Hello I don't know if this has been answered before and excuse me if it has, but I am making the halloween finger cookies, and I need a recipe for real looking edible blood. Any suggestions??? Thanks to all.

red food coloring mixed with piping gel. this looked the most realistic to me. i made a voodoo cake and tried strawberry filling inside the cake and it just looked pink. with the piping gel you can control the darkness of the "blood" and make it to your liking. thumbs_up.gif

I don't know how "oozey" you want it, but clear corn syrup and food color makes pretty good blood.

I USE CORN SYRUP AND RED FOOD COLORING

Corn syrup and red gel food color, plus a little chocolate syrup to make it less "clear" because real blood is not clear.

classic theatre recipe:

corn syrup (or honey for thicker)

corn starch (to make opaque -- less clear)

red food coloring

BLUE food coloring (real blood is NOT a true red -- a few drops for arterial blood, more for venous blood)

peppermint or other extract the actor will like

I've used cherry pie filling before and it worked great. Just puree it until smooth then strain to get out any leftover pieces. Also tastes great.
