After Lisa published what seemed to be a very easy recipe yesterday for edible, fake blood, I thought this would be a good how-to video for us to do, so we did.

You talk about quick and easy. This is probably the easiest recipe I've seen yet for creating something that looks just like the real deal. There are no edits on the video other than snipping off the beginning and the end. This actually took us less than three minutes to do, including the explanation of what we were doing. You can't ask for much faster than that. Except maybe the real thing, which we do not recommend.

Keep in mind this is basically sugar and cocoa powder, very sticky and sweet. I can only imagine what kind of critters it might attract if you spill it in the wrong places and don't get it wiped up fast. Also remember red food coloring will stain just about anything you put it on, including counter tops, clothes, floors, carpet. Use at your own risk.

Have fun this Halloween, be safe and we hope you get mass quantities of the good candy.

Be sure you listen to the Wake Up Crew with Jim & Lisa and news-dude John Williams weekdays from 6-10 AM on Kicker 102.5. It wouldn't be any fun without you.
