Yes, Halloween has been over for a while, but I was so excited for my homemade non-food treat, that I had to share: Pumpkin Playdoh!
I found the recipe on Pinterest here, and I just knew that I had to give this out (as well as candy, of course). It was surprisingly easy to make!
Ingredients for 28 Pumpkin Playdoh Bags:
-4 Cups water
-Orange food coloring (or combine yellow and red)
-4 Tbsp vegetable oil
-2 Cup salt
-8 Tbsp. cream of tartar
-6 Tsp. pumpkin pie spice
-4 Cups of white flour
Combine the ingredients.
Cook on medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
It will get clumpy! Keep stirring while it cooks.
It looks much more like playdoh!
Put it in a bowl and let cool. At this point, the directions said to knead it for a few minutes, but it was much too warm.
After letting it cool, I put it into balls and put in the bags. I let them breathe so there was no condensation inside the bags.
Still a little condensation, but cool enough to continue on.
Tie and attach the label. We don’t want them eating this, thinking it is a treat!
Only a few left at the end of the night! Success!
