My 10 yr. old made this for a school demonstration project - everyone enjoyed it! We experimented with blending the pre-measured dry milk powder in blender to make it more smooth- and we liked that, too. Original recipe makes alot, we scaled it down to 2 servings and it was plenty for a snack for our 4 kids. A tasty and healthy snack!!A+

I teach preschool and my students loved this recipe. We mixed each ingredient at a time. Each student was given a little dry milk on a tray and a handful of the peanut butter mixture. The mixture was kneaded by the students until smooth, this was a great sensory activity! All of my students loved the taste, what an added bonus!

I had this recipe years ago when my daughter was a toddler and it was terrific! So easy and non-toxic ! What a great alternative to the store product. I made a copy for the mother of a toddler that lives next door so she can enjoy it. Her grandmother recently told me that she kept putting the store brand in her mouth and she had to throw it out, so I'm sure she'll appreciate it.

My two year old loves this! Similar to what my mother used to make for me as a child. I prefer to half the recipe and like to use corn syrup in place of the honey for a lighter flavor. I've also found that sifting the powdered milk before adding creates a smoother textured dough.

Only used the first two ingredients like others suggested and it worked great! My two year old loved to have playdough she could eat, though just a few bites was plenty for a snack! And cutting the recipe down to 5 servings, there's still plenty left in the fridge for another day. Thanks for the recipe of a fun treat we all remember as kids!

This was really fun! Substituted Maple syrup for honey. Kids loved it and have plenty to play with for snack tomorrow! We reduced the recipe to 6. Thanks for the fun!
