The SLIME craze is still going strong. I see slime everywhere! I have a fun new edible slime for you to try today. This week we made edible Laffy Taffy Slime! The was a fun one. My kids and I loved making it. My kids loved playing with and eating it. AND, you can laugh along the way as you read the silly jokes from the wrappers to each other.
This is in the wake of my Starburst Slime that has taken off and become one of my most popular posts this past month. The Edible Chocolate Slime has also been wildly popular. The latest adventure is our Marshmallow Slime. We have also made non-toxic Static Slime, too!
I have a whole Edible Slime Recipes book! Check it out!
How to Make Laffy Taffy Slime:
This is made the same way as the Starburst Slime. You just need a few ingredients:
Laffy Taffy Candy
Cornstarch (also called Corn Flour I believe)
Unwrap your taffy taffy candies and put them into glass bowls, divided by color.
Put the glass bowl into a small pot of water and heat. Watch carefully and stir as much as possible. It was tricky to stir, so I sometimes removed the bowl to stir it. You do not want water to get into the candy mixture, so pour any out that gets into the bowl as it cooks.
Mix powdered sugar and cornstarch together- equal parts. I think we used 2-3 Tablespoons of each. Dust your work surface with this mixture.
Once the candy is full melted, turn it onto the prepared surface. Let it cool for a minute or two and then knead it a bit while working in the powdered sugar mixture.
This laffy taffy slime is most malleable while it is warm. If it hardens, pop it into the microwave for 10 seconds to soften it again. My kids loved stretching, twisting, swirling and playing with this candy slime.
Is powdered sugar just regular sugar? Can I use flour instead of cornstarch and will it be still edible?

Powdered sugar is also called confectioners sugar or icing sugar I believe. It is in powder form not granulated. I am guessing you are out of the U.S. where cornstarch is also called corn flour? You could skip that & do just the sugar, I believe.
flour is raw, so you would want to bake it first, but it might not taste amazing 😉
can i just microwave the candy instead of using the stove
Karyn Tripp says
Yup! It works well this way, too.
