  1. Adelia,

    When you mix up a pitcher of Kool-Aid® to drink, you add sugar to water and the packet of Kool-Aid® flavoring. This recipe uses the packet only – none of the sugar. Cooking the dough as described will yield a pliable and springy dough, but not one that’s sticky. Be sure to cook the dough until it forms a ball in the pan. Have fun!

  2. This playdough smells like the kool id you use!! It’s sticky, but after you play with it some it stops sticking to your hands!
