Hot chocolate is just one of those things that makes everyone feel happy, relaxed and ready to hang out. This hot chocolate playdough is just the thing to pull out on a cold winter day.
This fun chocolate playdough recipe comes from some of my personal favorite bloggers and kid activity writer. The team generously sent me their latest book so I could check it out for myself, and all opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.
These inspiring ladies recently came out with a book featuring slimes, doughs and other moldable creation — 101 Kids Activities that are the Ooey, Gooey-est Ever!: Nonstop Fun with DIY Slimes, Doughs and Moldables. How’s that for a title?!?
Be sure to check out our other fun family-friendly kid activities and crafts!
Jam-packed with awesome recipes for kids ranging from preschool to older kids addicted to slime (I’m betting you know some!), this latest book is a must-have for any kid or teacher of younger children.
And I should note — the book is written directly to kids. So children can read it themselves and are told when they’ll need additional adult help or supervision.
I’m really pleased to share one of the recipes from the book with you today!
Hot Chocolate Playdough
For extra fun, pair this chocolate playdough recipe with their Marshmallow Playdough, which you can find in their recipe book, and stick it in a mug to make it look like real hot chocolate!

What You Do
