This edible caramel slime is made with only 3 ingredients and is perfect for Fall sensory play for babies, toddlers and older children.
We love to experiment with different slime recipes. One of our favorite ways to play is to make edible slime so that we can sneak tastes as we create and play!
We have made edible marshmallow slime before and loved its fluffy texture. We thought we would experiment this time with Goetze’s Caramel Creams and make some stretchy slime to play with as we kick off Fall.
Stretchy Edible Caramel Slime
This edible caramel slime is super easy to make and takes only 3 ingredients. The caramel creams are perfect for this as the slime turns out quite fluffiy and stretchy.
What you need to make caramel slime:
2 cups unwrapped Goetze’s caramel creams
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup cornstarch (more or less might be needed)
To make the caramel slime:
Unwrap caramel creams and place in a microwave safe bowl. This is a fun step to do with kids as the unwrapping of candies is actually a great practice in fine motor skills.
Tip: Work in some learning with this step! Compare caramel creams, are there differences in shape and size? Can your child count 5 caramel creams? Older kids can estimate how many caramel creams will make 2 cups. Learning is everywhere!
Add coconut oil to the caramel creams and melt in the microwave by heating for 30 seconds, stirring, and repeating until easy to stir and all caramels are melted.
Add cornstarch to the melted caramels a little bit at a time. Keep adding cornstarch until your caramel slime is stretchy but no longer sticky on your hands.
Play! Kids can stretch, poke, and swirl this edible caramel slime. It’s thicker than many other slimes, almost like a cross between traditional slime and play dough, making it a bit easier to shape and mold.
This edible caramel slime is so much fun to play with, and encourages learning while making it. Plus, it’s edible, so if younger children end up with some in their mouths, it isn’t toxic.
Enjoy making this edible caramel slime with your kids, and have fun celebrating Fall!
I received the caramel candies from Goetze’s in exchange for writing this post. All opinions are my own.
