Edible Valentine’s Slime is here for all the kids who love to get messy and sticky. Made with sugar and condensed milk, kids can eat this slime, too!
Slime is a great way to keep kids busy for hours. Maybe it’s time to encourage your kids’ love for ooey gooey playtime… at least this Valentine’s Day.
This Valentine’s Day craft is kind of genius, really. Kids can play with the slime and then they can eat it when they’re done! Parenting just got a whole lot easier. For today, anyway .
What You Will Need to Make Edible Valentine’s Slime:
- 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
- 14 ounce Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 2 Tablespoons extra fine granulated sugar
- Red Food Coloring
- Conversation heart candies or Valentine sprinkles (optional)
This recipe is adapted from Imperial Sugar.
Make Non Toxic Slime:
How to Make Edible Valentine’s Slime:
- Place the condensed milk, sugar, and cornstarch into the sauce pan. Mix until well-blended.
- Place the pan over med-high heat, stirring until mixture thickens. Note: you want to be careful not to burn the mixture. If your stove tends to heat up quickly, heat on low-medium heat.
- Mix in approximately 5-6 drops of food coloring (you can add more to make the color darker). We chose red just in time for Valentine’s Day!
- Let mixture cool down completely before giving it to your child. You can even place it into the refrigerator until cooled.
- Once cooled, add the conversation heart candies (or sprinkles), and stir well.
- Allow your kids to have some ooey, gooey fun! You can store leftovers in a resealable plastic bag or container in the refrigerator. Make sure to use within 5 days, as the slime will begin to harden in the refrigerator.
Note: It is best to play with Edible Slime away from carpet and upholstered furniture. The food coloring may cause stains.
And that’s it! You will then have some fun (and delicious) slime to play with!
Sugar is so versatile!
Sugar is an item I always keep in my home. Not only do I love to bake, but I also love to craft. Whether it’s crafting, something with my boys on a cold winter day, or creating a fun DIY gift for friends and family, sugar is always my friend.
