When I saw Martha Stewart's lollipops recipe, I thought it was a good idea but BORING! I tried to brainstorm more gruesome fillings but the lollipop idea was just as boring as before. Then I started thinking of what’s really scary. Serial killers! I immediately thought of Dexter and his blood slides.
For any of you who aren’t familiar with the show, Dexter is about a serial killer of the same name, who works by day as a forensic analyst for the Miami police department, and by night, cleansing the city of the evil criminals who slip through the cracks of our faulty judicial system. Every serial killer has to keep his mementos and Dexter’s trophy case, consists of a box of slides, each containing one drop of blood from each victim.
For this years gruesome Halloween treat, I decided to create a trophy case of my own. Here’s my recipe and directions for Dexter's blood slide suckers. They're super simple to make and cheap!
Even if you don’t know about the show, blood slides are still gross. You can tell people they are blood samples infected with Ebola! Bio-hazards are super scary!
