Candy Corn Slime

This fun and easy-to-make Halloween slime can be made with just 5 ingredients: cornstarch, vanilla, marshmallows, and — you guessed it — candy corn.

While I wouldn’t suggest letting the little ones chow down on it, this candy corn slime is in fact edible. For me, I just like being able to rest assured that if one of the kids does sneak a taste, it won’t cause them any harm — other than a possible sugar high.

But be careful that the slime has cooled down enough before letting the kids get their hands in it – it will be hot coming out of the microwave!

Candy Corn Slime

Author: Jaclyn
Prep: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes
This taste-safe candy corn slime makes a great activity for Fall and Halloween sensory play.

Equipment

  • medium size microwave bowl or container
  • fork or spoon (to stir)

Supplies
 

  • 12 oz mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 - 1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar

Instructions

  • In a microwave safe bowl, microwave mini marshmallows until melted. 
  • Then, add candy corn and microwave in short intervals until melted, stirring in between each interval.
  • Add canola oil and vanilla. Stir until well combined.  
  • Slowly add powdered sugar, ¼ cup at a time. Once you have added 3/4 cups, remove slime from bowl and use hands to mix it together. Be careful, it may still be hot! Continue to add powdered sugar ¼ cup at a time until the consistency is where you would like it. A little more canola oil can be added in if you need to improve elasticity.

Notes

The slime will be the most "slimy" while it is warm. If the slime begins to harden, microwave it for 30 seconds and it should soften up. Just be careful that it isn't too hot before giving it back to the kids!

  1. I will be having a few of my grandchildren over in another week, I will be making this with them, I know they would
    love it and super easy.

  2. When it hardens, does it become fudgy in consistency, or harder? Thanks for the info! Look forward to making this!

    1. Great question — It becomes harder, making it tough to play with. To get is softer and more “slimy” you can heat it in the microwave for a few seconds to get it to soften.

  3. My Granddaughter absolutely loves making slime, this is going to be a huge hit with her. I can’t wait!!!
