would try this recipe as it has no refined sugar, but i was very dissapointed in the results. the kids could not play with it because it was to oily to roll out, so i added powdered sugar to it which only made it very sticky and tacky from the honey i am guessing. i did not follow the other review about using flour because i thought it would make it taste to bad for the kids to enjoy eating it after playing with it. i will try some other recipes that i have found.--update-- i covered dough in powdered sugar and wrapped in wax paper, let it sit for a few days. was okay to work with but still very oily.

I gave this a 4 because it is too sticky/oily when made exactly like this, although it may depend on the kind of peanut butter you use. I like to add oatmeal, raisins or craisins, seeds or nuts, even some ground flax meal to make it even more nutritious. Can shape into balls and refrigerate or press into a pan and cut into squares. My husband and I love them as a quick breakfast, and our 1-yr-old son can't get enough of them!

You can increase or decrease this for the number of kids you have...just keep everything in equal parts. If you want the dough to be a little firmer, add some flour.

I doubled the powdered milk, and it is tasty, workable, and fun! My five year old loves it. :)

This was okay. My daughter & her cousin thought it was fun to play with (& eat!), but they didn't ask for more. I thought it could've tasted better, and it was a bit oily like other reviewer said.

definitely too sticky. this should have more of the milk powder or another dry ingredient added. i've also used crushed graham crackers, rolled into an oval for a body of a bee, chocolate chips for eyes, and sliced almonds for wings. you can also melt chocolate chips, put them into a baggie, snip off the tip, and make stripes on the body. it's a big hit with my kids!

My 2 1/2 year old loves this - I didn't have any powered milk so I used fat-free dry coffee creamer and it worked fine. She is having a ball making all kinds of treats with it.
