Our passion here is in providing slime recipes that everyone can enjoy, and that means making sure we have plenty of cool recipes for edible slime to share too! Some kids like to taste stuff but still want to enjoy the slimy experience. Making and playing with slime is an amazing tactile sensory experience (cool science too) whether you make it with borax or gummy bears!



Yes, we love our classic slime recipes using proper slime activators like liquid starch, saline solution, and borax powder, but we also love these new edible slime recipe ideas below too. Completely borax free, if you are looking for something a little different, start with the ingredients in your kitchen pantry.

Edible slime can be made of…

  • Candy
  • Condensed milk
  • Chocolate
  • Cornstarch
  • Corn syrup
  • Powdered sugar
  • Marshmallows
  • Oil

Read on to find out how to make edible slime your kids will love!


Some kids are still in the tasting everything phase of life and our traditional slimes are NOT taste-safe, even just a bite. Therefore, you need an edible slime recipe instead.

Or maybe you need to accommodate kids of multiple ages and need to make sure everyone has a safe experience (just in case there is a nibbler in the group).

Some kids might also have sensitive skin to the common ingredients in slime activators, especially if they are already sensitive to laundry detergents, soaps, and cleaning products.

Lastly, you may just not have access to some of the different supplies needed to make our basic slime recipes.  But you do have the edible slime ingredients mentioned above in your pantry!


Yes and no! Edible slime is non-toxic and made without borax. However, is it a slimy snack for your kids to chow down on? NO! Although everything is labeled edible, I like to think of these slime recipes as TASTE-SAFE.

If your kids taste it, they will be safe. With that said, some of these recipes will be tastier than others anyway. Some kiddos will naturally want to taste slime and some won’t. Always keep the needs of your kids in mind when making slime!

DISCLAIMER: Please double check all food allergies among kids making these slime.  We never recommend that edible slime be eaten as a snack.

No more having to print out a WHOLE blog post for just one recipe!
