Cook over low heat and stir constantly.
The dough will start to form quickly. When that happens, place the dough on a piece of parchment paper and begin to knead it for several minutes.
The dough will be warm so be careful and don't get burned. Also, don't let the kids touch it at this point because it's hot and may harm little fingers.
You want to knead it until the dough is smooth.
Place it in an airtight container when you and the kids aren't making cute little gingerbread men with it!
It will keep for several months.
