Chocolate Playdough

I made this version for the kids.  It's Christmas cookie time, so you know that the kids are all about helping.  I found this recipe in gingerbread form, and I adapted it into chocolate playdough!    So the kids get to roll it, play with cookie cutters, and do their own thing endlessly.  Put in a cute jar with a cookie cutter a bow, and it's fantastic for cookie swaps or your host to the holiday parties.

Adapted from Sweet Sugarbelle

3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 cup water

In a medium saucepan whisk together dry ingredients. Next mix in the water and oil and stir until a thick batter is formed. Cook the mixture over low heat until a thick dough forms. Turn out onto parchment paper or wax paper and knead until smooth. Makes about 2 cups of dough.
