How to Make Edible Slime
- 14 oz. bag Starburst Candy (2 bags may be needed depending on colors needed)
- ¾ cup Powdered Sugar
- ¾ cup Cornstarch
Separate the candy into piles by color. I used original colored Starbursts, so I had red, orange, yellow, and pink.
Unwrap 23-25 pieces of each color and put them into 4 individual bowls. Make sure the bowls can go in the microwave.
Mix the cornstarch and powdered sugar together in a bowl.
Starting with one of the colored starburst candy, microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Put back in for 30 more seconds and stir again. If it is not completely melted put it back in for a few extra seconds.
Stir in about 2-3 tablespoons of the cornstarch mixture until it is mostly mixed in. Put a little bit of the cornstarch mixture on the counter and dump the candy mixture on top of it. (At this point, you will have to leave it set on the counter for a few minutes to cool down before you can knead it).
Roll it and knead it a little and stretch it as the cornstarch mixture works into it. Only add just enough so the candy does not stick to your hands anymore. You want it to be soft a pliable so do not add too much cornstarch/sugar mixture.
Repeat the above steps with the other colors if you’d like a variety of flavors and scents.
