Don't forget to wash your hands if you plan on sampling the end result! Make sure anyone else who's helping washes their hands, too.

Microwave each color for 30-second intervals until the Starbursts are completely melted.

And make sure to watch the candy closely so that it doesn't scorch or burn around the edges.

Drop the melted candy into powder mixture and lightly stir everything together to combine. You'll work everything together more thoroughly in the next step.

Check the temperature of the melted Starburst before removing from the bowl.

The candy should be warm to the touch so you can still work with it but not so hot that it burns your hands.

Continue mixing and incorporating the Starburst into the mixture until the candy reaches the desired consistency and isn't sticky anymore.

You might not use all of your powdered mixture, and that's OK. You can set it aside to use for the other colors.

Once the powdered mixture is completely combined with the Starburst, you can keep playing with your slime or just go ahead and eat it.
