Blue Peter: Halloween: Peanut Butter Fake Blood
Look even scarier this Halloween by making your own fake blood!
To make your fake blood you will need: Peanut butter, golden syrup, red food colouring, corn flour and some chocolate sauce (optional).
TIP: Smooth peanut butter gives you a gruesome result. Chunky peanut butter will look okay, but it's harder to work with. Use an apron or old clothes when making the blood and cover worksurfaces as the mixture may stain.
STEP ONE: Mix a small spoon of golden syrup with a couple of large spoons of peanut butter until you reach a thick paste. If you leave the mixture on the side for a while it will thicken a bit, making it look even more frightening!
STEP TWO: Slowly add single drops of red food colouring until the mixture is dark red - the darker the better!
STEP THREE: We've added some chocolate sauce to get a darker colour too.
STEP FOUR: If you need a thicker mixture, slowly add corn flour.
When the mixture is quite thick, spread small amounts over the back of your hands or even around your mouth to create a frightening look that will scare your friends and family!
