Halloween's the one time of year when you get to pull out the big guns. In fact, we challenge you to think of a good reason not to rock fake blood in some form or another this Halloween. Whether you're thinking classic, like a zombie or a vampire, or even trending, like a gory Harley Quinn or an undead Kardashian, this fake blood is realistic enough to work.
Making Hollywood-style fake blood is easier than you think, and it can be done with ingredients you probably already have around the house. If you've got flour, food coloring and some corn syrup, you're about 10 minutes away from homemade ghoulish fun — for Halloween or just for fun!
Yields about 2 tablespoons
It's obvious why you need the syrup and red food coloring, but using those ingredients alone will produce the same fake-looking goop you buy in the Halloween aisle. To properly adjust your mix, it's important to understand the effects the other ingredients have on your fake blood so you know how to adjust the recipe to your unique needs. For the best results, try making some ahead of time so you can experiment.
