Okay, so sometimes taking the easy way doesn't pay. The one recipe didn't work at all! If it sounds too simple it is. This one worked much better:
Mine didn't look as nice as the pictures, but hey it is the fun factor that counts and not the appearance, right? The above recipe made the right amount for 6 kids (my oldest wasn't interested in playing) and provided some quiet entertainment and I still got away without cooking it! I would suggest putting it on wax paper as it does contain olive oil. Maybe it will help those of us with dry skin?
