{Valentine} Slime Your Kids Can EAT!

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 .

Homemade Edible Valentine’s Gifts

This edible slime is such a cool thing, because not only is it a fun craft for your child to make, but it could make a super cool homemade edible Valentine’s gift too.

Why would this make one of the best edible Valentine’s gifts?

Well, because a lot kids have different allergies. Obviously this wouldn’t be suited for someone with a dairy allergy, but this doesn’t have nuts, soy, or wheat in it so it is more versatile Valentine’s gift.

Or you could just use this edible slime recipe for yourself! 

Edible Slime Recipe

We actually adapted this recipe from Imperial Sugar. I never realized how many fun craft recipes they had until recently. Who knew sugar could be so versatile!

How to Make Valentine’s Edible Slime:

  1. Place the  condensed milk, sugar, and cornstarch into the sauce pan. Mix until well-blended.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. Let mixture cool down completely before giving it to your child.  You can even place it into the refrigerator until cooled.
  5. Once cooled, add the conversation heart candies (or sprinkles), and stir well.
  6. 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!

Make edible slime red and in a jar and to make it more special add orange, pink, blue, green, yellow, and purple conversation hearts in it.

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.
