Inside: Super stretchy edible candy slime that only requires three simple ingredients.
As I was cleaning out our cabinets this week I discovered a bucket full of last year’s Halloween candy. I was just about to pitch it to make way for our next trick-or-treating haul (Halloween is only a few weeks away) when I got inspired to make…
Edible Candy Slime!
The result of our experiments was a super-duper stretchy edible candy slime that’s a lot like silly putty!

Unwrap candy and place in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 20 seconds, 10 seconds at a time, stirring between. Make sure a grown-up does this step.
Remove from bowl of melted candy from microwave and add powdered sugar and cornstarch to bowl. Stir with a spoon until mixture thickens. Melted candy will be hot, so avoid touching at this point!
When mixture is too thick to stir with a spoon, finish mixing by hand, kneading in your cornstarch/sugar powder until slime no longer sticks to hands. Careful, make sure slime has cooled enough to handle first!
- If slime hardens, simply microwave for a few seconds to soften.
- Play on a non-stick surface, like these silicone baking mats
Safety note: Supervise kids at ALL times when making and playing with this candy slime recipe. This is a thick slime and could pose a choking risk to small children. Adults should handle the microwave steps, as candy will be hot.
