Did you know Marshmallow Peeps make the best edible play dough ever? Last week while researching Marshmallow Peeps, I found a recipe for “Marshmallow Peeps Edible Play Dough”on line. As a lover of peeps, I decided to try the recipe out and quickly realized after batch #1 that the recipe I was using needed a few adjustments, to improve the texture and taste of the Peeps Play Dough. After making a few changes, I found myself playing like a child rolling out fruity flavored Peeps Play dough at my kitchen island, wishing I had some kids along side of me, to play with! Call and invite the grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and neighborhood children over this weekend, to whip up a few batches and have some fun together in the kitchen!

Marshmallow Peeps Fruity Flavored Edible Play Dough
6-8 fresh marshmallow peeps
2/3 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon extract flavoring (I used Grape -w/ Purple Peeps, Raspberry – w/ Blue Peeps, and Strawberry – w/ Pink Peeps)…any flavor can be substituted, and if you’re lucky enough to find a package of flavored Peeps you can omit extract from the recipe!
1 place peeps in microwave safe bowl; microwave at full power 30 seconds; remove from microwave
2 place oil and cornstarch in bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook attachment; add melted peeps; mix on medium speed 30 seconds until cornstarch becomes incorporated
3 turn loose dough onto clean work surface and knead until dough ball forms; using hand form into Easter Egg shape
3 wrap in clear plastic wrap or airtight plastic bag/container; will keep 2-3 days
* Note~ I found this adorable 7 piece Kid’s Baking Set for $1.97 at Walmart to gift with the Marshmallow Peeps Fruity Flavored Edible Play Dough
* To rejuvenate dough’s elasticity ~ I recommend Adults Only, heat Peeps play dough in microwave safe bowl 15 seconds; remove stir; when cool enough to touch, knead 30 seconds before children roll out dough and cut fun shapes !
