How To Make Ice Cream Playdough
Attach the dough hook to your mixer. Mix until the soon to be ice cream dough is well combined. As you mix you will notice the consistency of the mix will resemble just like when you mix ice cream.
If your mix still feels sticky to the touch, slowly add powdered sugar 2 tablespoons at a time until it can be picked up without sticking to your hands. If your mix is too dry and crumbly add a small amount of olive oil and your problem is solved!
Goal: To be able to pick up the dough without the dough sticking to your hands >>
Assembly Tip: If your ice cream dough mixture is either too dry or too crumbly simply add a dash of olive oil to firm up the dough and let the happy ice cream cone assembly begin!
Bring out your sprinkles, jimmies and cake decorating doo dads to decorate the ice cream cones or bowls. The ice cream playdough is edible so no worries about licking the fingers during making the playdough. The playdough is edible but sugar alert as well; we use this as a fun DIY and make an ice cream bar to make an event out of the DIY.
