I’ve never seen a bigger collection of slime on a human being than on her. She also kills me because she hides it all over the house so that her brothers don’t get into it. 

So that’s why we decided to make this fun recipe together. We took the basics from our  Marshmallow  Play dough and ran with it a bit. Making this fun Candy Corn Slime recipe. 

Candy Corn is actually an old candy recipe.It dates  back to the 1880s. The Goelitz Candy Co. began making it in 1900 before the family-run operation changed its name to the Jelly Belly Candy Co., which still produces candy corn today.

In the early day of Candy Corn history, it was made with cooked sugar, corn syrup, marshmallow and other ingredients into a syrup in large kettles and then poured by hand into cornstarch trays imprinted with the kernel shape.Candy Corn Slime
 
Today, of course, all the work is done by machines. 
Candy corn is a really fun looking treat, whether you love the taste or not. Did you know if you stack it all together it even looks like a corn cob?

This is a fun project but you must be warned this edible slime taste like taffy and after playing with it for a bit will probably resemble it more than anything else. So just make sure your kids don’t eat it all.

If you feel it loses its luster a bit, dab a little bit more coconut oil on it to help give it shine. If the slime starts stiffening up microwave it for about 10-15 seconds to make it stretchy again. Don’t hand it over to your kids right away because this thing gets hot.
