Nutty Putty

I haven't been trying as many new recipes this week, so I haven't had as much to blog about, but today I was looking for something to keep Isaac busy. I first came across a few years ago and made it up, but Isaac was too little and didn't enjoy playing with it. Today, though, he had a great time! It's a lot like play dough, just a little bit thicker. The best part? You can snack on the dough while you're playing! The oil from the peanuts gets a little bit greasy though, make sure to wash up really well after play time!Here's the original recipe:

Nutty Putty
3 1/2 cups peanut butter
3 1/2 cups corn syrup
4 cups powdered milk
4 cups powdered sugar

This would make a HUGE batch! The first time I made it, I did half of that, and it still made a huge batch, so today I did a quarter batch and it was just about right. Here's the breakdown:

.8 cups peanut butter (I think it was 210 mL if your measure cup has metric measurements, otherwise just measure half way between 3/4 and 1 cup)
.8 cups corn syrup
1 cup powdered milk
1 cup powdered sugar

Mix with a wooden spoon, then knead to blend well. Store left over putty in fridge covered with plastic wrap.
