    Would the KoolAid dye the surface being worked on????? I remember KoolAid drinks spilt on surfaces and they would leave a stain on the counter.

    Yeah... I would think the cocoa and the kool-aid are not hard fast dyes? Wouldn't they miss color any surface they would be on?

    i haven't had any trouble with the dye coming off on things once it has been kneaded and cooled. kids play with it on a light oak kitchen table and no problems.. when it is warm after just mixing it will stain your hands until cool and set
