A childhood lunch classic, transformed into hours of squishy sensory play — kids will love this NEW Peanut Butter & Jelly Edible Slime recipe!
Peanut Butter & Jelly Edible Slime
If you can’t tell by all the slime recipes on the blog, we are huge slime fans in our house!!
When we first started making homemade slime, my youngest daughter was two years old, so I wanted to make sure that we made toddler safe slime recipes. That way she could join in the slime fun, and I wouldn’t have to worry about her getting any toxic chemicals in her mouth.
Our first effort at edible slime – this Edible Jello Slime – turned out to be our most popular recipe ever! (Shared hundreds of thousands of times…wow!)
This peanut butter slime came about on a whim. I love peanut butter and have been kicking around the idea of an edible peanut butter slime for a while — so today we decided to go for it! My husband insisted that adding grape jelly slime would be twice as fun. And he was right!
Play with them together, separately, swirl them, make PB & J “sandwiches” and let your imagination go to town!
I’ve listed both recipes below — each recipe is enough for one “serving” of each slime. If you’re making for more than one child, simply double the amounts or adjust as needed.
How to Make Edible Peanut Butter Slime
For your convenience, I’ve included shop-able ad links to ingredients used to make these edible slime recipes; read our disclosure policy here.
Start by whisking together peanut butter and corn syrup until smooth. Gradually add about a teaspoon of cornstarch, stirring as your go, until slime starts to form.
If your peanut butter slime sticks to hands, add a touch more cornstarch.
*If you have allergy concerns, feel free to substitute another type of nut butter or even sunflower seed butter. You may need to add more cornstarch if your substitute is runnier in consistency than a typical peanut butter.
Important safety note: these slime recipes are taste-safe, but they are not a food item and not meant to be eaten in large amounts. Always supervise young children when playing with any edible slime.
How to Make Edible Grape Jelly Slime
- 1 Tablespoon grape jelly
- 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
Combine grape jelly and cornstarch in a mixing bowl, adding cornstarch one tablespoon at a time until jelly no longer sticks to the bowl.
Finish mixing by hand, adding more cornstarch if jelly sticks to skin.
TIP: Feel free to substitute our edible silly putty (using purple Jello) for the Jelly slime. I find that the jelly slime dries out a little bit quicker than our silly putty slime, but they both look very similar.

Why I love this edible slime recipe:
- Easy to make (only 3 ingredients)
- Safe and non-toxic (no glue, borax, liquid starch, etc)
- Quick clean-up (washes right off with water)
Slime Making Tips
- We used a silicone baking mat as our play surface for easier clean-up. (Slime washes right off with water!)
- You can’t really “mess up” making either of these recipes. If either slime is too runny, simply add a little more cornstarch. If your peanut butter slime is too thick, add a bit more corn syrup. If your jelly slime starts to dry out, simply rehydrate with a touch of water.
