I’ve recently re-discovered the magic of Roald Dahl thanks to my 5 year old and his voracious appetite for reading. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was always one of my favourites.
Nobody has seen Willy Wonka – or inside his amazing chocolate factory – for years. When he announces plans to invite the winners of five Golden Tickets hidden inside the wrappers of chocolate bars to visit his factory, the whole world is after those tickets!
Everyone is familiar with Charlie Bucket, the Golden Tickets, the Oompa-Loompas and Mr Willy Wonka and what could be better than making our own Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-inspired chocolate play dough.
Ingredients to make chocolate play dough:
150g plain flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
50g cocoa powder
How to make chocolate play dough:
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, add the vegetable oil and slowly stir in the water until you have the desired consistency.
We even got our letter stamps out so they could stamp little messages in the play dough. The play dough smelled really good and I kept having to remind Little Sis not to eat it as she was very tempted.
