Easy Edible Fake Blood perfect for decorating Halloween desserts and treats. So easy to make with a couple of ingredients.
Edible Fake Blood
I love how easy this edible blood is to make! It looks really cool on cupcakes, Halloween cakes, cookies, or any Halloween treats.
It is sweet so you may not want to use it on savory recipes unless you are ok with a bit of a sugar added to them. I love drizzling drops along the side of treats so it looks like there is blood spatter.
It is quick and easy to make and you can store it in the refrigerator. We make up a mason jar of fake edible blood a couple weeks before Halloween so we can easily add it to Halloween treats.
This edible fake blood recipe takes minutes to prepare and looks epic. We love filling a Jello Shot Syringe with the red fake blood and letting it drip across our serving platter.
- Corn Syrup
- Red gel food coloring
Optional - cornstarch
Chocolate syrup - If you want a darker red blood color you can add in a bit of chocolate syrup until the color is perfect.
Lidded Container - We used a mason jar that was easy to shake and mix the color together.
Spoon/Skewer - We use a long wooden skewer to stir everything together.
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. I use a baking sheet every time I am working with this fake blood. I really want to make sure I do not get red food coloring on our white counters.
Paper Towel - Make sure to keep paper towels and cleaner near by just in case.
If you use cornstarch to thicken the fake blood mixture you will want to stir it often. If it sits in the fridge for a while you may end up with a brick of fake blood at the bottom of your container.
These candy eyes have blood spots on them which works great with this blood.
If you are worried about adding to much sugar to a recipe you can also use strawberry jam or raspberry jam.
If you don't have Karo Corn Syrup you can also use glucose syrup.
Make sure to store in a small bowl with a lid or storage container/sealed jar so the red blood can not spill.
