Intro: Edible Slime (Made With Starbursts!)
My sister's birthday was a few weeks ago now and she is really into slime- but she also really love candy (who doesn't?). I was first going to make her the normal glue/borax slime, but that really isn't very excited! And then I came up with this! Enjoy!
Step 1: What You Need
For ingredient you need:
- Starbursts (any color is fine)
- Corn Starch
- Confectioners Sugar
Then, for utensils, you need:
- A large pot
- A bowl to melt the starbursts in (or a double boiler)
- A clean surface
Step 2: Starbursts
Take your pot and fill about half way with water. Put on your stove on high and bring to a boil.
Take 30 starbursts candy and unwrap them and set in the bowl or double boiler.
Step 3: Melting
Take bowl filled with starburst and set in the pot of boiling water. If there is room without dunking the bowl, feel free to use put on the lid. It will help it to melt faster.
Leave the starbursts for fifteen minutes, and then remove bowl from water and stir gently. If there are any more chunks, set back in the water for a few more minutes.
Step 4: Knead
While Starbursts are melting, take 1 Tbs Cornstarch and 1 Tbs Confectioners Sugar and spread out on your clean surface. When Starbursts are finished melting, pour from the bowl onto the floured surface. You're going to want to cover your hands with the powder and also sprinkle some on top of your starbursts, as it will be very sticky! Knead the starbursts like dough for about a minute or until it is no longer sticky.
Step 5: Playing
Work's done, so now time for play! Yay! Enjoy stretching it about however you like- it is very stretchy!
Step 6: Storing
In about thirty minutes, the starbursts will begin to harden again. To make it stretchy again, put in the bowl over boiling water again for a few minutes and then knead in a little bit more cornstarch. If you are done playing with it and want to store it, then put in a plastic bag. I don't know how long it will last because when I made it, it was eaten pretty soon after!
Out of the two different edible slimes I made, I think I like this one best.
