And yes, I’m an idiot. And also incredibly lazy. But it’s a busy Halloween and I only have time for a 3-ingredient blood brew. What’s a damsel to do?
Ingredients: Corn syrup, red food coloring, dark cocoa powder. Ignore the cornstarch in the picture. Again, I was too lazy to use it.
Directions: Pour 2/3 cup of corn syrup into a glass bowl. I used pyrex because the red food coloring we’ll add later will stain plastic.
Next, add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder into the syrup.
Once you mix it all in, it should look a bit like this.
Add lots of red food coloring to give it a dark plum, reddish, veinous color. There’s no exact science to it. Just keep squirting the food coloring in until you’re happy with the color. And presto! Fake blood in a bowl.
What can you do with fake blood? Why, all sorts of fun things…like filling your tub with spatter and living out your Dominatrix Vampire fantasies. This formula will stain clothing and skin, somewhat. Best use bleach to clean up. If you’re in a pinch, this no-fuss recipe will guarantee a very bloody Halloween! Have fun!
