Candy and blood-stained glass are both common elements of Halloween. Why not combine the two with this sweet bloody sucker?
How I created this Bloody Sucker Recipe
I’ve always loved fall – I mean what’s not to love about comfort food, brisk clean air and colorful fall leaves! And it doesn’t hurt that my favorite holidays are all close at hand now too!
Thanksgiving and of course Halloween! I will say since being on the Halloween Baking championship on Food Network last year Halloween has become even more fun!
So today I’m sharing another Halloween Party food that I made for my Watch Party last year AND the Creative Foodies all have some party foods for you as well (link here).
So… blood – it’s the easiest way to halloween up ANY food! These are just suckers that instead of being on sticks I cut to the size of slides and added some red candy coloring to to create the “blood”. SUPER easy too!
Just take me to the Homemade Sucker Recipe already!

Tips to Make the Perfect Edible Blood and Candy Glass
- The Silpat mat left small impressions on the slides – so if you want yours to be perfectly flat you’ll want to stick with just using parchment paper, personally I kinda like the texture.
- IF you want it to be perfectly clear – without the yellowing you see here that comes from the heat, then using isomalt and distilled water is a better option (and would be sugar free too).
To make these Homemade Suckers you’ll need
- Candy thermometer
- Candy flavoring (any flavor!)
- Silpat mats or parchment paper; I use the Silpat mats
