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 (scroll to the bottom).
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!
- 2 C granulated sugar
- 2/3 C water
- 1/2 C light corn syrup
- 3 drops candy flavoring
- red candy dye
- combine water, sugar, syrup in a saucepan over med heat
- when the sugar has dissolved turn heat up, and simmer
- Heat to hard crack stage 310°F
- stir in flavoring
- pour over a silpat mat, rotate back and forth to get it flat
- when it's just started to set but not hard (about 15 mins) use a pizza cutter to cut strips - 1 inch x 3 inches
- use the red candy coloring to paint "blood" onto each of the slides
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 wax paper or 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).
