Harry Potter Jelly Slugs Ingredients
(makes approximately 10-12 slugs)
For the Blackberry Jelly Slugs recipe
150g fresh blackberries
1 tbsp golden caster sugar
6 gelatine leaves
approx. 750g sugar (for the temporary mould - the sugar can be dried and reused for another recipe after)
a few cocktail sticks
For the Edible Slime recipe
zest and juice of 1 lemon
green food colouring gel
50g caster sugar
25g butter (room temperature)
Homemade Jelly Slugs + Edible Slime Method:
To make the jelly gummy sweets for the jelly slugs being by placing the blackberries, sugar and water in a pan on a medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes until the fruits have softened and then transfer to a food processor.
Blend until smooth and then pass through a sieve, pressing through to get as much juice out as possible.
Bloom the gelatine by placing them into a bowl with some cold water and leaving for 5 minutes. Once softened squeeze to remove the excess water and add back into the pan with the blackberry juice, stirring through until dissolved. Transfer to a heatproof jug and allow to cool completely.
Pour your sugar into a square baking tin at least 2cm deep and level out with an offset spatula. Mould your fondant into a slug shape, turn upside down and leave for 30 minutes until hardened. Gently press the slugs into the sugar to make your indents
Using a pipette to ease the jelly mixture into the slug moulds and then place in the fridge to set for 2-4 hours.
While the jelly slugs are setting you can make the easy edible slime by juicing and zesting your lemon (Wizard Tip! Roll the lemon on a worktop before cutting to make it easier to juice).
Place a bowl over a pan of simmering water and add in the lemon juice and zest and then dye green with the food colouring. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg and sugar until light and frothy. Slowly pour the egg into the warm lemon juice, whisking continuously to prevent lumps forming.
Add in the butter and continue whisking as it melts. Keep heating and mixing for a further 5 minutes and you should notice the edible slime thicken up. (Wizard Tip! Don't worry if it's not completely thick, it will get even thicker as it cools).
Remove the slime from the heat and cover with cling film, pressing the film down to the surface to prevent a skin from forming.
Once the jelly slugs are completely set, remove from the sugar mould. (Wizard Tip! Break up the sugar, and sprinkle it out thinly leaving it to dry for a few hours. You can then sift it and pop it back into your bag to use as normal in another recipe)
Dip the jelly slugs into your edible slime so they're nice and evenly coated and then place them onto your serving dish. Take some additional slime to make a trail for the slugs as if they're moving!
So there you have it! A really easy jelly slugs recipe complete with a zesty edible slime made from lemon curd.
