This recipe is so cute. Something to take up the time between Halloween and Thanksgiving, maybe?
Peanut Butter Sculpture Dough
It takes one cup of smooth Valencia peanut butter, one-half cup of honey, and up to two cups of nonfat dry milk.
1. Mix the peanut butter and honey. It will be sticky, but the dry milk in the next step will help.
2. Gradually add half of the dry milk (one cup). Continue to add the rest of the dry milk until you get a soft, pliable dough that's easy to shape.
3. Your kids will come up with their own ideas, but you can get them started by shaping animals, stars, and faces. You can make it a special occasion by letting them decorate with M&Ms, chocolate chips, and coconut they can color with food dye (for hair).
4. Of course, if they decorate this sweet dough with candy, they'll be even more tempted to eat their art. There's no need to worry if your kids eat this dough ? though it is awfully sweet because of the honey. If you want to tone down the sweetness a little, use plain peanut butter, made without sugar.
Also -- if you have hermit crabs, they will probably love it, since it's mostly peanut butter and honey.. But I'll leave it to Highland Lassie to judge. I think if you mixed in sunflower seeds and maybe cinnamon, it would make nice little finger treats for the football games or TV specials. And if you got sick of it, the squirrels and nuthatches outside would take the leftovers off your hands.
