These words are used interchangeably, but here are my thoughts. This marshmallow slime recipe is non-toxic, but it’s certainly full of sugar. We made this slime without cornstarch, so that it’s more edible.
You can certainly have a taste or two here and there, and this is especially important if you have a kid who likes to put everything in his or her mouth! I like to call these kinds of slime recipes taste safe.

Add marshmallows to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 sec intervals to melt. You don’t want to over heat them as they will burn!
MARSHMALLOW WILL BE HOT!
You can also make this recipe a cup or two of marshmallows at a time.
Remove the bowl carefully from microwave using potholders as needed. Stir carefully to evenly distribute heat. Heat again if needed.
Add powdered sugar to melted marshmallow mixture. This isn’t an exact science but you can add 1/4 cup at a time if you use the whole bag.
If you try a small batch or about a cups worth of marshmallows, you can start with a tablespoon of powdered sugar.
Mix the marshmallows and powdered sugar thoroughly. Repeat as needed for thickening.
Making marshmallow slime with just marshmallows and powdered sugar is going to be a messy experience! You can help to reduce the stickiness with a touch of cooking oil.
Eventually you will need to dig your hands into the bowl when the mixture has cooled sufficiently. Our tip is to coat your hands with cooking oil!
No clean hands here, but it washes up easily. Finger licking good.
Go ahead and remove your marshmallow slime from the bowl and place on top of more powdered sugar. You can use a cutting board, cookie sheet, or craft tray to contain the mess!
