Edible Play Dough (peanut butter)

My recollection isn't really clear on this but I remember my mother making me a peanut butter based play-dough type material when I was very young. I would play with it, knead it, shape it, and then eat it. Probably not the most hygenic for a young both with dirty hands but I'm curious about it anyways.

Anyone ever heard of this or know what I'm talking about?

My mom has always used Kool Aid play-dough with her nursery school students, just in case there's a peanut allergy.

Kool-Aid® Play Dough
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup water
Mix flour, salt, cream of tartar and Kool-Aid® in a medium pot. Add water and oil. Stir over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes. When mixture forms a ball in pot, remove. Knead until smooth. Put in a plastic bag and refrigerate.

OMG! Do you have any idea how much "play-dough" that would make? That must be the Emeril LaGasse version of the recipe
