If you have kids in the house you’re probably on one side or the other when it comes to slime. I find myself more on the eternal child side of this one. In our house, slime is pretty awesome. I have just as much fun with it as my kids do… in fact, maybe a little more fun than they do some days. What’s better than a fun slime recipe though? Why, a super tasty and awesome edible slime recipe of course!
This edible slime comes together so quickly. It’s actually much easier than the traditional slime recipe that we use. There are essentially only three ingredients needed to make a “base model” of this slime. If you want, you can get fancy and add in fun things like candies, chocolate chips, and much more. Just make sure that whatever you put in is edible and matches well with the pudding mix that you are using.
Edible Pudding Slime Recipe
You want to use an instant pudding mix for this recipe. You can use any flavor that you would like though. We went with chocolate because we are a house of chocoholics. If you prefer banana or vanilla then, by all means, use that!
Since we decided to go with chocolate pudding we also used organic chocolate chips in our slime to add a little extra texture. You can leave this out or use candies or other sweets that go well with your chosen flavor. The slime is just fine without the chocolate chips. We just wanted to add another layer of texture by adding the hard chocolate bits into it.
1/4 C instant pudding mix
1 C cornstarch
2/3 C warm water
1/4 C chocolate chips
Combine your dry ingredients in a large bowl until completely combined.
Slowly begin to add your water in a little bit at a time. You may not need to use all of your water. Work to knead the water into the mixture with your hands as you slowly add it. It can be helpful to be an octopus or to have a helper here because three hands or so are needed to do this right. You can use a wooden spoon or another stirring utensil if you want.
You want to reach a very thick texture to where you almost can’t stir it anymore. Once you reach this texture coat your hands in a little extra cornstarch and begin to knead the slime just as you would with the non-edible kind. You won’t quite get the stretch that you do on non-edible slime but you should still have a squishy fun texture that you can play with just as you would with other slimes. It comes out pretty close to a play doh texture if you do it properly.
Storing Edible Slime
Although it is not made with milk like traditional pudding it is still important to store your edible slime in the refrigerator so that bacteria doesn’t grow in it.
You want to store this slime in a tightly sealed container when putting it into the refrigerator.
This slime recipe should store well in the fridge for about 2-3 days. It could probably make it up to a week but it never quite lasts that long around here. Hey, slime goes fast when you can eat it AND it tastes like chocolate!
