Chocolate Play Dough Ingredients

A note about “edible” slime:
I just want to mention that even though I call this “Edible Chocolate Slime” I’m not advocating serving it as a snack for kids. It’s simply meant to be a taste-safe alternative to glue-based slime for younger kids. So if they DO taste the slime it won’t hurt them. And it’s fun!
How to Make Edible Chocolate Slime
Add heaping 1/2 cup of cornstarch and 1 tablespoon cocoa powder to a medium mixing bowl. Whisk together until well combined and you have a light brown powder.
Heat 1/3 cup coconut milk in microwave until warm (not steaming or boiling). This should take about 20 seconds. Make sure to use a microwave-safe bowl and handle with care.
Pour warm coconut milk into mixing bowl with cornstarch and cocoa powder. Milk together with a spoon until a smooth slime begins to form. You’ll be able to easily scoop the putty out of the bowl by hand when you’re done mixing.
A few slime-making notes:
- Always supervise kids when playing with slime or play dough, especially toddlers.
- If dough seems to dry out, heat in microwave for about 10 seconds. This softens the coconut cream in the recipe and brings back the slime texture.
- While this recipe is made with taste-safe ingredients, you probably don’t want to eat a whole batch!
Easy Slime Clean-up Tips
Not only is this edible chocolate slime recipe easy to make, it’s also easy to clean. Simply wash hands with soap and water to remove any dried dough.
Inevitably, kids will get some of the slime on the floor. I sweep up any big chunks and discard in the garbage bin, then follow with a quick mop.
I know what you’re thinking — who wants to get the mop out??
This slime recipe easily dissolves in soap and water, so I find that mopping is the best way to quickly clean up any slime that melts onto the kitchen tile.
And honestly, I love any excuse to get out my O-Cedar EasyWringTM Spin Mop & Bucket System. It’s an effortless deep cleaning experience…and I never have to touch the dirty mop or get my hands wet!
The bucket features a built-in hands-free wringer to get the water out of your mop in seconds — and all you have to do is step on a foot pedal a couple times.
And you never know, your kids might want to do the mopping themselves. My girls both come running when they see me get out the mop and bucket!
The O-Cedar EasyWringTM Spin Mop & Bucket System is available for $39.99 at retailers nationwide — CLICK HERE for more info and where to buy!
