I scream. You scream. We all scream for eyes cream, which we all know is blood. The wonderful gooey crap that keeps you meat bags’ tasty brains alive.

Since it is that time of year in which we all like to play pretend, I’d like to tell you about a couple of ways to make some blood using corn syrup, chocolate syrup, food coloring, chocolate powder and all kinds of other tasty things.

The most common recipe includes:

  • 1 cup corn syrup (commonly sold as Karo Syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons of red food coloring
  • A few drops of green food coloring

Throw all of that in a blender, mix for a few seconds and presto! You’re good to go. Of course the amounts of each will vary to your preference in consistency or color. So don’t be afraid to experiment.

You can actually find a ton of blood recipes online, but we thing the ones here are the best.

If you’re interested in sprucing up your undead look for the big event, then stay tuned this week for information on our annual zombie make up workshop, where we’ll go over how to make things like fake blood, torn flesh and proper zombie attire.

Have fun and remember, WE’RE COMING TO GET YOU!
