It's a BLOODY Miracle and Yummy Too!!

With Halloween almost upon us I thought it a good time to perfect a recipe for edible fake blood, not only for cakey usefulness but a great addition to any Halloween costume... for example... :)

So here's an amazingly quick & simple recipe for sweet & tasty fake blood!!

Golden Syrup
Hot Water
Cocoa Powder
Red Food Colouring

To make and do:
Mix 3 dessert spoons of Golden Syrup for every 1 dessert spoon of hot water until well mixed.
Add red food colouring (colouring paste is best to avoid watering down the blood too much but liquid colouring would be fine and dandy).
Add lots of red colouring... until a good blood colour is created.
Now add half a teaspoon of cocoa powder, and mix thoroughly... for a while(!), the little pockets of cocoa will float to the surface when left unstirred so you can see if any are left, once completely mixed this should give the blood a denser colour.
This should be a perfect consistency for blood, but if not thin with hot water or thicken with slightly more cocoa.

Ta da...!
Happy Halloween!!!!
