Edible Chocolate Puffy Paint Recipe

Homemade Paint Recipe - Chocolate Puffy Paint

Four ingredient no cook edible CHOCOLATE puffy paint recipe!  Valentine's art for kids

You know how much we love homemade puffy paint, right?  We are borderline obsessed.  It's so easy to make, and it lasts in the fridge for many months.  With Valentine's Day around the corner and chocolate on my mind, I suggested we make a batch of chocolate puffy paint.  Do I even need to mention how excited my boys were?  Chocolate and paint, what's not to love?  We've yet to make a homemade paint recipe we don't love.

Not only is this chocolate puffy paint recipe easy to make, it's safe for toddlers and young children.  Due to the high salt content, large amounts should not be consumed, but the paint is safe should your child decide to take a taste.  Don't worry, it doesn't taste very good, so a second taste isn't likely.  It smells amazing, though!

How to Make Edible Chocolate Puffy Paint

This post contains affiliate links. Here is my full disclosure policy.
Directions:  I mixed 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt, 3/4 water, and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder in a sandwich size ziploc baggie.  I sealed the bag and squished the mixture together in my hands, using care to squeeze all the lumps out without popping the bag open.  Next I cut a small corner of the bag and squeezed the contents into a funnel sitting over a squeezy bottle.  This amount mixed up two bottles of chocolate paint.

Easy to make edible chocolate puffy paint, only four ingredients!  Toddler safe and big kid approved.

I also pulled out the bottle of candy cane puffy paint we had leftover from December.  If stored properly in the refrigerator this paint recipe will last for months and months.  When you are ready to use again pull out the squeezy bottle and shake well then squeeze off any excess liquid.

  4. nice idea! can we substitute sugar for salt, so that it tastes good too and can be licked off after? :) (or is the salt an important ingredient?)
