Play-Doh You Can Actually Eat

Today is National Play-Doh Day, and if you were like most kids, you probably tried eating it at least once. If you did — don't lie, I know I'm not the only one — then you'll probably recall that it was really salty and had a strangely sweet odor. I'm sure that its overt saltiness is so you won't nosh down on more than a bite. However, if you've always fantasized about eating tubs of the stuff, do yourself a favor and make an edible batch. You can even do so while wearing the official cologne from Demeter. Celebrate national Play-Doh day, get the recipe for an edible version, just

I have actually made this kind of play dough before, but I never thought about adding kool-aid. Is there anything you can't do with kool-aid? P.S. I LOVE the smell of Play-Doh!
