PB&J Butter Slime Recipe
First, I am just going to start off by stating what I hope should be obvious… THIS SLIME IS NOT EDIBLE.
If you’re looking for an edible slime, we have several amazing edible slimes such as:
- Edible Honey Slime
- Edible Birthday Cake Slime
- Edible Apple Pie Slime
- Edible Candy Slime
- Edible Cranberry Slime
This slime is called butter slime because of it’s smooth, buttery texture. After making our original butter slime recipe (in yellow), my daughter and I thought it would be fun to do a PB&J-inspired version with purple and light brown butter slimes.
She had so much fun spreading the slime with a butter spreader, twisting the two colors together and squishing it over and over again until the colors eventually combined to make a pretty light purple color. The slime stayed super squishy and stretchy – as you can see in this picture below:
But, unlike most slimes, butter slime really sticks to itself. It’s not drippy or messy – so kids can stretch it out or squish it on tables without you having to do a big clean up afterwards.
What kind of clay do you use for butter slime? While there are a few people who are adamant you need to use Model Magic clay for butter slime, I actually liked the texture (and repeat use) of using a regular modelling clay. The model magic butter slime was fluffier and had a thick texture with awesome resistance, while the modelling clay butter slime was smoother and while thick it could be squished a lot more.

How to Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Butter Slime
Combine half of the glue and half of the shaving cream until completely combined – being careful not to overmix.
Add half of the baking soda, stir well, and then add half of the contact solution.
Stir the slime until it forms a cohesive ball.
Pick it up and knead it a bit, then add food coloring if using.
Knead the purple modelling clay into the slime mixture until fully combined.
Your butter slime should be stretchy and a consistent texture.
Set the purple butter slime aside and repeat the recipe using the brown modelling clay.
Set out the finished slimes together with some pretend play tools and let your kids mix them together. Eventually, they will take on a muted purple color but will still be fun to squish, stretch and play with.
