Blood Slide Suckers

Straight from the pages of Dexter, these bloodslide suckers are one of the more unique recipes we’ve found, it is from Instructables.com. It is also one of the more challenging to make. We recommend a bit of patience with this one!

Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
2 Tbs water
red food dye
bamboo skewer or tooth pic

Directions:
1. Line a few baking sheets with nonstick baking mats or parchment paper.

2. Bring sugar, corn syrup, and 2 Tbs water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Don’t stir, but occasionally wash down sides of pan with a pastry brush dipped in cold water to prevent crystals from forming; boil until mixture turns golden, 5 to 7 minutes.

3. Pour the melted sugar mixture in a line down the center of the pan. Using a skewer or the flat edge of a large knife, spread sugar into a thin flat sheet. Glass slides are pretty thin, so the thinner the better. It will also be easier to cut in the next steps.

4. Once you have the mixture spread into a flat sheet, let it cool and harden for 5-10 minutes. Once the mixture is hard, pull it away from the mat or parchment. If its super thin, try not to crack it.

5. Place the blade of a large knife (not necessarily your best) directly into your burner to heat. If you have an electric stove, you can use a lighter. Once the blade is hot, begin to cut your sheets of sugar into strips. Cut edges to be the length of a real slide. Its good to have a glass slide to use as a template.This step can be a bit annoying. Don’t worry if you break a few, it happens. Reheat the blade for each cut. Between each cut, wash your blade off with water to keep the sugar from burning to your blade. I don’t suggest using your best knife, since this heating and cooling isn’t the best treatment for your chef’s blade. If the edges are really rough, dip your finger and water and smooth them out.

7. Take slides out of fridge. Using a tooth pic or a bamboo skewer, paint on the blood circle in the center. You don’t need too much. A small droplet off the tip of your tooth pic will be enough. If you put too much on, it will run all over the slide and make a huge mess. Refridgerate again until the dye is dry and you’re done!

You can serve them up with a pile of latex gloves to protect the hands while handling these dangerous items or you can serve with tweezers. Or you can visit a party store and see if they have any fake slide kits.
