Let the spine-tingling good times begin now that Halloween is approaching! No Halloween party is complete without blood, particularly notably delectable fake blood. This is true regardless of whether you’re masquerading as a vampire or a werewolf for the occasion. 

Because of this predicament, I’m presenting a great lunch that will make the night last an eternity! Interested? By putting edible blood in your Halloween party appetizers’ ingredient list, you may create a celebratory environment for your guests. 

As an example, even a little dribble or generous sprinkling of blood on a cupcake or at the bottom of a drinking glass will serve to build the mood for your macabre celebration.

I have no objections to the use of small amounts of food coloring; nevertheless, Halloween is a celebration of excessive sugar intake, and limiting the use of colors is one way to have more fun without the dire implications, such as hyperactivity in children that may occur.

Important notes

  • The temperature at which your temperature determines the jam stage changes. Cook the sugar syrup until it is 3-5 degrees below the jam stage. Therefore use this “how to make fake blood without corn syrup” recipe to determine the temperature at which it should be cooked based on your elevation and the amount of sugar syrup you have.
  • Despite the fact that this blood is created without the use of food coloring, it will stain clothing and furnishings.
  • Check to see that your cherry juice is still fresh! If kept on the shelf for an extended period of time, it will oxidize and become brown. Furthermore, new blood is not brown!
