I cannot walk into the kitchen in my house without my daughter following me in to ask if we can make slime! I am never successful with making 'real' slime so I decided to have a go at making some edible slime with her, and guess what... it actually worked!
She was so pleased that we have attempted these recipes a few times now after seeing them on ITV's This Morning. These recipes are not only great to play with (think play doh/slime) but they are edible too! So they are safe to make with younger children too who may be tempted to put it in their mouth.
Here are the recipes we tried and tested, let us know what you think and if you have tried them too!
Marshmallow Funfetti Slime
150g mini marshmallows @ Asda* £1
80-90g cornflour plus extra for dusting the surface
50g icing sugar
50g veg oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cake sprinkles (optional) @Amazon* £1.90 delivered
- Melt the marshmallows in a large heatproof bowl in the microwave for 30-50 secs, until melted, stirring after 30 seconds
- Stir in the oil and vanilla, mix well and then stir in the cornflour and mix again
- Add icing sugar and stir in and now knead until flexible. If it feels a little sticky, add in the rest of the cornflour.
- Use extra cornflour for the surface if you need to, having a little veg oil to hand is good to keep your hands sticky free. Knead and play. Add some cake sprinkles for a funfetti effect!
2 sachets sugar free jelly @ Asda* 37p
70g warm water
- Combine the powders in a bowl with a fork, stir in the water. It might seem a little solid but after a lot of kneading (with your hands) it becomes good stretchy consistency for playing with.
- There are a range of different fruity jelly flavours to choose from, so can be pink (raspberry) red (strawberry) or green (lime)
20g cocoa powder
95g coconut milk
- In a bowl, dry whisk the cocoa into the cornflour
- Gently warm the coconut milk, then pour over the powder, stir well. Get your hands in and knead it until it comes together and is like stretchy play dough.
- This one is perfect for making all sorts of shapes, especially a swirly poop emoji!
