Instructions:

  1. Divide the Starburst candies by color and unwrap. For each color, you will need 20 Starburst candies. Feel free to mix and match colors. Place each color into a small glass bowl.
  2. Microwave the candies in a microwave safe bowl on low heat for 2-30 second increments, stirring in between. You can also use a double boiler to melt candies. You could also boil a pot of water and place the glass bowl into the pot to melt the Starburst candies. (Making it like a double boiler). Stir regularly to prevent burning. Once melted, remove from heat.
  3. Fold the melted candies out onto a cutting board with 3 Tablespoons of icing sugar. Allow the Starburst to cool until you can comfortably touch it.
  4. Knead the icing sugar into the melted Starburst until it’s not sticky, adding more as needed.
  5. Enjoy stretching, squishing, twisting, and squeezing your Edible Slime. Combine multiple colors together for amazing colors. Feel free to take a nibble!


Recipe Tips:

If you add too much icing sugar, 1-2 tsp of coconut oil will help loosen up the slime.

Edible slime is only soft and stretchy while warm, so it has a short play time. When you are ready to reuse, microwave the edible slime on low heat in the microwave for 2-30 second increments, stirring in between.

If you plan to allow your children to nibble on this edible slime, make their hands and surfaces are clean when playing. Although this slime is 100% food ingredients and edible, it is not recommended to eat in large quantities. Remember the size of Starburst candy and base what you allow your child to eat based on that quantity. Keep in mind that there is an additional amount of powdered sugar to the content of the slime.
