Chocolate Playdough and Bakery Pretend Play

L wanted to play with play dough and I immediately thought...chocolate playdough (hey, I was hungry!) and so when I went to looking for recipes and one of my favorite blogs The Imagination Tree, had a recipe for chocolate playdough, I was thrilled! It's a very simple recipe (no cook), and I cannot stress enough HOW AMAZING THIS STUFF SMELLS! It totally smells like fresh baked cookies! We played BAKERY with our chocolate playdough for HOURS and part of that was because I just didn't want to put it smells that delicious!  
no I didn't do some cute and elaborate bakery setup, but sometimes there's no time or just no reason to. Our bakery and L's imagination thrived in spite of the mess :)

 This was B's first playdough experience and he loved it! Tried to eat it twice but decided he didn't like it and then proceeded to squish and pull it to pieces for better than an hour!
