IC 31: Sculptural - Peanut Butter Playdough

Iron Craft has moved to Just Crafty Enough and this week's challenge is Sculptural.  We were to make something with clay.  If you recall, I used polymer clay back for the Hometown challenge. And while I'm not opposed to making beads or some other kind of jewelry, I was trying to think of something different to make.  That's when I remembered this playdough that I made a few years ago.  So I decided to make some of it and to make a teddy bear out of it.

IC31: Peanut Butter Playdough Teddy

Here's the recipe:

1 package (1/3 of a box) of graham crackers, finely crushed
1 cup smooth peanut butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar (or to taste)

Soften the peanut butter in the microwave
Add graham cracker crumbs and sugar, mix well
Refrigerate before using.

You might need to add more graham cracker crumbs or powdered sugar to keep the dough from getting too sticky.

I embellished my bear with M&Ms,  Chocolate Chips and a sprinkle (for the nose).

Ooh! We have made this before with various proportions of PB and powdered sugar, sometimes with honey or powdered milk too... but never with graham crackers! Very interesting... going to have to try it!

The texture of the powered milk threw me off when I tried that but now that I have a food processor, I might give it a try again. In elementary school, they used to give us these peanut butter slabs with chocolate chips on them and I LOVED them. I've been looking for a recipe that's similar to them.

Honey would probably work in here too but you might need to increase the amount of graham crackers to make it less sticky.

So I take it you eat this playdough when you are finished playing with it?

yep (or during!), just make sure everything is clean.
