How to Make Peeps Play Dough

  • Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave, and begin mixing the ingredients with a spoon.
  • Once cool enough finish kneading and mixing the dough with your hands.

  • If the dough is at all sticky add a bit of corn starch and knead it in.  Continue to add more starch and knead until the desired consistency is reached.
  • Repeat the above steps using different colors of Peeps candy, and you can easily make an entire rainbow of play dough!

Tips & Resources:  
  • If you don't have Peeps candy in your country you can make the same type of play dough using marshmallows.  Check out our marshmallow play dough recipe for the full tutorial.
  • We purchased our Peeps candy in a variety of colors on Amazon here.
  • I recommend using neon food coloring if you are adding extra coloring to your Peeps play dough.  The colors are super vibrant and perfect for Spring!
  • We used coconut oil to make our play dough, but other cooking oils can also be used. 
  • Peeps play dough is meant for one-time use and should be discarded after play.
  • Is your play dough too sticky?
  • Add a little corn starch & knead it in!
  • Is your play dough too crumbly?  OOPS!  
  • That means that you accidentally added too much corn starch.  That is ok!
  • Add a bit of coconut oil to your hands and knead it into the dough!
  • If the dough becomes sticky during play knead in more corn starch.  I used quite a bit of corn starch throughout the mixing process to get the desired consistency.
This play dough recipe requires no cooking and is made using Kool-aid!  The play dough is easy to make, taste-safe, and you do not need cream of tartar! #playdoughrecipe #playdough #koolaidplaydoughrecipe #koolaidplaydough #playdoughrecipenocreamoftartar #playdoughrecipenocook #playdoughrecipeeasy #koolaidplaydoughrecipenocook #nocookplaydough
