Our local news channel features Steve Spangler, the Science Guy, and he ALWAYS has some great ideas for kids.   Today it was very timely --- fake blood.    This recipe would have been convenient some years depending on the costume for the year.

 

ITEMS NEEDED:

16 oz. powdered sugar

1 oz. red food coloring

1 Tablespoon cocoa powder

8 oz. water

Blender

Paper towels for cleanup

 

Add one of these items at a time and be sure it blends well, then add the next item.    When he was on the news, depending on the consistency, or color, he added Hershey's syrup and corn starch to thicken the "blood".

OK, I am going to pass on the fake blood, lol. I never went for the horror costumes. I always go to the fun side.

Hello Joan - as far as recipes and talent in the kitchen goes, I don't have much.  Finding real blood in that room is a possibility so I use cutlery and tools with care.

Jeff, I once was part of an event for Safeway years ago, and was in a coffin, needed some blood.....

Hi Joan... all I can say if "oh, yuck!" But I'm sure there are lots of people out there who love the idea of the fake blood.

Candace, some costumes need a bit of blood to make it more real, and this recipe will come in handy.

Good morning Joan - I am sure that I will see this on one street in our neighborhood.  They always go all out on Halloween.
