Here’s a Valentine’s Day recipe that’s fun for the whole family! It’s easy to make and even smells great. Get an empty chocolate box and your kids will love creating their own candies.

If you make this, be sure to let us know how it turned out!


1 1/2 cups flour
2 TAB vegetable oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup salt
2 cups water
2 TAB cream of tartar


1. Add all ingredients to a medium-large saucepan.

2. Over medium-high heat cool, stirring constantly, until it forms a soft ball in the middle of the pan. This takes about 5 minutes.

3. Using your spatula scope out the playdoh on wax paper and allow to cool a couple minutes; it will be hot at this point.

4. Knead the playdoh a couple times to get the smooth, glossy playdoh look and enjoy!
