Marshmallow Peeps Fruity Flavored Edible Play Dough!




Did you know Marshmallow Peeps make the best edible play dough ever?  Last week while researching Marshmallow Peeps, I  found a recipe for “Marshmallow Peeps Edible Play Dough”on line.  As a lover of peeps, I decided to try the recipe out and quickly realized after batch #1 that the recipe I was using needed a few adjustments, to improve the texture and taste of the Peeps Play Dough.   After making a few changes, I found myself playing like a child  rolling out fruity flavored Peeps Play dough at my kitchen island, wishing I had some kids along side of me, to play with!  Call and invite the grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and neighborhood children over this weekend, to  whip up a few batches and have some fun together in the kitchen!

Marshmallow Peeps Fruity Flavored Edible Play Dough


6-8 fresh marshmallow peeps

2/3 cup cornstarch

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/4 teaspoon extract flavoring (I used Grape -w/ Purple Peeps, Raspberry – w/ Blue Peeps,  and Strawberry – w/ Pink Peeps)…any flavor can be substituted, and if you’re lucky enough to find a package of flavored Peeps you can omit extract from the recipe!


1  place  peeps in microwave safe bowl; microwave at full power 30 seconds; remove from microwave

2  place oil and  cornstarch in bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook attachment; add melted peeps; mix on medium speed 30 seconds until cornstarch becomes incorporated

3   turn loose dough onto clean work surface and knead until dough ball forms; using hand form into Easter Egg shape

3 wrap in clear plastic wrap or airtight plastic bag/container; will keep 2-3 days

* Note~ I found this adorable 7 piece Kid’s Baking Set for $1.97 at Walmart to gift with the Marshmallow Peeps Fruity Flavored Edible Play Dough




* To rejuvenate dough’s elasticity ~ I recommend Adults Only, heat Peeps play dough in microwave safe bowl 15 seconds; remove stir; when cool enough to touch, knead 30 seconds before children roll out dough and cut fun shapes ! 

The “American Blogger” Documentary May Be The Biggest Crock Of Shitake Mushrooms Ever

I first saw this video on Barstool Sports but I’m thinking the whole thing has to be a joke, right?

Like a documentary is supposed to capture people in real life, if you watch that trailer you would think that the only people that blog are wealthy privileged female designers whose houses are spotless. Was there even one guy in the whole lot?

I feel like the whole trailer was something made up for The Onion or some satirical Saturday Night Live Skit where in the very next scene all these women hop on unicorns after farting out rainbows.

Somehow us lumping trailer loads of stinky herring at 5AM didn’t make the cut 😉
