How To Make A Valentine’s Day Slime Recipe
To make this edible slime recipe, start by gathering your ingredients.
Many of these ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!
Use the following ingredients:
- Powdered sugar
- White frosting (pre-made)
- Neon pink food coloring
- Heart shaped sprinkles
- Coconut oil (optional)
This edible slime combines powdered sugar and premade white frosting that smells sugary delicious!
While you don’t want your children consuming a ton of sugar, it is taste safe for children who still tend to mouth objects.
There are many different types of slime recipes available that will give you different textures.
This edible slime will give you a soft and smooth texture just like butter.
Steps To Make The Edible Valentine’s Day Slime Recipe
Grab a mixing bowl and combine half of the premade frosting with 1 cup of powdered sugar.
Mix well. The powdered sugar will begin to clump with the frosting and eventually you will need to use your hands to make sure they are combined well.
At this point you should be getting a smooth texture of slime that stick together and can form a ball in your hand.
Use a cutting board and flatten the slime out with your hand.
Squeeze a small amount neon food coloring directly onto the slime.
Fold the slime over and over until the food coloring is mixed well and the entire slime is pink in color.
Now you can decide on how much neon coloring you want in the slime.
That’s why I choose to use white frosting so I could get a true neon pink color instead of a pastel.
However, instead of white frosting you can substitute it with pink frosting and skip the neon pink food coloring to eliminate one step in this slime making process.
To make the buttery texture smoother I added a tablespoon of cold-pressed coconut oil to the slime.
This gave it a smoother less sticky texture.
Of course, adding the coconut oil is optional! So, if you like the texture of the butter slime, then you can skip this step.
Once you are satisfied with the neon color of the Valentine’s Day slime recipe grab the candied heart sprinkles and fold them into the slime.
Have your kids immerse themselves in this slime sensory experience!
