Chocolate Blood

Recipe by EdsGirlAngie
READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 3/4 cup


  • 12
  • 1
    tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 3 -4
    tablespoons corn syrup
  • 12 - 1
    teaspoon red food coloring
  • 2
    drops yellow food coloring or 2 drops green food coloring (optional)


  • Mix cocoa powder into the water before adding the other ingredients.
  • After adding the rest, blend well, then wait for it to settle a bit.
  • Either skim the bubbles and chocolate scum off the top with the edge of a facial tissue, or pour the mixture into another container.
  • The longer it sits, the more the cocoa tends to settle to the bottom, which oddly mimicks the effect of real blood separating.
  • If you splatter this mixture onto cloth, it makes neat two-part marks which dry into pretty convincing bloodstains.
  • If you let it run from a victim's mouth and then let it dry, the blood darkens and cakes to the skin in much the same way real blood does.
