Slime is a great gift for everyone on your list, because it’s easy to make in bulk and you can customize it however you like. Here’s our favorite edible slime recipe—try making it with fun winter colors (red and green swirl slime?), flavors (peppermint or pumpkin spice), and add-ins (like chocolate chips, sprinkles, or candies).

You ready? Let’s round up your supplies.

1. Put the marshmallows in a microwave-safe dish and microwave them in 30 second increments until melted. Be careful not to overheat or they will burn. Carefully remove the dish from the microwave, add a drop of food coloring, and stir. If you want to use flavoring, now’s the time to add a drop of that, too. Then gradually stir in about ⅔ cup of powdered sugar. This part is not an exact science; it might take a few tries until you figure out your favorite way of doing it. Keep adding sugar until the mixture is thick but not too sticky.

2. Dust your clean countertop with ½ cup of powdered sugar and drop the slime onto it.

3. Dip your fingers in oil and knead the mixture until it resembles the slime you know and love. Now is the time to mix in your fun add-ins.

4. Once your slime is ready, put it into the jar and seal it with the lid. Grab your ribbon and tie a bow around the part where the lid meets the jar. Write the recipient’s name on a label and then stick it to the front of the jar.

Tip: You can create a few batches of different colors and swirl the slimes together.
