Blood Splattered Popsicles
So I don’t know if I wrote about this before. but usually I am a huge baby when it comes to scary stuff. I was asked several times to go to a haunted house, and I said no because I didn’t want to make my friends pay for the therapy bills I would need post visit.
The closest thing to being remotely scary that I can watch is The Walking Dead. Yeah, exactly. Not scary. But I have to watch it during the day. When I watched the first season, I would bring a knife with me to walk the dog at night.
Commercials for scary movies? Nope nope nope. I don’t like walking around in the dark, so lots of holding my pee in at night.
That aside, I do love Halloween for it’s fun recipes and to admire all of the slutty costumes.
I teamed up with Budget Saver to create blood splattered popsicles.
You will want to use Budget Saver popsicles for this project. They are very affordable, but still a quality find. Available at most grocery stores, their website even offers you a store locator to make sure you can find them:
Ingredients for Blood Splattered Popsicles
Budget Saver White Popsicles from the Tropic Twin Pop variety bag
Begin making your blood splattered popsicles by making your edible fake blood. Mix corn syrup, preserve, water and a few dabs of food coloring to make it a vibrant red.
Take note that the given measurements are a starting point. Fruit preserves vary in thickness, so you will need to test out your blood splatter. You want to add enough so it is thick enough to stick to popsicle, but not so thick that it makes it difficult to splatter mixture onto popsicles.
Remove popsicles from plastic and wipe one side with a paper towel to remove moisture and excess juice.
Place in the inside of a deep baking dish that is lined with wax or parchment paper. Now to transform your regular popsicles to blood splattered popsicles. Dip a clean toothbrush into raspberry blood sauce and flick at popsicle from different directions.
Place blood splattered popsicles on paper towel in freezer for about 30 minutes to stop melting. Serve immediately. You can serve them at a later time, the blood will simply stain the popsicles more as time progresses. If this is the case, simply sit blood splattered popsicles on paper towel in an airtight container.
Walking Dead, Halloween, and Dexter fans rejoice.
