Making Gummy Bear Slime

Slime recipe cornstarch

Start by putting the gummy bears in a microwave safe bowl and microwaving for only about 25 seconds.

Once it’s out of the microwave it should be melted and sticky.

Add the powdered sugar, cornstarch and coconut oil. I started with only 2 TBS of each of the cornstarch and powdered sugar. I stirred that together and it was still sticky. So we added more. My daughter enjoyed this stirring and mixing part!

We added more of the powders until the slime no longer stuck to my fingers. I made sure that the powdered sugar and corn starch that were added were in equal amounts to each other.

Once the slime was the consistency we wanted (not sticking to everything and anything) we had a ball.

Edible slime recipe

The consistency is thicker than most other slime recipes that we have made. It was almost silky like homemade play dough can be, but it was definitely stretchier than play dough!

Cornstarch Slime

As we pulled it and played with it, all I kept thinking about was watching people make salt water taffy at the fair I attended annually as a child. I didn’t taste it, but it might even taste like salt water taffy. But you’ll have to make it and see.
