This is a great recipe if you have kids who need something to do AND eat! :)
Here is what you need:
8oz cream cheese
3/4 cup non fat powdered milk.
1.5 TBSP of honey
Sounds totally bizarre right?
Well, you mix and mix and mix until you get "frosting" consistency.
Then you slap some on waxed paper and let them go to town. I gave them forks and knives so they could scribble with it, chop it, smear it, and just "play" with it.
This was great for the 1 year old.
She wanted to "play" too!
It works, because it is also edible!
When they were done I gave them some pretzels, excellent timing, as it was snack time. :)
This stuff does not keep, so it is for one time play only.
I bet you have all this stuff on hand.
I always have powdered milk - but that is because I use it for baking wheat bread.
Have fun and try it!
