Check out how to make this edible play dough. We really enjoyed adding the metallic sprinkles to this recipe for a cool effect! At the bottom of this post, you can see how we created pretend play dough cupcakes, cookies, and pancakes!
How to Make Edible Marshmallow Play Dough
- 2 cups of marshmallows
- 3 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
- microwave safe mixing bowl
Add marshmallows to a microwave safe mixing bowl. Microwave for 40 seconds.
Pour the coconut oil into the bowl of marshmallows.
Mix the coconut oil and marshmallows together.
Slowly add the powdered sugar. We used a small scoop and added the sugar one scoop at a time. Stir the mixture together until you get the consistency you’d like. We use at least one cup of powdered sugar to our recipe. Check the consistency after one cup and add the remaining powdered sugar if necessary.
Knead the dough together with your hands.
Add the sprinkles. For this recipe, we used cool metallic sprinkles for a neat look!
This recipe does use coconut oil, so it’s normal to get some of the oil on your hands.
Get creative with your dough. Check out our ideas below. We made dough cupcakes.
We also made Marshmallow Play Dough cookies.
Make a stack of Marshmallow Play Dough pancakes if you’d like!
We love the cool effect that the sprinkles give when mashed into the play dough.
We really enjoyed this recipe. The best part is that you can get creative with your recipe by adding a variety of different sprinkles or edible ingredients.
