You will need:
500g of frozen peas
One spring onion
750ml of boiling water
Vegetable stock concentrate to taste or as a stock cube
One ball of mozzarella
Firstly, cook the frozen peas and spring onion in the boiling water with the stock until tender and cooked through. Remove and get rid of the spring onion once the peas are soft enough to be blitzed into a soup.
Chop up your mozzarella roughly and pop it into the blender. Blend n three batches, pouring the vile green and slimy soup into the pan and heating gently to melt the cheese and peas better together.
The stringiness of the cheese and the yucky snot colour of the veggies make this a simple but spooky dish which is perfect for your witches and wizards. The soup should make up to one litre which is enough for the kids and you, depending on how many sweets you've already gotten through! Just remember your Gookie Dough dessert. *Adapted from Nigella.com*

Take your black eraser and use scissors to cut into little pieces, these will be your 'chocolate chips'. Use clear nail varnish to paint each off the pieces so it stops the rubber from shredding and ruining the slime.
It's recommended that you use the American measuring cups for this DIY. Mix one cup of glue and one cup of water in a bowl. Then add the baking soda. This is used as it creates firmness. Pop in the vanilla extract so it smells yummy and gives it a good stir. Everything in the bowl should be thoroughly combined. Add the saline solution which enables the stickiness. You should see that the slime starts to pull away from the bowl and has become rubberier.
Feel free to use cookie cutters to create realistic cookies! Sprinkle in your chocolate chips and voila. You have NON-EDIBLE Gookie Dough that is super cool to play with. *Warning, aliens may appear!*
