Have you seen these Duncan Hines frosting flavors? You can add them to frosting to create your own flavor of icing. Well, I had picked up a couple different flavors (they are .99 at our local grocery store). While making play dough for class one morning, I remember them sitting unused in the pantry and I imagined the yummy scent they would add to it. Simply mix into your favorite play dough recipe. It was a huge hit. Use any flavor you wish, I didn't even add coloring to this batch.
Here is my absolute favorite recipe....
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 tsp cream of tartar
Duncan Hines Frosting Creations packet
2 tsp cooking oil
1 1/2 cups of boiling water
a few drops of glycerin
Mix all the dry ingredients, then add the boiling water and oil
Mix it all until it forms a ball, you may need to add flour or more water as needed.
When it is all mixed, add a few drops of glycerin (you can find it in the medicine aisle at the grocery store, makes a huge difference in your play dough! I highly recommend using it)
This play dough will last a long time. Keep it in an airtight container, I use a zip lock bag!
