Recipe How to Make Snot Boogers

British researchers are at it again!

The British Society for Immunology have developed a recipe to make your very own authentic-appearing snot of various colors of tan thru green.

Of course, you can make your own the natural way, but here's a more sanitary way with kitchen supplies.

You need:
  • 1 tbsp Gelatine powder
  • 1 tbsp Hot water
  • 2 tbsp Sugar syrup (corn syrup or golden syrup)
  • Food colouring
  • A plastic container/bag
  • Paint brush or dropper
To make your own snot:

1) In a container, mix the gelatine and hot water together, stir quickly until the gelatin dissolves.

2) Using a paint brush or dropper add a very small amount of food colouring.

3) Add the sugar syrup and mix until it goes stringy and snot like.

4) Enjoy!

Keep your snot in the fridge or you might find something growing on it!
