Candy corn is a Halloween staple. Now I must admit, I have never been much of a fan of candy corn. I have nothing against the stuff, but I just have always preferred chocolate to candy corn. That being said, my kids are huge fans of candy corn, so they were thrilled to make this Candy Corn Slime. You just need a few ingredients to make this fun slime, and the best part of all, is it is completely edible. So lets learn How to Make Edible Candy Corn Slime that kids will love!

Please supervise your kids when making slime and have them wash their hands when they are done playing. Since this slime recipe used warm to hot ingredients, it should be made by an adult.
I always recommend playing with slime on a table and away from fabric and carpets. You'll thank me later!
How to Make Edible Candy Corn Slime
You will need:
12 oz mini marshmallows
1 cup candy corn
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 - 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
To make this edible candy corn slime, microwave 12 oz mini marshmallows in a microwave safe cup until melted. Transfer the melted marshmallows to a bowl. The mixture will be sticky!
Next, microwave 1 cup of candy corn until it has melted. You will melt the candy corn in intervals, stirring in between each. You can use the same cup you used for the marshmallows.
Add in 1 tablespoon canola oil and 1 teaspoon vanilla to the melted candy corn mixture. Stir thoroughly.
Add the melted candy corn to the the melted marshmallows and stir to combine. Add in ¼ cup at a time of powdered sugar, mixing between each ¼ cup.
After about ¾ of a cup, you can take the mixture out of the bowl and use your hands to mix in the remaining powdered sugar. Be careful, as it can still be hot.
Continue to add powdered sugar until the consistency is as you would like it. If you need to improve the elasticity, you can add a little more canola oil.
This is the most ‘slimy’ when it is warm. If it begins to harden while you are making it, or you simply want to play with a softer slime, pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds and it will ready to go!
This slime can be stored in an airtight container if your kids don't want to play with it right away. After noticing my kids leaving slime everywhere and finding lots of messes, I purchased these containers and they have been a life saver.
While this slime is edible, I would still supervise kids with it. I mean, it is mostly made from sugar, and you don't want your child to eat the whole thing in one sitting.
Now that you know how to make edible candy corn slime, you finally have something to do with all that candy you'll get on Halloween.
