  • 1 bag Starburst
  • 1/4 cup Corn Starch
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar


  • Begin by unwrapping all of the Starburst candies then separate them by color. Next, prepare a space for mixing the edible slime by placing a sheet of parchment paper onto a flat surface; countertop, cookie sheet, cutting board or table. Then measure 1/4 cup of both corn starch and powdered sugar before pouring them both onto the parchment paper. Use your fingers or a spoon to mix the two powders together until they are well blended.
  • Pour one color of Starburst into a microwave safe bowl (or paper bowl) then heat it in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from the microwave then stir it with a spatula (or plastic knife/spoon). If all of the candies do not melt and blend when you are stirring the gooey Starburst return the bowl to the microwave for an additional 15 seconds then stir it again. After the goo is smooth allow it to rest in the bowl for 4-5 minutes or until the melted candy is cool to touch.
  • Once the candy has cooled enough to touch it with your fingers pour it onto the prepared powder ingredients. Use your hands to press the powders into the Starburst and continue to add corn starch and powdered sugar to the melted candy until the desired consistency for your Starburst slime is achieved and it is no longer sticky.
  • Repeat steps one thru three for the remaining Starburst flavors. There will be plenty of corn starch and powdered sugar for all of the colors of candy then squish, mold and  even eat the edible slime.
  • If your edible slime remained on a clean surface during play and you would like to preserve it for another time simply place each color in a plastic bag or sealed container. When you are ready for more slime fun heat each flavor in a microwaveable safe bowl for 15-20 seconds then allow it to cool until it is ok for little hands to touch it. If it is too sticky add a dash of corn starch or powdered sugar and if it is too dry add a tiny bit of coconut oil.
