  1. I was a bit confused when I was cooking it. I didn’t know what thickness to expect out of something that had already been thick.

  5. ty for the recipy :)

  6. this was SUPER sweet, I cooked it for about 40 minutes but could not get it to reach slime. It was more like a super sweet pudding. The kids enjoyed it though.

  7. cool………………………………….

  8. where can i get cornstarch

  9. I have a question can i use karo syrup for this because its the only thing i have

  10. We were not able to make the goo – it is way too sticky. And, we cooked it for about 40 min.

  11. I have a few questions. How long do you have to cook it on the stovetop for? I tried but I wasn’t able to get it transparent like the picture. Also, I need to make slime that will be good for the next day. Do you discourage putting it in the fridge?

  12. Really like that I can link this to Facebook… great chance to hint at things for my grandchildren without having to “wait” for the parents to read my email!

  13. This recipe works, but it takes FOREVER to get the mixture to fully thicken. It took me at least 45 minutes from the time I lit the stove to the time I put the food coloring in. Maybe it was because heat was pretty low. Next time maybe I’ll try “medium” heat instead.

  14. haha kool
