How to make your own edible slime
It was the craze of the summer two years ago, with kids everywhere attempting to make their own slime. And with families now stuck at home in lockdown, the gooey creation is back once again!
Juliet Sear shows us how to make spectacular edible slime that everyone will want to taste!
MARSHMALLOW FUNFETTI SLIME
150g mini marshmallows (I used white but you can use a mixed pack if you wish your slime will just be a light pink instead of white)
80-90g cornflour plus extra for dusting the surface
50g icing sugar
50g veg oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cake sprinkles (optional)
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 (lime or strawberry is nice for a green or red colour)
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 the poop emoji!
