Edible Playdough Recipe : No Cook Marshmallow Playdough

Two of our reader- favorite play recipes are edible play recipes. Our edible water beads (rather taste-safe)  and our edible slime recipe. While we loved our chilled play dough recipe, I think this no-cook marshmallow play dough has become our well-loved cornstarch based play dough recipe. Before I continue let me tell you that the first time I saw marshmallow being used to create play dough was on My Buddies and I. Check out the original marshmallow dough recipe that started it all!  Since I love a good no-cook recipe, I wanted to try to recreate this recipe without a stove! It was quite simple with a jar of marshmallow creme.

Grab your Marshmallow Creme jar. Add 1/4 cup of creme in a bowl. I also take the extra step of slightly microwaving it ( 10 seconds) to completely make it fluffy. After adding the creme add a few drops of gel food coloring. To the now colored marshmallow creme add 1/3 cup of cornstarch

If your dough is still sticky I would add more cornstarch. But make sure you don’t overdo this part since the dough will more crumbly and hard and not soft and squishy. Line up your edible playdough and set out the usual playdough tools.

The marshmallow playdough takes markings and printing very well.

You can roll, squish and pinch it too! It is soft and almost stretchy.

 My kids loved kneading and cutting.edible playdough

They did some printing too. I can see how this dough just like playdough can be used to practice scissor skills. Best part, if the kids decide to do a taste test, you don’t have to panic since you know that the ingredients are all edible and taste-safe!

 We even tried a marbled version to make this gorgeous candy cane with our playdough recipe. Just go easy on the kneading and mixing after adding your red color you will get a marbled look.
