Edible Candy Corn Slime Recipe
There’s something about candy corn that is so fun and nostalgic – but let’s be honest, it’s gross. (Ok, to be fair, it’s one of those love it or hate it things…our girls always want it!)
My daughter begs me to buy a bag every year, and without fail, we get it home and quickly remember how much we don’t like it.
So, stuck with a bag of candy corn that we were not going to eat, I decided to get creative and started experimenting with various concoctions to try to make a fun edible candy corn slime.
I initially wanted to just use melted candy corn to make a edible candy slime similar to my (now viral) Starburst Candy Slime recipe, but the candy corn hardened really quickly using that method.
However, mixing the candy corn into our Marshmallow Slime recipe ended up being perfect! It still hardens a bit faster than our other candy slime recipes, but you can easily return it to it’s former stretchy state by warming it up in the microwave (just be super careful as it can get hot quickly).
This super simple candy corn slime can be made in a couple different ways.
I wanted to have those pretty stripes for the pictures so I chopped up the candy corn and made a yellow and an orange batch, but you can simply mix it all together for one big batch of orange edible candy slime.
You can also microwave the candy corn right away with the marshmallows, or mix them in halfway through – I prefer to just get it all zapped together in the first place (even if it resembles molten lava for a couple minutes).
This recipe does get HOT so I do not recommend having children help with the heating stage or the kneading stage until you have checked that the slime is no longer hot.
However, once you’re done, the results are a fun stretchy edible candy slime that tastes like candy corn marshmallows!

Ingredients for Candy Corn Slime
- 1 cup candy corn
- 1 1/2 cups marshmallows
- 1-2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, as needed
Tip: this edible slime can be stored in a ziplock bag in between uses and reheated for 25 seconds when you want to play again. It will get hot, so a grown-up must check it before handing it off to kids. You may need to add more powdered sugar as you play and you may want to rub some oil on your hands if your hands get sticky.

How to Make Edible Candy Corn Slime
If making a two-tone striped candy slime, chop off the white and yellow ends of the candy corn and place in a small bowl. Place the orange centers in a second bowl.
Combine 1/2 Tablespoon of oil, 3/4 cup of marshmallows and one color of the candy corn in a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl.
Zap for 25 seconds, stir well, and reheat as needed.
(If just making one color of candy corn slime, combine 1 Tablespoon of oil, 1 1/2 cups marshmallows and 1 cup candy corn together.)
When the marshmallows are completely melted, stir in a couple tablespoons of icing sugar. The mixture will be hot so be careful.
Fold the molten lava (I mean, candy corn mixture) onto a cutting board and when cool enough to knead, knead with the icing sugar until not sticky.
Repeat with second color batch.
Twist the two slimes together and stretch!
Reheat for 25 seconds if the slime gets too hard and take precautions to ensure the slime is cool enough for the kids to touch.
